I'm looking for apps, as a beer aficionado, to record the different beers that I try. Is there a vivino for beer?

  • Untappd works well for me. I can see all the beers I have tried and what I rated them. I also use BeerMe (Windows Phone) Commented Jul 24, 2014 at 13:19

I would suggest the app Untappd. It gives you an opportunity to comment on beers and include pictures and locations. You can even earn badges that notate various "beer achievements".

  • Yes, it is Untappd. Unlike Vivino, you have to type the beer name.

  • Not just the name, you can also search the for the brewery, as well as adding your own (generally small batch colabs). It's a great app

In my opinion most of such apps are not what you really need and they often lack something. Therefore I simply use Google Drive Spreadsheet. As cheap as it sounds, it has everything that you want out of it.


I have personally used Pintley on iOS (but it's cross platform) and found it to be a pretty good app. The quality of the graphics isn't intensely refined, but the beer list is very comprehensive. I found that the beer list was one of the most important things in an app like this, since I was usually in quick situations when I wanted to record and rate a beer. I didn't want to be out with friends and browsing through a ton of pages to finally have to input all the details of a beer that was fairly common.

A friend of mine just switched to Beer Citizen (also cross platform), which seems to have a more refined look. I've done some searching through the database though, and there seems to be quite a bit missing...


Beer Buddy. Hands down best beer tracking, rating, and review app ever. It's associated with ratebeer.com so if you have an account with them you can sync your reviews.
