As promised today, BeerRiot gets tags!
What are tags? Tags are a way to capture extra information about beers. For example, if a beer is homemade, it would be appropriate to tag it as homebrew. You might also consider tagging organic beers as organic, gluten-free beers as gluten-free, etc.
Another use of tags, that many have been calling for, is to categorize beers by their style. One might consider tagging stouts stout, IPAs ipa, etc. That will make it easy for everyone to find a certain category, if that's what they're looking for.*
What tags are not designed for is labeling beers as good, bad, or any other rating of their quality. The whole point of BeerRiot is that people disagree about what constitutes good and bad in beers. As such, we've blocked such terms from becoming tags.
So, get to tagging. Your only limits are that tags can be no longer than 32 characters, and that they can't be only numerals. The range is open otherwise. What tags will you find useful?
* I also promised, in the post referenced at the start, that I would explain my reasons for leaving out style as an intrinsic property of each beer. I still plan to do that, but I don't have the reasoning written out for public consumption yet.
