buy a .beer domain now

Minds + Machines welcomes Carlsberg as the newest .beer pioneer! Be on the lookout for and coming soon! Read More


.beer is a new Top Level Domain dedicated to the beer community. From breweries and bars to small and large beer brands, .beer offers the community an alternative to the currently overpopulated .com domain whilst bringing together the worldwide beer community.

Web names that end in .beer mean organizations don’t have to use the word “beer” in their domain name, it already acts as a descriptor. This results in shorter, more memorable domain names, allowing your audience to immediately identify you within the realm of alcoholic beverages, giving you a new, authentic Internet platform to reach your target audiences as well as new International fans/clients.

Our Pioneers

Pioneers are elite figures in the community that have adopted the .beer domain. If you would like to learn more about our pioneer program and are interested in becoming one, please contact
