What is the best beer magazine out there? Not really about beer brewing, but just beer in general?
Drinking beer while making beer is possibly the best idea ever had by a human.

The only one I get is BYO, so I'll go with that one.

i flipped through a copy of beer advocate at a homebrew store a while back. pretty impressive. hard to find on the shelves. not many people know it exists. it's interesting that came first, then the print version.

I prefer Zymurgy over BYO. Both are very good though.

If you are not a member of the AHS, you should join today. $38 a year is a fantastic deal for the magazine, pub discounts and supporting a great organization that aims to keep politicians from meddling with our hobby. The pub discounts alone usually make up for the cost of membership.

As far as general-interest beer magazines go, I haven't found any that seemed worth the purchase price.

I just picked up a copy of Beer at Borders yesterday. I was very pleasantly surprised. Kind of a mix between say Maxim and BYO. Its really cool what they do though. They focus mainly on US microbreweries and always have a section on homebrewing recipes and techniques. They also always have a multipage article on a particular style of beer. I though it was a really cool read. If you are looking for a homebrew mag go with BYO but if you want a really solid general beer mag go with Beer. Heres the link Beer Magazine - Everything you need for all things beer

Good call on Beer Magazine. I also picked it up at Borders and was very pleasantly surprised. Most recent issue is of course for St. Patty's Day and had good reviews of commercial beers, a few recipes, and just over all good stuff. I would highly recommend Beer Magazine and BYO of course... BYO is a pretty much a staple in the homebrewing community.

I've picked up draft magazine in the store a few times and really like it. My wife gave me a gift subscription for Christmas and I'm still waiting for the first one to arrive.
