Personally a 1% (total) ABV shift in a pils wouldn’t get me adding a new beer to the database.
If another admin wants to add a very similar beer i wont be losing sleep.
More about recipe shift for me … maybe email the brewer and ask them if they see it as a different beer ?
I agree with Cloin, a reduction of 1pc point isn’t all that significant. The brewery is selling cans of this on their webshop with the same description and branding as before and I couldn’t see anything announced on their socials about it being different in any way. Unless confirmed to be a recipe change I’d rather just edit the ABV and add a note in the description “previously seen at 5% ABV” or whatever.
Brunswick Brrewery in Derby use the name “Engine shed Project” for their experimental beers. There was already one beer listed under this name, and I have just added another. However, rhere are quite a few other beers we have listed that should be Engine Shed Project ones. The following beers need to have their names changed
