Check out a short demo of Brewery Search here:

Get information on any brewery from your command line with the Brewery Search gem! Brewery Search allows you to search in any state, and even filter down to a specific city. Check it out at:


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'brewery_search'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install brewery_search


Type the following to get started:

$ brewery-search

A user will be greeted with a welcome screen. Follow the on-screen prompts to continue. Users will have the ability to search by state abbreviations.

A user will be presented with a list of all registered breweries in that state. A user can call

$ city 

to receive a prompt to filter by a specific city, otherwise they can select the number of any brewery for more information.

To navigate back to the state results, a user can enter:

$ relist

Additional commands from the menu include:

$ new search
$ exit

New search will bring the user back to the beginning to search for a different state. Exit will quit the program.

When viewing additional information for any brewery, a user will be able to do any of the following commands (if that information is made available) to either launch the corresponding page in the user's default browser, return to the menu, or exit the program:

$ website
$ facebook
$ twitter
$ instagram
$ menu
$ exit


After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run rake spec to run the tests. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in version.rb, and then run bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the .gem file to
