We do not yet have a logo, but Best Beer Online is the idea. Work with that. I'm not sure if I want the beer pages to be posts or pages (does it make a difference?). Each beer page must have space for the photo of the beer (if available), the beer title, brewery, it's rating, beer style, description, and buy now button. The comments will function like reviews from the users discussing that beer. Include in your design what a sample beer page would look like.
In addition to the beer pages/posts, I want to able to write news and actually have the site function like a real blog where I can write posts such as new site functionality, new beer available, general beer news, etc. These posts will appear as recent posts by me in the sidebar of the home page and also contained in the categories.
Home page: I want a search for specific beer in addition to a search bar for the entire site. The beer search bar must be easily accessible. I want space for joining our email list (must be viewable before scrolling), as well as Twitter and FB links, top 10 rated beers, recent reviews/comments, etc.
Feel free to be creative; as you don't need to strictly follow my guidelines. I am open to innovation.
More may be added later.
