This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
BeerFestList is the easy to use companion for pre-selecting and/or tracking the brews you drink while at your beer festival. BeerFestList provides the full list of breweries at the festival as well as the tasty brews they have brought with them.
Once you find and click on a participating festival, you simply scroll through the list of breweries and select the beers you would like to drink or have already drank. Special timed releases are highlighted in the list and includes the release time. After you have tasted different beers, you can give that beer a thumbs up or a thumbs down (or 5 star rating) as a reference for later.
All selected beers and ratings are saved to your “My List” that you can reference any time during or after the event. Show off what you’ve tried with your friends via social media share on the “My List” tab!

Poorly thought out
Although this app functions for what it needs to do, it lacks some basic features. Specifically the ability to add descriptions of the beers. Simply seeing that a brewery is bring 6 porters, and IPA, and a fruit beer is not helpful. Especially when some festivals have over 1000 beers to chose from.
As the only other review states, this app doesn't do really the only thing we need it to. Give an option to describe the beer beyond its name. I need to pick my top 15 out of 500 beers and I can't really do that on name alone.
Great for beerfests. See what's on offer and drink it. No need for more.
