About


BEER CRAWL -  the home of good beer.

If an Australian craft beer venue directory and a beer tracking app had a baby, and that baby had a whole lot of awesome superpowers, Beer Crawl would be it.
It’s the answer to the important questions in life:

  • What if you could go on a pub crawl to all new places, and be confident that they’d serve good beer?
  • What is currently open near me, when will it close?
  • What if you could record a life-long list of venues you’ve visited and beers you’ve tried?
  • And better still… what if you could see a list of venues and beers you still want to try?

Our platform was made with the following key features in mind:

  1. All the important information at a glance – sometimes you just want to quickly see what a place has to offer, not spend 10 minutes reading to find out.
  2. A complete list of venues that serve good beer, not just those that can afford to pay a monthly subscription to be on a directory.
  3. Plan day visits. We recommend:
    1. visiting only 1-2 venues on an outing to get a good feel of the place and offerings.
    2. a good feed and plenty of water. A better pallet = better tasting beer.
    3. designated Driver or responsible method of transport.


With Beer Crawl, your craft beer journey is just beginning.

  • A simple-to-navigate map of all the good beer places in Australia, which keeps growing as the industry does. What’s near you? Which venues are close to each other?
  • Check in to venues to record where you’ve been, and easily see where you still want to try. There’s always new venues to discover!
  • A supercharged search function with impressive filters. Want a bar with a pool table, live music, and no sports screens?
    How about a brewery that does growler fills and tasting paddles? Or one that has wifi, barista coffee, and is pet friendly?
    Or even want to find which venues have a certain style of beer on tap? Find exactly what you’re looking for.
  • A local events calendar that lists all the events run by microbreweries and craft beer bars, organised by state. Don’t miss out because you didn’t check the right Facebook pages at the right time—let the list of upcoming events come to you, and just scroll through until you see something that grabs you!
  • After all, life is a beer crawl. So get crawling.

    We give all good beer breweries and venues a fair go.

    The Australian craft beer scene was built on new and small breweries. Since ratings systems for beers can greatly disadvantage smaller and newer breweries and venues, we’ve left out the ratings system for beers and venues. This way, lovers of beer at different stages and with different tastes can try new beers and venues without bias, and find the new best beer they’ve ever had.
    Beer Crawl provides a lifetime free listing to breweries and all venues that serve good beer. We do this as we feel it is important to showcase venues of all sizes, rather than just those that have a larger marketing budget. Our revenue is made from advertisement space, digital signage solutions and an array of marketing and time saving services for bars.

    We prefer quality of information over quantity.

    We believe accuracy of information is paramount. Therefore, we exclusively display information and images of beer supplied direct by the brewery. We also only accept information about venues if it has been added or confirmed by the venue. International beers are currently being added to our database to accommodate for more bars. We will always prioritise Australian listings.

    We’re 100% Australian.

    • We love to support Australian beer — support an Australian beer app!
    • 100% Australian created databases, coding and development.
    • 100% Australian phone support.
    • 100% Australian employees and contractors.


    We provide the information, not the opinions.

    Beer Crawl allows users to save private comments. But we believe there are enough media out there for people to express their opinions to the world, so we don’t flood your screen with what every man and his dog thinks.

    Gamification? Trophies?

    We don't believe it is ethical to reward people for how much they drink. Drinking good beer is its own reward.

    Our Data

    We decided that we needed to create a new database from scratch, to allow for all the added functionality we include (and what we have in the pipeline).
    The second, and most important point, is that some providers could simply start charging for their API / database – meaning other free services out there that use these databases would either have to start charging, or close.

    __________

    But more importantly, what craft beer you are yet to try, and craft beer bars in Australia that you have yet to visit.
