I recently read an entry in which someone was crowing that it was nice, right, sweet & fitting (dulce et decorum est) to be the first reviewer of a beer that he had added. That's all well & good … as long as you are NOT adding a duplicate listing! Whoops. For your edification - The Bro. Woody Method of Adding a Beer on BeerAdvovate: 1) Procure said beer; 2) Take & resize a picture for submission so that others may recognize this beer on sight; 3) Check the brewery's website for Notes/Commercial Description as provided; 3) Build the name fully and correctly, i.e. "Snow Cap Hoppy Wheat (Ale)" vice "Snow Cap", relying on the adage that "If it appears on the label, then it part of the full name"; 4) Find out the ABV & add it, even though it is "Optional". There are plenty of current resources to get this information.; 5) Submit your carefully researched & vetted entry.; 6) Once submitted, submit the picture for approval; 7) Next, submit the Notes for inclusion; 8) Finally, at least rate, but hopefully, review your beer; 8) Bask in the reflected glory as others discover the beer that you have added. That's my mantra. It's nothing nouveau.
