Northern,WI 10/8/2012 (BasicsMedia) – How helpful would it be to you if you could look up the various brands of beer servered and what bars they were served at and you could also look up an menu from any bar, grill or restaurant in the city? I can picture it now, you have this date whom will only eat seafood and you are a beer loving, beef eating machine. Why stumble when you could use Beervana from Taplister.com and find out all the information you need to know, so you don’t look like some bottom feeding carp in your dates mind.
I am not sure about the name Beervana. Beertopia would be better I think. A Utopian world of every flavor of beer imaginable with chimneys that look like tappers and garages that look like half barrels. Beervana came out of the fertile mind of Taplister.com CEO Kerry Finsand back in 2009 while he and some other fellow craft beer lovers were brainstorming “over a few pints of the golden suds I bet” how visitors and locals alike could find out where their favorite suds was being served, thus saving them time and brain cells when Fridays rolled around and the call of the weekend was upon them.
Beer drinking has been on the rise last year. The volume drank increased almost 2% and if this keeps up it will be the first year since 2008 that the market will have gone up with a year over year increase. Craft beers seem to be leading the way. This section of the industry shot up some 15% according to the Brewers Association and the number of breweries is the highest it has been for a long time. You would have to go back to the 1880s to find this many breweries in operation. We have many breweries here in the land of Milk and Cheese such as Central Waters Brewing Company, Rhinelander Brewing Company, Joseph Schlitz Brewing Company, and my personal favorite Point Beer brewed in Stevens Point, WI.
The Beervana app is free and it works on the Apple iPhones. The revenue stream for the company comes from enlisting the various businesses to join. This can be a very simple plan or they can choose from several others ranging in cost up to $99 a month. Beervana has grown from about 50 cities to more than 70 at the current time including all the big cities like New York, Boston, Chicago and San Francisco.
Now the only thing left to do is to find a good looking date whose biggest question is, where can I find my favorite beer?
