How many beers would you need to rate to get to 100 in each European country?

The topic title pretty much explains what this thread is about. Don’t mind me as I move a bunch of post from a different topic over. :wink:

Euro gang can challenge itself to rate 100 in every European country* (some countries must be left out as they don’t have even theoretical 100). Still 40+ countries should be doable over time.
Bonus challenge (and even way harder one I think): 100 place ratings in every European country. I haven’t rated even 100 places in Estonia :smiley:

*Country as defined by rb of course.

I am working on 100 place ratings in every European country. As a non-resident (at least for now) this might take me a while. Only 3 countries so far.

Are you mad?

<*))))))><

What’s the official listing for what countries are in Europe? I am curious how close I am to having 10 ratings from each country let alone 100!

I don’t think there is an official list that 100% matches with rb countries?
Hope I didn’t forget any country, but the list could be something like this:

  1. Abkhazia*
  2. Albania
  3. Andorra
  4. Armenia*
  5. Artsakh* (this shouldn’t exist any more, I think?)
  6. Azerbaijan*
  7. Austria
  8. Belarus**
  9. Belgium
  10. Bosnia and Herzegovina
  11. Bulgaria
  12. Croatia
  13. Cyprus
  14. Czech Republic
  15. Denmark
  16. England
  17. Estonia
  18. Faroe Islands
  19. Finland

*Depends heavily how you define Europe.
**I think Belarus and Russia can be left off from the challenge at the moment.

List of countries based on conservative definition of Europe. I left out all of the countries without 100 beers and with * in the previous post.
Note that in some of the countries in the following list you can rate 100 beers/ciders/meads in theory only. For example even if in theory there have been 100+ beers/ciders on Isle of Man, getting 100 will probably be multi-year visit often/live there thing… and not sure you could do it even then. At the same time it takes only one new craft brewery to release 100+ new beers in a year to change all of that…

  1. Austria
  2. Belgium
  3. Bosnia and Herzegovina
  4. Bulgaria
  5. Croatia
  6. Cyprus
  7. Czech Republic
  8. Denmark
  9. England
  10. Estonia
  11. Faroe Islands
  12. Finland
  13. France
  14. Germany
  15. Greece
  16. Hungary
  17. Iceland
  18. Ireland
  19. Isle of Man
  20. Italy
  21. Jersey
  22. Latvia
  23. Lithuania
  24. Luxembourg
  25. Malta

    *rb doesn’t list 100 beers, but I guess some may not be listed in rb.
    **Albania seems to be the only big enough, known enough European country where 100 beers are not even theoretically possible.

Not likely to make another European country over 100 unless my travel plans start to take in places purely for beer rating (not going to happen).

Channel Islands are missing

I assume you mean Jersey and Guernsey (please use rb names, then we can be sure that we are talking about the same thing :slight_smile: ). I added Jersey to the both lists as technically even 100 is (almost) doable, and Guernsey to the first list.

Channel Islands are a group of countries (well small islands classed independently).

Jersey, Guernsey, Alderney and Sark.

The first two certainly brew. The latter two don’t (not sure if ever likely to).

Thanks. As far as I can see the latter two are not in rb list? Anyway now it should be updated. If anyone notices something else missing, let me know. Like I said there is no 1:1 matching list I could use, so it is manual work.
