Brew is an open source library of interface components for ASP.NET which utilizes jQuery and jQuery UI.
If Brew looks familiar, that's for good reason. Brew is a heavily refactored fork of the Juice UI project.
What makes Brew different
Creating a project that's just a copy of another would be silly. Brew stands out in a few ways from it's cousin.
- Brew's extenders and controls are simpler and more intuitive to use.
- Brew's codebase is much smaller, making it easier to maintain and fix bugs faster.
- Brew is a spartan release, no extra fluff or unnecessary extras.
Brew contains all of the as-yet unreleased bug fixes from the JuiceUI master repository.

Why create Brew?
I had the pleasure to work on the original Juice UI project (check out the commit history) and while it was a great project, it was always limited in some aspects. Brew will enjoy a fast and frequent release cycle. Brew is also a different direction for it's cousin project, and everything that I had wanted to do with Juice. It's a significant departure and is unbound by the restrictions of it's cousin.
Brew requires the .NET Framework v4.5. You can download it here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30653 There are no plans to include support for earlier versions of .NET, that includes Sharepoint limitations.
