Work/Brewery Buddy.

Brewery Buddy was a company created to solve productivity and logistics problems the breweries were facing. The team crafted a tooled, Brew Pro, that was easy to use. Brew Pro helped companies track inventory, managed the brewing process, and helped in the cellar.

We got our start on a fall weekend at Start-Up Weekend in 2014. I was a founder and CTO of the company. We closed Brewery Buddy's doors in Jan 2018 due to financial and growth issues.

Launch Pad

After Startup Weekend we knew the fledgling company needed funds to continue. That leads the team to apply for Alabama LaunchPad.

After months of work, we managed to build a business plan, an ad, and two pitch decks. This hard work leads to a cash prize. After Startup Weekend we knew the fledgling company needed funds to continue. That leads the team to apply for Alabama LaunchPad.

Auburn Design Group

Through a grant, we had the opportunity to work with Auburn's Design Group. They created user flow diagrams, design mocks, and conducted research for us. This gave the team a good foundation.

I was a technical resource for the group and helped manage the project in the design and product area.

BrewPro

BrewPro was in constant work. We refined the product daily as we learned more from brewers. To better solve brewing problems I learned to brew. This allowed me to better understand the problems the brewers were facing and allowed the team to design a better solution.

Technology

BrewPro was built on Meteor Js with React Js for the user interface. We use CricleCI to test, build and deliever the BrewPro application to Meteor Galaxy hosting. Galaxy took our application and hooked up all the pumpbling for us. We use a small Digital Ocean Dropplet to host a RabbitMQ service which applicatoin and services used for asyncrounus processes. BrewPro used MongoDB for its database service.
