Breweries have become insanely popular in recent years. There's just something about drinking a tasty, cold brew that was made locally. It's the Minnesota-ness that makes it taste so good! And since we have some pretty great breweries here in Rochester, I'm looking forward to the rollout of a new smartphone app called PintPass.

It's available in App Stores now, but a new version is set to launch on October 15. Supposedly, you earn "Beer Money" by answering a few questions about the brew you ordered, including the name, style, and overall appeal of the brewery. The app's goal is to help let breweries know what they're doing right and what they're doing wrong. After you answer a couple questions, the app will give you $2 to spend at any brewery in the country. How cool is that?

And yes, there is a cap on the amount of reviews you can do. Currently, you can review up to four breweries a month, but that's still a solid $8 in beer money. Better than nothing! I'm definitely going to give this a try.
