Meet Happy Lager, Craft’s New Demo Site

Have you ever wished that there was an easy way to show off Craft to a friend, colleague, or client? We certainly have, and today we are making it possible with a brand new Craft demo site.

The website is for “Happy Lager", a fictitious digital agency that specializes in design, development, strategy, and other related services. We chose that for its practicality: many agencies have dipped their toes into Craft by redesigning their own websites with it, and this site should double as a helpful resource for that.

The site takes full advantage of several Craft features including section types, entry types, Matrix fields, relations, and assets, making it a great way to demonstrate or familiarize yourself with some of Craft's best features.

Best of all, you don't need to install the site yourself! That's right: to check out the site, all you have to do is go to demo.buildwithcraft.com, enter your name and email, and our server will get to work building out a personalized install of Happy Lager just for you. You'll receive an email within a couple minutes with a link to it, plus login credentials and some basic info about the site.

If you do want to install it yourself, you're welcome to do that as well as we've open-sourced the whole site on GitHub.

Happy Lager was designed by Dreamten Studios, and primarily developed by Jason Weaver. Hire these folks – they do good work!
