    Thanks! Finally, problem solved: it seems that Maui Brewing Co. is not being counted as Hawaii? Is this intentional?

    Love the new feature!! This is why (one of many reasons) BA is the best. I really love diving into my stats. I am a beer geek after all!

    It's an old master and being excluded as a result. I think I'll work on including everything until we apply a new solution for beers listed under multiple locations. Updates to follow...

    Even more than I expected - some simple numbers would've been a nice start, and I think this goes a step or two further with the apparently working sorting and paging. I also like that there is possibly more stats geeky in the future. Thanks, Todd!

    The count for states seems to be off by one now - it shows me as having 50 states but still missing 2 (Arkansas and South Dakota) and only 51 total entries.

    This is great! Thanks for the update. Turns out I'm way closer to hitting all the states and styles than I thought. Guess I have some new goals now...

    Twice in the past I noted my styles count had dropped by one, then I had to figure out which one so I could review another example of that style. That PITA would now be eliminated as I would instantly know which it was.

    Also lost a state once - apparently a brewer having breweries in multiple states had a beer "corrected" as far as which brewery it came from - or a collaboration beer was re-attributed to another collaborator in another state. Never did figure that one out, other than the state I then needed. This too would be easier.

    It's part of the old master listing issue that's been noted in this thread and others.

    Basically, a script was counting brewery entries that contained no value for state or country (old master listings). It now ignores these entries, which should sync with the lists on the beer stats pages, and I'm pushing an update for recently active users right now. Everyone else will eventually be updated.

    We still need to sort out those old master listings, but stats should be a bit more accurate now.

    Same here-ish. I have never had any beers from the state of Arkansas but I see 50 states for me in the non-extended beer stats. Wondering if the DC Brau beer - OTWOA was counted as a state?

    Not trying to be a pain in the ass, just something I noticed.

    Also, possibly in 2019, I'll consider being premium. If anything, I applaud Todd for his hard work in this. :beers:

    All I know is I spent (wasted, if you ask my wife) an inordinate amount of time figuring out which states and styles I needed, and the new enhancement gives me the exact same info with significantly less effort expended...

    Oh my geekiness.

    I am a cheap bastard. Why pay $20 for a free site? Curiosity got the better of me and i signed up to become a premium member. Bingo! Instant stats for what I had been trying to manually calculate by state, country and style. Love it! Thanks @Todd for the upgraded functionality and work.

    Might Puerto Rico be listed as a state on BA at some point? I see it's listed as a country, but that's not accurate as it is a US territory, as much a state as DC is. Granted, DC is CONUS.

    I don't think that Puerto Rico will be listed as a state (or counted towards the states count) on BA unless there is a change to approve statehood but I could be wrong. Washington DC is a little different as it is the capital of the United States and thus contained within it for most (if not all) purposes of geographical classifications that I have seen.

    All of the US Territories (that have Place entries) that I am aware of are listed as separate countries on BA - American Samoa (0), Guam (3), Northern Mariana Islands (0), Puerto Rico (42), US Virgin Islands (10), and US Minor Outlying Islands (0). I don't think there is any impetus to make them appear as states... Why do you think they should?

    I believe Puerto Rico is the largest territory, probably the most modern, probably having the most craft, the closest, and the one that keeps coming up as a possible state. If one of the US territories were to be included, it should be Puerto Rico. Another option is to combine all of the territories into a "state" called US Territories. Or lump them into DC and rename it "Swamp". :stuck_out_tongue:

    Nice add based on what I'm hearing. Awfully tempting for me to drop the money on the Premium membership, but just can't pull the trigger just yet for some reason despite contributing what I have thus far (not saying it's all that much).

    Trivial cost compared to what most of us spend on our beer habit already.

    I spend less than half for a year on a BA membership, than I do on any Bruery BBA bottle. I've bought more of them than I'd like to admit this year. They are worth the price, but the premium membership is even more worthy just for no Ads. Rest of the perks are just additional pluses.

    I like the extended stats, but I'm also curious to know my average ratings by style and also how my ratings by style compare to other users' averages. Can you please add our average score and average rDev for each style in the extended stats?

    I've added your average for each item. I meant to when this was launched, but must have gotten sidetracked with all of the updates.

    I'll consider the rDev.

    Enjoy!

    It would be interesting to know if our preference for different beer styles deviates significantly from other users. As you have already calculated the averages for each style, would it be that much more work to add an additional column with the average rDev by style? Thanks for giving it some thought!

    I do that myself — well, not rdev, but difference from average rating - by style and brewery ( so I know, for example, that I’m not a big NEIPA or Allagash fan). But agree it would be a great feature. And I would honestly pay more attention to BA-supplied data.
