It’s been about a month that I’ve released The Beer StashThe Beer Stash onto the public and I have to admit that I cannot be happier with the results! The user base has quadrupled and one of my visions has already been realized! We have some bottles hops on The Beer Stash! I’m also getting a steady stream of input from users (thank you, by the way!) and I even got my first support email today! This is going a lot better than I expected being so early on.

That’s not to say there hasn’t been some growing pain. I didn’t expect to hit my API limit on Untappd so soon but it happened a few times. Both awesome and painful at the same time. There is nothing more disheartening than seeing a server error when users are trying to search. Untappd contacted me (via Twitter) and offered to increase my API limit.

Let me just say one thing here: THANK YOU, UNTAPPD!

In case it wasn’t obvious (don’t you look at the bottom left of the footer?), Untappd has been my data provider for The Beer Stash. Simply put, no Untappd, no The Beer Stash. I’ve always been a huge fan of their service, from a user point of view. Now that I’m using Untappd as a developer, my love for them has only grown. It was very nice of them to help me with my API usage limit. This means one awesome thing for you - no more searching errors (for the time being, anyway).

I am very excited to see what this next month will bring. Unfortunately I won’t be able to dedicate much time to The Beer Stash development but that will only be for this next month or so. Then back to the grind!

As usual, please let me know if you have any ideas or problems. I am very happy to help!
