As a craft beer lover, you no doubt know just how hard it can be to find the perfect beer in your area. While the search itself can be enjoyable, it can also be daunting. Just think of all those bars and pubs that serve nothing but mass-produced beers that you'll have to sift through to find just one that offers craft beer! Even then, there's no guarantee that they'll have the type that you want. Well, one company is set to help you out. TapHunter.com, a new startup on the Internet, promises to make your search short and sweet. How does it work?
The entire goal of Tap Hunter is to streamline your search process, allowing you to find establishments that have the type of craft beer that you want on tap. Actually, you'll find that they make it extremely easy to find what you want, where you want it. There are two primary search methods here. First, you can search by the type of beer you want. Just type in the name of the beer and you'll be given a list of pubs and bars where it is served on tap. Second, you can search by geographic area. This will give you a list of bars and pubs in your area and the beers that they are serving.
Of course, there's more to Tap Hunter than just a search feature. You'll also find a lot of information here about craft beer in general – information about different breweries, as well as info about the brews in question. If you have ever wondered what the alcohol content or special ingredients are in your preferred brew, then you will likely be able to find out here. There are also maps and brewery information included, and a lexicon of craft beers sorted by location, brewery and alphabetically. There is even a coupon/discount section, where you can find bar and pub specials that are only good for a 24-hour window.
Best of all, you can actually get an iPhone app for Tap Hunter. That means you can search for the perfect brew no matter where you are, so long as you have a cell phone signal. The app is free of charge, too, so you don't have to worry about spending your beer money on it. The website is viewable in a mobile version too, for those who don't have an iPhone.
