I must be writing this from beyond the grave, because only heaven would have something as cool as this. Ever whined about not getting a full beer (the Shaker pint glass cheats you out of 2 oz.)? Ever felt like you had to gulp your pint because you weren’t sure when the bartender would come back? The TableTender ends all your beer drinking woes.
TableTap, LLC, a company based in Atlanta, Ga. has come up with a phenomenal new idea that puts the power of the pour into the consumer’s hands. With TableTender, you are seated at a table that actually has taps mounted on it. You pull the number of pints you want, and when it’s time to shut it down, you ask for the ticket. You are billed for each ounce that was poured. You drink at your own pace, only pull what you want (half-beers are legit), and never have to wait for a beer.
“But Ghost Chris“, you say, “doesn’t that system fly in the face of responsible service of alcohol?” Actually, the table stops pouring beers after 180 ounces comes out of the tap. The friendly server will come by to make sure you’re not well into your cups before re-enabling it. If you don’t like the tap you’re sitting at, you can just order something else from the server.
I hope this catches on because I’ve always felt that pulling your own pint really rounds out the draft beer drinking experience.
