Detour App Adds Beervana Tour Narrated By Art Larrance
Recently I had the opportunity to test out a new beer-oriented audio tour from the Detour App. The app was created by former Groupon Founder and CEO, Andrew Mason. I was interested in checking out this app because I am a former employee of Mason's at Groupon. And of course, I love beer and tech. Detour recently granted me access to their beta of a new tour, The Pearl: Building Beervana. The tour is narrated by Portland Brewing Co-founder and craft beer legend, Art Larrance. If you don't know Art Larrance he always has a good story to tell. Over the past 30+ years, he has not only witnessed but participated in the growth of the craft beer industry through Portland Brewing, Oregon Brewers Festival and more recently Cascade Brewing.
The audio tour combines Larrance's narrative while your phone's GPS is leverage along with the app to guide you follow along.
The Detour app is free to download from the Apple Store or Google Play, but this particular tour will run you $4.99.
