About the Project
It is hard to believe, but it’s been 10 years of discovering, sharing and checking in...it’s been 10 years of Untappd! What started as a way to keep track of all those craft beers sampled, has since turned into a passionate community of beer drinkers around the world.
With Untappd’s 10th anniversary falling in unprecedented times, we did what craft beer lovers do best... we expanded our palate and decided to honor the occasion in a whole new way.
Together with our friends at Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, we’re bringing you I Remember My First Check-In, a unique sour beer that celebrates connectivity of the craft beer community. As long standing sour beer producers, Dogfish Head has created a sour beer base that’s been crafted to support the entire craft beer ecosystem - from farmers growing ingredients, to artisans brewing beer, to favorite local bartenders offering the perfect pour, to Untappd users “checking-in” a new beer for the first time.
I Remember My First Check-In is a celebration of where we’ve been as a craft beer community, and where we are going.
We invite brewers from near and far to join us in creating their own version of I Remember My First Check-In. Utilizing the sour beer base recipe crafted by Dogfish Head, each brewery should put their own spin on the recipe by looking to local farmers and purveyors in their area (within 100 mi)
I Remember My First Check-In
We are asking that all participating breweries utilize the label provided. The artwork has been provided by Untappd. There is space to include your brewery’s logo. Questions regarding labels can be directed to: [email protected]
Getting the Word Out
This project is a celebration of the entire craft beer ecosystem from the growers and farmers, to breweries, to hospitality workers and the community of Untappd users/consumers who drink the beer. Please help us in supporting the industry by using #myfirstcheckin to spread the word.
Don’t forget to check-in your beers on your Untappd App for access to a special edition 10th Anniversary Badge!
Join the Project
Utilizing the base recipe as a starting point, each participating brewery is asked to produce a sour style beer that includes at least one ingredient from a local grower or producer within 100 miles of their brewery.
Beer releases can start anytime after October 18th, 2020 and Untappd will be promoting these releases through the in-app Discovery Page.
Questions regarding the recipe, cause or label can be directed to: [email protected]
For Beer Drinkers
There is a lot of work done behind the scenes to make that delicious beer you are drinking. The craft beer ecosystem consists of farmers and growers within the agricultural industry, breweries and hospitality workers, distributors, retailers and wholesalers all working toward one goal - getting you delicious beer!
By purchasing a version of I Remember My First Check-In you are directly supporting the entire craft beer industry.
Celebrate the Untappd community with us from the comfort of your own home in our 10th Anniversary Virtual Party, hosted by our Founder and CCO, Greg Avola, on Saturday, October 24th from 3pm-6pm EST.
Enjoy your brew while you walk down memory lane with us. We’ll have giveaways, release of special edition merchandise, artist badge competition unveiling, live music, collaboration beer tastings, and so much more.

Thank You from Our Founder
Since we launched on Oct 22, 2010, we have been floored by the positive reaction to Untappd from the community.
Many people ask us, "how did you create this community of Untappd fans?", when in reality, they already existed, we just cultivated this together with technology and services.
In our eyes, our commitment to our community always comes first. As our core value is surprise and delight users, we have listed, innovated, and engaged to help build the products that affect the beer industry in a positive way.
Untappd has changed my life over the last 10 years, and while we have an amazing team of employees that work tireless to bring the best products to you, we all wouldn't be here without you, the community and the breweries who make the beer.
So thank you Sam & Dogfish Head for the commitment to their craft and helping us bring this project to light and the thousands of breweries out there making amazing beers for the community to join. We are all in this together, and we're thankful for everyone's support.
Here's to the next 10 years!
Sincerely, Greg Avola
