Most beer apps are dreadful, because most beer apps are made by people who have recently drank a bunch of beer. Guard your dashboard against the digital scourge of useless suds software, and instead download one/several of these 12 brew-centric iPhone & Android apps, each of which actually enhances your drinking experience.
I took these applications for a test-drive over the course of several long, swill-filled weekends, and hereby report that any (or all!) are worthy of any beer-drinker's bandwidth. Crack a brew, turn on your WiFi, and get you some.
The price: Free
The pitch: It remembers the numbers so you don't have to.
Alright, Any Beer probably doesn't know any beer, but it does have about 7,700 ABVs logged in its searchable database, which was enough that I couldn't stump it in five minutes of moderate beer-geek effort. It's deadly simple, really -- all you get is the ABV, and an option to post that info to social media -- but if you're the type of guy/gal who seeks the most booze-bang for your beer-buck, this'll help. (It's also weirdly fun to quiz yourself with, if you're a moderate beer geek.)
