Untappd is a social networking service that allows its users to check into beers as they drink them, and share these check-ins and their locations with their friends.[2] Untappd also includes functionality that allows users to rate the beer they are consuming, earn badges, share pictures of their beers, and automatically suggests similar beverages.[3][4]

At present, Untappd can share checkins with Twitter and Facebook accounts of its users, and can pull in locations from Foursquare.
