Coastr – The Social Guide to Beer

Even though I'm already sick of “Web 2.0” type sites, I figured I'd give Coastr a try since it is for beer drinkers. According to the site, here's what it is all about:

Coastr is an experiment in social networking for beer snobs (meant as a compliment, of course!). The basic idea is for you to create a list of your favorite beers, and to connect you with other people with similar tastes. And those connections will help you discover interesting new brews that you might have not known about before. “Social beermarking”, if you will.

I created an account and started adding some beers. You can view my page. I've added a few of the beers I had this past week. None of them were in the list yet so I added them so now anyone else can quickly add them to their list. According to this, there is nobody with beer tastes like mine šŸ˜¦

The idea is that as more people enter their beers/beer joints and as I enter more, I'll be able to find people that have the same ones in common. Unfortunately, I can't figure out how this works exactly since when I view the list of people that have a beer on their wall, the list doesn't show anything other than their username so I'm left to click them to find out where they are and what beers/places they like.

So far, I think it is a great idea to get AdSense revenue šŸ™‚
