Webtool: Beer Locator

I was listening to the Inside the Net podcast and, according to Leo, only 1/5 Americans actually know the meaning of a "podcast". I'm guessing if you're savvy enough to find this site, you are part that enlightened minority. Then I was thinking, there may be some nifty tools out there that are even less well known than podcasts. I could use this site to highlight these tools in a "webtool" group of posts. The idea is that these posts will be like "daily distractions" but useful.

For this first webtool post, here is something that may appeal to most law students: the Beer Locator (aka the Beer Hunter). This is one of the best mashups out there. At this point, the site is limited to Ontario (which works for Queen's students) but they are planning on expanding. For the readers in Minnesota, New York or Taiwan, it may take a while. Here are a couple links to get you started:
