When it comes to local breweries, we’re spoiled for choice these days, and with more and more opening each month, you may have found it frustrating to decide where to go. Well, fret no more: a new app developed here in Cary simplifies the hunt for local brews and bites. John Endicott and Katie Boyd created Hoptender when they grew tired of scanning Facebook and Twitter and digging through brewery and bottle shop websites, to discover nearby food trucks and events. The app syncs calendars and social media from all of these sources to streamline the search for a brewery on the go, and you can find the best brewery for you from North Carolina’s mountains to coast. The app updates constantly, adding new bottle shops and food trucks, and the most recent version includes a business portal where businesses can create and update their own calendars. Hoptender is available for Apple and Android.
