Although based in Rockford, Illinois, this publication primarily covered central Wisconsin bars and events. A glossy bar-rag sized magazine, EDGE was mostly bar ads, although it made attempts to include some limited news and feature articles. The magazine had a rocky go of it, skipping a few issues here and there in its first three years. Barely into its fourth year, the magazine disappeared from bars and venues, the last issue being dated June 2006.
