    Several updates have been made to brewery beer lists.

    Your Ratings
    Your personal beer ratings will now appear on brewery beer lists. You can sort the brewery's beers by your ratings. Your rating (and the accompanying red check mark) will now appear on the list immediately after you rate it.

    Sorting a brewery beer list now happens instantly and does not require the page to refresh. It is also possible to sort by multiple columns by holding the SHIFT key.

    Empty Columns Hidden
    The "Yours" and "Bros" columns will no longer appear if you/the bros have not rated a beer from that brewery.

    Responsive Beer Lists
    On smaller screens such as smartphones the brewery beer lists will be presented as a list instead of a table. It is possible to toggle between the new "List" view and the familiar "Table" view.

    Performance has also been optimized as a result of these changes. Many of these changes will be applied to other pages in time.

    I'd like to reinforce that not only does @Mike's improvements make brewery beer lists more helpful, and easier to view and sort, but the underlying changes should significantly reduce the overhead on these pages; especially on pages with a lot of beers.

    Love this. Thank you.

    Of course I want more. Can you apply the same to each beer style page?

    Yes. We are planning on eventually rolling this functionality out to other lists. No ETA.

    Yes, that is the direction we are heading. However, there will need to be some changes before the sorting updates can be applied to lists that span multiple pages, such as the beer styles.

    Kudos!! And please keep the "easier to see analysis" functionality coming, we stat geeks appreciate it.

    I noted on the smartphone longer lists were nicer to read but harder to scroll through. Thankfully, landscape (90° rotation) helped :wink:

    Noted a different behavior the other day, but didn't look into what was different. I did note that if I go to a beer page by clicking on it, then when I come back the sort order reverts back to default. I expect his would be difficult to avoid, so I'll open them in another tab. Nice mods, thanks!

    Nice update, looks good! Wondering if the "recent activity" function will come back, noticed that it was missing. It was a useful tool to see new reviews, hope it comes back.

    Keep up the good work! It would also be cool to segment out our personal ratings by style. It would be easy to share with others your top 10 American IPA's for example.
