Final project for General Assembly completed with one other developer in five days. This project was completed with the MEAN stack out of a passion for homebrewing and beer. Utilizing the BreweryDB, users are able to find beers and breweries. In the near future, we aim to incorporate a database for users to upload homebrew recipes and share with other users. For this project I focused on the back-end while serving as the Git Master while my partner focused on the front-end and specialty animations.
