Time truly does fly when you’re having fun. And when you’re enjoying excellent beer. These past three years really have been a blur of hard work, growing, and excitement. Next Tuesday, October 22nd, marks our 3 year anniversary here at Untappd. It’s really hard to believe it’s been that long. I know that’s the same thing we said at two years, but every year it seems to ring true. What started as a random idea, has become one of, if not the most active, mobile beer communities out there. Of course Greg and I (Tim) put a lot of blood, sweat and sleepless nights into building, expanding and maintaining the service, but it’s truly the community that keeps Untappd what it is. Be it through simply checking in, recommending the app to friends, or even purchasing a supporter account, everything helps us grow and continues to prove to us why it is we keep working at it. For this, we thank you!
Starting on October 22nd, we’ll be introducing our Untappd 3rd Anniversary badge, which you can unlock with a simple check in between Tuesday the 22nd and Sunday the 27th. Show your love for Untappd by raising a toast to three years of drinking socially and you’ll unlock this great badge!
Additionally, if you haven’t heard, co-founder Greg will be hosting a 3rd anniversary party at The Pony Bar in NYC on October 22nd at 7PM. There will be a custom tap list, free stickers and a chance to win 1 of 10, $20 gift cards to The Pony Bar! You can find more details at http://unatappd3rdnyc.eventbrite.com. For those of you in the LA area, we’re working on getting a party together and will provide you more info as soon as we figure it out.
Again, we truly want to thank the community, the breweries, and all the great beer in the world for helping make Untappd what it is today!
