BrewGene is for beer lovers. With more than 250,000 beers on record, it’s easy to find and rate what you’re drinking. The more you rate, the better the recommendation engine will do at serving up new beers you’ll love. Share your favorite brews with Beer Buddies, view beer menus and check in to local bars and restaurants, and access tons of bar and brewer data. Here’s all the great stuff you get with BrewGene:


The core of BrewGene is an easy-to-use and comprehensive beer tracking feature. Rate and tag what beers you're drinking, where you're having them, and how much you like them. You can also write detailed tasting notes, and create a 'watch list' of rare or favorite beers. Now, you'll never forget that great beer you tried last week, and you'll never accidentally order a bad beer twice.


BrewGene will analyze your beer preferences and actually be able to predict whether or not you'll like a beer you've never tried before. You get a whole personalized list of new beers to try, and you'll never be disappointed by a random beer order again.


BrewGene has maps and beer menus galore. Use our 'beer finder' to locate places to purchase any hard-to-find favorite beer. Each location has a beer menu that is updated based on user activity. Even better, menus are integrated with your rating/recommendation data so you know exactly which beers to order when you walk into a bar.


If you're the type of person who likes to post pictures or talk about your favorite beers, we've hooked up BrewGene to Twitter, Facebook and Foursquare. We've also built a Beer Buddy system that allows you and your friends to easily see each other's tasting notes, beer activity, and offer personalized beer recommendations. For instance, if you need to get your buddy some beer for their birthday, you can search and see their favorite beers.

Great for rating, tasting notes and keeping track

This app is great for making tasting notes and sharing your opinion and suggestions with others. The "Buddies" portion allows you to easily see if your friends also on the app have already tried a beer and what they think of it. It is also very helpful if you try lots of beers all the time and you can't remember all of them. If you go to a new place and think "have I had this beer before?" You can just check the app, and you'll know not only if you've had it before, but what you thought of it!

Your personal beer journal!

This app is great. I have been a member since 2013 and I just started using again after a year or so. I kind of miss the old layout but that doesn't change the fact this app does what it's meant to! Thank you so much. Looking through my old reviews brought me back to a different time and that's awesome. So many memories through my beer ratings. Cheers!

Very handy

This is a very easy way to keep track of all the beers you have tasted. You can see the average rating from other beer fans and check their comments. If you enter your rating and comments, you won't accidentally have a bad brew again.
UPDATE 19Aug2017:
The recent overhaul is fantastic. It is now easier than ever to review or gather information on all beers and breweries.
