Meet July’s Citizen of the month, Louis Félix Trudel!

It’s been a little while since we’ve had an international Citizen of the Month award, but this month, the honor (and the free t-shirt) heads to the Great White North! Louis Félix Trudel, hailing from Quebec, has been a fixture on the Leaderboards, adding (and suggesting corrections for) lots of beers and breweries, as well as reviewing and photographing tons of beer. So… raise your pints and click those follow buttons - here’s to you, Louis Félix!

Citizen of the Month Retrospective: G Gue, May 2014 COTM

image


Well, we’re only human…. or maybe it was the beer. In any case, while we recognized our May 2014 Citizen of the Month, G Gue, on our various social channels, it seems we neglected to do so here, for our faithful blog readers!

G Gue is a great example of someone who does it all… reviewing lots of beers with great data, of course, but also adding beers/photos, suggesting corrections, and the like. People like him are what’s taking Beer Citizen to the next level.

Think that you, too, have what it takes to become a Citizen of the Month? We’ll be announcing our July COTM shortly, but keep that beer data coming in, and you could be earning that free t-shirt and the entailing celebrity status as soon as August creeps up on us. In the meantime, let’s drink… to G Gue!

#UnitedForBikes, United by Beer

Bikes and beer go way back, so it’s with great honor that we came to be involved with the #UnitedForBikes campaign from Peopleforbikes.org and World Bicycle Relief. A few months ago, we were approached to contribute several of our hand-crafted 4x22oz. bottle boxes to be used as prizes and bidding items in fundraising auctions. We know a good opportunity when we see one, so we jumped at the chance.

During the last few days of May, you’ve got the chance to pitch in to help this great cause, too! Go to #UnitedforBikes to read more about the month-long fundraising effort and join us in advancing the power of bikes to change lives locally and globally.

Cheers!

App update!

New toys! The Beer Citizen apps for both Android and iOS have just been updated to version 1.5. New features include:

  • Leaderboards. You asked for it! The leaderboards show which Citizens have been hard at work entering data, which beers and breweries are doing well over various timeframes, and more. Pro-tip: If you’re aiming for Citizen of the Month and a free Beer Citizen t-shirt, being listed on the leaderboards is a good start!

  • Review sorting. Now you can sort reviews to see what beers you or any other Citizen liked most/least or sort by other metrics. 

    Step 1: tap the review count on any user or beer profile:

    Step 2: select how you want to sort the reviews from the pull-down menu:

    Step 3: profit.

  • Photo deletion. If you ever upload the wrong photo, or one you just don’t like, you can now delete it by simply clicking the link below the full-size photo.

  • Performance improvements. Lots of things under the hood have been addressed to make things smoother and snappier all over the place.

  • SSL support. We worry about site and data security so that you can focus on the beers and reviews! So, relax and have another cold one!

Leaderboards!

People like to know what’s best. In the past, we’ve provided a top beers page to let you know what the front-runner beers are. Starting today, however, launching with the new version of the Beer Citizen apps for Android and iOS, we’re taking that to the next level.

Top Citizens
Now you can find out who among your fellow Citizens are contributing to the site the most. Who’s entered the most reviews? Who’s entered the most data? Who’s the busiest with photos, check-ins, followers, or beers added to the database? Now you’ll know!

Beers and Breweries
Now you can keep tabs on what the hottest beers and breweries are, whether that’s by top overall rating, the most reviews entered, or whichever has the most followers.

The WayBack Machine
Whether you’re viewing Citizens, beers, or breweries, you can select the time range you’d like to see them ranked within. You can find out who gets the top ranking over the last week, month, year, or for all-time.

As always, we’d love to hear what you think about the new feature. Please feel free to reach out to us on Twitter, Facebook, or our Feedback page.

Congrats to our new Citizen of the Month for April, G! Be sure to give him a follow. While we usually give the CotM a free Beer Citizen t-shirt, he already bought his in the Beer Citizen Shop. Therefore, we’re sending him an upgrade - a handmade bottle tote! Keep all those great reviews coming in, and you could be the next citizen of the month. Or, you could support Beer Citizen and look good doin’ it, by getting your t-shirt right here.

Two Exemplary Citizens!

It’s that time again, wherein we take a moment to salute one of our better users, who we affectionately call Citizen of the Month. In this post, however we actually get to salute TWO!

In all our excitement recently in publishing our 2013 Year In Beer, launching the new Beer Citizen Shop and sending out our first Beer Citizen Mash Tun newsletter, we forgot to post our January Citizen of the Month here. So, without further ado, click that Follow button for January’s CotM, ABQMike!

Secondly, and more recently, we send out our thanks (and a free Beer Citizen T-Shirt) to February’s CotM, McBud! Give him a follow, too!

Think you have what it takes to be Citizen of the month? Keep reviewing those beers, posting those photos, tweeting those tweets, and it could be you. You just might have what it takes. Until then, cheers!
