App of the Week – CaskFinder

What do you mean you didn’t know next week was National Cask Ale Week? Okay, we didn’t know either, but it’s a good excuse to test out this new iPhone app that will lead you to the nearest worthy pint.

Using the combined nous of Cask Marque’s pub inspectors, Cyclops’ beer standards bods and the iPhone’s GPS chip, the CaskFinder app will guide you to pubs, brewers and events.

Tap on pubs to find out whether they serve your preferred tipple, but if you’ve never heard of the beer (let’s face it, half of them are called things like Badger’s Armpit), you can hit up the database to find out more.

The app also lists beer festivals, a beer blog and a beer of the week.

And on that note, we’re off to the pub.
