#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.

The Beer Citizen Shop is open for business!

image

You know those spiffy t-shirts that are awarded to our Citizens of the Month? How about those handmade bottle totes you’ve seen on Twitter? Well, now’s your chance to pick them up for yourself, as well as many other beer-centric goodies, in the Beer Citizen Shop!

In addition to Beer Citizen swag, you’ll also have the opportunity to pick up several other awesome items we recommend any Citizen should own, from glassware to books to homebrew equipment. These items are sold by Amazon, and we just make a small percentage as an affiliate store.

We’ll just come out and say it… Beer Citizen is a labor of love. We’ve made it a point to keep the apps, the site, and everything it provides free of charge. The opening of the Beer Citizen Shop gives you the opportunity not only to help support the site (servers ain’t cheap!), but also to help spread the word to your fellow beer enthusiasts, and look sharp while you’re doing it!

If there’s ever anything else you’d like to see us offering in the shop (beer cozies? hats? flight paddles?), let us know via Facebook or Twitter and we’ll see what we can do! In the meantime, thanks for supporting Beer Citizen, and happy shopping!

Congrats to Ron, our November Citizen of the Month!

image

Wed like to Congratulate Ron for becoming our newest Citizen of the Month! He’s earned himself a free Beer Citizen t-shirt for his consistent long-term efforts of adding quality data when he reviews beers, adding new beers to our database, and traveling around the US taking the apps where he goes. Give him a follow, and remember, you too, could win the honor (and the awesome shirt). Just keep that data (and new beers, corrections, photos, etc.) coming in!
