Bozeman Restaurants and Bars Use Technology in New Ways (And Offer Free Drinks!)
Wednesday May. 15th, 2019
With over 200 restaurants and eateries in Bozeman, MT, locals and tourists have many options and bars and restaurants are continuously looking to earn diner’s business. Known as a rapidly growing tech town, even the restaurant industry is incorporating technology and getting creative.
How? A new mobile phone app called SWIG406. Launched in 2018, SWIG406 is a mobile phone app that was created to help Montanans and tourists alike explore Montana and experience the bars and restaurants that make their travelling adventures delicious.
As you travel the state, SWIG406 will show you the closest participating tavern to you. The app is free to download but if you wish to experience a free drink at each location, you can subscribe to the app for just $5 per month. That subscription provides you a free libation at each of the participating taverns across the state.
Some of the early adopters in the Bozeman area include: The Club Tavern & Grill, Rocking R Bar and The Cannery. Each offers a FREE alcoholic beverage once a month, all included in the $5 per month app subscription.
‘We’re excited to partner with SWIG406 and offer this to our regulars and folks traveling through Montana. It’s a fun way for customers to try new drinks on our menu and a new way for us to leverage technology. Patrons must be within 650 feet of the restaurant to redeem their Free Drink and Swig406 has done a great job of making the app easy to use’, says Arkinda Mickelson, The Club Tavern & Grill Restaurant Food and Beverage Manager.
To kick-off the partnership, The Club Tavern & Grill will be giving away free subscriptions to the app in the month of May on social media, in the restaurant and more.
SWIG406 bars and restaurants can also add events and parties, helping travelers make plans to explore Montana. And each time SWIG406 users mark a bar as a favorite, they will be sent notifications when that establishment adds a new event. With the hashtag #LocalDrinksatLocalBars, SWIG406 promotes Montana-crafted beverages and the establishments that serve them.
The Swig406 app can be downloaded on iTunes and Google Play. Learn more at: www.swig406.com
