How do I love beer? Let me count the ways… 🍻
Whether it be a locally branded ale, a craft brew, or a well-known international brand, a good, cold beer mug in my hand is something I always look forward to.
Aside from often being on the lookout for the next good pint to try, I try to find ways to optimize my drinking activities with technology. (Duh, I work for GadgetMatch. Tech mingling with everyday life should be expected!) I’ve picked out my favorite drinking apps so that you, dear audience, will have the same fun and fulfilling tech-assisted hazy beer adventure. You’re welcome.
For times you want to drink beer (which is probably most of the time) but can’t. This app simulates beer on your smartphone and allows you to chug it down, complete with sound effects. Because, why not.
If you’re tired of pretend drinking on your phone, it may be time to get the real thing. Get friends to join you via this no-nonsense app. Beer?! allows you to send invites and set drinking dates with one quick gesture: tap to send “Beer?!,” tap to reply “Beer?!”
Drinking plans were never this fuss-free.
If you’re in no mood to go out for beers, you could pop open a few bottles at home and have a shot 🍺 at this virtual game with friends. Drink-O-Tron is beautifully designed and, more importantly, a surefire way to get more fun out of those beer-filled mugs.
Imagine a social media network like Facebook — but for beer. That’s what Untappd is, sort of. This app allows you to rate and review different beers, check where your drinking buddies are at, or scan beer barcodes to pull up details on your drink. Best part: It can book you an Uber, because we all know that drinking and driving isn’t cool.
We all have our beer-fueled moments, and this particular app is a godsend in that department. Manage your emotionally charged, alcohol-powered drunk-calling confessions with this very useful app. It allows you to block certain numbers for a period of time — yes, as long as you need for your night out — and it asks you to answer a complicated equation when you try. Additionally, it can track your location and send it to your (hopefully not equally drunk) buddies in case you’re a drunk wanderer like yours truly.
Really, what a time to be alive.
Who needs an occasion to drink beer? Well, certainly not me! I welcome a sweet, sweet pint (or three) anytime — especially with these apps safely downloaded on my phone.
Cheers, ladies and gents! Drink moderately, or at least make sure you download that last app.
