BREWER PAGE Feedback / bugs Update

Suite du sujet New Brewer Page: A first look

Now on the main site to try:

Known Issues:

Sorting should be by NAME A-Z by default.

If you change the sorting options, we lose access to all other beers past the first 15. CORRECTED

Closed associated places are listed but they MUST BE displayed as CLOSED. I would suggest switching the Place Picture with a universal CLOSED picture to do that.

In the address URL, the city and region names are stuck together, missing space. CORRECTED

In the Top Raters, some flags don’t display under Windows 10.

No way to make all the beer listing appear in one single page (only 5-15-25 at a time). ADMINS NEED THIS BY DEFAULT.

Trying to sort by Status crash the page. What is the purpose of this sorting by status (Unverified, Alias, Retired, Seasonal)? CORRECTED

Missing some FILTER OPTIONS by Status: Hide Not Alias, Hide Not Retired.

Admins can’t see if a beer is verified or not CORRECTED

The Status (RETIRED ie) height in the beer listing is too high, it makes the beer entry higher than the others. CORRECTED

We should have a way to FILTER BEERS BY STYLES (remove the useless sort by Score-Style and replace it with Style filters, ranking Styles Scores between different styles is pointless)

Beer Search only works for the listed visible beers, not the whole beer list. CORRECTED

Missing admin tools for beers ( quick links to verify/edit/add pics for each beers) CORRECTED

Missing Edit Brewer shortcut CORRECTED

Clicking on Sort by name makes it Z-A first instead of A-Z (you have to click twice on Sort of)

No mention anywhere when a brewer is Out of Business. CORRECTED

“Contracted to” and “Brewed By” not listed / not supported. CORRECTED

Aliased beers aren’t displayed in the beer listings. CORRECTED

The brewer description doesn’t support html linebreak < br > like it used too.


Email link redirect to the RB brewer page right now. CORRECTED

Website link redirect to the RB brewer page right now CORRECTED

In More Filters, there should be a CLEAR ALL FILTERS option.CORRECTED

Why link the number of review to the beer name (small number stuck right after the name) instead of using a separate column especially for it. It would look cleaner. CORRECTED

The number of reviews for Associated Places doesn’t display correctly on desktop (displayed on 2 lines when the Place name takes more than 1 line)

The Beer infos (name, style, abv) gets realigned badly to the left when the beer name gets longer (2 full lines or more) (unaligned vs other Beer entries… note: not happening all the time)

Private reviews are displayed in recent reviews (it may be intented)

Add a Filter option to display only “Brewed For” and another for “Contracted to” beers only. Or put them in different tabs.

I don’t know how you you plan to handle mobile web layout but right now it’s just not working at all.

For mobile web, I’d suggest to use the exact same format the beer entries than the BEER SEARCH RESULTS and hide the extra columns (percentile scores, 5-star scores, user scores, Added) CORRECTED

This way, we would have all the necessary infos about each beer and it would still work with the filters options.

Also, the brewer logo should go left like the Place page to keep it clean for mobile view.

@aww @services

The way ALIASED BEERS in the beer listing right now, there would be no way anymore to edit an Aliased beer (since edit option is not possible from Beer search and it’s not possible to edit from the brewer listing.

ALIASED BEERS should keep all admin tools options.

And Like I said before, the ALIASED BEERS should display:
Their Original Beer Added Date (right now, this is working so don’t change it)
The Original Beer Picture (some alias beers have multiple brandings AT THE SAME TIME)
The redirected Beer complete stats (Overall Score, 5-star Style Score, My score, status)
Just with a mention special mention ** Also known as**

You must reintroduce the aliased beer page too, not just an automatic redirect link to the latest alias. There’s some important infos there (Image, beer original description, date created)


There’s an Error in the Admin Tools for beers: The Edit Beer icon is in fact an Edit Tag Icon right now. CORRECTED

Also the Search for a Beer option doesn’t work to find STYLES, ABV and any other column like the one we have right now. It’s an important feature especially to find some beers based on styles.


Some layout errors on website desktop depending of the screen width.


Nice improvements. We will just need the sorting and filter options for mobile view!
(and please make it A-Z by default)


I see you dropped the Status column and Sorting view. This is probably better this way. (Status FILTERS would be better)

Number of Ratings are now in a separate column but User ratings are now next to the beer name…you should add MY SCORE in the Sorting options. (and you definitely need Rated beers / User scores to be more evident at first sight…entire blue highlighted background would be the best)

TOP RATERS order seem to be messed up now.

Sorting by Name A-Z is not working correctly now.

Also, I would suggest to put display the Styles in a separate column just like the MY RATING page with full Filter options by style available.


