RateBeer is a consumer-driven Web site and we strive to remain unbiased in our ratings and editorial content.
Since May 2000, RateBeer has remained an active forum for beer lovers to come together and share opinions of beers, and beer retailers in a free environment. Established and maintained by dedicated volunteers, RateBeer has become the premier resource for consumer-driven beer ratings, features on beer culture and industry events, weekly beer-related editorials, and an internationally recognized, annual RateBeer Best competition. A vibrant community of hundreds of thousands of members from more than 100 countries have rated hundreds of thousands of different beers around the world.
As of October 2016, ZX Ventures, AB InBev’s global growth and innovation division, has taken a minority interest in RateBeer. This investment is supporting the further improvement of our users experience, allowing us to make significant improvements to the site we were unable to accomplish without financial support. We are now more than ever dedicated to continuing in our mission to provide unbiased, consumer-driven information about beer and breweries, and to enhance the image and worldwide appreciation of beer.
