As a long time print subscriber, I am disappointed that these special issues are not included for subscribers.

Hi Ultravista, First off we want to thank you for being a BYO subscriber. We typically publish 1-3 special issues each year. Including those as part of an annual 8-issue subscription would significantly increase the annual subscription rate which isn't something we want to force on any subscriber. At $28.00 for an annual, 8-issue subscription BYO's is the best per issue rate of all the homebrew magazines and we'd like to keep that rate reasonable for all.

Are these Available to others outside the STATES
Du99, yes, we mail our special issues anywhere in the world. Shipping is a bit more, but we have readers all over that order BYO subscriptions and special issues.

Was about to order the combo deal until I realized that the shipping for one magazine was $4.50 but the shipping for two magazines was $8.00. Does it really cost $3.50 more to ship one more magazine in the same package?

I know... it is the cost of a coffee at Starbucks, but $8 for shipping two magazines (67% of the advertised cost of the magazines themselves) seems exorbitant. I'll keep an eye out at the local home brew shops to hopefully be able to snag it without the high shipping.

I disagree. IMO, there is BYO and Zymurgy as the only home brew magazines. Both are great, and the special mags that BYO does are nice and worth the $8 or whatever they are. You have to consider the costs that go into the one off/recipe magazines BYO makes. The special issues are worth the money; you should skimp/complain about prices elsewhere I my opinion.

Hi IDoBleedBrew,

Believe me, we also wish shipping was less expensive. We put a lot of thought into trying to keep our shipping affordable while covering costs. In the instance of the Style Guide Combo the two issues puts the package over 13 oz. -- a weight which causes the US Postal Service rates to only offer Priority Mail service. So actually it costs us $4.25 more to ship the 2nd issue believe it or not. Normally our 2-8 units shipping rate is $9.00, but we cut it to $8.00 for the Style Guide Combo to keep it more reasonable. I understand if that shipping is too much for you and like your idea of buying at your LHBS. Let us know if you need help finding a supplier in your area that has copies. Happy brewing!

I look at in a different way. If I am going to pay $8 to ship it what else can I add to the basket to make it worth paying for the shipping. If I can't find something else I usually won't order.

I noticed the company is based in Escondido maybe a 15 minute drive from me. I was wondering if I could just go by and pick it up. Then thinking about driving a half an hour in Socal, $8 seems like a bargain.

Hey Photopilot,

Unfortunately the Escondido, California address is just our subscription customer service office and they aren't open to the public, plus they don't have our special issues anyway. Our editorial and business offices are in Manchester Center, Vermont (a considerably longer drive for you!). The Vermont office is where we produce the magazine and warehouse/ship all back issues and special issues. On the other hand, you could get "lost" on your drive to Escondido and wind up at Stone Brewing Co. world headquarters (something we do whenever we visit the subcription customer service office)! Cheers!
