I believe this is a bug
When in the directory, choosing a country from the dropdown list displays a list of beers from that country. If you select the sort headings while in the country, you are reverted back to the entire world
So, while in the entire world, I can sort by location and see Albianian breweries listed first, Algerian next, etc
While in the entire world, I can sort by beers and see that we have 256 of Mikkeller's 1000+ beers listed, fiollowed by Sierra Nevera with 204, etc
While in the entire world I can sort by score and see that Rochefort has the highest score in our databse, followed by Westvleteren, etc
If I switch to Canada, I see a list of Canada's brewers alphebetizedm but if I select location, beers, or score, I get the entire world lists.
To me, that's a bug!
