Project Summary

I created this web application to allow my users to make personal beer selections based on their tastes. Using beer data from PUNK API, I made two separate forms — one for flavours and the other for food pairings. Using each form, users can get a beer recommended based on their choice.

Or, you may have thought, ‘Oh, thank god. It automatically printed only the important stuff without wasting my ink.’ This, instead, you’re highly likely to have experienced.
