Want to try a new beer, but don't want to waste money on an unpleasant surprise-in-a-bottle? Don't want to default to Guiness during your next bar outing?
With "Beer etc" you can quickly look up information on bottled beers, including their ratings from one of the largest beer databases, and save your own impressions in a flexible format.
The app comes with a database, so it works offline, saving you money. When online, your notes can be optionally backed up on a server and retrieved at any time. This is your data!
* Database with 74670 beers
* Search-as-you-type lookup by name or brewery
* Search by location of the brewery
* Personal annotations with a 1-5 rating, tags, and text
* Optionally, backed up annotations available from an RSS feed
What's New in Version 1.2
Improved installation process. Fixed bugs in UI.
Pretty Good Database
I like this. I wanted an application where I could make notes on beers and remember ones I want to try (like the top beers on Beer Advocate). All the other apps I looked at did not seem to have this simple functionality (I admit I was looking for free apps). This could be better, but it is a good start. The database is offline and absolutely huge. Every beer I searched for showed up. I would like to see an ability to log in just in case I lose my data. I would also like to see the ability to choose Beer Advocate as the website for further reviews. These are minor details that keep me from giving it 5 stars. Good work!
One of the few apps that can keep up with taking notes during a tasting. Simple interface, useful rating and notes system. Just one problem - no database updates! Hope the app publishers are still out there somewhere, and might fill that gap.
Wish you could add beers to the database
Solid app. Nice, simple, clean interface. The only thing that keeps it from a 5 star rating is the inability to add beers. Though the database is huge, there are still a lot of beers not included (e.g. Sly Fox).
