NEW BADGE: World Cider Day (2024)

Responsive image

Cider is as old as the apple trees John Chapman (better known as Johnny Appleseed) tended to in America in the early nineteenth century. Actually, this fermented apple beverage has roots that go back even further. As the story goes, when the Romans invaded England around 55 BCE, they discovered Celts already enjoying cider. 

Apple trees had already been introduced in Europe and Asia, but the English, French, and Spanish perfected the art of fermenting this ruby-fleshed fruit. 

Today considered a favorite beverage in many countries, from Japan to America to Spain, cider can be enjoyed in alcoholic and non-alcoholic forms. In most countries, though, cider automatically means the boozy version. At the same time, in the United States, there is a specific distinction between cider (straight-up unfiltered apple juice) and "hard" cider (apple juice with an ABV). 

From dry to juicy to herbed, spiced, and hopped to sweet and even rosé, hard cider runs the entire gamut of flavor and aroma. 

And people love cider! Coinciding with the modern craft beer movement, cideries have exploded globally. In fact, last year alone, drinks in the "Cider - Traditional" category notched an incredible 2 million check-ins on the app. 

However you drink your apples in a glass, celebrate this World Cider Day on June 3, 2024, with one of the globe's tastiest and most historical drinks. 

And once you get your cider, the only thing left to do is check it in…

To earn Untappd's newest "World Cider Day 2024" badge, drink and check in any one (1) beverage with the style of Cider, including Non-Alcoholic Cider / Perry, between June 1 and 3, 2024.

Who knows, maybe a cider a day does keep the doctor away? Let's find out!

New Badge: Saison Day (2024)

Responsive image

Hoppy Saison Day!

While the official day commences tomorrow, we are getting the party started today with the release of the epic Saison Day (2024) badge. 

These beers originated on farms throughout the South of Belgium, also known as the French-speaking Wallonia region. Brewed seasonally (saison is a French word that translates to season) during colder months, saisons are aged and enjoyed in the summertime.

These small producers made beer with ingredients they had on hand or available locally. Grains included wheat, rye, spelt, and others in addition to barley.

Over time, expectations developed for what defines a saison. A variety of grains, both raw and malted, adds to the spicy, rustic quality of the drinking experience. The Belgian yeast imparts a distinct peppery flavor with a bit of fruit.

They're usually quite crisp and effervescent, with a dry finish that keeps you coming back for another sip.

Shoutout to Allgash Brewing, who started the official Saison Day holiday to help celebrate this beloved style just a little more every year.

How to earn: Check-in any Farmhouse Ale - Saison from April 26 to April 28 to unlock this annual badge.

New Badge: Bock Beer Day (2024)

Responsive image

Every March 20th, take a step back in history by drinking a traditional German bock on National Bock Beer Day. 

Dating back to the Medieval era, this dark lager was initially brewed in the northern town of Einbeck, Germany, during the fourteenth century. 

When the bock traveled south to Munich during the seventeenth century, the subtle differences in language meant that Bavarians started to mispronounce the beer from Einbeck as ein bock. 

That word in German literally translates to billy goat. 

The name stuck, and so did the image of the animal, which you'll find on many bock labels to this day. 

One might be tempted to say this beer style is the…GOAT.  

So, What Exactly Is a Bock?
