Favorite Apps for Beer Lovers

untappdGot 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?

    I was excited about the NextGlass app but it just didn’t work for me. It would recommend things that we can’t get in Iowa. Although part of the problem is that I’ve probably drank everything that’s available in Iowa.

    I use to like Pintley but Untappd has taken it’s place.
