Yelp Taipei is hosting their monthly beer day next Wednesday at Venture Lab, and anyone — including non-Yelp users — are welcome to join in on the boozing. That being said, those who check in on Yelp app on their smartphones the day of the event will receive a free drink.

The Web site and smartphone app which allows users to rate local businesses, including restaurants, bars and even convenience stores such as Family Mart, on a one to five star rating system, frequently throws offline parties and events. In the past, attendees have gone shrimping, learned how to pick coffee beans and got decked in retro-wear for a ‘90s themed party.

According to Yelp Taipei’s community manager Roxanne Lo, the purpose of these events is to build an offline community and make friends in the real world, rather than solely interacting online. Not to mention, there’s usually a steady flow of beer at these gatherings.
