I'm not sure what all the capabilities of the site will be but I think it may be a difficult undertaking and a lot of the information will have to come from the bars themselves. I'm guessing they will have to have some sort of arrangement where they notify the website every month or when they change taps etc.
Maybe the logistics of actually maintaining such a huge database and keeping it accurate will prove too difficult but maybe it will work and spread to more and more cities if he can get bars to participate and breweries (and whoever else) to advertise on the site and make it work.
I guess we'll see.
