Celebrator Beer News began as a quarter-fold tabloid “Brewspaper” in January, 1988. It was the first publication in the country to focus exclusively on “microbrewed,” or what we now call “craft,” beer. Its original focus was on the craft beers and breweries of California but its circulation expanded to the Pacific Northwest and then to the Rocky Mountains and beyond. Celebrator’s original editorial content is provided by some of the best beer writers in the country with input from legendary observers of the beer scene such as Michael Jackson from London and Stephen Beaumont from Toronto.
Celebrator Beer News readers are predominantly male, 21 to 49 years old, culturally active, well educated professionals with a passion for craft brewed beer. The Celebrator is their main resource for information on the latest brewing news, commentary, profiles and events. With our readership estimated at over 165,000, we are a cost-effective advertising buy targeting beer lovers.
The Celebrator’s 55,000 print run is distributed worldwide. Our 50+page bimonthly color magazine can be found at breweries, brewpubs, select pubs, alehouses and restaurants, prime retail accounts, homebrew supply shops, beer festivals, and other beer-related outlets. We mail over 4,000 copies of each issue to subscribers and beer industry professionals around the world.
