Wordpress Beer Theme

Beer Theme for Wordpress

I have just released my Wordpress theme “Beer”. The beer theme uses widgets and is compatible with Wordpress version 2.3 and above. It has not been tested on earlier version, but it should work just fine on Wordpress versions 2.1 and above. If you have any bugs or feature requests please let me know by commenting below. You can view the theme in action over at Team Sea Donkey. You can download the zip file here. Installation is simple. Just unzip the downloaded file and upload the beer folder to your wp-content/themes directory. After you have done this log into your blog and select Presentation then select Themes. Now click on the Beer theme, pretty simple right?
