Beer was once archaic, earthy and barbarian. Not it’s trendy, coveted and — thanks to technology — digital.
“There’s an app for that,” has become synonymous with almost everything. Shopping, games, social media… it’s all there, encapsulated by a tiny, pretty little logo.
But, the simpler things in life, like beer, need apps too. Here are the best beer apps — apps that’ll point you in the right direction, keep you in the loop, and even broaden your drinking horizons.
Of course, if you want to stay in the physical realm, check out some of our favorite beer products below.
