Is the beer lover in your life tired of swimming through a sea of beer apps, just to get the results he or she needs, on the spot? Well, they can stop drowning in their vat of beer apps, The Beer Expert App is now available.

Unlike any other beer-information app on the market, The Beer Expert draws from a database of hundreds of thousands of beers – almost every beer on the planet.

For either regular beer lovers, or true beer aficionados, the inability to recognize the beer that’s in front of you, now, is extremely frustrating. But imagine being able to walk into any package store, grocery, brewpub, or bar, having a look at the beer selection before you and immediately having access to every beer’s vital information.

this app provides that exact information and more. With a burgeoning and ever-growing beer market, and other folks producing beer apps, we had to create ours to be bigger, better, more robust and simply more useful than any other available. And this app will be attractive to anyone who enjoys beer, not only the "beer geeks".

By either taking a picture of the beer’s upc code, typing in its name, or speaking it into your phone, The Beer Expert will immediately provide the user with the beer’s commercial description, a.b.v., style and several user reviews, along with a picture.

And once the user has sampled the beer, if they disagree with one of the provided reviews, they can give it a “thumbs down". Likewise, they can give great reviews a “thumbs up.”

The secret to The Beer Expert’s comprehensiveness is it bringing together two of the beer world’s greatest forces;
The Beer Sommelier® and RateBeer.com, which is arguably the largest beer database in the world. This combination allows for simply the most comprehensive, accurate and complete listing of beers available in the world…over 300,000 beers at the app’s disposal.

** Please keep in mind that this app is meant for educational/informational purposes ONLY. It's meant to tell you about the beer in front of you now, that you may purchase, but know nothing about. It does NOT have the functionality for note taking...this is NOT a beer rating app.**

Thanks!

Any chances of updating it to support qHD devices? It would be nice to have the graphics fill the screen.

Great app, but you can't search on the nordic letters æøå. Example Ægir Tors Hammer from Ægib bryggeri, you have to just search for Tors Hammer. This beer is ok, but if you want to find Ægir India Pale Ale, it is a bit difficult to just search for India Pale ale, because it is too many hits.

overall I like the application and it's useful for finding out about beers in the store. I really wish that we could put in our own reviews of the beers

The newest version, 1.1, fixes exactly the issues Ninja is talking about in his review. There is now a tabbed layout, and the app is far friendlier to smaller screens, etc. If you've already bought it, be sure to get the update, otherwise, give it a try!

Alot of data. I mean ALOT. All the beer data you could ever need. That's the good part. Sadly, the UI/Usability is extremely poor. If your screen is less than 4.3", you won't have much fun with this app. Remember the 90's when web pages were in frames, with multiple scrollable windows? This app will cause you to flash back to that era. I don't know about you, but I am not too keen on scrolling in multiple windows on one screen on my phone. A tabbed approach would've been the way to go (no-brainer, actually). This seriously has the potential to be a 5 star app, but until their dev team realizes that they are not designers, it'll never happen. Development and Designing are two different things. They seemed to have gotten the first part down, maybe they'll get the rest in a future update. I sure hope so. ***UPDATE: Barcode scanner doesn't seem to work. At least it didn't on the bottle of Stella Artois that I scanned. Got a message saying something to the effect of the data was not present in their database.

great app but... great app but could us a few more features like beer rated count and sorting ability, a way to not lose your info if you have to reinstall or new phone.

Meh Scan feature is cool. Bottom line though, is this app wasn't easy enough to use and even after purchasing it, I just didn't use it. Nowadays there is a better beer app for free. None are spectacular. Whoever can integrate BeerAdvocate into an easy to use and well designed app will win.

Good app Works great 99% of the time, the odd crash. Would like to see # of rated beers with a picture. Also a way to backup rated beers to transfer to a new phone.
