Find New Beer Buddies with the Pint Club iOS App


Shame on you. You’ve been so busy tagging your friends on Foursquare that you’ve forgotten to acknowledge someone very special in your life: the one that’s been there for you at every pub crawl, every backyard BBQ, and many a long plane ride. Your iPhone? No, silly. Your beer.

Next time, try Pint Club, a newly updated iOS app that helps you find, tag, and share your next beer with all your friends on Facebook, Twitter, and Foursquare.

Pint Club has a list of beers from more than 14,000 breweries worldwide that you can tag just like you would a friend or a location. The app also lets you break it down by style, like wheat beer or IPA. (There are 70 to choose from.) You can even use your Foursquare account or the GPS on your phone to tag where you were when you were drinking the beer.

If your beer is not shy, you can take a picture of it and share it with your followers. Pint Club connects to your existing social accounts and you can follow other Pint Club users even if they are not your friends so that you can debate the merits of draft beers versus bottles together and see what other people are drinking that you’re not.

The app can also alert you when your favorite beer is nearby, so you’ll always know which bar to check into first. Guinness also has an app that does this for its own brews, but if you’re not in an Irish beer kind of mood, we definitely recommend Pint Club.

But first, head over to the App Store to download this free app from Chili Technologies LLC for your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch. Your beer will thank you.
