Zymurgy did the same thing to me. SWMBO ordered a subscription in my name, and joined the HBA in my name, only to get a card in her name and the magazine in her name. She barely drinks for crying out loud, and now I can't easily reap the brewpub benefits from the membership without having her along. What joy is that ??

I have both. Similar magazines. Similar frustrations.

Well they made good. I received a package with a couple extra copies a great T-shirt a cool mug. It seems the person I had been dealing with is now a former employee. BYO is back in my graces!

It's good to hear that they came through. I wonder if they know how much publicity they get here at HBT?

My guess would be they do, but it's hard to say. Chris Colby posts on the greenboard, and if I were running a magazine I would certainly be checking out forums that pertained to the subject matter just as a matter of easy market research.
