Learn about beer through a text.

Are you envious of beer connoisseurs who can taste hints of barley, chocolate or apricots, while all you taste is a dark bitter beer that doesn’t seem much different from a Guinness? With BeerText.Us, you too can learn all about what’s in your brew. It’s simple – text the name of your beer to (315) 679-4711 and within a minute you get a reply with a description, ingredients and alcohol content. The service was developed by business incubator Syracuse Student Sandbox, and pulls information from a U.S. brewery database. Sadly, this meant it can’t find Alberta classic, Big Rock’s Grasshopper, so we had to be archaic and look up the description on our PC.
