The decision to drop the announcement on a Friday afternoon/evening was certainly strategic. My guess is we’ll see more of these tomorrow and early this upcoming week.

Neither of those links worked.


Interesting. They both work for me.

Bye Bye, RateBeer.
It is with sad hearts we hear that our favourite beer rating site has now joined The Dark Side.
Since October 2016, RateBeer has been jointly owned by the Anheuser-Busch Inbev subsidiary ZX Ventures. The partnership was made public yesterday.
“It’s really insight,” says Samantha Roth, ZX spokesperson. “It’s insights into consumer trends. It’s a better understanding of the beer consumer, and the beer markets globally. That’s really going to help us kind of keep our finger on the pulse.”
In our view, this is essentially the same practice as wartime military intelligence. And we are the enemy being targeted by Big Beer.
In order to try and deny the enemy this information, we will no longer help them update any information about our products.
Join the Resistance, Drink Craft Beer!


Moonlight Meadery’s and Hidden Moon Brewing

This isn’t good for the industry, please avoid further reviews of Moonlight Meadery and Hidden Moon Brewing in this site.

Have been reacting at the Invitational or have been at the Invitational and haven’t had time to see the news yet? (I’m not being pedantic; I’m really curious.)

We’ll see when the world class attendees at ratebeer best decide to stay home in January.

We shall see. No doubt many will pull out. Glad to see how gleeful you people are about it.
