  • Cool

    by infinitig

    Nice

  • 5 star concept, good app

    by MrBozipper

    It may need a little work, but this is a really cool idea

  • Styles meaning

    by tico13ba

    Besides the couple of flaws in the 2 previews comments (in which I agree) I would like it if you could explain what each beer style differs on Thanks

  • good

    by jAmEs the CyyyR

    I like beers.That's awesome!

  • Not Adequate

    by Aikimatt

    Has limited beer selection, seems like it was developed in collaboration with a major beer company. If you like interesting and unique beers then don't waste memory space on this. I bought Beer Buddy instead and it was worth the few bucks.

  • Don't bother!

    by Slm100

    Horrible app. Soooo slow and information is limited. If you want to know about bud and Coors lite this is the app for you. If you are after craft and special beers....forget it. I deleted it after 5 minutes.

  • Terrible

    by Yahahooey

    If I could rate less than one star, I would. Macro brew whoredom at its finest. Very few micro/craft/specialty brews.

  • Useless

    by Bottle browser

    You can get more information from the label on the bottle! Worst app ever! Wasted 20 minutes of my life giving it a fair chance and I'll never get it back!

  • Not worth the time

    by Beer mite

    Besides not having half the beers I'm used to drinking, the favorite list won't even save the ones you have tried to save! Every time i get back to my favorite list it says i enjoy Budweiser???? Ive taken it off numerous times!!! Can't anyone get this right!!! This app is not worth the time

  • Too bad

    by Lovap

    It doesnt have almost none of the european beers, just those like world famous..

  • Please

    by MissSerket

    BRING BACK THE IPET SERIES!! PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I MISS MY PETS AND FRIENDS, I WILL PAY AND CHANGE THE RATING :( !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Disappointed

    by snwshrddr

    Not a whole lot of info at all. Quite useless. I'm gonna delete this app now.

  • Useless!

    by HomebrewerAl

    This app has virtually no useful information. I don't trust the rating... most reviews give 1 or 2 stars, but itunes lists it as having 3 stars... what? If you are completely new to craft beers and happen to be at a beer bar that doesn't list the style (unlikely), then this app might be useful, if the search feature worked... it didn't for Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, Lagunitas... in fact it didn't work for any beer. It only tells you the style, brewery (but not the city), type of brewery, package, correct glass, serving temp, whether it's pasteurized (missing on about half), alcohol content (missing on many), year introduced (missing on quite a few) and food pairings. No ratings, nothing about the aroma, flavor, body, etc. Also, it's seriously out-of-date: many defunct breweries and their beers listed, many breweries missing. There are 27 beers with the name "India Pale Ale" and 13 more titled "IPA" and you have to click on them to discover the brewery. I have deleted only four apps in the last year... this is one of them.

  • Wow - very limited data

    by Allenjbj

    Don't waste your time

  • Too Ambitious

    by Slarz58

    Hard to navigate. Too many beers hard to find the brewer with the name. Can't sort ratings. Blah!

  • Half-arsed

    by Smaeg

    Great idea, poorly executed. Loads of generic information repeated numerous times with a multitude of gaps. Largely worthless

  • Avoid

    by Rnrguy

    Nothing here to see. Bad app. Slow, missing tons, no pics, app hiccups often.

  • Not Worth It

    by inuit steve

    Freezes frequently and takes too long to load menus and screens (10-20 seconds). Active search is slow and causes crashes. UI is horrible and confusing to organize and utilize. Very generic style and no customization available. Look elsewhere. Passable library of beer but many common brands missing.

  • decent database....if you have the time

    by reckolans

    there are plenty of beers in the list, but poor info and deplorable performance. runs like a dial up website from 1995. I'd look elsewhere.

  • Good concept, bad execution

    by Psuphilly22

    Can't add beers it's missing (and there's a lot) and the database is a mess. Plus the fact that Budweiser is listed as a default favorite makes me question the credibility right off the bat. Slow, too.

  • Sluggish performance, poor database

    by SDDale

    Annoyingly slow. And the list doesn't have descriptions of any of the beers I looked up. I deleted it.

  • AB's Lame App

    by eZo

    Feels like AB made this app, considering all their beers are "favorites" when it loads. The other beers are limited and missing some incredibly good beers. Regardless, the data is too basic to help. There is no description or review.

  • Missing

    by JD Klaers

    Missing some very good beers, and no way to add them.

  • What's the point?

    by Z0idbergmd

    Why have an app that lists a random amount of beer. I want to know the details of it.

  • In Bev app

    by Bottletree

    Some very significant microbreweries are missing yet in In Bev products are right there on the front screen. Who needs to go to an app like this to go find Budweiser. Give me a break.

