Brewer Resources

Below are a set of RateBeer resources for brewers around the world. Bottle neckers and shelf talkers (aka shelf tags) provide a 100-point scale rating of the top beers at RateBeer. Preliminary reports are that our promotions reduce shelf time and increase beer sales volume dramatically. Any interested brewer is welcome to print RateBeer shelftags, licensing waived entirely, through December 2004. Educated beer consumers help everyone in the craft beer industry and we're happy to do our part!

We've seen quite a number of excellent, creative applications of RateBeer Best awards -- below are several examples. Also, awards of first, second and third place are gold, silver and bronze awards respectively. BONUS: The use of our logo and mention of RateBeer Best is completely free through 2004.

"#1 Brewer In The Midwest!"
"Best Beer In Mexico"
"Florida's Top Brewer"
"Best Light Lager In America"
"Silver Medal, Canadian Wheat Beers"

Attribution: To be a valid statement, your RateBeer Best statement must include a date, as either the month and year or the RateBeer Best season and year, and a reference to RateBeer as either RateBeer, RateBeer.com or RateBeer Best. Valid examples are:

Beer Tasting Clinics

RateBeer offers private tasting clinics for all brewers and marketers that would benefit from a compiled report of constructive feedback from a sample of experienced beer tasters. Tastings can be either blind or not, and paired with food or served alone. The tasting report will include tasting components broken down into aroma, flavor and mouthfeel, a section on errors and probable causes, and the individual comments. Please contact Joe Tucker, Executive Director, at (+001) 302.476.2337 to arrange a tasting clinic anywhere in the world.
