It’s been a busy year for the craft beer marketplace app Oznr. The app has changed names, been acquired and has seen a spike in usage with the pandemic shifting how breweries and bottle shops do their bottle releases.
It’s no secret that beer nerds love apps – especially apps with badges, rewards and that all-important score board so you can keep track of what your friends are up to.

For nearly every beer nerd or active barhopper, they have at least one type of beer-based application on their phone. In most cases, it’s Uptappd, as it’s easily the most downloaded and widely used beer application. But there are others worth taking note of, including another big name, Taphunter. And with the influx of so many craft breweries, it’s hard to keep track of everything. This is where the OpenTap app is trying to change the game a bit. This particular application focuses on only California breweries, so we reached out to the founder to learn more about his unique perspective.
Do you like beer? Do you like beer you can’t have, but wish you could have it? Well, there’s an app for that – Brewswap.

As anyone who is in a long-term relationship knows, it’s not the big things that start the big fights, it’s the mundane; “Did you stop at the post office on the way home?”, “We’re out of paper towels”, “Grandma’s birthday party is on Sunday, why did you make plans with your friends?!”
