Today’s Killer Startup: Brewery Passport
Brewery Passport is “your mobile tasting companion for discovering local breweries, microbreweries, brewpubs and craft brewers.”
Why It’s A Killer Startup:
I’m from Vermont, which has the highest number of craft breweries per capita in the United States. Probably because of our history that combines generations of farmers with generations of hippies, Vermonters love artisanal and local everything, and we most definitely don’t slack when it comes to the artisanal and local beer.
Now, I left Vermont — and the whole United States — nearly four years ago and I have to say, one of the major things I really, really miss is good beer. A nice, cold, bitter IPA on draft is one of my favorite things on a hot day and that’s a very, very tall order in the countries I’ve chosen to live over the past few years.
Or, maybe, I just wasn’t looking in the right places.
Brewery Passport is a great app for anyone who loves a good, solid beer. The app currently has more than 4,000 breweries in the United States and Canada, and is working on adding other countries as well. (Please, please do! I need you!) The app lets you request to buy a beer, make a tasting reservation, or join a beer club, directly in-app.
Because it’s a “passport,” you’ll also get stamps for each brewery that you visit. You can log your impressions of the beer and your experience there in your journal or share them directly with friends. You can also save any breweries you want to visit but haven’t hit up yet by adding them directly to your brewery wish list.
