BEST LOCAL APP: Brewski Me

The local programming and mobile developer scene has a long way to go before we catch up with the likes of San Francisco’s silicon hub or Austin’s post-Midway explosion. However, there are people doing exemplary work in and around the Bay Area, and one of those companies is Winter Haven’s Apps Versus Robots, producers of “Brewski Me” — an app (currently available for iPhone) that lets users know what their friends are drinking and where. It also allows you to rate your brew (can, bottle or draft), read peer reviews, select featured beers from the “Beer Garden,” add rare finds to a “Wish List” or store your favorites in “The Cellar.” Yes, an app for beer snobs. Damn it, why didn’t we think of that? brewski.me.
