BEERS: Issues Reporting - Please Post Here for modifications


Seems to be the case. In fact I don’t think there is a limit on the new add beer page because a beer I added a while back had an even longer name than that. An admin later edited it (no idea why because nothing changed) and had to remove a word or the slashes between collaborators so it would fit. So that seems to confirm admins are working with far more restrictions than users are.
In any case I think the limit needs to be raised. Long name beers are fairly commonplace these days. Evil Twin and Omnipollo for example are two breweries who find this fun. If it causes problems on the page when displaying it’s trivial to truncate it in CSS. No need to compromise on data integrity.

Also are any other admins besides Marko monitoring this thread? There’s a few UK beers, some of which have gone unfixed for weeks so I’d like to post them here, but I don’t want to be burdening Marko with all the edits as it’s not fair on him :confused:

And @joet any chance we can get a page showing corrections we’ve submitted? I accept that admins are working with a large backlog but when it’s taking weeks I honestly can’t remember if I’ve submitted a correction already and I don’t want to make things worse by submitting another.


Just write whatever correction you have here - all those that contain names with diacritics preferably. They will likely be spotted sooner and sorted out faster.


Hah, had a roundabout way to handle this. Pelicon / Yeastie Boys Brut IPA is used interchangeably with the “full name”. So I just made a new entry with that name and all the info and aliased the older version to it. :smiley:


Lol that is dumb. But glad you found a way to sort it out in the end :smiley:
Really hope joet will fix these issues so that you don’t have to find stupid workarounds like this!


On the Original Post it says “Please Post Here for any BREWER related entry issue which need correction.” But this thread is for beer corrections. @Viper666


Hook Norton have recycled a beer name. This beer should be retired. The two recent ratings should be moved to the new Crafty Fox Black IPA. Also the photo is of the new beer.



Not exactly sure where to post this so I guess here is the best option.
The other day I added this beer https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/track-verdant-the-path-of-least-resistance/670279/
Shortly after I saw a picture from a taproom it was on at with a slightly different name so I thought I had it wrong and submitted a correction for it. However, turns out the way I added it originally was indeed right and the taproom had it wrong, therefore my submitted correction is wrong too and should be ignored. Please delete my submitted correction if it’s not already so as not to confuse any admins who come across it! Thanks and sorry for inconvenience.


I believe those two are the same beer:


This is no longer cask only:


Don’t know if that warrants a separate entity, if so then 9 ratings should be moved over.


I have some corrections that haven’t been handled in the past few weeks which is unusual for the UK admins, other corrections I submitted after these were handled pretty quickly. So I’m writing here in case more info was needed.

  1. https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/northern-monk-206-kentuckyshire-breakfast-stout/663985/
    there was already an entry for this here: https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/northern-monk-against-the-grain-patrons-projects-206-nowt-like-a-proper-brew/646622/
    “Nowt Like A Proper Brew” is the actual name but it seems most places were referring to the beer as “Kentuckyshire Breakfast Stout” which is the “style” they coined for it. This is causing confusion so at this point it’s probably best to alias it to the correct entry. Firstly it would be useful to correct the name: “Northern Monk / Against the Grain Patrons Project 2.06 Kentuckyshire Breakfast Stout” before aliasing it to the other one so any related search terms including patrons or similar will find one of those.

  2. https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/north-brewing-co-action-against-hunger-small-stout/667890/
    Action Against Hunger is the charity this beer is helping, not really part of the name, which incidentally is missing the collaborators.
    Correct name: North Brewing Co / Left Handed Giant / Six Degrees North / Track Small Stout
    The misleading “keg” description (why is this constantly written on canned releases?) can be replaced with the proper one:

A mini imperial stout flavoured with chocolate and vanilla. Brewed with Left Handed Giant, Six Degrees North and Track to raise funds for Action Against Hunger - 25p per can and 10p per every pint sold.

  1. https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/burnt-mill-verdant-collab/663888/
    On this one, the name, style, abv are wrong, and not sure what happened with that description. It’s not literally called “Collab”, I guess it was written like that on the board at IMBC, it’s part of their “Fog” series of NEIPAs. Anyway since then someone’s added a correct entry for this beer here: https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/burnt-mill-verdant-tidal-fog-ipa/667914/ so these should be merged. The description, style and ABV on this one are correct. Clip image shows the ABV and name in case you can’t see from the tiny compressed as shit image on RB.

  2. Further to the above correction, all the “Fog” series beers should be reclassified as NEIPAs:

Thanks in advance!


Propose to delete the # from the name, since the cans don’t have the version #, and you can not know which you’re rating.



This one’s got accented letters so posting here: https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/magic-rock-de-mole-ba/618156/

It’s a collaboration and there’s a much better description for it. See here, quoting below https://www.magicrockbrewing.com/beer/ba-de-mole/

Name: Magic Rock / De Molen BA De Molé

A double mashed Bourbon Barrel Aged Mexican Mole inspired Imperial Stout brewed in collaboration with our friends from Brouwerij de Molen. Oats, malts, barley and toasted pumpkin seeds were used in the mash to give a complex base of flavours. We then used a blend of Chipotle, Ancho, Mulato and Pasilla chilies to give a nice fruity acidity along with a delicate touch of heat.
True to the Molé recipe, we also added cacao nibs, coriander seed, cinnamon sticks and a little cumin, giving depth and different layers of flavour, that develop as the beer warms. Smoky, chocolatey and roasty on the nose, with a great complexity of tastes.
The bourbon barrel ageing adds additional vanilla depth to this wonderful Imperial stout.


Al the variations of this beer could use a clean-up to make the name consistant and the hop variations in one format: (https://www.ratebeer.com/search?q=Captain+Lawrence+Powder+Dreams)

The correct name is Alewife Metanoia not Metanola


Please put the # before the number as in the others and replace & with /:

While at it, can you please also change #7 (remove the space, and replace ‘and’ with /), so that my obsessive my mind can rest.



The correct name is Marble of Doom III


That was almost certainly my mistake. Apologies!


I have a question.
De Troch Lambickx 2013-2015 French Oak is in the database. I have a Lambickx 2013-2015 Oak and Chestnut bottle. Does it deserve its own entry?


I went ahead and added it. It won’t hurt my feelings if it’s already here and kinda hidden and mine gets merged.


Fixed and polished. :slight_smile:
