This is not what I'm talking about. What's more interesting to me is the idea of having a late Fall or Winter, seasonally appropriate beer at warmer than ambient temperatures. Quelque Chose comes to mind, as do Gluhbiers as holiday spiced beers intended to be served warm, but what else is there like this in the wide world of beer? https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/unibroue-quelque-chose/1924/ Has anyone had stout, spiced or not, warmed in a mug while out in the snow? I haven't but it sounds pretty attractive.<br><br>(24 replies) <a href=https://www.ratebeer.com/forums/drinking-warm-no-really-warm-beers_300120.htm>Read more of this discussion</a> at RateBeer https://www.ratebeer.com/forums/drinking-warm-no-really-warm-beers_300120.htm https://www.ratebeer.com/forums/drinking-warm-no-really-warm-beers_300120.htm Tue, 21 Nov 2017 00:40:29 EST What ya drinkin' part XVII Posted by Quick3Beers<br><br>Ladyface Dérailleur<br><br>(139 replies) <a href=https://www.ratebeer.com/forums/what-ya-drinkin-part-xvii_299295.htm>Read more of this discussion</a> at RateBeer https://www.ratebeer.com/forums/what-ya-drinkin-part-xvii_299295.htm https://www.ratebeer.com/forums/what-ya-drinkin-part-xvii_299295.htm Tue, 21 Nov 2017 00:40:29 EST Zero ABV Session Ales® Posted by Aurelius<br><br>So, I'm seeing alcohol free hopwater out there - what's the story?<br><br>(8 replies) <a href=https://www.ratebeer.com/forums/zero-abv-session-ales_300100.htm>Read more of this discussion</a> at RateBeer https://www.ratebeer.com/forums/zero-abv-session-ales_300100.htm https://www.ratebeer.com/forums/zero-abv-session-ales_300100.htm Tue, 21 Nov 2017 00:40:29 EST English Pale ale Posted by redders1974<br><br>Is there an agenda to get rid of this style?

Posted by JustinCredible<br><br>I feel like just about every time I go to a mediocre brew pub that all of their beers have an off chemical aftertaste. I don't think I've ever noticed that taste in a bottled/canned beer off the shelf, it only seems to be in brew pubs, and generally not the more highly regarded ones. Does anyone know what that is, or am I just crazy? I don't get how these places stay in business, it's almost like it's just in my head, or nobody else notices it.<br><br>(14 replies) <a href=https://www.ratebeer.com/forums/off-taste-at-a-lot-of-bew-pubs_300071.htm>Read more of this discussion</a> at RateBeer https://www.ratebeer.com/forums/off-taste-at-a-lot-of-bew-pubs_300071.htm https://www.ratebeer.com/forums/off-taste-at-a-lot-of-bew-pubs_300071.htm Tue, 21 Nov 2017 00:40:29 EST Barrel Aging Posted by weihenweizen<br><br>For me it does not always improve a beer.

Posted by Maakun<br><br>There seems to be some confusion sometimes in the cider part of our database. For example Écusson/CCLF. There's this cidery on Ratebeer, but neither the website nor email exist, the address seems to be a small office somewhere in Paris: https://www.ratebeer.com/brewers/cidreries-du-calvados-la-fermiere-cclf/4598/ Then there's these two which just seem to be two plants owned by CCLF: https://www.ratebeer.com/brewers/cclf-messac/11852/ https://www.ratebeer.com/brewers/cclf-livarot/11418/ They all have different entries, but a lot seem to be the same. For example, I don't think there's actually ciders called Ecusson, they're all called Écusson though it's not always mentioned on the front of the label. It's a bit hard as lots of the entries don't have pictures, but from what I can find the labels look the same. There's a few others where there seem to be the same ciders put under different producers/names. I'm not sure if there's a cider admin? I've been adding a bunch to the database myself but it's sometimes quite hard and I understand the dificulty in trying to validate the info. If there's anything we can do to help I'd also like to know&#033;<br><br>(34 replies) <a href=https://www.ratebeer.com/forums/how-to-improve-the-cider-part-of-the-database_299942.htm>Read more of this discussion</a> at RateBeer https://www.ratebeer.com/forums/how-to-improve-the-cider-part-of-the-database_299942.htm https://www.ratebeer.com/forums/how-to-improve-the-cider-part-of-the-database_299942.htm Tue, 21 Nov 2017 00:40:29 EST What spices are you tasting in Sierra Nevada Celebration this year?

Here's what's changed: * Added user stats to user profile page &#40;personal ratings, ratings, styles, countries, breweries and spots&#41; * Improved search experience by making search navigation more intuitive. * Added the ability to spot a beer at RateBeer locations * Note that this is a basic precursor to finding nearby RateBeer locations and availability at those places. Location services haven't been added yet so you have to search for locations, but they're coming soon. We've also addressed bugs with the following: * Fixed an issue on Android where the button to submit a review would be hidden underneath the keyboard. * Fixed some issues with the profile image upload. Up next: Barcode scanning and location services. Android users on Lollipop 5.1 and below might need to grant permission called &quot;Record Audio&quot; upon install. This has been added to make the upcoming barcode scanning to work since it uses the camera view &#40;Google is a master of unfortunate phrasing&#41;.

Beer Yorkshire is a visual celebration of Yorkshire's &#40;UK&#41; diverse brewing culture featuring Bars, Bottleshops and Breweries from around the County. I've been shooting story telling images as well as portraits to showcase the variety of people involved in the local scene. The kickstarter to turn the project into a coffee table book is live now and features some special packages from Magic Rock Brewing, Northern Monk Brew Co, and the chance to be a brewer for the day with Wishbone Brewery. Packages start at just £10. Pre-order the book today. kickstarter.beeryorkshire.com Any questions feel free to give me a shout.

Posted by joet<br><br>I'm wondering if people require a tick AND rate for the same beer? Are there big tickers here who really want the ability to have ticks AND rates for the same beer? If so can you tell me a bit about how you use ticks in this case? I know multiple ticks for the same beer is something that some people want but it's not very RateBeer to amass a lot of ticks for the same beer. We might create some feature in the future that allows this but I'm looking to do some clean up now.
