Mixology Magazine – One of our Media Partners:


The German bar culture magazine was founded in 2002 by Helmut Adam and Jens Hasenbein. Their intention was to write a magazine about the bar scenery and drinks industry because there was a lack of information. Apart from the magazine itself they organise the competition “MADE in GSA” (Germany, Switzerland and Austria) to support national and regional products and also the Mixology Bar Awards to honor the bar industry in various categories. Furthermore “Mixology” is official media partner of the Bar Convent Berlin, one of the world leading trade show about the bar scenery and drinks industry. An annual event for everyone who is related to this industry and attracts thousands of visitors across the globe. Moreover Mixology publishes the Mixology Bar Guide together with “Tre Torri” Publishing every year to present collective and extraordinary bars and the newest drinks.  Today it is available as a print and digital edition every two month and it is subscribed by 9,000 readers in Germany, Switzerland and Austria, e.g. bartenders, bar owners, beverage industry and even drink lovers.
