Zymurgy = BYO. Both great mags. I don't get either anymore, I read them so quickly and they cover a lot of what you can find in this site. (but it was always a great day when one appeared in my mailbox! I'd take that sucker straight to the "reading room" and end up with my legs falling asleep by the time I reached the back cover )

All about beer is an interesting mag, nothing at all for the homebrewer. You can pick that one up at Barnes and Noble.

I subscribe to BeerAdvocate and BYO. Just joined AHA so I should start getting Zymurgy. Yes, most of the info is available online, but magazines are just great to read during downtime.

I get BYO. I used to get Zymurgy, BYO and Brewing Techniques. Yes, I go back a long way. I really liked BT back in the day.

Funny you should mention that. Zymurgy now is also available as eZymurgy. Just another benefit to AHA membership...

I used to subscribe to Zymurgy way back when it first started and it was a great magazine full of important homebrewing oriented info on materials, ingredients, techniques etc. Now I find it to be mostly a fan magazine for the AHA and its competitions - especially the competitions. Sometimes it seems that the whole magazine is devoted to "how to brew beer that will win competitions" rather than making great beer(not necessarily the same thing). If you're into competing, then I guess that's fine, but I find it to be a turn off.

I do pick up BYO at the bookstore and have serioulsy considered subscribing. I like its focus on materials, ingredients, techniques, styles and brewers - like Zymurgy was in the old days.