  • You don't want this...

    by EMETFORU

    You want BeerGene, blows this app away

  • Takes forever!

    by James Lilly

    I thought this would be good to just learn a little more about certain beer, but it takes so long to load anything I haven't got the time to try. No matter how great the app, if it doesn't load it's worthless.

  • Awful

    by Pinchyourself

    At first seems like a thorough list but it isn't. Lots missing and very slow. Downloaded and deleted

  • Where's my beer!?!

    by benjoe85

    Even though this seems to be a very extensive list of beers, I couldn't find a few of my favorites (none of which are obscure brands either). For example: Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA, Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy, Summer Honey Wheat Ale, Pale Moon, etc.

  • Ehhh....

    by Brewy McBrewington

    As others have said, this app started with a good idea, but needs a lot of work. There are a lot of obscure beers (good), but I've noticed it's difficult to find even some better known microbrews here in the US (bad). It's a great tool for pairing with food (good), but it would be better if it allowed user ratings. One thing that REALLY irks me about this app is that you can't sort beers by brewery - it would be much more user friendly if you could see all associated beers for each maker. I rarely use this app - better to just use Beer Advocate online.

  • Wot no ABV?

    by MagicBadger

    Didn't do what I wanted - ABV missing for everything I looked at. I'm a Brit in the US and am amazed that there are all those health warnings on your beer bottles yet no clue about how much alcohol is actually in them! Add ABV figures to all the beers in your database in it would be worth a 4 star review - make the search process faster for 5.

  • Good idea poor follow through

    by Shg5786

    This has the potential to be an awesome app. But, despite the huge database many major microbrews are completely missing, and the long lag time for searching is tedious and annoying at best. Two stars is very generous and mainly for the idea. Not a keeper.

  • Data search super slow

    by boltron98

    The database is large, but type one letter and it bogs down searching for every beer with that letter. Stupid!! Slow!! And don't make a typo or your screwed. And you can't add any simple notes or rating when you make something a favorite.

  • Basic

    by RicanMD

    Nice thought. Needs work on database!

  • AB front

    by Zippo1972

    All of your favorite beers made by AB? "No results found" for any of the best craft breweries? Yes sir! Junk...

  • A start......

    by Bacchus88

    I've only used it for a few minutes but it's slow and glitchy and I searched for 1 beer and a very popular one at that (Smithwick's) Which it didn't find in the database. It's a pretty good start but needs refinement.

  • Beer enthusiast

    by Phishagonia

    Awful app. Certainly not an extensive database and it crashes all the time. back to the drawing board, folks.

  • Crashing

    by Stonedwriter

    Won't open WTF !!!

  • Meh

    by Sadie Sandwhich

    Doesn't have good local beers or micro brewery selection.

  • Sub-par...there's better apps

    by Gil-mar

    Sorry, this app is too simple. Doesn't allow for you to add a beer to database; doesn't allow you to track if you've tried a beer or only want to try a beer. Other better app that is for free: beer chooser. Other apps that are worth looking at: Pintley; Beer!

  • Good but lacking

    by Stargaz3r

    This app could be a fantastic app if it incorporated a few more features: - A way to mark the beers tasted - Ability to take own notes on the beer - A picture of the label of the beers That would be a 5-star app!

  • Slow, provides limited info

    by Andrew Spiehler

    This app is extremely slow when searching for a beer name. It doesn't provide a way to search by the name of the brewery, nor does it show the name of the brewery in the results list, thus providing no way to differentiate among beers with same name: try searching for "imperial Russian stout".

  • This could be a winner

    by Z147bta

    Too bad. I am running iPhone 4 with latest os and when I search it freezes for about 5 seconds on first letter input. Missing beers bit that would be ok of users could input or suggest brands. So close . . .

  • Many Missing Beers

    by PhillyArch

    I often try to look up a beer only to find that it is not on the app - some are a little obscure, but some are not so obscure. Also when you do find the beer you are looking for there are often many duplicates (and they are sometimes missing information) - I wonder if they are counting all the duplicates when they say 7800 beer brands...? It works OK for a free app, but I probably wouldn't pay for it..

  • What happened?

    by mhowie

    Doesn't work any longer. Useless.

  • Jumping on band wagon

    by Doc Beech

    I really enjoyed the app- until I updated. Now it won't do anything after it is activated. I'm out of ideas- someone do something!

  • Doesn't work anymore

    by V_W

    Was good before last update

  • Crashes after update

    by Ltraver

    Updated on my 3G, Get opening screen then back to springboard FIX IT

  • App won't load

    by maang21

    It was a 3 star before. Decent info but very incomplete. Now, after the update, it will not open on my 3G. Crashes everytime.

  • Crash loving update

    by ErikTheAXE

    Great app till the latest update. Now it's useless.
