Friend, let me ask you a question….Have you ever had an exciting announcement you wanted to share with your friends and family? Well of course you have!

But, do you always get to share it with everyone you want to?

Your friend is holed up at work…your other friend is well just too busy. Your family live in another country. Or some other god forsaken reason always ends up spoiling that special moment. 
That’s life?
Maybe. But, not anymore!

GYDO – Get Your Drink On – is a revolutionary app that allows you to gift anyone – a friend, a special someone, a confidante – a drink of your choice at any winery, brewery or taproom, anywhere, anytime.

How many times have you missed a birthday celebration because of prior commitments? Ever missed an engagement or work party before? Of course you have! Sometimes we just can’t make it. But now you can gift your friend a glass of wine or a craft beer at their favorite winery or brewery with the tap of a button.

GYDO recently partnered with Apple and Google Pay so now, as long as the winery or brewery accepts Apple or Google Pay, you can gift your friend a drink at this winery, brewery or tap room.

Did you know there are over 5000 venues in the USA alone accepting Apple and or Google Pay.

And, here’s the kicker – you can gift a drink to them anywhere in the world. Literally, anywhere!

Seriously? How Does It Work?

Gifting a drink to someone you know is as simple as 1, 2, 3.
It’s that simple. With GYDO, you get to share your favorite drink with the person you want and celebrate your moment with them.

And, It All Began in a Sleepy Surf Town in Southern California

GYDO is the brainchild of Ryan Williams, a resident of Carpinteria, CA, a small surf town just north of Los Angeles. The Carp locals enjoy socializing at their local wineries and breweries. Ryan can often be found sampling the joys of an IPA near the Pacific Coast Railway Tracks at a small brewery called Island Brewing Company.  As an expat, Ryan missed his family and friends back in South Africa. And that is why Ran created GYDO Get Your Drink On mobile App. To share in that special moment; a birthday, job promotion or even an engagement is not easy when you are half way around the world.  As a techie, Ryan wanted to change that! Truth be told his family should be buying him brews at his local for his birthday instead of a boring Facebook Happy Birthday post.

Well, it did. He did!

With a small group of highly motivated individuals, Ryan founded GYDO | Get Your Drink On mobile app. The early response was phenomenal. Everyone involved in his startup had friends and families across the world, who loved the idea of gifting drinks to each other. The app’s usage and traffic were on fire.
The team quickly launched their apps on iOS and Android platforms and made them available for the general public. GYDO is a social gifting platform connecting wineries and breweries with consumers all over the world.
