Ratebeer best awards started rolling out three days ago but still no discussion about them on the forums and I wonder why.
Haven’t people noticed, are they waiting till the last category winners are announced, they just don’t care anymore or has the userbase become so minimal?
A brewery from my homeland Greece was announced Best New Brewer in the world and has a beer in the top 100 beers of the year, and although I think they deserve at least one prize, I would expect an uproar about homerism, ratings manipulation, bugged algorithm etc as it always happens.
Had no idea this was happening. I, like most people here, never visit the homepage which is apparently the only place it’s mentioned, and it’s a damn small mention at that. I always go straight to my profile (activity or ratings) or the forums.
I think all of those things are partly responsible. I do wonder why joet didn’t post about it though. Anyone else feeling a bit uneasy about RB recently? The complete disregard for the poll results, the lack of promotion for RBB, Compile Ratings being left broken so we can’t export and leave. Something’s going on…
Support in that a small country with not a long brewing history can actually make a great beer. I was reffering to your posts actually. Or maybe it wasn’t sarcasm and you really don’t believe that someone who started as a homebrewer can adapt his recipe into a greater scale, produce it in a professional brewery and the result being a really good beer.
I admit. I emailed a few of my favorite brewers asking them if they were looking forward to this years results and if they thought they’d win anything…all of them, “I didn’t know there was going to be one this year”
