Southend Brewery beer tasting: there’s an app for that. It’s called Untappd and it’s main purpose is to “socially share the brew you’re currently enjoying, as well as where you’re enjoying it, with your friends.” It’s like a virtual pub crawl. A live feed shares pictures and reviews of beers that people are drinking-right now- all over the country. There’s a website and an app, plugged into Facebook, Foursquare and Twitter. Log in, search for your location, and see who’s drinking what nearby. You might even finds some friends at a bar down the block drinking a cool new beer.

We love it here at Southend! Southend Brewery microbrews have been extensively drank and reviewed on the Untappd app. Beer drinkers have tried our six year-round beer choices and a variety of our seasonal brews. This app is awesome, it lists the beer name, brew style, and gravity level. Each one of our flavors can be found on Untappd, including Brewmaster Ahren Wharf’s latest creation, Toasted Coconut Porter. If you like the beer you’re drinking, Untappd also gives you a few similar suggestions and directs you where to find it.

With the Charleston microbrewery community growing, this app gives beer geeks and beer lovers a sneak peek at the new beer on tap complete with an educated, unbiased opinion.

Untappd Creator Greg Avola says, “The beer community is passionate and as we’re learning, it spans the globe. Much like any other topic, social media is an amazing way for all of these beer enthusiasts to come together and share their thoughts, opinions and exchange beer related information. Additionally, many craft beer bars tend to change up what they’re carrying regularly, so social media allows for them to easily tell their patrons and keep people informed of what’s rotating on tap.”

If you make your way to Southend for a pre or post Christmas cold one, share it with Untappd! We love to hear what you think about our beers. It just takes a minute to sign up.

And- HAPPY HOLIDAYS from Southend!
