Description

Currently Double-Featured by APPLE on iTUNES under APP ESSENTIALS (more than 6 months) AND now also under Party Planner!

*** LA Times Review: "Explore American craft beers with this crafty app. I immediately looked up Allagash Tripel Reserve and found detailed info and tasting notes, including the recommended serving temp (40 to 50 degrees)... And it costs less than a few sips of beer."

*** Men's Health - Best Apps for Men - 25 Best iPhone Apps!

*** APPOLICIOUS: "This new beer app is beautifully designed and tells you everything you want to know about American crafted beers. From location to styles of beers look up that esoteric brew you're enjoying and become a true connoisseur!"

*** GIZMODO: "There's a lot of good craft beer out there. An overwhelming amount, really! Thankfully there's the stylish new Craft Beer App that has descriptions of different brews, pairings with various foods, and the ability to rate your favorites. App responsibly!"

*** LIQUIDA: "This must be guy’s weekend. First the Victoria’s Secret App for the iPad, now the Craft Beer for the iPhone . Craft Beer App gives users access to “substantive beer descriptions”, not to mention the “ability to rate beers, post notes, view community opinions on each beer and choose favorites”. Also included is food pairing recommendations as well as regional and heritage information. Just think of this as a beer encyclopedia, with benefits."

*** Special thank you to Z100 in NYC for the Friday Sep 8 morning plug.

Customer Reviews

Really Enjoying this App!

When the craft beer app appeared in the iTunes store, I immediately downloaded it. As a person who enjoys great beers I was excited to see all the information they provided. When I went to find our local brewery I was dismayed that it was not listed. I emailed them and within less than 24 hours I received a response. They let me know they were adding new beers and that with the information I provided they would look into adding the St. George Brewing Company as well. The app may not be perfected, but it's nice to see that their customer service is so accommodating. That's a rare commodity these days.

That was my review for Version 1.0. Version 2.0 is an out of the ballpark home run. And they have added St. George beers! Also, they reached out to me personally to let me know the app was updated and I even got a "hope you have a great summer" comment. Personal. Welcoming. Smart. I like it.

Still growing

I downloaded this app with the intention of getting some ideas for new craft beers to try. Sadly, it was missing some of the key beers that I'm a fan of, so I emailed the company and they were very responsive. Cataloging and describing the incredibly vast amount of craft beers in the US is a daunting task, but they're still hard at work trying to build out their database.

The artwork is still legacy (read: no retina support yet)--not a killer, but enough to detract from the otherwise edgy yet refined aesthetic. I like the color palette, and I like the overall UI, but it just needs some updating.

Overall, great stuff, looking forward to even more!

I want to like it, but...

Explore feature is very good, with many ways to browse and find new microbrews - Search feature is much too specific (for my taste) and will not give you any hits in some cases unless you are exact (for ex: searching for "cigar city" yields no results, unless you search for "cigar city brewing") - also - I was initially thrilled to find the Craft Beer Near Me feature (which should be easier to access) except it is inaccurate in some cases and had to use a separate mapping app to get the accurate address of the store

still, a decent app for the beer enthusiast - hopefully these details will get worked out in the near future
