I have to admit it; I love a good quality beer. I am always looking, comparing, tasting, and enjoying new beers whenever I have the opportunity. The problem that I often run into is finding a great beer in some small brewery tucked away in some small town, and completely forgetting what that beer was a week later. Now, this fantastic micro-brew can be documented on my iPhone thanks to ThatsTheSpirit.

ThatsTheSpirit is a database for the adult beverage. It is easy to document everything from a fine wine to the finest scotch. Long gone are the days of sipping a fine wine, telling yourself you have to buy this when you get home, and then completely forgetting what the wine was. Entering these spirits could not be any easier thanks to the simple interface. Choose from predefined beverage types, enter the name, cost, where you had it, and more into a simple database. You can even attach a photo of the bottle to the entry so you have an easy visual reference. Finding the drink is just as easy thanks to a simple search feature.

This is a great start for a spirit database, but there are a few things that would have really made this a superior app. The app may contain the ability to enter in hard liquors and beers, but the setup is most certainly geared to the wine coinsure. Including a line item for who produces beverages would also go miles to increasing the usefulness of this database. Also, being able to modify the price so people can know it was $10 for a four pack of beer, and not just a generic $10 entry would really help with budget conscious shoppers. The last bit that could really use a modification is the ability to edit drink types, as the predefined list is fine, but it is not comprehensive by any stretch.

This is a good start to helping you track those fine adult beverages, but it is not quite the comprehensive app some might hope for. It is worth picking up if you enjoy a wide variety of drinks and hate forgetting them at a later time; just know there are some constraints you will have to work around.
