This morning, we have released an update to BreweryDB.com, refocusing the site on our users and offering some easier ways for you to browse and submit data to BreweryDB! We’ve also given our entire service a new foundation, ensuring that BreweryDB will be available to you whenever you want it.
A few of the features that we have added:
We now have a full section dedicated to browsing data in BreweryDB. While you can still use our search page to find what you are looking for, you can now browse regional breweries, view a style guide, see apps created using BreweryDB’s API, and see our Brewers Guilds and their members. These are just a few “starter” ways to browse BreweryDB, with more to come soon!
Adding Data To BreweryDB
We have overhauled the way that you can contribute data to BreweryDB, giving you a nice step-by-step process to add your favorite brewery or beer. We’ve also made it easier to add events and brewers guilds to BreweryDB.
A New Home For Developers!
We love our developers! We want to make it easy for them to start developing for BreweryDB so we’ve given them a whole new home! We have integrated our old developer site with BreweryDB.com, providing API documentation, links to service libraries, and support resources.
WARNING! GEEK SPEAK AHEAD! Because we have been growing so fast, we have outgrown some of our resources. With this update, we have now dedicated instances for serving our API, hosting our database, and powering our search. We also have another web server to handle traffic to BreweryDB.com! In other words, we’ve beefed up our service…a lot. What does this mean to you? It means more reliability and more speed!
We’re really excited about these updates, and hope you enjoy them!
