Vision:
The vision of the BMC is to develop and ever changing and evolving beer pairing app fueled and perfected by you!

Functioning as a pocket guide to pair your favorite beer with your favorite food.  Eating burgers tonight? Find out what beers go good with cheese & bacon. Once the app is open, simply select the food you either are eating, or would like to eat.  Then select the way it will be prepared.  Our app will then suggest a style of beer to pair with your food, based on a specific and detailed flavor algorithm using food chosen, and preparation style. It’s that simple... By the way, that bacon Double cheese burger you’re about to eat pairs perfectly with a Killian's Irish Red.

We have partnered with a local app developer, an in-house graphic designer, in-house web developer, and several hundred bars and beer drinkers in the Southern United States .  All we need is your help!

We started with building a database of nearly 300 different beer/food combinations categorized in a way that will appeal to every palate.  Suggestions from our club members are encouraged and are the backbone of our app, leaving no tongue unsatisfied.

Building our Database
Building our Database

We condensed our list into a manageable, relevant and useful list of more common combinations.  A way to appeal to a thirst of the masses!

We kept the design simple, intuitive and fun.

Now we need your help to get us into production.

Our app will exist to benefit the everyday beer drinker and those drinkers that order the same beer with their meal everytime they go out. You too can learn how get the best taste out of your meal!

Brewmasters.Club will teach you and your friends how to better enjoy the sweet suds you already drink. 

We all love to learn about what we like, why not learn more about how to pair beer with food? 

The BMC was founded in July 2007, from humble beginnings and a few nightly trips to a local watering hole, in sunny Orlando Florida. After settling in at the bar for a few cold ones a conversation began that quickly jumped around the bar like wildfire. We began discussing our favorite beers and why we enjoyed them. The interesting thing was, that no-one really knew why they enjoyed beer, just that it tasted good, and most importantly, contained Alcohol.

This question followed our founder home that night and stuck with him for all the years since.

We like beer for a trillion different reasons, and every time we try something new, we discover a new reason why we do or don’t like that new and specific beer.

We have spent more than five years working, learning, and drinking beer from around the world to bring a new light to beer and beer drinkers. We have dedicated years receiving training and instruction by one of the largest beer producers in the world on how to store & pour correctly and ignore the common myths about beer. We have learned from the best how to pair beer with food, no matter whats for dinner.

We love meeting people that have an interest in beer, plain and simple.

The app will be simple at first...

It will function as a pocket guide to use as often as you drink beer to pair with your food.  Once the app is open, simply select the meat/food you either are eating, or would like to eat.  Then select the way it will be prepared.  The app will then suggest a style of beer to pair with your food and where to find it.

It will start off that simple, but with your help, it can be so much more...

With the help of our app you can learn things like:

  • Where to find the beer you want to pair with
  • What type of beer to you should consider drinking given the climate, time of year, and type of season you are in
  • Ales Vs. Lagers, Dark vs. Light beer
  • Proper storage technique for better tasting beer
  • How to drink beer, most effectively
  • what type of glass to use, and how to distinguish between different types of beer
  • Signs of a bad beer, and how you can tell the difference
  • When to send a beer back
  • What types of food pair well with different styles of beer
  • How to create your own pairings
  • How to talk about beer, intelligently
  • The true facts about consumption and myths about beer

The BMC will deliver all of this information and more via a fully interactive Iphone (followed by Android, Windows and Ipad) application.

Example functionality... (where to find your beer/meal)

Where your money will Go:

We need the app built!  Your funds will go directly to bigger and broader means of educating and fulfillment to those seeking more enjoyment from beer. 

But mainly, building our app! 

Thank you for stopping by! And thanks for your support.

Cheers!

Risks and challenges

The hardest part of this experience will be funding. Obtaining funding, we anticipate for building and maintaining an application like this will be the hardest part.

The relationships we build with people like you early, and quickly will make or break our dream, to have this app in the pocket of as many beer drinkers as we can.

With your help, and the help of others we will be able to change the way you look at beer, we just know it!
