PipesMagazine.com was launched in February 2009 right around the same time that The Wall St. Journal published a story about pipe smoking catching on with the college-age crowd. This was completely coincidental, but obviously pretty cool, right?
In the beginning, the blog was the biggest part of the site, and the forums were small. Now, we are the largest and most active pipe hobbyist forums in the world, and we still publish regular blog content each month.
In 2012, we started “The Pipes Magazine Radio Show”, which is a weekly podcast hosted by Brian Levine. We never missed a weekly show in over 7-years.
In 2019, we turned 10-years old, and re-launched with an updated design, and completely new forums platform.
