James Williams and his father, Ryan Williams, are the creators of a new app called GYDO-Get Your Drink On.

Ever wanted to buy your buddy a drink to celebrate their birthday or anniversary but aren’t there to take them to the bar? GYDO-Get Your Drink On, a local Carpinteria-based company, hopes to solve that quandary.

“We have basically digitized the age-old concept of being able to buy a friend a beer,” said creator Ryan Williams. “We wanted to find a way to connect with our friends on a more intimate level than a simple Facebook ‘like’ or ‘thumbs up’ to celebrate their engagement or job promotion. Now, anyone anywhere in the world simply finds a participating venue, selects the drink, and tags their friend. Their friend gets a QR code, which they present to the server to dispense the drink.”

The official launch party for GYDO was held at Island Brewing Company. IBC has been the beta test venue over the last six months for the app. To learn more about GYDO, visit gydo.me.
