Re: lcboapi.com and drinkvine.com

I'm not sure who created boozewatch.ca.. but it's not mine. On January 15th drinkvine.com will stop working and I plan to close the site down shortly after that. Creating and launching drinkvine was a really rewarding experience, and I hope in some small way it had an impact on making craft beer mor...

I sent out an email to all drinkvine subscribers today about recent updates on the site. Due to the stringent guidelines google has implemented about emails entering their system, there's a better than average chance it landed in your junk mail. If you see it there, please click the "Not Spam&q...

drinkvine Lists

Hopefully many of you saw the email come through today about a new feature at drinkvine, called lists. This is an idea which is almost two years in the making, has taken quite a bit of development time, and something I'm hopeful provides some value to each of you. drinkvine has been a labour of love...

So we're back up and running. It turns out that lcboapi.com was also affected, but Carsten is fast and got his crawler updated very quickly. drinkvine is now using lcboapi.com for some things and crawling the vintages site for others. There's bound to be some quirks as result of the changes. Please ...

Well, I always knew that one day the LCBO would update their website and it would cause drinkvine to puke. I actually expected it come a long time ago. I'll need to do some development and figure out what they've done and what's now possible. I can't get their new site to show me ANY product invento...

drinkvine can be slow to put up the releases. This is because its done by hand. An API really has no bearing on it. For the release pages I need all the information that Greg posts, plus I need pictures, supporting text, rate beer and beer advocate links, plus the scores from the two sites. Its then...

264184 / DDC Corne du Diable IPA / 341 / $2.90

I think this product number used to be a 4 pack.. Greg are you sure it's going back to singles? It's not like the LCBO to change the product format without changing the product number as well.
