Malacon: FTFA: CapSnap, is to be "the Pinterest of beer." You rate beers on a scale of one to five, accumulating a collection of what you like, what you love and what you'll never drink again.So, it's Untappd?Because it sounds like they just remade Untappd.
Unoriginal_Username: Just out of curiosity.How are the tags for stories handled?I can't see how this app deals with children's rights.
Skwrl: Heady Topper
TofuTheAlmighty: Skwrl: Heady TopperStunningly overrated. Good but nowhere near #1.
Persnickety: In before the parade of obscure local beers that nobody's heard of.
Capo Del Bandito: Hmm...can we get a 'recommendations' app? Like what Amazon and Netflix have?"If you liked Franziskaner, you should try X" that sorta thing.
WinoRhino: TofuTheAlmighty: Skwrl: Heady TopperStunningly overrated. Good but nowhere near #1.Ah yes, the celebrity IPA of choice lately. Soon, people will discover Marshall Wharf's "Can't Dog" and their other IPA "Wet Dog" from Maine and those will be the big thing. Because like Topper, they're only sold at the brewery and in the immediate surrounding area. As we all know, limited availability is the BEST way to judge a beer.
Capo Del Bandito: "If you liked Franziskaner, you should try X" that sorta thing.
Skwrl: Sorry, when did I say (lack of) availability to others is why I like it? Or that it was the best beer or whatever. I liked to an article so people could read about it.And as for availability, I have a ski house in Vermont, so I'm up most weekends, except during the peak of summer. I have a few cases of it sitting in the cellar, so availability isn't an issue. Sorry if you don't like something because other people do.
Krymson Tyde: Back in college I consumed many exotic brews including Meister Bräu, Drummond Brothers, Schaefer, King Cobra, and Old Milwaukee too name just a few. However, I wouldn't recommend these as they require a particularly refined palate.

bark_atda_moon: On of the bars I frequent keeps track of which beers I have tried. My problem is, I can't remember which ones were good, decent, or bad. I know to stay away from anything made by Saranac.
WinoRhino: Capo Del Bandito: "If you liked Franziskaner, you should try X" that sorta thing.A friend and I are seriously looking into developing an app to do just this. He is a huge wine fan, and I'm on the beer side. What we planned to do was an app that would know which store you were in (or close to) and make recommendations. For example, based on your previous likes and dislikes it would say "You like Aventinus? You should try X. It can be purchased locally at these stores." The locations would be based on your GPS, as well as what distributors and retail stores were paying for a subscription with our service. It would also notify the stores what beers people were looking for that they did not have in stock. If enough people were looking for beer X, it would recommend to the store that they start to stock it. Apparently there is already a patent on this type of thing, or another app in development that plans to do it, so we're unsure if we can / will go through with it at this point.
asciibaron: the app already exists, it's called "Notes"
robodog: Pintley does this and even recommends free tastings near you for recommendations =)
Krymson Tyde: Did you ever go that route?
Capo Del Bandito: ...and now I want more Aventinus
