CNET Top 5
Top 5 best beer appsUsually beer and phones shouldn't mix, but in this case they are the perfect pair.
These are the top five best beer apps. Guys, I did a lot of research for this episode last month. I tested out a bunch of apps, and went to a lot of bars because I love you guys. All of these apps are available for ios and android And by the way, let's get to it. At number 5. Barley, open up the app and you're able to snap a picture of a print menu. Barley will give you suggestions based on your tastes. You can customize what you like in the palate section. There's also a nearby feature that let's you see what beer's around you. And there's a search function if you just want more information on a particular beer. At number 4. BJCP Beer Styles This is a reference guide, BJCP stands for Beer Judge Certification Program, what's the difference between an American strong ale and a British strong ale, this app can tell you that, in fact it can teach you about 30 types of beer. And the difference between the strong ales. British has more specialty malt and/or sugar character than American strong ales, so said BJCP. And number three, RateBeer. Maybe you wanna pick from two stouts or IPAs, which should you get? I'm always a fan of asking for a taster of each, but you can rely on the good people at ratebeer, to give you a fair idea of what to expect. I've been using ratebeer the site and the app for a really long time now. And their judgment has not steered me wrong. A number beer menus. Finding out what beer is available wherever you are is great. The app also lets you keep track of upcoming events and whatever is being added to your favorite bars. Clicking on a beer on a menu will give you information about that beer. There's also a log feature if you wanna keep track of what you're having. And then number 1 is Untappd. Sure it's got a wierd spelling, but Untappd is a great app if you're a social drinker. And by social drinker I mean you're curious what your friends are having and you'd like to share too. Like many of the apps on this list, there's a nearby feature to see what's going on close to you. You can add things to your wish list to get alerted when that beer shows up. It's really cool. Now you can't go wrong with any of these apps so use one, use all five. Go for it. As for me, it might be time to try out some cocktail apps. Rest assured, I'm on it. I'm also Iyaz Akhtar. I'll see you on line. [MUSIC]
