TAPLiSTER

TAPLiSTERIt's a common question: Where can I find the Abyss on tap?! Or, What does the Lantern have on tap right now?! Hey, it's all fair, and luckily there are better ways to figure these things out than browsing through establishments' Facebook pages -- good heavens, is that thing still around?! -- or random Bing-ing. TAPLiSTER has it covered, or at least kind of.

What exactly is TAPLiSTER? It's simply a site and iPhone app that lists the current beers on tap from a selection of bars and restaurants around the region (or, indeed, other regions). Said selection isn't huge here yet, but you have ten bars to peruse, with heavy hitters like Jones, Flying Goat, and Manito Tap House representing.

You can view beers per bar or bars per beer, making browsing a cinch. Granted, neither the site nor the app (in particular) will win many awards for design, but the functionality is sound.

Check out the site or download the iPhone app. And, more importantly, log in and post your beers if you're a bar. It's a good way to attract customers.
