How To Claim Your Brewery Business

Claiming your brewery on Untappd is fairly easy. First, you must attempt to search for your brewery on the Untappd website from a desktop, laptop, or tablet device. You cannot search for your business using the app or any device that uses a small screen for navigation. Start searching for your brewery here. If your brewery isn’t found, then contact Untappd here.

Once you’ve found your brewery, then look for a blue button on the page that says “Claim This Brewery.” Click the button to begin the claiming process. If you instead see a blue star next to your brewery, then someone has already claimed it. You should contact Untappd support here to inquire about or dispute this claim. Otherwise, confirm your request on the next screen by selecting “Yes, continue” to proceed.

Next, you will see a form that needs to be filled out with basic contact details about you and your brewery. When signing up, you should use a primary email account that you monitor closely. This will ensure that important notices and customer feedback are received and addressed promptly. After the form is accurately completed, click “Submit Request” to advance.

Upon receiving your brewery claiming request, the Untappd staff will reach out to you directly to confirm your identity and verify that you’re the true business owner. They will assist you with finalizing your account so that you can begin logging in to manage your profile, add beers, view insights, and engage with your customers.

Each time a customer checks in, their activities are logged by Untappd and users can be awarded various badges as marks of achievement or participation.
