I hope the same thing happens there that has happened in Canada with recent purchases. In the case of Molson and Creemore, I believe that only the legacy products are brewed at the original Creemore facilities while the newer products are brewed at the 'Six Pints / BATCH' site in downtown Toronto that used to be home to Amsterdam/Denison's and Duggan's. As for Labatt/Mill Street and Sleemans/Unibroue - all Mill Street and Unibroue brewing was left untouched asided from increased market penetration across Canada....not that Canada needs any more Mill Street.... Aside from Trafalgar being put out of their misery by All or Nothing Brewhouse, I can't think of any mergers between two Canadian craft brewers that was successful. So hopefully America will see a similar story where both brands survive and get more penetration into non-traditional markets (like Ontario, Canada)

i've been meaning to bring this up as well. I think about it every time I visit a brewery page to see what I've had or had not.

A couple other beer rating sites do that. It is a very helpful feature when I go to a brewery or brewpub and want to try something new.

I thought Chopz mentioned this missing feature before, but I could be wrong. The reason it's not on the new site is that it made the brewery page take so much longer to load. I couldn't figure out a good database query. It's been on my list of things to do. Maybe I'll just throw it in there and let it load slowly for now. Or maybe I'll get lucky and come up with a faster query.

I’m ok with a little bit of delay in page load to see data. Good luck for both!!!

Oh yes, was the first thing I mentioned, as real important to me when looking at a brewery page. Don't mind the slowdown. Can always try it for a week and see.

This is weird, but when I did my review for "All Or Nothing Hustle Over Hype " it crashed when posting. Now, I see the review when I click on the beer, but when I check the brewer, it says zero for review for that one. Then, when I click on the logo to go the homepage, it shows I wrote a comment for the beer, but not a review. I am hustling over this :P

Yeah, if it crashed when you made your review, it wasn't able to do all of the functions like update brewery reviews, possibly calculate statistics, calculate your personal statistics, and put the news in the bar stool. As long as the actual review is in there, the other stats can get recalculated, so no big deal. the site has been loading real slow for me. Not sure why, but that's what caused the problem. Maybe I'll try rebooting the server.

Was a reason found why most times, when uploading a pic it works, and then others, it says it has uploaded, but the pic cannot be seen? This is not fun, as when we scroll through the most beer rated, no pics are shown. This does not enhance newcomers to look at reviews. A pic says a million thing :P P.S. Just tried to upload pic for Monsregius Crepuscula from https://www.monsregius.ca/crepuscula/ https://www.beerpal.com/beer.asp?id=66554
