Frequently asked Questions

The Micropub App is a mobile platform which we hope is pretty intuitive to use. However, if you do have a user query, this FAQ page will hopefully answer your questions. 


Please contact us directly via email if you have a specific question

What is a Micropub?

The definition of a Micropub is subjective and open to debate. The Micropub Association define a Micropub as follows...'A Micropub is a small freehouse which listens to its customers, mainly serves cask ales, promotes conversation, shuns all forms of electronic entertainment and dabbles in traditional pub snacks.' That said, the Micropup App appreciates that Micropubs  and microbars do not always fully embrace all of the tenets of this definition. Therefore the App is for Micropubs and bars which are physically small in nature but big on community, conversation and quality beer.
