Looking for the best iPhone apps to help you discover great beer and wine? You’ve come to the right place! While the App Store may not have a wealth of beer and wine apps to choose from, it’s got a good enough selection to take the guess work out of choosing which bottle of wine you should buy or which local brewery deserves a visit. But which beer and and wine apps are the very best?



Best beer and wine apps for iPhone: Untappd
Untappd is a social beer finding app that lets you connect with friends as well as find popular beer around you. Add friends or view people nearby to see what they’re drinking. Untappd offers a wealth of information on local and craft beers including ratings from others. You can then add beers to your wish list or find places that sell or serve them right within Untappd.

Untappd is a big favourite of the Back Of The Ferry team. It’s as reliable as Thunderbird 2 and a joy to use.

If you want beer drinking to be a social affair, you want Untappd.
