Rob from Better Beer Society shot us a line to let us know that BBS is partnering with Uber, a new “on-demand” car service that just launched in the Twin Cities. Rob says he’s used it twice now, and that it’s “pretty badass and might change the way you look at calling a cab.” Users can request a car via their smartphone or text, which seems rather handy while under the influence of one too many barleywines… They usually arrive in under 5 minutes, and no money exchanges hands.
BBS & Uber are offering MNBeer geeks a free ride. Perhaps this could come in handy with Winterfest this weekend? Just download the app on your smartphone, and use the code “BBSMSP” which is good for a $20 ride anywhere in the city. (www.uber.com)
