The application contains only a handful of my beers included. This is just to minimize the application size. The whole collection of my beer labels is available here

You can use the import command (unzip the file before importing), as described in the tutorial, but ensure that you exported your data to a safe place. Afterwards, you can remove beer labels (and breweries if you choose so), and start your collection using existing countries (and breweries, eventually).

Countries form

Beer Labels are clasiffied on a country and brewery basis. The initial screen of the application shows country flags including the number of beers collected for each of them. A total number of collected beers is shown in the top right corner.


Application Menu

Application menu provides the following commands

Application menu
  • Import - Imports a database from a hard or one drive
  • Export - Exports the database to a hard or one drive
  • Clear - clears content of the database. User will be asked to choose to delete only beers, or also breweries

Editing Countries

Country related menu items are available in the country form, having the following commands:

Country menu
  • Add - Adding a new country
  • Delete - Deletes selected country (confirmation dialog is presented first)
  • Edit - goes to country edit mode, in which country code, name and flag image can be edited

If edit mode is selected, countries can be edited. Navigation to country related beer details is possible only if edit mode is not selected, which is the case by default.


Click on a single country in the countries form (outside of edit mode) will open a country specific beer page.
