And what better way to celebrate the culture of drinking delicious beer than to share how we can enhance that experience with technology. That’s right, from beer delivery to connecting with friends, there’s a beer app for just about everything. I must admit, here are a handful of apps that are not great–mostly because they seem to be made by someone who was intoxicated–but there are some apps that I found to be very useful.
BreweryMap helps you discover new breweries around you. The app is pretty up to date with new breweries in any location. The app is not free ($3.99), but definitely worth it if you’re visiting a new city and want to explore local breweries.
Don’t know what beer to order next? Next Glass gives personalized beer recommendations based on science and technology to predict how much you’ll enjoy any bottle. You set up your taste preferences, and by using objective chemical data to provide personal recommendations, you get an idea of what you can order next.
Beer drink should be a social activity, and Untappd helps beer lover connect with friends and share their favorite finds. Untappd is a social discovery and check-in network, where not only you find nearby craft beers and bars but also see which beers are trending.
Every Friday you can get beers delivered to your office, no need to even think about organizing anything. With Deskbeers you can sign up to their service and have beers delivered every week. The reason why this app did not make it is because it’s in UK and not available in U.S. yet.
