The Beer Connoisseur® has forgone its print publication in favor of its new Premium Web Magazine. This new format delivers the same expertly written features, news, reviews and stories that were offered in the print magazine. With an increased frequency to 6 times per year (bi-monthly), each issue is easily accessible and easy to read on any device. Navigate to BeerConnoisseur.com, and on the home page menu click “Magazine”. Choose an available issue and begin reading. It's simple!
WEB PAGE FORMAT VS. FLIP-STYLE DIGITAL MAGAZINE
In today's digital world, we have found that busy beer lovers want quick access to in-depth content that can be easily absorbed on a phone, tablet or computer. The Web Page Format accomplishes this goal, as both body text and supporting photos quickly load and easily display on all devices.
Flip-Style Digital Magazines are offered through platforms that can be time consuming to load on phones, tablets and computers, as well as difficult to navigate. They are an attempt to transfer heavily designed layouts that work well as ink on paper into a digital form. Our experience is that print layouts are too cumbersome for most readers to absorb on phones, tablets and computers, and we have thus forgone this format.
Exploring each magazine issue is simple! The home page of each edition contains a Table of Contents that links to every story in the Premium Web Magazine. At the bottom of each story you will also find a condensed Table of Contents for quick navigation. That's it!
Most phones and tablets now contain a "Read Mode" located on the text line of the device's web browser. When reading a story, press this option on your browser and the article text will auto-zoom for ease of reading. Press the "Read Mode" option again to return to normal view. Both views will present highly viewable text and photography.
