Kegerface: a Digital Tap List Interface for the Kegerator #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Kegerface – for all your beer stocking needs via raspberrypi.org:

Kegerface is a digital tap list display from SchrodingersDrunk, which you can read more about over on Reddit. It’s an interface for a Kegerator, hence the name. I had to look that up – a Kegerator is a device for dispensing draught beer in the home, involving all kinds of kit like a fridge and a tank full of carbon dioxide. In the picture below, it’s the thing with the spigots sticking out of it.

The back-end here is some PHP which interprets data from a shared Google spreadsheet. The whole thing runs off a Raspberry Pi that’s attached to the back of the display. All the information you need is here: the type of beer, the ABV, the hoppiness (scored out of three – that’s what the green glyphs represent), the maker, and, most importantly, how much you have left.

Links to source code and more here and while you’re at it, show off your home brew skills with the Adafruit “Brewing” Skill bagde, iron-on patch!
