BreweryMap plans your next beer road trip

Posted to Maps  |  Tags: ,  |  Nathan Yau

BreweryMap, a Google Maps mashup and mobile app, provides two main functions. The first is that it tells you where the nearest brewery is so that you’ll never go thirsty again. The second and far more important function is that you can punch in two addresses, and BreweryMap tells you all the breweries that are on the way from point A to point B.

Let your fantasy become a reality. Just make sure to spread out your trips.

  • Seriously, ‘craft’? It used to be ‘gourmet’, then ‘artisan’, now ‘craft’ (which is a cheese, last I checked) can we just stay with ‘microbrew’? Is it that painful to use one phrase for more than five years? And, I bet, that despite all the fancy names and ‘Corel Draw text-on-a-circle/diamond’ logos, all of these beers taste like the same Bitter. Ie: Sam Adams or Red Hook. Same crap, different label.
