Drinking With Forkly

It seems another eisydxmm has arrived to distract you at the bar, and Forkly will certainly do just that. We have written before about the beveragistas and their check-in obsessions, and how sometimes it’s good to keep your phone in your pocket. However, we still want to let people know when we find something good, or when we don’t care for something.

Not only does Forkly have a slick layout for documenting your tastebud’s adventures (drink + food)- it’s just plain simple to use. The rating scale consists of ‘Love’, ‘Like’, and ‘Not For Me’, so no need on pondering whether your cocktail is 4 or 5 stars (which is great because I tend to get confused on pulling the trigger at the bar when the average rating on some other site is 3.82 beer mugs). As you taste more things, a “taste graph” is created, providing suggestions on other things you may want.

Perhaps the coolest feature is the ability to “want” items your friends taste. Need to remember what beer your friend was drinking at that bottle share party next time you walk into Argonaut? No problem, just pull up your Wants and there ya go. A documented list of stuff you want to try is a pretty cool thing to have, especially when you drink a lot. This feature also plays into users becoming “influencers”, by collecting wants from awesome tastes they post.

We talked to the folks over at Great Divide and they had this to say: “We couldn’t be more excited about Forkly’s debut. Beer is meant to be shared and Forkly offers users a unique opportunity to bridge the gap between real-time experience and social media. Especially in today’s culture, where the marriage of beer and food is gaining so much legitimacy, Denver’s new app wunderkind is a perfect way to hone your tastes, try new things and enjoy these pairings like never before.”

We are pretty excited about Forkly, and getting to use our tastebuds more.
