As you may be able to imagine, this allowed me to get quite a few "new" badges that were not really new. They were just higher levels.
Land of the Free (Level 50): I drink almost exclusively American beers. This badge rewards me for doing that. It would be interesting to know what level I would be at if untappd increased the leveling an infinite number. The beer that pushed me from 10 to 50 was Lil' Dirty Blonde by Locavore Beer Works, which is my new most local brewery (other than SheppyBrew of course).
Photogenic Brew (Level 50): I almost always include a photo with my check-ins to untappd, so it is no surprise that I jumped from level 10 to level 50 on this one either. Again, I am sure I would have been much higher has untappd decided to increase the leveling maximum by even more.
The beer that pushed me from 10 to 50 was the same Lil' Dirty Blonde by Locavore Beer Works.
Some more badges that I got thanks to the new leveling maximum were:
I Believe in IPA! (Level 32, 33, 34): As you can probably guess, drinking IPA's got me this badge. The IPA that got me to level 34 was Celebration Ale by Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.
Heavy Weight (Level 14, 15, 16, 17): 85 different "dark" beers. The one that pushed me over the level 17 mark was Russian Imperial Stout " the Envoy" by Crazy Mountain Brewing Company .
Pale as the Moon (Level 14, 15, 16): I drank 80 different Pale Ales for level 16 of this badge. The one that got me to 16 was 5th Season Pale Locavore Beer Works, which is a fantastic pale ale, by the way.
New Brew Thursday (Level 11): I had forgotten about this one. It was one of the first ones that I maximized my levels. To get this badge, you have to drink a new beer on 3 Thursdays in a 30 day period, so it takes a bit more planning than your typical badge. The beer that got me to Level 11 was Gnaughty Gnome English Coffee Stout.
I still have more new badges, but this covers all those that I've gotten because of the new policy. Stay tuned for more at Sheppy's Blog: Untappd.
As I type this, I currently have 327 untappd badges (untappd counts each level as a separate badge) and have checked in 901 unique beers. That seems like a lot of beer, although I some of my untappd "friends" have a bunch more than I do.
