There is no Acrobat beta or experimental version for macOS Big Sur.

 

You should've consulted the release notes for Big Sur which is still on beta stages,  and it is not officially released as a stable OS version yet:   macOS Big Sur 11 Universal Apps Beta 5 Release Notes 

 

Your inquiry was answered earlier this  month to another macOS Big Sur user.

 

Here's an more official statement from Adobe :

Did Apple push the Beta version of Big Sur onto regular users? How come there are so many people who are using it now?

According to macRumor 6 days ago:

 

"macOS Big Sur is available to developers at the current time, and Apple has seeded five developer betas and two public betas so far. macOS Big Sur will be a free update for all compatible Mac models when it's released this fall."

In Eastern Time, Fall begins on September 22 and ends on December 21st.  

 

So I guess it will be officially released anytime between those dates.

There just seem to be a lot of "regular" (ie. non-beta testers) users with this version this time around. I hope they made it clear that a beta OS version is NOT suited for production machines, although knowing the Apple crowd people probably think that whatever comes out of Cupertino is flawless and can never have any bugs... Oh well.

I too would like a version of Adobe Acrobat that doesn't crash all the time with Mac OS Big Sur. In the meantime, i've gotten around the issue by virtually using another machine. Specifically, I have created a OS X image in Parallels using the Emergency Particion, and running Adobe Acrobat there,.

Don't hold your breath. Adobe is very unlikely to release versions that are compatible with this beta version of the OS. Once the final version is released, if there are still issues, an update will soon follow. If you want stability don't install beta versions!

Allow me to say that this assumption to provide no beta release for Acrobat between june - date of earlier release of Big Sur beta - and the autumn is unbelievable to say the least.
Acrobat is a widely used application and users are willing to pay a not negligible cost in exchange of a service.

We are now approaching Bug Sur official release date and still no clue about Acrobat release.

In the meanwhile I have been paying the monthly fee in exchange of a completely unusable Acrobat version.
I hope Adobe will deeply understand how this is affecting its customer base and may reconsider its current opinionated attitude.

You have no one to blame but yourself for this situation. If you want to have a working machine don't install beta versions, certainly not of the OS!

I agree. They should make a version available for Big Sur since it will be out soon.

Why would they do that? It would just be encouraging bad choices.
