Industry: Food & Beverage

July 21, 2009 – Chicago, IL – Beer Universe, Inc. (Beer Universe or the “Company”), a social media / e-commerce website that revolutionizes the beer marketplace and community for beer enthusiasts of all ages, has announced the enhancement of its Beer Recommendation system. The Company believes that its new algorithm will allow users to truly get better recommendations of beers that they will want to try.

“Utilizing the principles of collaborative filtering, Beer Universe is able to accurately predict the variety of beers a user may enjoy,” said Angel Rivera, lead developer on the project. He continued “We firmly believe that our recommendation system is the best out there and will continue to make Beer Universe the best beer social network on the Internet.”

With the vast amount of beers available, it is often overwhelming for users to select new beers that they have not previously consumed. There are many different styles of beer that are available today, including:

•  Pilsners

•  Lagers

•  Bocks

•  Ales

•  Meads

Each of these categories can be broken down even further (IPA’s, Belgium Ales, Lights, Darks, etc). With over 3,000 beers in Beer Universe’s database – the Company alleviates the aimless search for good beer. By utilizing the ratings system on Beer Universe, users will be able to enhance their own recommendations – the more beers a user rates, the smarter the system gets and the better the recommendations become. Users at Beer Universe can either rate / review beers in order to have it incorporated into their preferences.

The Company encourages new users to utilize the system, as reviewing more beers leads to points, which are the incentive based system on Beer Universe. The more points members accrue the more free stuff that they possibly could earn, f r o m books based on beers to flat screen televisions.

Water Cooler Supplier Eden Springs Launches Oonline Hydration Calculator

Released on: June 24, 2009, 8:28 am
Author: Eden Springs UK
Industry: Food & Beverage

Eden Springs, the UK’s leading water cooler supplier, have just released a new hydration calculator that enables people to work out how much water they should be drinking. This online tool calculates your optimum daily water intake by taking into account a person’s gender, age, weight and exercise routine. The hydration calculator is available in the services section of the Eden Springs website.

It is commonly accepted that we all require a certain amount of water to maintain optimum health, energy and concentration. It is also reported that most people fall short of this daily requirement. What is less understood is exactly how much water we need.

Everyone is familiar with the ‘8 glasses a day’ or “7 glasses per day” arguments, but these rumours often understate our true requirements and don’t take into account the differences in a person’s age, weight and lifestyle. On the flip side, drinking too much water is not ideal either so it’s important for an individual to learn about their own requirements with some level of accuracy.

Damien Higgins, Marketing Manager at Eden Springs says “Eden Springs have released this calculator to give existing customers and website visitors a way of working out how many glasses of water they might need and it’s a reminder to us all that we should be refilling our glasses as we go about our day.”

“We’ve also just released a new range of low cost bottled water cooler rental plans, and this calculator helps people to work out how many bottles of water they might need each month for their home or office. Of course, we can also deliver additional bottles to their doorstep at short notice if they find they’re running short.”

The hydration calculator is a continuation of Eden Springs ‘Well-Being at Work’ philosophy, which encourages the consumption of water in the workplace to improve health, energy, focus and concentration.

Editors Notes

Eden Springs is a recognised European brand and the leading supplier of bottled and plumbed-in water coolers in the UK. Based in Glasgow, they supply and service 130,000 water coolers held by more than 80,000 customers across the country.

Tsunami Productions announces launch of Prince of Wine weekly TV show for fall 2009

SAN DIEGO, Ca (March 23,2009) – A weekly TV show about wine, food and the story behind wine is being launched for Fall 2009 release according to Melissa McComas, President of Maryland based Tsunami Productions, agent and manager for San Diego based POW Media the producer of the show. “We have been looking for a series about wine for some time and we are happy to have found a unique voice in Walid Romaya”. McComas said.

Hosted by Romaya, a San Diego wine critic and founder of the wine blog www.princeofwine.com, the show will showcase a journey of wine and food exploration where Romaya visits wineries and regions, telling the story of the wine from grape to bottle. “the fermentation basics of wine is the same, grape turns into wine, but each wine is so different and I have this platform to tell the story” said Romaya.

Wine is becoming a mainstream as people switch from hard liquor to wine. “Americans are drinking more wine than ever..for its health and social aspects” said McComas.“There are so many shows about food on TV, yet more and more Americans are hungry to know about wine, the Prince of Wine series will be the television viewer’s pocket-guide to everything wine”.

As a wine lover, collector and an amateur chef, Romaya has developed his wine palate and sense of observation by tasting thousands of wines over the years. “You could call me a wine nut, once I flew a thousand miles just to taste a rare bottle of wine” stated Romaya.

The show will feature segments where Romaya challenges the winemakers critiquing the wines and pairing them with food from guest chefs. Along the way Romaya will interact with the people who make the wines, such as the farmer, the harvest worker, and the bottle maker. “Whether it is the local supermarket $2 special or your vintage 1945 $10,000 Bordeaux, every bottle of wine has a story to tell” added Romaya. “ When I started drinking wine I was terrified by the wide range of grape varietals, the tastes, the vintages and what to look for…so that’s what got me interested in wine”.

The show will be filmed in established wine locations all over the world, from California to France as well as Argentina, Chile, South Africa and Australia. However, Romaya added “The show is not just about the famous wine regions, it’s also about small wineries in little towns in America and beyond. Did you know that there are some great wine gems in Missouri?”

“Discovering the undiscovered while guiding viewers on an entertaining adventure best describes this television series, Walid Romaya’s charisma and expertise set this program apart from the rest; we are delighted to introduce this program into the television marketplace” states McComas. The series will be introduced at the 2009 Cable Show in Washington DC beginning April 1, 2009

All point allocations to users are subject to change from time to time.
