BeerAdvocate down...North Koreans again?

BeerAdvocate is down for the second time in a week. Last time was a Denial of Service attack, now the stated reason is emergency maintenance.

Is it North Korean beer geeks? The coincidence is too much to ignore!

Maybe a non barrel aged sub 10% lager broke the top 100 list and it crashed the site :)

Well they did just get their own beer. Maybe they didn't like their review? :)

One of the computer administrators I work with occasionally remarked that the severity of DDoS downtime is/was directly proportional to the inanity and/or banality of the site. Which was being used to explain the extended outage of the purportedly-anime-related-but-turned-amateur-porn-by-its-users 4chan daught org.

I might submit this as further evidence. Anyone check Maxim and/or Draft Magazine? Did PubCrawler get hit?
