Better Craft Beer Rankings. Sort of. The Hall of Taps has been around for a couple of years now. I haven’t done much with it. I’ve updated the craft beer rankings to reflect the new Hall Ranking formula (more on that in the next post).
Over the last year, I’ve had the hall sitting on a PHP driven site. Which was a bad choice as I don’t work much with PHP? I’ve moved the Hall to an ASP.NET site with a new URL. The old URL halloftaps.com will automatically redirect to the new one. Here you’ll be able to search beers and breweries for their hall rating, as well as being able to compare other craft beer.
In the next couple of weeks, I should have a page up for users to search styles. The functionality is already there I just have fully configured it yet. Hopefully, everyone is as excited as I am to have the hall more public facing that it already was.
If you had gone to the hall in the last year and tried to click on some of the pages, you would have been redirected to a coming soon page. Well, that has changed.
Admittedly, there are probably still some kinks in the site, so if you notice one, be sure to shoot me an email, you can find that on the about page.
I’m a big fan of baseball statistics, and baseball-reference is a favorite site of mine. BR, as well as the Hall of Stats, were a big inspiration for the Hall of Taps. Why can’t we judge craft beer using data that’s readily available to the public (Thank you Untappd)?
Go ahead and search through all the beers and breweries in the hall. I have noticed there are some duplicates in there. I’m guessing that Untappd has the same beer names associated with different IDs.
Cleaning up the data is on my todo list for the hall of taps. So be patient.
Cheers and I hope you enjoy the Hall of Taps 2.0.
