Two brothers started BeerAdvocate to give beer consumers a voice. What they ended up with was a massive forum for serious beer lovers to share their passion, questions, complaints, and more. There is more here than a discussion board: the sidebars are full of links to beer education, with information on beer styles, beer 101, news, and tasting, and reviews of hundreds of beers and gatherings of the BeerAdvocate community. But most of the site is dedicated to beer drinkers. The forum’s participants provide endless information and commentary on everything going on in the beer world, from summer beers to whether certain beer styles are healthier than others. The founders of BeerAdvocate have also launched BeerAdvocate magazine, with subscriptions available through this site, all in their mission to get people to respect beer.
