Title: Ask the Experts - Patrick Rue
Post by: denny on August 03, 2011, 03:43:22 PM
Patrick Rue started homebrewing in 2003 during his first year of law school, which ignited a passion for great beer and the creative process of brewing. He followed his passion and founded The Bruery, which began production in 2008. Celebrating it's third year in business, Patrick's role at The Bruery has changed from doing just about everything to managing a company of 35 talented individuals. Recent accomplishments include opening The Bruery Provisions, a craft beer, wine and cheese store/tasting room in Old Towne Orange. The Bruery is distributed in 21 states and 4 countries. The Bruery strives to be a leading creative force in the craft brewing world.  From now until Aug. 14, Patrick will be taking questions on how a homebrewer goes about opening a brewery and moving into the world of commercial brewing.  If you'd like to ask him a question, please email it to AskTheExperts@brewersassociation.org .  Answers will be posted sometime around Aug. 22-24st.

I hope very soon.  I've had some personal issues that have prevented me from following up in this like I should.  I'll get back on top of things next week.

So, don't take this as me being pushy or anything, but, should I give up hope on this? Was really looking forward to it since I had questions, myself.

I can understand the family stuff, though. Have three relatives who're on their way out.

Am I the only one unable to access this?  it keeps telling me to login, then giving me a 500 error when I click the button.  Frustrating . . .

I had the same problem

I had a problem also. Emailed The AHA and they had me reenter password and no problems. Good info.

Yep, same here.  I think it has to do with the new database the AHA is using.

I still can't access it even after an email and a changed password.  Will try again later.

I can't even get that far, it never asks for my email and password.  I hit the login button and it gives me a 500 error. :-\

Even though it gave me the 500, it did log me in.  Great Q&A!!!!
Title: Re: Ask the Experts - Patrick Rue
Post by: tschmidlin on September 22, 2011, 05:46:44 PM
Not for me.  It goes 500, then I chop out the first part of the url so I'm just left with:
http://www.homebrewersassociation.org/pages/lets-brew/ask-the-experts/patrick-rue

And then it takes me right to the login page again.

Post by: denny on September 22, 2011, 05:58:03 PM
Try logging in on the home page of the AHA website, in the upper left corner.  In the meantime, I'm gonna see if I can get somebody from the AHA to take a look at this thread.
Title: Re: Ask the Experts - Patrick Rue
Post by: tschmidlin on September 22, 2011, 06:00:04 PM
Yeah, I tried that too and it just bounces me back to the home page, where it still says login in the top left corner.

I asked Ian from the IT staff to check on this thread.

Thanks.  I even tried clearing all of my cookies.  I can login here, but not at the AHA site, same thing, it just bounces me back to the home page.  Firefox 3.6.22 (and no, I won't upgrade until they fix the problem with recognizing my fingerprint reader).
Title: Re: Ask the Experts - Patrick Rue
Post by: denny on September 22, 2011, 06:14:18 PM
I ended up having to create a new login account with a different email addy.
Title: Re: Ask the Experts - Patrick Rue
Post by: tschmidlin on September 22, 2011, 06:31:30 PM
Hmm, maybe that's the problem.  I've got multiple accounts (AHA, BA, recipes), but all on the same address.  Still, you would think it would acknowledge that I'm logged in, even if it doesn't think my login gets me access to the content.  Or if it doesn't acknowledge I'm logged in, it should let me do so.

No problems with the forum or the BA site, just the homepage of the AHA site.

From Ian...

"I sent that thread along to our web and IT departments. It sounds like they were aware of the problem and are working on getting it fixed. As soon as they get it fixed, Cindy said she'll make a post on the thread."

I just to the answers.  I first logged into the site at the main page as suggested by Denny.
