We’ve all done it before. You come home with beer you want cold, or you pull something from the cellar you want to cool down a bit. The question – is when is it cold enough. Or, for those that are easily distracted, put a beer in the freezer – only for it to meet an explosive end.
That’s where Beerometer comes in. You tell it what you are chilling where it is going, and the app will either send a text, email you, even Tweet you. And it’s all yours from $1.99 [iTunes]
If you’re out and about this week for Gnome Week, be sure you download this iPhone/Android app. It will bring the the Chouffe gnomes to life. Design firm Anthem Worldwide created the campaign for Belgian brewery Brasserie d’Achouffe . The Little Gnome App has built in the “augmented reality” by company Aurasma, allowing Chouffe fans to point the app at a Gnome Week coaster, triggering special animations.
Don’t delete the app week Gnome Week is over. More animations will be added to the application this year, when pointed at posters or bottles of the beer. The week culminates this Saturday at 6:66pm (aka 7:06 pm) with the world’s tiniest toast. Check out the app at work below.
Victory Brewing will launch two things that will sure to delight beer lovers. Eclat Cocoa Lager, and a phone app for Android & iPhone. The phone will be free of course, and will keep you up to date with news about the brewery, where to find the beers, & more.
“When Ron and I first started Victory Brewing Company, we registered one email address for all business-specific email,” said Bill Covaleski, President and Brewmaster of Victory Brewing Company. “Back then, only serious businesses needed e-mail addresses. What could we possibly need with more than one?”
“I believe we are ready to enter the 21st century now.” Bill said.
Look for the application in the Android & Apple stores around the 2/15.

The number of Untappd users seems to multiply daily, and many users suggestions to the developers were that they wanted to checkin without the smartphone. Great for home drinkers. If you choose to check in online, you will not have the ability to add your location and share on Foursquare. Still mobile site only.
– Recently, Untappd added a simple 1-5 rating system. Click the stars “Itunes” style.
– A homebrew distinction was added to the the Untappd system. Now when you add a homebrew, you can designate it as such.
Everyone loves a good beer crawl. New locations, new beer lists; there’s nothing to not like – other than maybe the walking, but a little exercise is also good. That said, we’ve got some fun new badges to help encourage you to explore different bars. We know it can be scary leaving the usual watering hole, but there’s a whole world of beer bars out there just waiting for you!
First up, we’ve teamed up with Ladies of Craft Beer to bring you two badges:
Ladies of Craft Beer is pleased and excited to be joining forces with Untappd to create two new badges.
LadiesOCB was created with the mission to encourage people (women specifically, but men also) to try craft beer and to learn more about it. Our website, www.ladiesocb.com, includes posts from women who enjoy all aspects of craft beer, including reviews, news, recipes, and homebrewing tips, all of which are an online resource to spread our passion for and joy of craft beer.
The two new badges, “East Coast Brew Crawl” and “West Coast Brew Crawl” were created to encourage users to explore their local craft beer bars. In order to gain these badges, one must check in to at least five venues that have been hand selected by the members of LadiesOCB. While you can still earn a check-in towards the badge at your local hang out (as long as it’s on the list), LadiesOCB encourages you to get out there and try new bars either in your area or while traveling.
For a full list of the qualifying venues, check out http://ladiesocb.com/from-the-editor/ladiesocb-badges-on-untappd/. Be sure to tweet us @LadiesOCB and @untappd when you check in – maybe a LadiesOCB member will be able to join you!
Next, we are proud to announce that we’ve teamed up with Thrillist Rewards to offer a badge for their upcoming East Village Craft Beer Crawl reward. The East Village is well known for their bar scene, so it’s no surprise that there is a great selection amazing craft beer bars. Even if you won’t be participating in the official crawl event, this badge is open to anyone who wants to explore at least five of the following East Village bars:
- Billy Hurricane’s
- Croxley Ale House
- Destination Bar
- Drop Off Service
- Good Beer
- Idle Hands
- Jimmy’s No 43
- Octavia’s Porch
- Professor Thom’s
- Zum Schneider
An official crawl map can be found here: http://untpd.it/evilmap
On a slightly different note, we will also be introducing the Untappd Groupie badge. As the Founders, we are building Untappd as a tool to not only help the community, but to help us. We are constantly learning and exploring the beer world as a result of creating Untappd. As a fun twist, in order to achieve this badge, you must check-in to at least 5 different beers that the founders have had.
That’s it from us! Cheers!
