I agree 100% this app needs a search function.
Those of you requesting search capability, participate in the discussion with the dev on twitter (@jasondonmoyer) or the BJCPDrod website.
Great app. But needs searching capability.
I have always enjoyed this app for quick style guidelines on the go. The old format was a pain though. This new menu system is perfect! Thank you!

Some formatting issues on my Droid. The numbers on the left are too close to the expander control widget things.
Force close issue fixed, once again the perfect beer app!!!
Great reference, but a version (paid) without ads should be offered. Once this occurs, my rating will be higher.
Easier than lugging a binder to competitions. New UI is even easier to navigate. Thanks

Love the new interface. Get a search in there like the iPhone app and I'd bump it to 5 stars.
Love the new UI, much more usable! Minor suggestion: would be good if the back button worked when switching between tabs.
