Watching You Drink Beer

I noticed that many people on Twitter publish when they use the Untappd.com application. This app allows a user to “check-in” when they drink beer. They get badges, the dates and times of their drinking is noted, and many times the geographic location of where they drank is also available…..all with no authentication! Woohoo!

So I wondered if I could patch together some Python to scrape the Untappd.com web site for a given user and then do some analytics on their drinking habits. Stuff like:

  • What time of day do they drink most often?
  • What day of the week do they drink most often?
  • What day of the month do they drink most often?
  • Who do they drink with?
  • Where do they drink?
  • Are they “binge” drinking?

Caveat

Since this script scrapes the public pages (private Untappd profiles are not scraped) without using the Untappd API and without requiring login, it only has access to the last 25 beers a target has consumed. While this doesn’t sound like a lot when some of these users have noted they have drunk thousands of beers, we can learn many things from 25 beers. And what if you ran this script every week (or day!)? Could you store all the data about a specific person on a rolling basis? Yup!

Usage

Grab the code for this from https://github.com/WebBreacher/untappdScraper and you should be good (no 3rd party libraries for running).

$  python untapped.py -h
usage: untapped.py [-h] -u USER

Grab Untappd user activity

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -u USER, --user USER  Username to research

Example

$ python untappd.py -u nvrhapy
