Sorry to hear about your issues. A big part of any beta is trying to get the code to work on as many browsers and systems as possible. It sounds like the issues you experienced were not caused by the web server so throwing more hampsters at it won't fix anything.
What browser and OS were you using?

You weren't banned so it must have been a bug. I've seen that happen one other time. I'll look into it. Could you email me your browser and OS? [email protected]

Just the browser for now. It should work well enough on mobile in its current state.

I'll take a peek. I was planning on using either React or another virtual-DOM type framework. Also, I'm deathly allergic to PHP :)

I looked into slack as an option before I thought of making my own. One of the reasons I decided it probably wouldn't be a good fit, is the requirement that users have to be invited via email to join the channel. This would be a barrier of entry and could prevent people from hopping on at the last minute.

I love slack, and I use it everyday, but slack charges per user :(
But slack will play a big role as a plan out the app. /giphy ftw

I would be worried that if there was a mgoblog subreddit, it would move too much traffic off mgoblog and away from their ad revenue, thus requiring us to all hit that donate button more frequently :)
I do love me some reddit though.

The most important thing is to figure out what styles of beer you like. There are tons and tons of styles out there, (more than light, dark and amber).
The second step is to understand what makes them different. The major distinctions being hoppyness (how much hops falvor there is, often correlates to bitterness, but now always), maltyness(kinda a sweet/bready quality), and roasty-toastyness(the more roasted the deeper and more chocolatey/coffee like the flavor)
A good way to figure these main qualities out is buy finding beers that have a ton of one of them (but not both). IPAs, or India Pale Ales will represent hoppy, Ambers will represent malty, and guiness can represent roastyness.
Armed with all this knowledge you can begin to zero in on difference between beers, some IPAs may be more malty than others etc.
A couple quick tips:
Belgian beers are also weirdos. They use special Yeast that gives beers a very distinct flavor separate from the major difference I listed above. Furthermore, there are two main different compounds imparted by belgian yeast that taste very differently, so you might like one more than an other. Phenols make beer taste like peppery and grapefruity, and esthers kinda taste like bananas. Most belgian yeasts create a good mix of both of these and are a tad sour. Saisons however (one of my favs) are almost all phenols.
Last but not least, it doesn't make a HUGE difference on flavor IMO, but all beers are broken down into two categories, Lagers and Ales. Lagers ferment in cold condintions and produce a crisper cleaner flavor, where as Ales have a yeastier flavor.
I'm sure I'm missing a bunch of stuff but I'm just writing this all out as I think of it.

brimley mi in the up is awesome for that. super tiny town with small town log cabin bar on lake Superior. Indian casinos abound. it's also only 30 mins from Sault st Marie and 5 hours from Ann arbor.
all the bars and restaurants have snow mobile parking and trails are everywhere.
I've never been to taiquamenon falls in the winter, but I'm sure they have something going on, and that's only 40 mins away as well.

I do prefer wordpress to drupal, but my current favorite CMS is http://wagtail.io/
I also find that custom built solutions are often worth the extra effort upfront.

drupal is the most frustrating piece of software on the planet.. except for joomla of course :)
if the blog is ever interested in pursuing a change to something more... productive, I'd be happy to help out.
