BreweryDB is a fully moderated, open library of breweries and beers from all around the world. The library is updated by our users. For breweries, we keep track of information such as location, website, phone numbers, descriptions, logos, etc. For beers, we keep track of style, coloring, bitterness, availability, labels and more. Donâ€™t see your favorite beer or brewery in BreweryDB? You can add it via our API or http://www.brewerydb.com.
Organizations provide Open Data to provide transparency, to enrich insights for researchers, and to enable developers to build useful civic, commercial and educational applications. The best place to find APIs for Open Data is in the ProgrammableWeb API directory. Here we present ten popular ones.
Father's Day weekend is again upon us. Growing up, my dad was always the hardest to shop for. I couldn't always tell what he would like and if he did like it, he had a tendency to buy it for himself. This week we'll look at some mashups that might help spark some ideas for those dads that are hard to get gifts for. The mashups include a little something for every dad out there including beer, hiking, golfing and movies. Read below for more details on each. ProgrammableWeb would like to wish a Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there.
Sometimes we forget what the real purpose of all this fancy technology is. And what is that? To make our real lives easier. Mashups often help with that, allowing us to do such simple things as find a good beer, our favorite music artists, where the streetcars are, or where a park is.
Are you part of a beer community and like to get information on various breweries in and around your neighbourhood and their beers? If yes, the Brewery DB is a great project that aims to build an open database of breweries and beers. You can contribute your data along with other beer afficinados but if you are a developer, you have access to all of this information via its Brewery DB API.
