An easy to read, simple representation of a brew recipe in JSON.


At time of writing, there is only one standard way of saving a beer recipe, and it is not the prettiest thing in the world. Lots of angular brackets and such.

Beer.json is intended to do one thing, and one thing only. Represent a recipe for a single brew.


  • One file = one recipe.
  • Only relevant info. If you need to know your caryophyllene levels when pitching your hops, you might be better off looking at the angle-bracket solution.


Currently working on the first, beerxml -> beerjson converter. It's written with node. Use it like this:

npm install -g beerjson
bxml2bjson sweet-recipe.json
