Most of my country rates can be contributed to @grumbo, @danlo, and @minutemat over the past few years I was in UK.


Still Canada for me - and apart from visiting a ‘Canadian’ pub in London (where none fo the avialable beers were Canadian as far as I could see), I’ve made no efforts to sort that situation out. After Canada it’s Brazil then Finland then Switzerland. I really should put more effort in, rather than just rating UK beers pretty much all the time!

Mine remains Dominican Republic 5 yrs later

My hardest back in 2015 was Mincronesia that was about 3rd before i got 2 bottles and shared them and it jumped to 8-10th but i see is not at 18th with 22 ratings

in 15th with 19 ratings

So shout out to Taster Grumbo … via of Nisse666


It makes out west via that distributor also, as I’ve picked some up in Idaho.

I am now on 160 countries:
