Must Visit Self-Pour Locations

The hospitality industry is very active and always changing, which is especially true in the course of the past two years. Self-pour beverage technology has been on the rise since 2015 but the current staffing crisis and operators desperately seeking solutions to simplify their operations led to a huge increase in the popularity of self-serve technology.

In this article, we would like to take a moment to highlight some of the awesome locations, powered by PourMyBeer, that have helped spread the self-pour revolution and bring the fun and freedom of self-pour to their towns or neighborhoods!

Breweries

Bunnyman Brewing

Location: Fairfax, VA

Number of Taps: 27

Taps Per Screen: 3

Bunnyman Brewing is the first micro-brewery to hit the Burke, Virginia, area. The name for the brewery came from a famous local urban legend and sparked the concept behind this wonderful brewery. The Urban Legend stories take place in the1900s, a patient escaped from a local insane asylum. He lived near the train tracks and began murdering bunnies. Then, he started dressing in a bunny suit and murdered two children, and hung their bodies near the tracks. He later became known as “The Bunnyman.” While the Urban Legend has been mostly proven false the stories have become part of growing up in the local community, somewhat of a badge of honor to have been scared by them. This provided great inspiration for the brewery’s name to two craft beers loving friends & the brewery’s owners, Eric and Sam.

The owners decided to partner up with local food trucks, so you can have something new & different every day you come in! To top it all off, Bunnyman Brewing also has a large outdoor space to accommodate the crowds and let people mingle and enjoy some fresh air while spotting their Bunnyman plastic figure hidden in the woods, dare to find it?! 

People from all over Virginia travel here to take part and experience this unique brewery with such a cool story behind it! So, whenever you are in the area, make sure to plan your trip to try some of their amazing brews yourself and perhaps get a cool cozy sweatshirt with a creepy-looking Bunnyman on it!
