This place was left open when the brewery shut:

Anyone come across this yet?

Get ready to see some ‘interestingly named brews’ at a Greene King pub near you!

https://banksidebrew.com/

I have added their first and so far only beer as being brewed by Greene King.

Apparently they’ve had to recall the Jeremy Kyle Strong Lager

Unfortunately even more complicated than first imagined. It is a set up that owns some dodgy branding, they are based in Oxfordshire and are using rebranded GK beers. Just shows the depths that GK will plummet to, to find a market.

I believe we are up to date again (hopefully). Some complicated stuff tackled there.

I’ve no idea how this happened but I was browsing through my US rates earlier today and came across a beer I rated that I’ve definitely never had before. My rating doesn’t match up with the beer description at all so I’m guessing this is from some database glitch or something.

https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/dubliner-irish-lager/50823/368991/
After some time spent cross referencing with my own records, I’ve deduced the actual beer this rating is for is https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/wadworth-the-bishop-s-tipple-bottle/50824/
This makes sense as the beer ID is one number out, so definitely a database issue happened at some point. Who knows how many other people things like this have happened to!

Anyway, would an admin be so kind to move my rating over to that please? To preserve the original date. Cheers

#895

Hopefully that will have now happened.

#896

It’s deleted completely now :frowning:
Another broken function of the website?

I’ll add “unable to maintain the integrity of my ratings” to the list of reasons I have to stop using Ratebeer.

#897

Really sorry about that. I followed the normal procedure. I will bring it up in the Admin Forum.

Not your fault, Glen. The blame is squarely on RB staff for this, they obviously changed something related to it and didn’t actually test it still worked.

Anyway, not the end of the world. I still have the original details of my rating saved so I can write it again, just means all my milestone beers are off-by-one now. Unless joet can edit the date back to what it was, but whatever. Probably would have happened at some point due to merges and things.

Garden Cider moved at some point.

Don’t know whether it worth adding that this place is in the basement of the 7 bone restaurant. In fact it must be owned by them because the house beer in the bar is the Bison Cosmic Bone Juice which is brewd for the restaurants.

It looks like theres a problem searching for newly added beers. I searched for the new Brewdog fanzine beers and they didn’t show up. However, I remember seeing that they were added in my ‘latest activity’ feed. Sure enough, searching Brewdog’s beer list they are there. However, leaparsons has added them again since.

I anticipate this won’t be fixed any time soon, and probably will keep on happening so before you add a beer I’d recommend searching the brewery list first. I’ve added quite a few beers recently so no doubt I’ve fallen foul of this.

#902

I’ve noticed that searches don’t seem to bring up beers that haven’t yet been rated.

#903

I have just added this brewery, but must have missed off Derbyshire from the address. I was sure I had included it.

#904

The new Brewdog beers are still not coming up in searches, and are still being added. I also added a couple of places recently, and reviewed them, and they’re not coming up in searches

Bear’s website mentions that they are based in London as per the address on Companies House:

https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/08978610

https://www.ratebeer.com/brewers/beaers-bear-brewery-co/23988/

(The Godalming address is that of a director who resigned last year)

Have never seen their beers for sale. Looks like the few recent ratings on Untappd were outside of the UK.

Shropshire brewery closures:

Both Dickensian and Gorgeous have gone to the wall.

Battlefield Brewery closed in January too. Someone from Birmingham bought the building and equipment and now puts out beer under the name Evolution, though nothing in bottle / can & nothing available anywhere in Shropshire from what i can see

According to CAMRA this pub is closed, only know that because I recently went to Rugby and my research dug it up, but I never actually went to the pub to confirm this.
