Description:Beer Buddy is a database for rating beers you have sampled. The database contains a baseline of 868 beers, which you may sample and rate (of course you can add others). The database contains the fields region, country, beer, brewery, type (a Popup), rank (a Popup of from "excellent" down to “close the brewery”), proof, and a section for your (personal) notes. The fields region and country, come from a DB Popup named “Brewed In”. The database rankings are “clean”, so that you can rate the beers for yourself (it doesn’t matter what I think of them!).
Has Data:Yes
Has Forms:No
Filters:Beer Buddy contains a filter for each region (North America, Europe, Oceania, South America, Asia, Africa, and all regions). It also contains the filter “ranked”, so you can easily see a running list of all beers you have personally ranked.
Sorting:If you have a preference for a particular type of beer, you may wish to sort by type. By default, the database is sorted by country.
Comments:I put the database together as a way for my friends and I to rate the beers we sample. I pulled a lot of the information off from the web, but some of the beers are personal favorites. Although there are only two styles of beers, ale (top fermenting) and lager (bottom fermenting), there are many variations of them. Some may feel that the type list is a bit of overkill. Feel free to reclassify the beers if you want (i.e. from “Amber Ale” to “Ale”, etc.). I hope you will enjoy it. Life is too short to drink cheap beer!
