Drinking Socially - The Official Untappd Podcast
Drinking Socially - Ep. 65: Xmas Beers & Season 2 Recap
We are drinking some "Christmas Beers" on this episode! The goal is sharing warm memories by the fireplace, learning about the Christmas Beer style, and what it's like to work in a brewery during the holiday season. Untappd launched version 3.4.9 which includes a brand new feature that makes checking in your brew much easier. We also share our 'Year in Beer' numbers and tease Season 3 of Drinking Socially, launching in January 2020!
What We’re Drinking
- ABV: 7.5%
- IBU: N/A
- Notes: A holiday ale brewed with honey and spiced with fresh ginger and cinnamon.
- At one point it outsold Budweiser in the state of Ohio during the month of December!
- ABV: 9.2%
- IBU: 55
- Notes: Brewed with baby ginger from Casselmonte Farm and wildflower honey from Bearer Farms, Hardywood Gingerbread Stout captures the terroir of central Virginia in a rich, creamy libation with a velvety mouthfeel and an intriguing evolution of flavors from milk chocolate and vanilla to honeycomb and cinnamon to a snap of ginger in the finish
- The only time Jon ever gets this beer is when his Virginia friend comes by for Xmas and remembers that Jon loves this beer.

- Version 3.4.9
- In our opinion, this may be the biggest Untappd update of 2019!
- Floating Action Button:
- Untappd listens to user feedback. To make the check-in process easier for Untappd users (especially new users) we implemented a Floating Action Button (commonly referred to as FAB) that sits nicely on the main tabs within the app. We love this new feature!
- Updated Profile Histogram
- Based on feedback we received from our 3.4.8 release, we have made improvements to the profile histogram to bring back a more individualized visual representation of a users breakdown of beer ratings.
- Updated Tab Bar Icons with Text
- To make the app more easy to understand, we have changed the tab bar to include new icons and wording below them.
