Dogfish Head Hazy-O!

Helloooooo Hazy-O! Our latest off-centered innovation is now available coast-to-coast!

Brewed with truckloads of oats and wheat for a full body, Hazy-O! is then liberally dry-hopped to deliver juicy tropical notes of citrus, mango and pineapple! But the real star is our secret ingredient ... oats! This Hazy IPA uses four (yes, four!) types of oats. And you might be thinking, "why so many oats?" Each does something a little different for your sipping experience...

Sierra Nevada Big Little Thing

Fresh to Sierra Nevada's lineup, Big Little Thing takes Imperial IPA to a new level: at 9% ABV, it has a smooth malt body and mega-tropical hops, yet its sweetness is tame and the finish is clean. Big? No doubt. Drinkable? Ohhh yes.

The brewers go all out with the mash, then dry-hop a lot. And dry-hopping during active fermentation sparks biotransformation: yeast cells alter the chemical compounds in hops to unlock entirely new aromas—like the notes of mango, grapefruit, and tangerine billowing from Big Little Thing.

Now with The Little Things, you can choose your own adventure. Feeling Hazy? Wild? Or is it time to go Big?

Sierra Nevada Wanderland Nectarine Ale (Source: Sierra Nevada Instagram)

Sierra Nevada's newest seasonal is a Kolsch-style ale loaded with juicy nectarine. And while Wanderland is easy-drinking, its sizable 7.5% ABV stands up to chilly days. So if winter's got you weary, here's a golden sunset of a beer to turn things around. The aroma teases various stone fruits; the medium body is soft and smooth; and the nectarine burst is backed by Crystal, Mosaic, and Azacca hops.

The Next Chapter

Responsive image

Today Chief Creative Officer Greg Avola has announced he will step away from the day-to-day managing of community activities at Untappd to pursue other interests. Greg will continue to serve Untappd in the role of Executive Advisor role at Next Glass (Untappd's parent company), advising Trace Smith, CEO, on Untappd community matters.

"The birth of my second son in December opened my eyes," said Greg, "I decided I really wanted more time to be with my growing family."

It was ten years ago that Greg and co-founder Tim Mather created Untappd as a way for beer lovers to share information about the beers – new and old -  they were enjoying on the beer scene. "I remember that summer ten years' ago very vividly," said Greg, "We decided to build an app that connects people from different worlds around beer."

Welcome back, ol' pal. You're listening to Season 4 of Drinking Socially. So what's new around here? This season we're covering more core badges, more games and shenanigans, interviewing more guests, highlighting more verified venues and more. Today we're starting with the most basic, easy, boring badge on Untappd — the one we all have — the Newbie! Grab a pint and listen to Harrison and I try to remember the past! Join our Facebook Group, connect with Jon & Harrison on Twitter, and catch us on Spotify, Apple, Stitcher, YouTube, and anywhere you listen to podcasts.

Super Wild Card Weekend Review Meets Untappd Data

Responsive image

Just eight teams remain as we enter the Divisional Round of the NFL playoffs. If you were like me, you were parked in front of the television all weekend with a good brew in hand! This week's article is a bit different from the regular season recaps, as we will see if the winners from Super Wild Card Weekend also won on the Untappd gridiron. Of course, we'll still touch on the top stadium for the week as well as your check-ins!

Reality vs. Untappd

Only three cities had fewer check-ins than its average from the regular season, so overall, for playoff teams, check-ins were up! There was a lot of good football over the weekend to enjoy and from the check-ins I was tagged in, a lot of delicious beverages were consumed! Let's dive in and see how these teams fared on the field, as well as on the Untappd gridiron.

NFL Week 17 In Review Meets Untappd Data

Responsive image

And just like that, the regular season has come to a close. There were a few COVID-19 related hiccups, but ultimately, 256 games were played with no cancellations. Now, we turn our eyes to the playoffs, where the final 14 teams will battle it out for the Lombardi Trophy. Will the winner on the field win on the Untappd gridiron? Time will tell.

To determine this, we will see which city (10 mile radius around the stadium) has the largest increase in check-ins compared to their season average. This levels the playing field and will give us a better idea as to which team actually won the matchup on the Untappd gridiron. Ultimately, whichever team has the larger increase, or smaller decrease, will move on to the next round.

Fun Facts From 2020 Season

Here are some fun facts from the 2020 NFL regular season through an Untappd lens:

  • Over the course of the regular season, nine different stadiums led at least one week in total check-ins.
  • The NFC South was the only division to have each team lead at least one week in check-ins at the stadium.
  • The four teams (Chiefs, Browns, Colts & Saints) that led at least two weeks in check-ins at the stadium all made the playoffs, and combined for a record of 48-16.
  • Based on your check-ins that you tagged me in, the strongest fan representation was from the Green Bay Packers, Chicago Bears, Kansas City Chiefs and New York Jets.
  • Since the start of the season, nearly 6,000 check-ins included the football emoji!
