Taphouse and the social media app "Untappd" partner for GABS
The Local Taphouse and Untappd have joined forces to celebrate the inaugural Great Australia Beer SpecTAPular (GABS) by creating a special edition badge for attendees. When you check into a beer at either venue this Saturday you will receive the GABS 2011 badge to signify that you were at the inaugural GABS! This is the first time an Untappd badge has been created for any event outside of the US.
What is Untappd?
Untappd is a fun new mobile, web application that enables beer drinkers to track, share, and discover beers, beer-drinking establishments and feedback about beers with friends and other beer-drinking enthusiasts.
Users can share the beer they are enjoying, add the location where they are enjoying it, and share this with their network of friends. In response, friends can comment on or toast these beers. This interaction allows users to discover different beers outside of their normal drinking preferences, as well as different places to enjoy those beers.
To get started, all you need to do is point your mobile device to http://untappd.com and grab your favourite brew!
