It’s been quite a promising seven months for Untappd as they near their one millionth check-in on their web-based app. If you haven’t heard of Untappd, it’s similar to Foursquare but instead of checking into different venues, you “check-in” to the beers you are drinking, where you’re drinking and you can quickly rate them. Meanwhile, you can see what your friends are drinking and Untappd will make recommendations to what other beers you should try that are similar to the one in your hand and you can see what micro, macro and local beers are trending.
Today, Friday the 3rd, Untappd is having an east coast and a west coast Million Check-In Meet Up. For the east coasters out there, it will happen at Rattle N’ Hum in New York at 8:00 EST. For all my left coasters out there, it will happen at 6:00 PST at Libary Alehouse in Los Angeles. If you attend the events, be sure to check into the venue when you check-in to your first beer and you’ll unlock a promotion to receive half off of your next beer. Even if you aren’t attending the party, check-in to any beer today and you’ll earn yourself the Million Check-In Badge.
