    The only way I can find it is to search for Loophole Brewing, and then click on loophole brewing.

    It's clearly there but a search doesn't find it.

    Thanks, Larry

    No idea - looks like it should come up in the search. I have tried a couple of variations of using the brewery name and parts of the beer name and it does not find it either.

    @Todd any ideas?

    Odd glitch here. Everything looks fine and on the backend it shows up in searches, but for some reason it doesn't on the site using the same query. Also noticed that Google hasn't indexed it yet, which is unusual.

    I'll keep on digging...

    If I search for Old Ox Brewing, I can't find anything, but if I go to my beers and then click on one of those beers, and then the brewery, I can find it. Just a weird glich.

    This has been fixed and I've tested the above examples with success.

    The solution is a quick fix, and we take a slight performance hit as a result, but it works and I'll continue to tweak things.

    As a software person, I'm really curious what the actual problem was. (to be fair, I have no web or database experience, let alone search algorithms)

    Anyway, thanks!

    I believe that our previous code was too restrictive and an underlying glitch (yet to be fully identified) made it worse, so I loosened things up a bit.
