Drink Socially

January 26, 2011

Everyone knows that drinking beer is more fun when others are involved. That’s been a given for centuries.

The makers of Untappd have taken this age-old tradition and brought it into the digital age with their beer drinking social network service.

The premise is very similar to Foursquare or Facebook’s Places, but instead of checking in to a location, you “check in” the beer that you’re currently drinking. You have the option of including your location too, if you’re into that sort of thing, and you can also simultaneously publish your beers to Facebook. Like a lot of apps these days, Untappd grants achievements as you “progress” in your beer-drinking, with everything from a badge for adding your first beer to the “Top of the Mornin'” badge for having at least five beers before noon.

It’s a pretty cool service, and a fun way to keep track of all the beer you drink. Also, it’s a good way to tell if you’ve perhaps been imbibing a bit too much and should maybe lay off for a few days.

If you decide to give it a try, I’d love to be part of your beer drinking social network: Friend me on Untappd
