Rate Beers

Ok, the updates aren't better than beer, but don't leave just yet.  We've made some big improvements to help you find beers by styles, breweries, and top rated beers.

First of all, we've expanded the functionality of the top beers list on the home page.  Not only are we tracking your favorite beers, but we'll show you the week by week changes in rank as votes come in.  The list has been expanded to the top 20 beers, and everything is is now active: click on the beer name for details and stats, click on the brewery for a list of beers by brewery, and click on the style to get a list of beers by style.  This method for searching for beers is continued throughout the site and you can constantly expand and narrow your searches as you look for great Portland beers.  Of course, you can still rate your favorite beers by logging in through Facebook on the beer pages.  Let your voice be heard!

We've also tweaked our similar beers algorithm to give you a better comparison.  Every beer you see on the site will also display a link to any similar beers we can find.  Here's a list of beers similar to Hopworks' Original Red, with beers that also have their own similar beers.  It's as if Alice fell down a rabbit hole within a rabbit hole! Start with beers you love, find beers you need to try.

The breweries section has also been updated to show you the latest posts tagged with the brewery.  Not only will it show you what's been happening with each brewery, but it will also show us the gaps where we need to provide more coverage.

This update represents a significant improvement in the usability and performance of the site.  All of the changes were based on suggestions from our team and from you.  The process is ever-evolving, and we'd love you input.  Let us know how we can keep improving!

Cheers Portland!
