beers so far, here's the latest.

What's this all about then?

Somewhere along my beer drinking journey, I wanted to categorise or graph the flavours, to try and make sense of the varieties. I was originally going to do it as an Indesign layout, but static data is redundant by definition...

Created using the fantastic Leaflet open source mapping library, it's been a great challenge learning javascript to make it do something it wasn't quite made for! Next step is to build the database in a headless CMS like Contentful, but I have to get my head around data and queries first.

I'd love to turn this into the Pandora of beer, where you log in to rate beers and the data suggests beers liked by people with similar tastes. Icing on the cake would be to have referrer links (and maybe an ad or two) to a certain national liquor chain to make enough to pay for hosting and development.

Sound interesting?

I've taken it about as far as I can with my limited coding skills, so if you're a beer loving developer (or venture capitalist!) looking for a side project, . The beers are on me.
