Cascade Brewery’s free iPhone app, The Brewers Nose, has just been released on iTunes.
The application contains a database of more than 500 individual beers and is presented as a resource for beer drinkers to use when they are standing in their local bottleshop confronted by a wall of beers they may know little or nothing about. Using their compatible iPhone camera users can scan a beer’s barcode and get information about the beer including a description and ‘distinction’ for the beer. They can watch short videos of the Cascade brewers describing the scanned beer’s style and Tasmanian chef Rodney Dunn discuss some food matching options.
As previously mentioned, I was involved in the development of the app (and so think its a bigger story than The Beatles catalogue being released) and so don’t believe that Australian Brews News can impartially review it, but let’s throw open the comments forum for your reviews of the application.
You can download the application from the iTunes app store.
