One time at work, I had a conversation with my co-worker about beer. He insisted that people only drink beer to get drunk, and not at all for the taste. I told him how false that is, and argued that the reason there are dark beers and light beers and microbreweries is because people have different tastes and preferences when it comes to beer. I completely schooled him. Clearly he is not a craft beer enthusiast like myself. I asked him what his favorite beer is, and he said Heineken. Need I say more?
Speaking of craft beer, I recently started an account on Untappd, an awesome website/app that I must share with my blog followers, and the world. It combines two things that I dearly love: social media and beer. Untappd allows you to share the different beers you drink, and helps you to discover new ones to try!
You create a profile online, and then download the app to your smartphone. Each time you drink a craft beer, you update your profile with the name of the beer, the brewery that makes it, where you’re drinking it (if you’re out at a bar/restaurant/brewery), and your rating. You can also upload a picture of the beer as well!
Those you’re friends with on Untappd can “cheers” you and comment on your status updates. You also earn badges based on the types of beers you drink – and who doesn’t love getting rewards for drinking? You can also browse top rated beers if you’re looking for a new beer to try! I highly recommend it 🙂
