Tech: PourTaste App

Have you been looking for the best craft cocktail bar in your area? The PourTaste App has you covered.


PourTaste is one of the most in-depth and trusted cocktail house locators on the market. Whether you’re looking for prohibition-era classics or modern and innovative chef driven libations, PourTaste gives you an all inclusive 50 state database of the best drinking establishments in America. The first of its kind, PourTaste also includes a Drink of the Week program using recipes from participating venues that you can enjoy while out or at home!

Functionally, this app operates off of a 5 star rating system. By virtue of being included in the database, all restaurants and bars here are better than your average watering hole. The 5 stars reflect the intensity at which any establishment focuses on its cocktail program. It does not reflect anything about the overall menu (though most establishments included are also chasing local, organic and sustainable food handed by impeccable service).

1 star will reflect the places that, though it’s not their sole identity, offer a few drinks with historical relevance and/or some forward thinking flavor profile behind it. Work you’re way up the rating system to the 5 star joints and these are the places that are leading the imbibing culture daily, embracing the sole identity as a cocktail aficionados haunt, making everything, besides the liquor (and sometimes that), in house. House cordials, house bitters, house syrups, house tonics, house sodas, house everything.

We live in an amazing age of the cocktail. While having a grand scope of a much respected past, bartenders and chefs alike are pushing the envelope for flavor, quality and detail in everything they serve. This is the new norm. PourTaste is shining a much needed light on it.
