Let's taste!

OK app...agree with others that I would like to be able to highlight my wish list. Would like to see times and placement for special beers that are only available at certain times. Also we are 6 days away and it isn't updated yet....but great starting point!

Deleted to do and saved beers day of event

I went through and looked up all beers I was interested online and saved the highly rated beers. I checked again the day before event and was fine. Day of event the app logo changed and everything I saved was totally gone. Hours of work for nothing. The good news is the actual event was still awesome.

It is what it is

Works well as a partial list. There always seem to be issues with the to-do and map functions.
