  1. On who's wishlist is this beer

    It might be nice to be able to see who has a certain beer on their wishlist. So this would be a button from the beer profile, with a list of who has it on their list. Perhaps it would enable people to trade, or send a present (as long as they actually know the other citizen). Since all the data's there already, it should be easy to do, right...

    • Search by BREWERY option on the find a beer page.

      Sometimes I just want to look for breweries, how about adding a section to be able to search by BREWERY in the find a beer page where there is Active beers, Top Beers etc. This will allow user to recognize new breweries in the area and look at not just one beer but all attached to the brewery.

        Hi Jose,

        From the home page of the app, there’s a broader search that lets you find beers, breweries, or citizens, grouped by type. That may help you find some breweries more easily.

        The search field on the “Beers” page searches for beer or brewery name, and displays a list of beers. If you find a beer by the brewery you searched for, you can select the beer, then click/tap the brewery name from there.

        Finding breweries in your area, using your location, is another trick entirely, but one we definitely have in mind.

        Hopefully this helps in some way, but if not please feel free to email us at any time. We’re always looking for a way to improve the search usability, since it’s so important to the app.

      • Achievements!

        I noticed there are a lot of users with no activity for a few months. One great way to get users to be more active is to offer targets/achievements for certain stuff. I bet there's a lot of overlap between console gamers and beer drinkers, so it'll be a familiar concept to them. Perhaps you can offer 'Coasters' on our profile pages for hitting certain targets, e.g. x number of reviews, following x users, followed by x users etc. I'd love to brainstorm for some of them, but don't want to spoil the fun by posting publicly...

          While we don’t want to do what other sites do (not naming names), we have some ideas in mind for this. You have a clear knack for seeing our roadmap in your crystal ball, so if you’d like to email us to suggest/spitball other ideas, we welcome the input.

        • Add some options for Australian beers

          Love the app. I'm trying to contribute where possible but when adding beers I can't seem to find any options for Australian beer. Every time I go to add a pale ale I have to choose either North American or English. Some Australian options would make it a lot easier to add beers to their correct category.

          • Ability to retire/deactivate certain beers

            There are quite a few retired beers out there, limited releases, special one time deals etc. It might be nice to be able to indicate that a beer is retired, so people don't add something to their wishlist they might never be able to find. It would also be nice to not show these in search results (or add an option to hide them, similar to another beer related site)

              We’ve talked about this internally, but aren’t yet sure how to handle it. Retired beers have a way of becoming un-retired. People also often cellar beers that are retired, and go back to review them later. A lot of brews are one-offs, meaning they’re retired the moment they’re bottled on some level. There are certainly some brews that are just gone from the world, and we do need to find a way to deal with those, so we’re considering ways to best handle it (and definitely looking at how other sites handle the issue). We’ll let you know when we figure out our approach, but continue to welcome your suggestions in the meantime.

            • Add some tracking for correction suggestions

              I've been sending in corrections on beers and breweries as I run across issues. It would be nice if there was some kind of tracking so you know it's been fixed. I'm not asking for a whole tracking system, but perhaps the beer/brewery and correction can show up somewhere on our profile field, and once it's been corrected it gets a check mark?

                This one’s definitely on the docket. Our most likely plan is to send a notification email to the submitter of the correction with either a “thanks, we’ve fixed the issue” email, or one saying why we didn’t. We’ll get that rolled out soon, but in the meantime, thanks for the keen eye and submitting those corrections!

              • Provide a way to contact other reviewers/ followers.

                I recently discovered that one of my followers is from my hometown, approximately 1500 miles from my current location. It would be great if there was a way to contact other members.

                    • Use weighted average for Overall rating

                      I'm not sure how the current Overall rating is calculated, if it's a straight-up average, or if it's a little more advanced than that. I've noticed some beers have a lower overall average than you would expect, looking at the scores people gave it. There are a few who may have given it a very low rating, but those outliers shouldn't weigh as heavily as the bulk of the mid-range numbers. If it's possible to use a weighted average, it may reflect a more accurate overall score.

                        Indeed, you’re on track with our plans again :) The overall rating is an area we’re planning to bring some more sophisticated statistics to soon. We’re now reaching that critical mass where enough beers have a sufficient number of reviews to start applying methods like this, and we plan to do so.

                            This is indeed on our “maybe” list of features. Similarly, we’re considering an optional “vintage” field during a review. We’re just trying to figure out if such (optional) fields are a burden to those that don’t want to use them, or a boon to those that do. Thanks for asking for it, though, that shifts the balance somewhat.

                              We’d certainly love to use this feature too! The trick is acquiring and correlating enough UPC codes to make the feature worthwhile. Hopefully we can find a source with enough data to cover a good cross-section of the beers in the database, and have citizens like you help us fill in the gaps. We’ll certainly let you know if and when this feature gets included in the apps.

                                We’ll take this into consideration. We’ve found that the vast majority of brews list ABV on the brewer’s website or the beer itself. There are, of course, exceptions to that. To convert ABV to ABW, you simply multiply ABV by 0.79336. Perhaps we can add that in a tooltip/popup when you mouseover (or tap, on mobile) the ABV.

                                  Finding availability of a particular beer based on location is a tough nut to crack, but we’re trying to figure it out. Finding brewery locations in your area would be one thing, but figuring out which breweries actually distribute beers to your area is extraordinarily complicated. Some breweries only distribute locally, some throughout their home state, and others to some or all states outside their own, but we’re not yet sure how to gather or stay on top of this data. It’s certainly a feature we’d LOVE to add though, so we’ll keep trying to solve this one.

                                      I'd like the ability to share to Google+ since I am anti-Facebook.

                                        Unfortunately the Google Plus APIs are read-only at the moment, meaning apps can’t post anything to your G+ stream directly. Hopefully the API will be updated in the future so we can implement this. It would indeed be a welcome addition.

                                      • How about a "Share" feature in the app that lets you tell others about the app?

                                        I have friends who would dig this idea, but they're not exactly the type who would remember the name of an app after 10 minutes. Sending them an invitation from the app would be a much better way to get them to take a look.

                                          Would be nice for us gals to have a default female profile photo.

                                            Perhaps you’re right, that during the signup process, we can integrate either a step to add a photo, a group of default icons to choose from, or at least additional instructions on where to change it later. It looks like you found and changed yours successfully, which is good to see. We’ll put this on our list of enhancements for a future version.
