Barcode Scanning
Beer Buddy allows you to use your device's camera to scan UPCs (barcodes) from beer bottles, cans, and cases, to obtain vital information pertaining to that particular beer. Discover history, alcohol content, user reviews, the brewery behind the beer, and much more all from scanning a barcode. If it happens that your beer has not been found via barcode scanning, add it to our vast database or search for it by name. Integration and Reviews
With Beer Buddy you will be able to actively interact with the web's most complete beer database at With more than 300,000+ beers, and more being added everyday, the database is at your fingertips. Many beers in the database can now be scanned, found, rated and shared. Users that have a account will be able to write and post reviews to the website directly from Beer Buddy. Users will also be able to synchronize their ratings to their device for later offline viewing. All users will have the ability to read reviews from and see categorical scores for taste, aroma, palate, etc.

Beer Finder
"Beer Finder", innovative enough to be an app by itself has been seamlessly integrated into Beer Buddy. Search for beers by name using Beer Buddys' intuitive auto complete search. You now have the ability to search the top beers in every country, the best seasonal beers, and's Top 50 list. Ever wonder what the top beer is in the United States, South Africa or any other country in the world?? Now you have that ability in the palm of your hands.

Beers On-Tap
The "On Tap" feature is a new idea in beer apps that allows you to compose a list of beers you have not yet tried but would like to in the future. Now you can find a beer and add it to a list, read up on it, find beers from the same brewery and get a ton of other information. Beers "On Tap" can be easily transferred to your favorites or tasted list and reviewed.

Favorites List
Beer Buddy will also allow you to make a list of your favorite beers. Your favorites list will give you the ability to rank and rate your beers. With addition of new ales, porters, stouts, ciders, and more your favorites list can seamlessly be edited. Integration with social media such as Facebook and Twitter.

Some of the proceeds of this app go to maintenance and preservation of the world's most complete beer database,

What people are saying about us...
"This is by far the most comprehensive beer app out there, and will be your buddy to finding, drinking and rating beer. The app is directly integrated with so you can read reviews of any beer and locations (retailers, bars, and breweries), as well as provide your own ratings...You can start by either searching for the name of the beer or scanning the barcode. Once you find your beer, you can bookmark it for later via the On Tap function."

This great wish I knew about this a long time ago. The only way to make it better would be if it actually kept count of tasted beers just for novelty sake. Great app for any beer lover!!!
Awesome app!

Just keeps getting better! (cue sound of a beer bottle opening) Version 2.0 has added a lot of features, all of them very useful and the integration is quite impressive. Awesome update just makes an incredible app more amazing. RateBeer is lucky to have an app like this! I have a slew of beer apps. I find this one to be the most comprehensive of them all. What's great is that the app is fully integrated with so there is a plethora of information available. I can review ANY beer and takes notes as I drink. I can take down beers that I want to try later on as well. The fact that it looks awesome doesn't hurt either. The barcode scanning feature is far superior than any other app and comes in great use while perusing at the beer store! Cheers to the people who came up with this app! The update has a new feature to search "Top by Style". This allows me to view the top list for each style of beer. Awesomeness! App is looking sexy as ever, Cheers!
