Brewery Master is a responsive Node.js & AngularJS based application built & deployed on IBM Bluemix. The foundation of the app leverages IBM Watson cognitive services including Watson Personality Insights & Watson Question & Answer (Q&A), and also uses 3rd party API's including BreweryDB, Twitter and Google Maps. Brewery Master uses Watson Personality Insights to analyze tweets (originating from and/or about a brewery) and presents a psychographic vibe about that brewery below its list of beers. Watson Q&A helps answer questions about beer and beer related topics. This app answers these questions from a custom corpus that was built from content about beer from Wikipedia, different breweries, and various other sources. Using a custom corpus is not currently supported by the Beta version of the Watson Q&A service, but we decided to share this app as a great preview of some of the functionality that will be supported in the future.
For a detailed look into application into how this app works, the team behind Brewery Master put together the following YouTube video:
