Introducing the Brew Guru mobile app
« on: August 24, 2016, 10:32:35 AM »
The AHA is very excited to unveil the Brew Guru mobile app. It's a great tool for any beer drinker and homebrewer, and has added benefits for the AHA member.

Check it out here, and let us know what you think!

Found a couple of breweries near work that I hadn't heard of.  The app is very user friendly, so far no complaints
Some day we'll look back on this and it will all seem funny

I was hoping for a lot more.  Thought I would be able to access the recipe database and also the nhc seminars.  Am I doing it wrong?

I have found some errors in the map. A method to report these would be good.

From a user experience, it is a bit confusing to get to the map. The menu lists it as member deals, by the map also show breweries and pubs.

Overall I am happy to replace my home screen AHA member deals bookmark with the app.

The app lists 3 companies  with discounts in Huntsville. I went to one (Mellow Mushroom) the day before this app came out and they said they no longer give the AHA discount. They still had an AHA sticker on the front door.

Another offers 5% off homebrew supplies but stopped selling homebrew supplies a few months ago.

That's not a complaint about the app. It's nice.

There are a lot of data in the app's map function. Those data were pulled from a BA database I'm sure. Often I see the main office or production facility listed, but if you ask for directions, it takes you to the pub or tap room - but not always.

I was told to send issue to info@brewersassociation.org so that those can be captured.

I think the app is pretty slick and look forward to using it on a road trip.

One error I found shows a location that is about 8 miles south of the real place. Another is a brewery that closed way back.

App seems good, needs some improvements.
