WILMINGTON, N.C., Nov. 12, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Untappd, the leading global social media app for beer and breweries, today announced a partnership with SevenRooms, a fully-integrated, data-driven guest experience platform for the hospitality industry, to provide restaurants, bars and breweries with the tools needed to operate safely.

We are excited to complete this partnership to be part of the solution for restaurants and bars everywhere.”
