The Beer Engine

Welcome to the Beer Engine

The Beerengine is on the way back. There are currently lots of little jobs to do and until I'm happy that the site is working well anonymous contributions are not possible.

What's in this site

The beer engine currently has entries for 526 bars, 130 beershops, 1678 brewers and 8391 beers.

Only bars and beershops in Europe and of interest to serious beer drinkers are listed in this site. All brewers and beers are welcome.

Map Browser

This page has a large map which you can move and zoom to the area you're interested in. The right side of the page lists all the Beerengine entries in the visible part of the map.


Starting with a list of Countries this page allows you to 'drill down' into the information in two different ways. Clicking on place names will move on to the next level geographically. Clicking on the numbers will list those entries. For example if you want to see all the brewers in the Italian province of Lombardia click on 'Italy' to see a list of Italian provinces then click the number in the 'Brewers' column on the 'Lombardia' row.


Live search

Search the site simply and rapidly. As you type you will see a list of entries whose name contains the text you've typed. If you're not sure of spellings you can type just the bit you know.


All beer related events from local tastings to international festivals are welcome here. Events are listed around a location so you will not see local events in far distant cities.

Beerengine mobile

For mobile devices there's a separate site optimised for small touch screens.

Working with your location you can see what's nearby, navigate to a location and make geo tagged notes.
