I agree, but the pictures are very nice and the articles are still pretty good IMO. I've only checked out one issue, and they have articles on plenty of craft beer and foreign beers that I don't get much info on elsewhere.

I'm a sucker for nice pictures. Must be ingrained from years of looking at my dads hidden stash...

If you're talking homebrewing mags, Zymurgy and BYO are both good, but I think BYO now edges out. If you're talking beer mags, I really like All About Beer, especially after the redesign they did ~ a year ago. In fact, I need to renew my subscription this week. Draft and Beer were like Maxim to me, and I don't care for Maxim - what's the point? Buy Playboy or just cruise the Internet for more titillating eye candy, if that's what you're looking for!

Picked up a copy of Beer Mag the other night and it was like a Maxim for beer. Pretty pictures, some half-naked women and a few articles on homebrewing. I particularly liked the articles on new drinking games. I'll never play them, but it took me back to my college days of beer pong and Presidents and A**holes.

BYO is the best mag I can find on the newstands. Haven't found a Zymurgy here yet.
Poor planning on your part doesn't necessitate an emergency on mine.

Beer: Is there anything it can't do?

Questions about beer magazines:
Does BYO or Zymurgy have a section on commercial brews? Tasting notes of commercial styles? It is hard to tell from their respective website but both look to be completely about homebrewing, but it just seems like it is the perfect medium to also have commercial beer info.

I guess Zymurgy is good because it means getting a membership to AHA, which has to be a good thing, right?

Zymurgy gets huge props on the name. I had to google it to realize how great the name was.
