    When looking at a brewery's website what are you usually searching for? Tap lists, beer information, brewery hours, etc.

    Tap lists, beer information, that's about it.

    Everything above and merchandise.

    I've ordered some beer glasses from a couple breweries online. I've thought about ordering some posters, but until I have a dedicated beer drinking cave, that probably won't happen.

    Local breweries or breweries I plan to visit: tap lists, food menu, merchandise. Maybe tour hours.

    Out of state breweries that I like: distribution/new beer release info, merchandise.

    I usually look at the website to check the hours and to see what is currently available on tap and/or to take home.

    Also, events calendars for special releases/events and sometime check for food availability/options.

    Always a plus when the site displays nicely on a smart phone.

    Does anyone remember the name of the brewery that had the website that would take you to this if you answered "no" on the "are you 21?" question?

    I don't use websites often, but when I do it's looking for business hours, and usually because the hours were not found on Facebook.

    Coupons. Sadly, it seems more miss than hit.

    haha - made me think of the snarky answer: To get pissed off at a computer carding me.

    But really, I usually go for taproom hours. But, a close second is to find information about a beer for adding, updating, or reviewing a beer. It's nice to have a reference for the BA team if I do supply a change.

    I like finding out the history of the breweries and some biographical info on the principals involved. Getting info about their beer is easily available from multiple sources.

    Most of the time it's beer information and/or information about the brewery. I seldom need to use a website to find out brewery hours and/or tap lists for places local to me.

    If I am visiting the brewery, the tap list and hours of operation.

    If I am not visiting the brewery, I am looking for limited glassware or tin signs.

    I look what's on tap some, but mainly I check to see the carry out options. FFF, for example, is local and I only check to see what's available at the kiosk before I go to pick up because it's always changing.
