Beer App Untappd Hits 1M Check-ins, Swallows Up Other Beer App RedPint

“Foursquare for beer” Untappd is announcing its one millionth checkin today, in addition to the acqi-hire of other niche beer checkin app RedPint, an iPhone app co-created by founders John Vajda and Alicia Benjamin.

Said Untappd co-founders Tim Mather and Greg Avola in a blog post,”As with many craft breweries, collaboration is one of the best ways to benefit the community and it is with this merger that we will be able to dedicate more time and resources to continue to build and cultivate Untappd.”

Through the web app Untappd, which has been around since 2010, users have the ability to check in to niche beers with their friends and share their checkins to Twitter, Facebook and Foursquare. The RedPint acquisition means that the creation of native iPhone and Android apps is shortly on the horizon, and should be completed by the end of this year.

For any curious alcoholics, the one millionth beer checked into was a  Censored (aka The Kronic) by Lagunitas.
