Should barrel-aged be a category?

I realize we just made like 40 new categories but I was thinking that especially for imp stouts and porters, this would be really nice. Would help me avoid them, for example. Thoughts?

And then on down the road to sherry - port - gin - rye - single malt scotch - scotch - peated - brandy - calvados - cabernet - syrah - chardonnay - and on a bit more

Flavored should be anything which has a non-hop/non-malt flavor added to the base beer?

Instead of creating new styles, maybe we should focus in updating the TAG glossary and add them to the beers when needed…

TBH I wish we would have done that instead of breaking them out as they are now. Brewers no longer color (brew) inside the lines making style possibilities endless!

The strength of beer!

No. Why do we collectively always forget about tags.

Let’s just categorized every as “beer” and “other”

I agree with this for sure, but as I’ve been saying from the beginning, nobody will ever use tags to any degree until we can add them when we add a beer. Nobody’s going in after for every beer and sending in corrections…

Because we can’t add them.

Why not? I usually add tags to beers I drink unless I get logged out when I click on “edit tags” (which happens quite often, not just recently).

I mean we can’t add them when we add beers. I add a ton of beers, and put in all the info I have when I do, like abv, IBU etc. I would enter tags if it was possible on adding a new beer, but I’m not going to do that extra click - too much extra work.

@services anyway we could put that possibility on adding a beer?

Good point, I never even paid attention to the fact you can’t do it when adding a beer and only after going back to “edit” it. Definitely something to consider on the devs side!

Every time I try to add a tag I get logged out. I used to add tags on every single beer I rated, now I do it for none.