Still pending bugs and needed things as of 2020-01-06.

Center the columns (after the first) instead of Align Left like they are displayed right now.

You need to TOTALLY REMOVE MY RATING under the beer name on list view (the rating displayed there isn’t even the real score, it’s a 1 digit mean of our score…) since there’s already a dedicated column for it and it makes list view bigger than thumbnail view… (or use the same yellow-squared format than the thumbnail view)

You need to correct the MY RATING under the beer name on thumbnail view and in the list view column: it should be a X.X format, not X.XX)

Number of beers brewed from this brewery is wrong (because it includes Contracted beers and Aliased beers)

Number of beers rated from this brewery is wrong (because it includes Contracted Beers)

Sorting by Name should be by default in this order: A-Z then 0-9, then special characters.

The SORT BY button should be always named SORT BY: (NAME, SCORE, …). Right now, it is named NAME by default, so people don’t find where to look for the other options at first sight.

The Brewer Type should be listed AFTER the Brewer Name, the Brewer name should be the first thing on top.

Missing some FILTER OPTIONS by Status: Hide Not Alias, Hide Not Retired.

The brewer description doesn’t support html linebreak < br > like it used too…this makes the description text all crammed in one block…

Add a Filter option to display or Hide “Brewed For” and another for “Contracted to” beers. Or even better, put them in different tabs.

We should have a way to FILTER BEERS BY STYLES with an appropriate Style Column in desktop view.

The number of reviews for Associated Places doesn’t display correctly on DESKTOP VIEW when the Place name is too long (displayed on 2 lines when the Place name takes more than 1 line). The number of reviews should be listed after the score, not after the name, just like in the App.

The number of reviews for Beers doesn’t display correctly on MOBILE VIEW when the Beer name is too long (displayed on 2 lines when the Beer name takes more than 1 line). The number of reviews should be listed after the score, not after the name, just like in the App.

In the description and Top raters, some flags don’t display under Windows 10.

The ADD BEER, ADD PIC, EDIT BEER buttons load the new page in the same tab…which forces the user to scroll back and reload the entire Brewer page (and filters). They should all pop up in a new tab.

Remove opening hours from the Brewer page… if there’s any, it should be listed in the Associated Place only. This could result having different/erroneous Opening hours between those 2 pages, especially if an admin forget to update both pages.

Add INSTAGRAM link like in the App

In Mobile View, many things are missing:
VERIFY status button
Admin Tools

Lack of consistency in date format (Date column vs Rated on)

Recent Reviews not loading anymore (Totally removed?)

Hide the full address of the Brewer, only display the city, Country, just like the App. This will avoid confusion if the place isn’t opened to the public. The full address should only be accessible from the Associated Place pages linked to the brewer. (or display the full address in SHOW MORE only)

The COPY TO CLIPBOARD option is not working.

The progressive colour used to highlight rated beers is too pale, making it difficult to work with, especially on wider screens.

Use different highlighting colours for Rated Beers between Quick (blue?) and Full reviews (yellow)

Admin Comments (in brackets) shouldn’t be visible in the brewer description.


Bad Input Lag when typing in the SEARCH FOR A BEER field, especially on mobile (some letters are jumped when typing…)

Missing Clone Brewery to Places (it should be there as an option in the OPTIONS menu or as a link in the ASSOCIATED PLACES when needed).

The number of beers rated (top left) is broken and doesn’t match the reality and changes every time you add a filter.

MY RATING must have a separate column

The EDIT BREWER should load in the same page, not in a new tab…

Name Column Header is displayed wrong: A-Z should be displayed as “Name ↓”.

Column headers sorting are all in reverse, when you click on them, they should list HIGHEST to LOWEST by default ( displayed as XXXX ↓ ). Clicking on them a second time should do the reverse effect.

MY SCORE should be in the Sorting options. (From MY HIGHEST RATED to MY LOWEST RATED)

Sorting by Name A-Z should be the listing by default.

There’s no link to add a Brewer picture.

We completely lost ANY WAY to edit an Aliased beer now because we can’t reach the the beer page URL (neither form the Search or from the brewer page beer edit link)

Closed associated places are listed but they MUST BE displayed as CLOSED.

No way to make COMPLETE BEER LISTING appear in one single page (max 50 at a time on desktop view…no choice on mobile view). ADMINS NEED THIS BY DEFAULT.

