The Beer Mapping Project is Endless Fun for Beer Nerds!

Yesterday I wrote about a nice little brewery locator furnished by the Beer of the Month Club.  Well, the Beer Mapping Project makes that seem so 1997!

The Beer Mapping Project is a deep, almost endless resource of breweries, brew pubs and top notch liquor stores all mapped out precisely on Google maps.  It’s a thing to behold.

I’m heading out to Milwaukee soon, and so I used the “city” feature (you can also search by state and region) to get the 411 on the Milwaukee beer scene.  All of the places I know of are well represented, and there are a few gems I have overlooked in my previous travels that I’m definitely going to check out. Nice!

If you’re planning a trip or just want to see what pleasant surprises might lurk in your own back yard, I urge you to check it out.  It’s endless fun for beer nerds!

    I love this tool. Too much for me to do in Seattle, but it is a must before a trip. Great for seeking out local beers while traveling. Almost like Beer GPS.

      I immediately checked for an iPhone App, but alas, there wasn’t one to be had. I think they have a mobile version of the site, which I’ll try instead. It’d be great to have this in your pocket!

        The perfect app for all the techy drunks… 😉

    Jim,

    I wrote Find Craft Beer which uses Beer Mapping’s API and has the data. I think it’s pretty excellent 😉

      Anything for Droid in the works?

      Sold! Well worth 99 cents I think.

    I don’t use it…they just have way to many holes for my area, and I experienced the same thing when i was in KC over Christmas. Plus, there’s no app. for the droid.

      Hmm, looked good for Milwaukee and around me. Might be a Wiki thing, where folks in your area haven’t pitched in.

      Hey! Thanks for the post about Beer Mapping!

      Nate: there is an app for the droid. There is one called “Beer Map” and there is one called “Beer Mapper.” Beer Map is a full application with maps and is 99 cents. Beer Mapper is free and is an android based wrapper of our mobile site.

      And as Jim mentioned in his “wiki” comment: yes, The Beer Mapping Project is only as good as our users contributions.

      We don’t make any money on the site (all mobile apps are third party using our API) and myself and all of the moderators/administrators of the site are doing this for the love of good beer and good beer people. We try our best to make sure the site is updated as much as possible, but in the end we have to rely on help from craft beer lovers like yourselves.

      Thanks again to Jim and Don for mentioning us! Great site!

        Thanks, Beerinator. It’s a pretty slick set up.

        Maybe Nate can help to make KC and his neck of the woods better by adding the places he knows. That’s how it works after all. Get your Wiki on, Nate!
