Keeping with our mission to promote the breweries on the Charlottesville Ale Trail, we are thrilled to announce that you can now use Amazon Alexa to keep up to date with all the events happening at the breweries on the Ale Trail. Once you enable and open the Charlottesville Ale Trail skill, you can ask things like “Alexa, tell me what’s happening on the Charlottesville Ale Trail this weekend.” or “Alexa, are there events on the Ale Trail today?”
1) Ideally, you own an Alexa device, such as the Echo “Dot”, which is available for $59 (That’s the third generation, the second generation is very similar and sells for $30).
2) Open the Amazon Alexa app on your phone, search and enable the Charlottesville Ale Trail skill.
3) Speak to your Alexa device, “Alexa, open Charlottesville Ale Trail.”
4) You can then ask Alexa to inform you of the events happening on the Charlottesville Ale Trail today, tomorrow, this weekend, or on a specific date.
