Over the last couple of years, we have seen the emergence of craft beer transcend across a myriad of demographics. Now more than ever, there’s a bigger focus on venturing to places that have a better selection of unique alcohol.
Beer apps exist in the mobile market to enhance the drinking experience for people, but not every app is created equal. Here are three beer apps that you may want to consider checking out the next time you decide to go out for a cold one with friends.
Elixr is an app that shows users different kinds of beer. It’s like Facebook but instead of people uploading photos of cats, Elixr users upload photos of craft beer. It allows users to check out unique beers that have had limited releases, and points them to the exact location where they’re being served. Elixr doesn’t only deal with craft beers, it also caters to those who have a taste for wine and a slew of non-alcoholic beverages. If you’re up for drinking something unique other than the usual Coors Light or Beck’s, this app is for you.
A lot of pubs offer their version of “fine craft beer,” but not everything tastes delicious. That’s where Untappd comes in. It’s like Yelp, but instead of restaurants, Untappd users rate beers. Beers are rated by thousands of individual users who use the app, which is actually way better than just hearing the thoughts of one beer expert. Some of the most dedicated beer lovers keep a journal in the app and users may follow anyone whom they think has similar taste in beer.
It may put some beer lovers off at first with its $3.99 price tag, but BreweryMap is actually worth it. Think of it as having the treasure map that points to the holy grail of pubs. If you and your buddies are planning on going on a pub crawl, you’ll need a brewery road-trip itinerary and that’s what BreweryMap is all about. All you need to do is key in your location and this neat little app will activate its crowd-sourced map data to help you hit every brewery near the area in question.
Apps are becoming more and more relevant not only to gamers but to businesses, the education sector and even children. Smartphones were initially classified as devices used only for telecommunications and media consumption, but they’ve now evolved into something that everyone can use to complete their daily activities. Who would’ve thought that an innocent device for calling and gaming would now be used for tracking down places that serve craft beer, right? Gaming Realms PLC, the operator of the online bingo portal Free Bingo Hunter, implies that the mobile app industry is one of the most lucrative tech niches at the minute, and is expected to top its previous annual sales. So, with it being such a profitable market place, we should expect new innovations in the craft beer niche that will in turn help us find the most heavenly watering holes around to enjoy mouth-watering beers with our friends.
