WAY more activity. For breweries that don’t update their tap lists online, I can get a sense if a certain beer is on just by looking on untappd and seeing the recent ratings. Shit, untappd is now powering some breweries’ live tap lists now.

I stopped rating when I started working professionally, speaking of...I guess I should update my profile on here since I am not at Church Brew anymore, but Rusty Gold has not even been entered on RateBeer, which is sort of a great self-contained example on why I think many people have moved on to Untappd. The info is just much more up to date, the user base is larger and more active. Sure, the ratings are 99% check-ins which are pretty much useless from a information standpoint, but at least the beer you are drinking is probably in their database.

.....five dudes tapping in a rating with 5 words each all around me while I sit there with a small pad & pen, sipping, writing, then gulping; they must think I’m cro-mag-man.

I’m waiting for UT to send me my password, never came.

So, UT has no place for text about the beer?

Talkbeer is where the youths are these days. Or Facebook groups.

I just added it, thanks for the heads up. Going to try to hit it today.

Just not sure why you didn't add it yourself, I would have already been there.

If you REALLY want to talk about and review beer, Dennis, join BeerAdvocate. Talkbeer is full of loud-mouthed douchebags who really don't want to talk about beer but like posting beer porn and talking about other stuff and Facebook is mostly just beer-porn.

Full disclosure, I've been banned from Talkbeer and the only FB groups that I belong to are technical ones.

Your mileage with these groups obviously may vary, but those are basically your options. Good luck, brother!
