Beerfinder: find beer by your location

After spending a couple projects working with Google Maps, I was interested in integrating another 3rd party API into it. I had also wanted to explore Foundation after reading about it being the “most advanced responsive framework”. Being a fan of beer, I decided to create a single page app that would show you the closest places to get beer, as well as, display those same places in an accordion style directory.

Skills and Technologies Applied
HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Foundation 3, SASS, jQuery, Geolocation, Google Maps, Yelp API, JSON, Ouath

Keep in mind this is not 100% complete. While working on this, Foundation 4 was released, so I plan on converting it over into the updated framework before completing the application.
