Search by locale

Here's a new way to search Beer Me!: by geographical location.

The new search field lets you look up breweries near an address, city, state, whatever. Typing in the field presents you with a list of locations that match what you've typed.

Searching for a location

Clicking on one of the list items takes you to a page listing the twenty closest breweries to that location.

Breweries closest to that location

I'll be adding a map to that page shortly, and I'll also add this search function to the Beer Me! mobile app.

One thing about typing a location: if the place you're looking for doesn't show up as a partial match, keep typing. For example, lovely Danbury, Connecticut doesn't appear in the list until you get all the way to "danbur".
