My good friends and longtime MacStories contributors Don Southard and Chris Herbert have released BeerTab today, an iPhone app to keep tabs on your favorite beers, rate them, and share them.
I'm not a huge beer fan, but Don and Chris were kind enough to let me test their app, and I think they've done a great job. The interface is polished, simple, and it's got nice transitions (in addition to beer-inspired themes); you can add beers by taking a picture of their barcode and enter detailed descriptions and ratings for any beer you enjoyed. I like how you can publish a beer from your library as a webpage – that's a clever way to share with friends and it's nicely integrated with the app.
A lot of care and passion clearly went into making BeerTab, and it shows. It's $1.99 on the App Store, and you can read Don's background story here.
