Initially we need five pages.
It needs to have a short list of our beers and prices based on ratings and prices.
It needs to have a list of the latest ratings that users gave to the beers.
It needs to have a list of the latest discussions from our forums ( https://forums.craftbeercompare.com ).
It needs to have a list of 'trending' breweries.
It needs to offer users a way to enter their postcode so they can find beer shops in their area.
It needs to offer regular users to log in.
Sellers will be able to click a link which will take them to a separate login/sign up page.
It needs to have a section where we briefly advertise our services to our sellers, possibly with price plans.
Beer listing/browsing page (example: http://www.craftbeercompare.com/bro…country/gb. This is quite possibly the most crucial part of the whole website. In terms of functionality (NOT necessarily the design), you should draw inspiration from http://beer.findthebest.com
Navigation needs to be straightforward, filters should be easy to use and understand.
There should be some advertising space that doesn't get too much in the way.
Over the next few weeks we will add quite a few filters: country (only the ones represented by our current beer selection, currently 20 potentially growing up to 50+), brewery (thousands of them, also filtered by country), style (there are 140+ styles of beer), ratings (we currently focus on ratebeer.com ratings however we will introduce our own rating system). In terms of functionality (NOT in terms of overall design of the website), we think that http://beer.findthebest.com is a brilliant example of what we want. Unlike beer.findthebest.com we won't offer a beer comparison feature.
It should be possible for people to share their ratings on social media channels (primarily Twitter and Facebook).
Beer shop profile page (example: http://www.craftbeercompare.com/sel…-of-europe. Regular users will be able to click on a beer shop name and view their profile.
Brewery profile page (example: http://www.craftbeercompare.com/brewery/baladin. You can assume all breweries will have a logo. This should include the brewery's description, country, website, twitter and facebook details, the awards they won at competitions, and perhaps a short list of their beers.
Beer page (example: http://www.craftbeercompare.com/bee…ttle-750ml. Eventually all beers will have a picture. This should include the beer description, brewery, ABV, version (i.e. bottle 375ml), overall rating, a short list of ratings (with comments), plus a full list of prices.
