UPDATE: The “Big News” is Untappd is putting on a festival in NC. *yawn*
I shouldn’t be so curious about it (although I do like writing about Untappd), but Untappd is about to make a big announcement. They have been hyping it for days.
More than the time they got bought out, even. The folks at Untappd are excited about this, so it must be good, yes?
They did have one of their co-founders leave recently and that makes me nervous. Like, “We got him out of the way, now we can finally do that thing he thought was dumb!”
So what the hell is it?! Here are five theories out there.
Untappd Is Getting Bought By The Evil Empire, ABinBev.
Like I said, they’ve already been bought-out so I can’t imagine it being that. I do worry that it could be some sort of Big Beer related partnership, though. Please no. Just…no.

Major App Update.
Yes, of course, but what will be in the update? Would they be making a big deal like this over a new feature? That would be lame. Letting you send pics in your DMs would not be announcement worthy.
In fact, a handful of new features is not hype-worthy too me either.
Untappd Buys-out Another Thing.
This could be it. Credit @beardedbrewer87 for this idea. They buy another social app that gives Untappd a whole other level of … social, stuff.
Lord don’t let it be that they bought a wine check-in app and now you can check booze and wine too. We might riot.
Boring. If this is it that is so boring. Beer festivals are fine but not fine enough to hype it up in this way. Pretzel necklaces are not everything.
Dude, I like badges as much as the next user but if this is all about badges then screw you guys. In fact, there had better at least be a “Got Screwed” badge, if this is just about badges. We don’t need no stinkin’ badges.
Clueless In Fresno
I am going with an update to the app that adds a major feature. What that is I have no idea.
We’ll see as they announce it at 1o:00 AM PST.
