About • Hop Culture


Founded by two journalists frustrated with the current state of beer writing, Hop Culture is an online lifestyle magazine for a new generation of craft beer drinkers. Written and presented with the needs of the beer drinker in mind, the site provides millions of readers with serious beer journalism from around the world. Independently operated and headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Hop Culture publishes five days per week, every week. The company also maintains offices in Boston, Massachusetts, and New York, New York.

As the craft beer industry continues to mature, so must its coverage. Count on Hop Culture for beer writing, well crafted.
