It's been ages since we've update our Beer Styles. In fact, I think that the last new style we added was American Black Ale and that was probably upwards of a decade ago. But with a ton of help from @Keene and @Rebecca, I'm stoked to announce that not only have we added some new styles, but we've recategorized, renamed, and refreshed all styles. https://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/styles/ What's Changed? I had to create a new style editing tool that would allow us to easily add and edit beer styles. And now that we have it our styles should never get stagnant again. Where appropriate, styles now have an origin prefix. In most cases it's a country, but region or city are also used. Assume "-style" applies to all listings outside of the origin prefix. 2018 CraftBeer.com Beer Styles Guide were used to: Build out style categories that are a bit more descriptive and consumer friendly. Apply styles and descriptions that were missing. Update ABV ranges. Add IBU ranges. Recommended glassware now focuses on a single glassware type. Food and beer pairings, cellaring temps, and serving temps have been retired for now. Your rating (if any) will now be displayed in style lists, however, you can't sort by the "Yours" column just yet. New Styles: American Brett American Brut IPA American Imperial Red Ale American Imperial Porter Belgian Blonde Ale New England IPA Robust Porter Smoke Porter We plan on periodically revisiting styles, tweaking things as needed, and have already identified a few more styles that'll be added soon. Beer Stats I've forced our daily beer stats script to run on the existing changes. This mostly impacts the Top Beer lists for beer styles, which will see a lot of activity until moving beers around has settled and the new IPA styles will no doubt be fun to watch. We Need Your Help! (Moving Beers) Speaking of moving beers around, I've been able to handle thousands beers with a script and logged the changes for reference. I'll probably hit the script a few more items, but we're going to need your help to suggest updates. If you see a beer that needs its style updated, simply go to the beer's page, click "Beer Tools," and then "Suggest Edit." And brewers who've claimed their page can self-edit their beers under the same tools. That's in in a nutshell. I've got some cleaning up to do over the weekend, but please let me know if you run into any major issues. In the meantime, enjoy the updates, please suggest edits as needed, and feel free to drop us any feedback that you might have. Cheers!
