Hi I would love to play but I have no idea how to enable the data field or how to add it to one of my data field screens. Please provide step by step instructions......I am not tech savvy. Struggling

March 20, 2018 | Version 1.6-upd5

A data screen for the stuff that matters. Configurable means I can adjust it to the UK pint. And adding the beer count to the Garmin Connect summary is a particularly nice touch. Indispensable.

Fun datafiled! You can bump of the calories per beer (as I did) if you prefer post-workout craft beers with a higher ABV. *** Note: for those who are looking for a widget/app, this isn't it. It's a datafield you can add to existing screens in the standard run/cycle/etc. apps ***

For those of you looking for a widget to track the number of beverages you've drank, do a search for "BeerCounter." Then you can subtract those from the number of beers you earned in your activities!

Hi, fun app. Where can I find my earned beers? Fenix3hr More stars when I find my earnings ;-)

First of all you'll need to have this data field enabled within the activity you're doing in order for it to apply (just means you need to add it to one of your data field screens). They are stored with the event in Garmin Connect, both mobile and web, visible as a graph that grows during the activity (in yellow), as beers per lap (in the splits), and as a total for the entire activity (with overall summary data). View the activity on the web, and it's below the map, labeled "Beers Earned." If viewing the activity details in the mobile app, the total beers earned are at the very bottom of the 2nd tab, under the "Connect IQ" divider (you'll need to scroll down). and the earning graph is at the bottom of the 4th tab, a big yellow graph at very bottom of the page of graphs.

I really enjoy watching my beer glass fill during my activities! Thank you for your work on this! I would love to see this implemented as a widget that could track beers earned all day, not just in an activity, as well.

October 4, 2017 | Version 1.6-upd

I love it, but wish it was a wine glass getting filled. Can you so it?

Finally a data field that counts calories in a way that makes sense :-)

App not storing beers earned into activity on Garmin Connect after v8.30 upgrade for Fenix 3. It was working before v8.30, broken since then. Br

Sorry to hear it's not working. I can't control bugs in the Fenix 3 software.

Sorry, downloaded today and could not find beer on my Vivoactive HR ( maybe I drank it!) 2 stars at this stage for the good idea and hope you get over the problems.

As stated, data fields have to be added to your screens, which is done in the preferences for each activity. Once it's been added to your activity data screens, it will be there!

Marche très bien sur Edge 1000 et enregistre dans GC. Aujourd'hui j'ai gagné 7.9 bières et je suis saoul. Bravo.

Amazing, I have been waiting to be able to record the earned beers and you made it... great add... thanks

April 25, 2017 | Version 1.51

Love this data field. It's a fun way to measure calories burned without looking at a boring number. I have all my friends hooked. They always ask me how many beers did we earn on this ride!

Great little App to add fun to a ride but how can I configure it on an Edge 1000?

My garmin 1000 has three available screens and this is on every one of them. Fav widget.

I *believe* I have the issue on VivoActive HR fixed. I hope you'll give it another chance.

Works well on my fenix3, but need to adjust the default setting to 132 cal for 330ml of beer. Would be good if could see the result in the record log

Developer Reply

You may adjust the calories per beer within Garmin Connect App (go to device / Connect IQ Apps / Data Fields / Beer Tracker Plus / Settings) or from Garmin Express (in the Data Field settings). Also: working on an update to save the final beer total in Connect along with the activity.

Seems to work on my Forerunner 235, but how to select the type and colour of beer?

Developer Reply

It's a bit hidden, but it's the only way to configure settings for a data field. In your mobile Garmin Connect App (go to device / Connect IQ Apps / Data Fields / Beer Tracker Plus / Settings). Or do the same from within Garmin Express on your computer.

I want to love this app but it corrupts the upload of the activity to Strava. I removed the data field and my uploads work again. I tested it twice. It's definitely the culprit.

May 30, 2016 | Version 1.3

Could be possible for the app to record the final reading after stopping an activity?

Developer Reply
April 25, 2017, brewer_midwest

I have added early support for this, but to be honest the device and connect web/mobile platforms are having a LOT of issues with this right now. Not all data is recorded on all devices, and even when it's recorded, it's not always displayed in Garmin Connect. They tell me this is a "known issue," and I hope it's corrected sooner rather than later.

While it works well with native apps on fenix3 it does not work in custom workouts created in Connect

Doesn't work on my vivoactive hr when on bike ride but it is on there when I got home

Nice app, have great potential...

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
