Alcoholmanac: Southeast Wisconsin's Nightlife & Drink Culture Almanac
Alcoholmanac Magazine is a Milwaukee-based, hyperlocal beer, wine, spirit, bar and restaurant publication. We like to call it a "Nightlife and Drink Culture Almanac." The name is a combination of the words "alcohol" and "almanac." We print 25,000 copies, which are read by a conservatively estimated 70,000+ readers each issue, and it's distributed to over 500 bars, liquor stores and restaurants in Southeast Wisconsin. It's free to pick up and take home, so when you see it, don't hesitate to snatch it up. They can go FAST!
Below is a list of all the parts of town to which we distribute.

If you can't find a distribution spot near you, contact us and we'll see what we can do to remedy that. Alternately, you can subscribe to the magazine! Sure, it's normally free, but for the cost of our shipping and handling, you can have Alcoholmanac Magazine delivered straight to your mailbox!
Alcoholmanac Magazine Milwaukee-Area Distribution Maps:
Alcoholmanac Magazine is currently only available in Milwaukee, Madison, Racine and Kenosha, but plans are in the works to create unique magazines for several other cities and regions throughout the United States. Each new city or region will have its very own magazine, specifically catered to their unique drink culture.
Brian is the co-founder and Publisher of Alcoholmanac Magazine. While he loves both beer and wine, his real passion is for distilled spirits and cocktails. He has dedicated much of his time to the study of cocktails and the history of spirits. He loves judging cocktail competitions and hopes to organize his own in the near future. Before starting Alcoholmanac Magazine, he was a performing classical guitarist and, for a short time, a bartender. When not working on the magazine, he enjoys teaching guitar (even playing it when he gets a chance), eating and/or drinking socially with friends, reading and writing.
Angie is the co-founder and Editor-in-Chief of Alcoholmanac Magazine. Her main responsibilities started with copy-editing and proofreading the entire magazine, including Brian's numerous misspellings, but she now develops, assigns and helps design all the editorial. She loves red wine (especially shiraz) and cocktails. Before starting the magazine, she was an editorial intern at Metroparent Magazine in Milwaukee. During her downtime, Angie can often be found curled up with a book, but she also has a passion for mindfulness, eating healthfully and supporting local and socially responsible businesses.
