It is being touted as the “Pandora for beer” although you can’t taste beers straight from your smartphone the same way you can listen to music.
The Next Glass app is available for both Android and iOS and serves both beer and wine drinkers. After you download it, it will have you rate some beers. Then when scan a bottle at your local store or do a search for a particular beer it will return a score that predicts if, and how much, you’ll like that beer.
“The more you rate, the more we learn about you,” said Next Glass CEO Kurt Taylor. “We look through chemistry of the beers and wines you have given us your preference on and we are able to find correlations and trends within your profile to figure out what is driving your enjoyment of those bottles.”
