Totally agree !!


Totally disagree.!


Wrong. They’re a bit over the top. The more I compare the more I see it.

I disagree with the near every damn beer and I'm sticking to it.

Plus the fine tuned rating for each aspect of a beer on RB is going to produce different results than an overall score with a 0.25-5.0 range that Untappd employs.

Think of all the extra time I'll have if RB is gone :)

I am not going to read this whole thread again but one issue I am seeing is a lack of new information and entering new beers. I am just about to enter Summit Belgian Pale Ale. This is from the 2nd largest brewery in MN where we have a lot of users, and this beer has been on the market for weeks. I consider this a minor anecdote worthy of note. I hope, Joe, you consider whether something is happening that is making users less interested in contributing, which is very clearly happening in the forums. With this post, I am talking about hard beer data.

It's not the shit but it does have some worthiness and I see a lot of BAs and RBs using it as well. ;)

I entered a beer about a month ago that already had 350 unique ticks on Untappd. Founders Porter, another example, has 2000 ratings on RB, and over 150,000 unique ticks on UT. I suspect it's sheer number of users, rather than engagement of the users, but I have no data to back that up. Either way, it's hard to say that our database would be able to be as current and complete as UT with those kind of numbers.
