The SokoLocal App Lets You Shop Local Beer All in One Place
The SokoLocal app allows you to search, find and purchase beers from local breweries right from the comfort of your own phone.
By The Beer Community on Jul. 06, 2021
The days of asking “where can I find this beer in…?” are over.
Imagine you’re scrolling through your favourite app (JustBeer, obviously.) and you’re checking out different beer styles or flavour profiles or finding out what beer you should drink according to your zodiac sign. You find a beer you like and then you think to yourself, “where can I find this beer in my city?” Well, look no further, young beer lover. We’ve got an app for that.
Find beer in your city with SokoLocal
SokoLocal is a new app that aims to support local businesses by making it easy to find and shop local products– including beer.
SokoLocal is a search engine that allows users to browse over 1.7 million products from local businesses around the world. The app features an array of categories, including craft breweries, local wine, beer and spirits. The app that launched in March 2021 (yes, you read the right. Launched in March 2021 and has over 1.7 million products.) creates a new way for shoppers and beer lovers to browse multiple locally-owned and operated shops and products all at once.
How SokoLocal Works
The app’s slogan “Search Soko, Buy Local” says it all! All you have to do is open the app (or browse online at www.sokolocal.com), select your city and search your favourite beer, wine or spirits. Or browse the “Craft Breweries” or “Beer, Wine and Spirits” categories!
Once you find the beer you’re looking for, SokoLocal links you to the retailer or breweries website for you to buy directly from the source, thus supporting local businesses without the hassle.
SokoLocal is completely free and doesn’t take a commission, cut of sale or charge any fees. And the best part is– you can nominate your favourite breweries to be listed on SokoLocal, too! The only catch: they have to have an online e-commerce site in order to be eligible for SokoLocal product search listings.
All in all, by using SokoLocal, you’re supporting local businesses and breweries in a big way, all while ending the day with 6-pack in your fridge. Who says you can’t have your beer and drink it, too?
So… what are you waiting for?
