Do any of you guys think it's ethical to put brews that are in BYO's clone book into the commercial beers page? Or are we going with only info that the brewery puts out?
TX seems to know the rules. But it seems if you list the source and maybe plug the book then it might be okay. You can always delete if asked. It's not like we a using it for profit.--Orfy 02:38, 14 February 2007 (CST)
