BreweryDB API

This is a simple wrapper around the BreweryDB API packaged as a ruby gem.

In Rails, you can configure it with initializer by creating a file named config/initializers/brewerydb.rb

BreweryDb.configure do |config|
  config.apikey = 'YOUR_API_KEY'
end

Remember: Good People Drink Good Beer!

Examples

You can fetch beers:

response = BreweryDb.beers

response.beer.each do |beer|
  puts "#{beer.id}: #{beer.name}"
end if response.beer

puts response.pages.page
puts response.pages.total

Get a list of beers on a specific page:

response = BreweryDb.beers(:page => 10, :metadata => true) 
response.beer.each do |beer|
  puts "#{beer.id}: #{beer.name}"
end if response.beer

Searching for Beers

results = BreweryDb.search(:q => 'stone')
results.result.each do |result|
  puts "#{result.id}: #{result.name} (#{result['type']})"
end if results.result #check if there is a result before looping

puts "Page: #{results.pages.page}"
puts "Total: #{results.pages.total}"

Get a specific beer or brewery by id:

response = BreweryDb.beer(1196)
puts response.name

response = BreweryDb.brewery(1000)
puts response.name

Get all the breweries around Washington DC:

response = BreweryDb.breweries(:geo => 1,
                               :lat => 38.875532,
                               :lng => -77.007294,
                               :radius => 30,
                               :units => 'm')
response.brewery.each do |brewery|
  puts brewery.name
end if response.brewery

puts response.pages.page
puts response.pages.total

Categories, Styles and Glassware work as well.
