New iPourIt beer walls at The Tap Shack! We’ve recently finished adding self-serve taps right at your table. Drinking your favorite craft beer has just become so very convenient!
After long hours of shooting.. we have come out with a very short 1-minute demo video that grasps the concept of how iPourIt works. The demo video is also accompanied with a 3-minute video starring our CEO; Joseph McCarthy, that dives deeper into how the system works. The videos can be found below and on Youtube.com.
iPourIt has recently completed the installation of a 12 tap self-serve beer wall at The Tap House in Huntington Beach. With iPourIt you only pay for what you pour and with a selection including an oatmeal porter and raspberry ShockTop, it is easy to try a little of each beer that you may have never tried before. This beer wall is the first self-serve iPourIt beer system in the world! Changing the world one tap at a time.
iPourIt is the recipient of the Cool Idea! award from Protolabs. After utilizing Protolab’s injection mold service, iPourIt submitted an application for the Cool Idea! award. A month later we have now been notified we won the award! We always knew this was a cool idea, but now we have an award that proves it! From the iPourIt team, we would like to thank Protolabs and everyone out there who thinks pouring their own beer is a cool idea. Check out this link to see the mold we won the award for and others who have won the Cool Idea! award.
iPourIt has officially completed our first self serve beer installation at The Tap House in Huntington Beach. The system consists of 8-taps of self-serving bliss. A standard kegerator has been modified and outfitted with iPourIt technology. The kegerator is located on the patio, making it perfect to taste and enjoy 8 different types of beer on a nice day. Thats right, no waiting for a server to come outside for your next round! All you need is your iPourIt RFID wristband, a glass, and thirsty friends. More locations coming soon.
iPourIt is a patent pending hardware and software solution that allows your customers to pour their own beer while tracking every tenth of an ounce. Each tenth of an ounce poured is automatically added to the tab of the customer.
iPourIt eliminates all waste due to bad pours and giving beer away “on the house.” By having your customers pour their own beer it frees bartenders up to pour other drinks. In addition, you will be driving in new business due to the novelty of allowing people to pour their own beer, try new beer and avoid lines at the bar.
IPourIt knows who drinks what, when and where.
How does iPourIt work?
When a customer enters your location, a host swipes their ID and credit card at the management workstation. They are then given a uniquely encoded RFID wristband. As soon as a customer touches a tap handle, their wristband ID is read and several checks are instantly done to validate the wristband. The valve is then opened and allows the beer to be poured. The customer can pour as little or as much as they want and the exact number of ounces poured are automatically added to their tab.
The system has configurable controls to limit the number of ounces that can be poured in a given amount of time. Once the limits are reached the customer can visit with a host again who can make a decision to allow more ounces to be consumed or cut them off.
iPourIt has an online website for customers to visit that will show them their history of pours from every location they have visited. They can rate beers which will offer them suggestions for other beers to try. Locations can target market to customers based on their pouring and rating history. The site also allows someone to search for a beer nearby and even prepay for a pint online that reserves it at a local bar.
