Eat Drink Date

This App Turns You into an Instant Beer Expert, Even if You Know Nothing About Beer

The exploding popularity of craft beers has turned what was once the simple act of ordering a beer on a date into a terror-inducing experience. Gone are the days when your only choices were Heineken and Corona, replaced by the shocked expression on your date’s face upon admitting you don’t know the difference between an oatmeal stout and a farmhouse saison.

Enter Beer Viz, a neat web app that pulls up different beers it thinks you’d enjoy based on what you already drink. Beer Viz is dead-simple to use: Just tell the app which kind of beer you like to drink (Light, Medium, Dark) and it will quickly queue up a fancy visualization of all the different beers you should try and how different styles relate to one another, so you won’t be left drowning in choices the next time you’re at the bar.
