Baltimore Beer Week
- Visit the Site: www.baltimorebeerweek.com
- CMS: ExpressionEngine
This version of the site was a lot of fun for me as I did everything except the design. After handling all the IA I developed the site using the ExpressionEngine CMS. This was the first site I used ExpressionEngine on and I learned quite a bit about EE both good and bad.
The site allowed beer companies and bars to become sponsors by signing up online. After approval they could then log in to the site and add events to the database. Each event had relationships with up to 5 sponsors and 1 venue.
The site also allowed beer geeks to view events based on day, sponsors or venue location. There was a custom search which allowed searching on the previously mentioned criteria and key words, which for the most part were various beers listed in the event description.
The feedback I got on the site through beer week was very positive and overall I was happy with the results.
