County Points Leader Board at the end of 2018

I thought I would post an update to this stat as its the end / beginning of the year.

Just as a reminder points are allocated as follows: Top rater of beers from a county gets 50 points, 2nd 49 points and so on for each person in the top 50. This is repeated for each county, and then totaled. Points are allocated in the order people appear on the top 50 list even if the have rated the same amount of beers as someone else.

This is a really cool stats thread so I’m glad you posted an update.

Wow, I actually broke into the top 100 by quite a margin!

59 points to 89 is quite an unexpected jump for me. Off the top of my head can’t think of anywhere I would have dramatically improved. I ranked in Gloucestershire, Greater Manchester, West Yorkshire and Tyne & Wear according to the previous thread, did I rank in more counties this time round?

If someone has nothing better to do they should exclude all the users who’ve ceased rating. I’ll get on with it*.

*Lie

The same counties have ranked again, just moving up the top 50. There are some counties where only a few rates move you up a fair few places.

Love this list (it being one of the very few I’m actually in!). Many thanks for posting the updated version.

so it’s a top 50 out of 190 total?

Can’t believe I have gone backwards; I thought everyone had stopped rating and I was the only one left (more or less).

2 of our Danish contingent did a trip to the UK over the autumn including Nottingham beer fest.

They’ve risen quite a bit and you are one of the casualties from this I imagine!

Correct, just shows what a concerted effort can achieve in such a short time. I am sure that I will claw back up the table during 2019 (already have nine English beers to write about from last night).

<*))))))><

It the 190 raters that appear in any English regions top 50 raters of beer from that region.

Just a different way of showing the top raters of English beer.

A special shout out to Rune and Finn who are frequent travellers to these shores from Norway. They love to have a few English beers whilst they are here.

What I find bizarre on the UKCBF on Facebook is the amount of people who travel to random parts of the country and then want recommendations of where they can buy the same craft beers they have at home. Have some local beers you fashion wankers.

When I travel to random parts of the country, ideally I’d like recommendations of where I can get new Rutland, IoW and Worcestershire rates.

Failing that, I’ll always aim for new breweries local to where I’m visiting.

@Mr_Pink_152 Can you do this every six months without too much work? Say 1st July and then again on 31st Dec, I think it’s a great stat you’ve created.

<*))))))><

That’s pretty much my plan. Six months gives enough time for some changes.

Hurry up! RB isn’t going to be here much longer.

I did do a couple of trips over last year, including festivals, so theoretically could pull something out of my backlog to bump the stats in key counties.

Some zombies refuse to die…

Saxo and Rasmus40 along with Grumbo have just completed a mega English road trip, so you can expect to see all their names to rise come July.

I am slowly making progress, but by chance rather than by design, just rating whatever comes my way. Actually I am surprised how many new beers I’ve already had this year; 158, with around half being English. Small backlog from the Brugge Beer Festival and a bottle share tonight will help pile on some more too even if my county scores don’t move much.

I have just had a little check around the counties (I can now I have renewed my ‘Premium’) and I am losing ground.

Although I am top of the tree in Shropshire there are 10 regions where I fail to make the top 50 raters and that is only going to get worse I imagine.

I look forward to @mr_pink_152’s handy work come July and perusing his table.
