Connoisseurs of beer are getting a boost from a bevy of new apps. Craft Beer New York is a brewery and a bar guide. Content is provided by Joshua Bernstein, author of Brewed Awakening. Bars are included only if they have good beer selections. But that’s not the sole criteria for good ratings. The New York Times reports that one midtown establishment close to Port Authority received a two out of five rating because of its high prices, bad décor and lame music.

Untappd allows people to share reviews of beers and keep a record of what they’ve tried. The crowdsourcing function locates new bars. Enter a name into BrewGene’s extensive database, and it suggests similar brands to try.
