National Beer DayNew Beer's Eve — Relisted. Vegaswikian (talk) 06:18, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

The citations listed are only half right. The title of the day April 7th has been many things. It was actually called "Brew Years Eve" by the American Brewers association for a while. Nobody had celebrated it in several years and when I contacted the Brewers Association for information, they told me they were no longer celebrating the holiday as it was too close to craft ale week. I can proved many citations that name the holiday "National Beer Day" however this wiki won't allow me to use those sites. The name change to "New Beer's Eve" is ridiculous and unfounded at best especially since your wiki article has April 6th list as New Beer's Eve (which is correct). Why would you name April 7th "New Beer's Eve" when it is the day we are celebrating the return of beer to the US. New beer's eve should be the day before (April 6th). Think about it....December 31st...New Year's Eve. The night before the holiday. December 24th....Christmas Eve...the day before the holiday. All this to sum up that April 7th is and should continue to be called "National Beer Day". April 6th is New Beer's Eve. Do yourselves a favor and do a google search next time. See how many times April 7th comes up as "National Beer Day" and how many times it comes up "New Beer's Eve". The article that has the name wrong should be removed. —Preceding unsigned comment added by JustinSmith14607 (talkcontribs) 15:39, 7 June 2010 (UTC)

Reference format[edit]

I created the references in a format which provided a convenience link, and which clearly showed the author, the title of the story, the newspaper, and the original date of publication. The references have been immediately reformatted in a way which removes most of that information and instead just prominently states what random abstract link has the story online now, leaving out the newspaper, the author, and the original publication date. I object to this, and request that if a fancy citation template like Template:Cite news is used, it should provide full and informative information for the actual reference and not just some transient convenience link's HTML here in the article. I used the news cite on ref 1 as an example. I'm done for now. If someone has the time to clean up this mess, I would greatly appreciate it. Edison (talk) 03:17, 4 February 2010 (UTC)
