Beer Name Formatting Guidelines
Formatting beer names correctly guarantees maximum exposure when you add new beers.
Please follow these guidelines to format beer names correctly.
- Include the brewery name + brand name (Bell’s Two Hearted Ale).
- Do not include the word ‘brewery’ in beer names.
- Do not include additional information about the beer (beer style, ABV, location) in the name . This information will automatically be filled in using information in our database.
- Capitalize beer names correctly (use Bell’s Two Hearted Ale, not bell’s two hearted ale).
- If you’re unsure how a beer is spelled, refer to the beer label, brewery website, or keg collar.
- If you have a cask beer, you do not need to mention this fact in the beer name. You can choose the serving type ‘cask’ from the drop down.
- If you have a vintage beer, include the year at the end of the beer name (Sierra Nevada Bigfoot 2012) if
- The beer is >12 months old
- The beer has a different recipe every year
- If you believe there is incorrect beer information appearing on your page, you can edit beers yourself.
