Proposed features/Beer details
|Proposal status:||Draft (under way)|
|Applies to:||node area|
|Definition:||Intended as an attribute to refine places that sell beer|
This is an attempt to store more details about the beer that is offered.
For many people it does matter what kind of beer is offered, and whether it is draught beer or bottled beer.
Use drink:*=yes/draught/bottled/no where * is a placeholder for a type of beer. See below for a selection of beer types and add more types to the list if they are missing. Be aware that the same type of beer might be known under different names in different regions. There is also types and subtypes (e.g. there is pale lager and dark lager which are both subtypes of lager beer). Be more specific if you can.
|OSM-tag||Beer type||Also known as||Notes||Picture|
|drink:beer=*||beer||This is the most generic variation not giving any detail on the type of beer but better than nothing. It is sufficient to mark if there is draught beer or not. If you know the detailed type you'd better use it.|
|drink:lager=*||lager||This is a very generic term. If you know the detailed type better use it.|
|drink:pale_lager=*||pale lager||Helles, Export||This is a generic type for a pale lager|
|drink:dark_lager=*||dark lager||This is a generic type for a dark lager|
|drink:pilsner=*||Pilsner||Pils||This is a specific type of pale lager with a distinctive taste.|
|drink:alt=*||Altbier||This is a beer brewed in Düsseldorf and other places at the "Niederrhein"|
|drink:kölsch=*||Kölsch||This is a beer brewed in the region Cologne/Bonn|
|drink:märzen=*||Märzen||This is a beer brewed in Bavaria/Austria|
|drink:dunkles=*||Dunkles Bier||Braun-/Rotbier||Austrians and Bavarians differentiate between Dunkles (dark beer) and Schwarzbier (black beer, i.e. dark_lager)|
|drink:wheat_beer=*||Wheat beer||typically a sweet tasting beer, mostly brewed in USA and Australia, but also in Germany, e.g. Berliner Weiße. Not to be confused with Weizenbier!|
|drink:weizen=*||Weizenbier||Weißbier||This is the generic form for a beer brewed in Bavaria/Austria|
|drink:hefeweizen=*||Hefeweizen||has a hazy appearance due to yeast|
|drink:dunkles_hefeweizen=*||Dunkles (dark) Hefeweizen||made with darker, more highly-kilned malt|
Bock is the german expression for extra strong beer, and there are even Doppelbock (double bock) beers. They exist for different beer types, including lager, Märzen and Weizen. If such a beer is offered, is suggested to append '_bock' to the beer type (e.g. for the well known Aventinus you'd use drink:dunkles_hefeweizen_bock:aventinus=bottled)
You can also add the brand that is offered for a certain type of beer (or other drink). We are not going to collect a list of all possible brands in the OSM wiki but rather follow the same generic scheme.
drink:*:brand=yes where * is the type of beer (see above) and brand is the brand. As this is meant to be a formal tag we will not use capitalized characters in this key and whitespace will be transformed to underscores.
Example: If there was pub selling a variant of pale lager beer named "ABC Beer" , the tagging would be:
Note: Use the brand-style additionally to the type-style, not exclusively, to facilitate evaluation. The brand is optional.
