Intro

 

In this blog we will be looking at statistics and information about happy hour prices in Reykjavík, Iceland.
I know the formatting is a bit off, I really should make my blog a bit more modern.

 

So, let’s just jump right into it.SkjámyndThe Reykjavík Grapevine is an Icelandic free alternative magazine written in English. They made an app, called appy hour.
……. a few years ago, seems that they made it in 2012 originally and I just learned about it now

 

This app has information about happy hours in Iceland, when they start, end, prices and more and when looking for cheap beer it is a great tool, sortable either by closest bar or cheapest happy hour offer.
Me seeing all this interesting data I couldn’t just use the app, I had to explore the data. Didn’t take long to find what server the app is contacting and downloading the JSON containing all the data. I just pulled one local copy to work with, I have no need to query this information, I’ll be using the app when seeking beer in the future.

 

 

Enough about the tech, let’s get to the good stuff, the numbers

 

Statistics

These statistics are based on the 105 entries the app uses.

    The only thing missing is what places have the chepeast, who has the longest etc?

      The idea behind this wasn’t to advertise some bar for having the cheapest beer, just to do some analysis of the data

      But sure, I’ll throw in the “winners” of each category tomorrow
