The Perfect App For Utica On Tap
With over 95 different beers available to sample at this weekend’s Utica On Tap, how will you keep track of the ones you like and dislike? If you have a smart phone, no problem!
There is an app I just discovered called “Untapped.” This app is almost like a “Black Book” for beers. Let’s say you sample an IPA and you don’t really hit it off, you can use your digital “Black Book” to remind yourself to avoid that beer.
This is one of my favorite new apps. In addition to weeding out bad beers, you can remember and keep in touch with the beers you love most.
Let me give you a little tour of the app!
This is the screen you will get to if you tap the compass icon. This uses your location to let you know what beers are near you, what breweries are near you, where the best bars are for craft beer, and what the popular beer is in that area.
Here is the section of the app that will be most useful to you during the Utica on Tap event! When you try a new beer, you simply search the beer either by name or by brewery and check it in!
Once you’ve checked said beer in you can write yourself notes about it, rate it, and share your new favorite beer with friends on Facebook or Twitter! You can even include a photo of that beer, or a selfie of you enjoying it!
One of the coolest features of this app is the social aspect to it. You can send friend requests to your drinking buddies, so you can share new beers you’ve tried with them and find out what they’ve been drinking!
The Noon to 3 session is SOLD OUT, but there are a few tickets left for the 4pm-7pm session. Utica on Tap is presented by Pizza Boys in New York Mills. There will be live music and food vendors as well as countless beers from over 40 breweries. There is no excuse to miss these fantastic three hours of sampling. Get your tickets in advance and you can save $10. Just $30 for unlimited sampling. What a great deal! Tickets are $40 at the door and designated drivers pay just $10. With your ticket you get a souvenir sifter for all your sampling.
Don’t forget to download the “Untapped” app.
Utica On Tap is this Saturday, March 22nd @ The Stanley Theatre from 4-7
