“I decided to build a beer guide that makes entering the world of craft beer less intimidating for the average consumer. I thought this guide could be a bridge between beer enthusiasts and average beer consumers to push craft beers further into the mainstream,” he said.
“By defining a beer’s flavor profile, users can discover new beers that they would likely enjoy.”
The styles section categorizes many types of beer into short list. Whether you’re pale lager fan or prefer a Belgian-style brew, you’ll find no shortage of beers you might enjoy. The flavors file suggests savory palate pleasers based on the spectrum of flavors you like.

Gallagher also created Democracy's Drink to serve as an online community for craft beer enthusiasts. The site has some of the top beer bloggers on the Internet as members, as well as interesting content creators such as Beer Tap TV.
