    "Find and rate the best beers in the whole world"


    Beer tasting is a true art. Expert tasters from around the world come together in Brewgene to give their opinions on the last beers they've tried. Then, thousands of users have the chance to get to know new types and get more info on their characteristics and the places where they can get them.


    You can find the Top 100 best beers in the world, so you know what's a hit right now, however exclusive they are. You can also get your hands on each beer's fact sheet, that contains the ingredients, the places it's available and beer recommendations that you might enjoy.


    When it comes to appearances, it's a really simple app. Don't expect much; just info. Also, in order to get your hands on all the functions, you first have to register.

    BrewGene is for beer lovers. With more than 100,000 beers on record, it’s easy to find and rate what you’re drinking. The more you rate, the better the recommendation engine will do at serving up new beers you’ll love. Share your favorite brews with Beer Buddies, view beer menus and check in to local bars and restaurants, and access tons of bar and brewer data. Here’s all the great stuff you get with BrewGene:


    The core of BrewGene is an easy-to-use and comprehensive beer tracking feature. Rate and tag what beers you're drinking, where you're having them, and how much you like them. You can also write detailed tasting notes, and create a 'watch list' of rare or favorite beers. Now, you'll never forget that great beer you tried last week, and you'll never accidentally order a bad beer twice.


    BrewGene will analyze your beer preferences and actually be able to predict whether or not you'll like a beer you've never tried before. You get a whole personalized list of new beers to try, and you'll never be disappointed by a random beer order again.


    BrewGene has maps and beer menus galore. Use our 'beer finder' to locate places to purchase any hard-to-find favorite beer. Each location has a beer menu that is updated based on user activity. Even better, menus are integrated with your rating/recommendation data so you know exactly which beers to order when you walk into a bar.


    If you're the type of person who likes to post pictures or talk about your favorite beers, we've hooked up BrewGene to Twitter, Facebook and Foursquare. We've also built a Beer Buddy system that allows you and your friends to easily see each other's tasting notes, beer activity, and offer personalized beer recommendations. For instance, if you need to get your buddy some beer for their birthday, you can search and see their favorite beers.

    Great app, has loads of beers and easy to get new beers/breweries added. Pretty accurate ratings prediction algorithm too.

    The new update lost a key function. Recommendations used to be in one place and easy to find, now it seems as though you first have to open a beer's profile to see what its level of recommendation might be. Also, the FAQ links don't seem to work. The new version does look good though.

    I'm looking at a beer off my beer buddies list and on the main page I see his rating, but when I load up a specific beer, the star rating shows mine instead of his. Just noticed a bug. Love the new app. Thank you for the update!!!
