Expand Your Knowledge

The Beer Wizard app is a flexible offering that helps you find the perfect beer by a variety of factors. You can choose by beer style, food pairing, or even by the one you know. The Dan's Monthly Draft Picks section provides users with some incredible recommendations that you may not have heard of before. You can also perform a more specific search by selecting beer style categories, setting the color, ABV%, and bitterness. You can then take all your search results and organize them by beer or brewery, or whatever makes it easiest for you.

The app has a respectable 3.5 out of five stars from users who have described it as highly detailed, contains helpful tools and functions, and it has a reasonable price tag.

Additional Tools

The Beer Wizard app has a number of added tools that help to make this more fun and convenient to use. If you happen to come across a beer that you can't find in The Beer Wizard database you can recommend it to be added. You can view awards that different beers have one, add your own reviews of beers and even a picture of it, and check out what glass is recommended for each of the beers. The glass recommendation is a really cool feature that you can even use at your next get together and wow your guests as you serve them up a fancy brew in the proper glass.

The user interface feels a bit clunky it would be nice to see it updated and modernized. The app is also in need of updates to the content as it's been quite a while since any updates have been done at all.
