10 most Popular Businesses of 2018

The clicks are in!

The theme this year: range. We've got a few returning favorites, but we've also got some fresh new faces. We've got bars, breweries, restaurants, and liquor stores. We've got a business in Wichita, KS and a business in New York City.

Another thing we've got? Love for all these businesses. They serve great beer, they run their businesses soundly, and they always tell their customers what's available.

That's the way life should be. Enjoy the list!

Our Favorite Beers of 2018

Header

During the last year we at BeerMenus downed more beers than our parents would care to know. But despite the [staggering] volume, each of us had one beer that mattered more, one beer that stood head and shoulders above the rest.

Whether it's the physical form the beer took, the fact that its maker was involved in the tasting, or that it was the favorite beer of a lost loved one, each of the beers below were seriously special to us.

Here are our favorite beers of the year.

Top 10 Crispy Boys of 2018

Header

Crispy Boys. Those easy drinking lagered beers that always have a time and place—at the beach in the summer heat, around the camp fire with Pops, toasting a solid hike in the trailhead parking lot.

Even in this era of juicy IPA escalation, the whole BeerMenus team has a big place in it's collective heart for Crispy Boys. But, while all of us enjoy a good Crispy Boy, there's one member of our team—Rex, our head account manager—who's by far the Crispiest. Here you'll find Rex's top 10 Crispy Boys of the year.

Sidebar: we thought there was no better way to show our love for Crispy Boys than making a neat-o t-shirt. Check out our store on Teespring to grab one for you and your Crispy buddies!

Beer Recommendations BETA!

Beer Recommendations

We're proud to announce a brand new BeerMenus feature, made just for you, the beer lover: Beer Recommendations!

Now each menu on BeerMenus mobile web, iPhone app, and Android app will lead off with an all new "Recommendations" section!


We're still working out a few kinks (hence the BETA tag) but we were just too damn excited to wait any longer. We needed to let Recommendations loose on the world ASAP!


We'll get into the algorithm-y weeds below (grab some popcorn!) but here's the bare bones story on how Recommendations work: Beers land in the "Recommendations" section based on how well they score in 5 categories:

• Is the beer local?
• Is the beer rare?
• Is the beer sought-after?
• Is the beer new to the menu?
• Is it rated well?

As you can see, we also included Recommendations by Beer Style in this launch. We love this tool. It comes in handy if, for example, you want a hoppy beer but you don't know where to start because a place has a ton of IPAs, double IPAs, etc. Simply navigate to "Recommended Hoppy Beers" and order!

As always, if you have any questions/concerns/feedback let us know.

Once you give Recommendations a shot, show us some love by Tweeting about them or sharing this blog post on Facebook !
