I got an error:

After I created an new directory in the webapps-directory and moved the Beer-v1 directory into it, the form.html worked (now using http://localhost:8080/scwcd/Beer-v1/form.html).

What's with the scwcd folder?

If you want the context path to be Beer-v1, that folder must reside in webapps. Sticking extra folders in the middle only boofs things up.