Brewer’s that you previously Followed/Liked before the new brewer page release aren’t displayed as Liked (The Heart Icon isn’t displayed blue even if you already Like the brewer)

The Website Button url links are broken on some pages
for example: https://www.ratebeer.com/brewers/mabrasserie-cooperative-brassicole/25111/www.mabrasserie.com
(this seems to be the case for all URL entered without http:// before the www. in the brewer edit page)

The top shortcut link for BREWERY / REGION doesn’t have a good URL (missing a " / " at the end)
for example: click on VERMONT sends us to this bad URL https://www.ratebeer.com/breweries/vermont/45/213
it should be this URL https://www.ratebeer.com/breweries/vermont/45/213/

The Browser tab name just displays RATEBEER instead of the Brewer’s name…so if you have multiple tabs opened on your browser, there’s no way to know which page is what…

RATED BEERS are not highlighted enough (user score are in fact barely visible at first sight, same for the small yellow line on the left), full colored Background is needed (different colors between Quick and Full reviews would even be better)
CORRECTED (but colours are not bright enough)

Top Raters are sometimes displayed in the wrong/random order.

The links on top of the brewery page showing country and county disappear if the page isn’t wide enough, they should always be available to see.

In Mobile View, many things are missing:
Country/County links CORRECTED

The top shortcut link to COUNTRY / REGION doesn’t have a good URL for other things than breweries (Cidery, Meadery, Sake Brewery), they are all sent to Brewery regional page.

In the beer listing, some beers don’t appear depending of which sorting you use, some of them appear twice.

@aww @services

So I guess this is live now since I can see it and I’m not an admin?

Some feedback:

  • Send a correction link is useless. You might as well make it go to the forums unless you’re going to do it properly like we can submit beer corrections.
  • “You have rated X beers from this brewery” - I’ve checked quite a few breweries and X is a random number for each one, always showing far less than I’ve actually had. Interestingly, the correct number is shown next to my name for breweries where I am a top rater, but it’s still wrong at the top.
  • It would be useful if you added Instagram username as a field next to Twitter username. Pretty much every brewery I follow uses Instagram as their main social media platform, of course many of them export their posts to other platforms but I like to get info straight from the source if possible.
  • I think viper mentioned it in his posts already but the blue heart denoting if you like/follow a brewery only sometimes appears to be blue, most of the time it’s white.
  • filtering by beer name is extremely slow, takes about 10 seconds to return the results
  • default pagination is only 15 beers per page. This is really low I think 50 should be default. It was 200 before so the servers can obviously handle the drop to 50.

I think Viper’s posts address everything else. Fair amount of stuff needs improving.


I’ve stopped giving feedback really but I can see these brewery pages now and will say they completely break the functionality of the page for me.

What I used to be able to do was see my score next to the average score and sort the column (either by my score or site score). This meant for a brewery I’d had 10-30 beers from I could at a glance see whether I rated their beers higher or lower than the site average and because their was a column for style I could see whether that applied for most styles or just for stouts.

That is the point of a table: tucking my score and the style under the beer name renders the information inaccessible. It’s tough to even see if you’ve had a beer.


I miss two old features that seem to be gone from the new brewery page.

  1. See how many total ratings I have from the brewery. Used to be beneath the Top Raters.

  2. Sort by my ratings. I can see my rating beneath the name, but no way to sort by it. It is nice to see the top/bottom rated beers from each brewery without having to export it to do so.


It is now right under the Brewer’s total number of beer brewed, top left of the beer list. But that number seems to be bugged most of the time right now.

One of the most important old feature missing right now, along with the Style sorting too.

Yea saw it now. Not as easy to see as it was before, but it is there. Haven’t checked if it is right or not.

It’s not. For e.g Uiltje Brewing I have rated 214 beers, but it says 28 beneath the total number of beers.

my score among the filter choices is a must, i need to list the beers based on that.
also the beers rated should stand out, now it’s just a tiny yellow strip.

I think it looks cool. Love the descriptions in there, and ability to exclude retired, beers I’ve had etc.

there doesn’t seem to be a way to add a new beer via the brewery page anymore? I find the info is now far too spread out to be usable, what a terrible update - the page seems completely useless to me


It takes years to load the complete beer list on mobile browser. It should just load the damn page that I have it completely. But it’s"circle" forever.
The search does not work mobile for me (Android, Firefox), it always adds the complete string plus the letter I type. E.g. I’m looking for a beer with “moc” in the name, typing moc gives “mmomoc”. I have to reload the page and start again to load the beer list. Awful. Just awful.


the links that used to be present at top of a brewery page showing country and county are no longer there, these allowed you to quickly link to the county ratings… used use these alot to check country stats - this is a big loss, can it please be put back

If your page is wide enough, you should see them…if it’s narrower or in Mobile View, you won’t. Design flaws…
