For both the beer connoisseur and those new to the craft beer world, the Nevada Brewers Association app is the newest way to discover the state's wide range of award-winning beers, find tap houses, rate and share what you taste.

Users can check in with a favorite brew and the app will recommend other beers based on style and provide a map to the next destination. It also allows users to build custom tours, find nearby breweries, build a wish list of beers or places try, favorite beers to drink again and find out what events are coming up. It includes more than 30 Northern and Southern Nevada breweries who are members of the association.

"This should also appeal to the growing number of beer and culinary tourists visiting Las Vegas and Reno-Tahoe," Don Vetter, the state coordinator for the Nevada Brewers Association, said in a press release.

It's the most complete app for learning about the growing local beer scene, which has been growing for the last decade. In the last four years, the number of breweries in the state has more than doubled. Now people can keep track of that growth with this app.

The app is currently available on iPhone iOS and on Google's Android OS. The app was developed by Brewers Marketing, specializing in custom branded apps for craft breweries, associations and festivals.
