BrewGene is for beer lovers. With more than 250,000 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.

Works well but have recommendations

This app used to have issues in the past but it has been working quite well over the last few years. A few recommendations would be to be able to report if an incorrect image is associated with an entry, but also editing ability when you make a mistake after submitting an entry. I have submitted a few beers and have had to make a second entry because it would not allow me to correct a typo (although I can update my submitted images - nice feature).

The wide variety of beers make this a much better app than many of the other beer apps that I have installed and later uninstalled.

Good App except needs improvement

IPhone 11, IOS 14. This App is great for keeping up with brews I’ve tried and giving me leads on ones to try. There are issues in execution. First, anytime I use quotation marks or an apostrophe, after saving, it shows as a ?. Also often the listing of the address of the brewery is cut off and there doesn’t appear anyway to see it. Also, duplicate entries for the same brew should be easily reportable. Finally, it would be nice if it would alert me if I’m near somewhere that serves brews on my Watchlist.

Great for rating, tasting notes and keeping track

This app is great for making tasting notes and sharing your opinion and suggestions with others. The "Buddies" portion allows you to easily see if your friends also on the app have already tried a beer and what they think of it. It is also very helpful if you try lots of beers all the time and you can't remember all of them. If you go to a new place and think "have I had this beer before?" You can just check the app, and you'll know not only if you've had it before, but what you thought of it!
