"It’s amazing how dependent we become on these tools of the trade! I do use the online version, but for cross-referencing, nothing beats the print copy. I can't imagine going more than an hour or so every day without referencing either the electronic or printed copy of the journal."

Jim Panzica, Wine World of Bethel

“I don’t go anywhere without the Beverage Journal. It’s part of my everyday life. It’s the best selling tool you can have. It’s right here. It’s an easy way for me to connect the dots.”

Darchell Wilson, Wholesaler Sales Representative

“You have morphed the Journal into one of the best industry publications.”

Jack Williamson, Owner, Winery Concepts

"I can compare pricing easily and I can make sure I order everything correctly and everything is the right size. It’s helpful that the website keeps a history of past orders. I like that I can easily find out how much I ordered last time."

Angie Zheng, Avallone Discount Wine and Spirits in Danbury
