Platforms: iOS, Android
Developer: Untappd LLC
Price: Free

Often termed as the ‘Facebook’ of the beer-drinking world, this free social media app allows you to add friends and log and rate the beers you drink. Add a Wish List for those beers you’re eager to try. And once you start logging your drinks, Untappd will provide suggestions of new brews to provide some diversity in your beer drinking.

You can even earn badges and awards for drinking and add friends, toast and comment on their drinks, and take pictures of your brew to share with others.

Once you start building a backlog of beers you’ve enjoyed, you can start using it as a reference for later. When you walk into your local bar or bottling shop, you can quickly scan how you’ve graded past beers or even take a glance at your Wish List for those beers you’ve been wanting to try.

The only con? It doesn’t offer bottle barcode scanning, which makes the process of manual entering a bit of a pain.
