Got to love technology! With so many apps in the marketplace I thought I would go through and list my favorite beer-related apps. Just doing a bland beer search on your iPhone app store brings up thousands of hits. Let’s sort some of these out, here are my go to beer apps:
*Untappd* – the most popular app with most beer lovers. A fun app that ables you to socialize with your fellow beer “friends”. It’s also a great way to see who is drinking around your current area and also gives you a beer recommendation list based on your ratings. Feel free to add me: iabeerbaron
*TapHunter* – only one restaurant/brewery in Iowa City/Cedar Rapids area comes up on TapHunter and that is the Iowa Chop House. By using this app I know all their updated tap lists. This comes handy when traveling to bigger cities and I hope it catches on in the corridor.
*SipSnapp* – love the idea of this app as you can take pictures of a bar’s beer menu and then it provides ratings of those beers with their partner Ratebeer.com. So, if you are presented with a huge menu or see a bunch of beers that you’ve never heard of, snap a pic, upload and SipSnapp takes care of the rest.
**Those are the three I use the most. There are a ton of apps that allow check-ins, add wishlists, check abv, check history, etc. Beeradvocate app comes in handy as well but the 3 more unique are the ones I’ve listed. Chances are, by the time I publish this, another great app will have been created. What are favorite beer apps?
