Untappd and Dogfish Head Craft Brewery invite you to join us for our 10th Anniversary Virtual Party! This celebration is a free global event open to all beer lovers hosted by Greg Avola, Untappd's Founder.
We'll feature guided tastings from a select few of the "I Remember My First Check-In" beers, reminisce on some fan-favorite beers over the last decade, host interviews with industry favorites, and long-time users of the platform, and kick back with some beer to enjoy a set from a special musical guest!
Greg wraps up the celebrations and takes questions from our viewers at home. Have you always wondered how he came up with the idea behind the app? Want to know what his favorite beer is? Are you still not convinced that he doesn’t have a personal vendetta against the letter E? Now is the time to ask away!

Through today, that business has blossomed into a full time cocktail creative where Jon and Lindsay are shaping the way people drink not only in the south but internationally as well by bringing in new products, training bartenders on regions, culture and more. PourTaste hosts the annual Nashville Cocktail Festival and Cheers Huntsville cocktail centered festival in Alabama.
