Four years ago I created a simple mobile phone app so that myself (and any other visitors to the festival) could find out all the info on the beer, wine, ciders, music and food while actually at the festival. It runs on any mobile device, as it went down a storm (local paper, ESP magazine, and BBC Radio Cambs featured it).
It’s now semi-official, still mine but the the lovely people at the Pboro branch of CAMRA were very happy with it, supplying me with the beer / cider / wine data, and promoting it too via their twitter.
NOW LISTING THE 2016 CASK ALES, CIDERS, WINES AND BOTTLED BEERS!
It’s available in a simple web app on your iPhone / android phone, there’s no download, you just visit the web url in your browser, by clicking the link below. It will work on your laptop/PC too but may look a little ‘odd’.
You can search for beers by several simple ways; alphabetically, by brewery, by beer style (bitter, IPA, porter etc), or even by strength!
New in 2016: The LocAle bar is no more this year, but instead is a Key-Keg bar – which I’m very happy about, being a ‘craft’ beer advocate and fan. I’m far from ‘traditional’ CAMRA, I feel good beer is good beer no matter the science behind how it’s served. I now Keg my own home brew, and it’s 100% better (and lasts longer).
YOU CAN ALSO VOTE
If you want to take part, you can rate each beer you try between 1 and 5 stars.. and the app shows you the top 25 beer list as voted for by YOU the drinkers, and also your own personal favourites if you’ve forgotten the day after 🙂
Please do pass on the url of the mobile app to any of your friends who will be attending, e-mail them the url so they can click on it on their phone (iPhone, Blackberry or Android, all should work fine!); beerfest.kristianbrown.co.uk/app/
