At PourMyBeer, we take pride in being the market leader of self-pour technology. We are the only system on the market that has never been replaced. Yet, we’ve replaced several systems of other self-serve providers. To see the full list of all the replacements we’ve completed of other self-serve systems in 2021, download the PDF below!
Check out one of our most recent replacements of another self-serve provider’s tech at Can Can Wonderland! After growing tired of the faulty and unreliable technology from their previous provider, Can Can Wonderland decided it was time to switch to PourMyBeer!
This art-based entertainment venue in Minnesota features endless fun, from mini-golf and arcade games to paintball and more! The operators of this venue didn’t want guests to miss out on a second of the fun because their self-serve wall wasn’t working properly, which ultimately led them to PourMyBeer. Check out the transformation of this 36-tap self-pour beauty! 🔥
We also have a couple of great resources for you to check out if you’d like to learn more about some of the replacements we have done. Check out the two links below to read how the process works and why these two operators are happy they made the switch to PourMyBeer!
PourMyBeer offers the most superior screens on the market. Here’s why. We created our purpose-built, industrial-grade screens with the restaurant industry in mind. Unlike other self-pour providers, PourMyBeer screens are designed to be powered on 24/7, and they’re splashproof. Our screens do not have batteries, as they cause screens to swell and crack, ultimately leading to unhappy customers.
Don’t just take our word for it. Watch the video below to hear Jim Wright, operator of 4 self-serve establishments, explain the issues he experienced with his previous provider’s screens.
PourMyBeer gives customers the comfort of control over what they are spending. Our screens provide a real-time display, showing the running amount of pour volume by a tenth of an ounce and the running cost as customers pour. They will see a real-time display of how much they’ve poured in ounces with no delay or latency.
Jason Imhoff, the owner of Zpizza, emphasizes the importance of seeing how much you’re spending and how our real-time display enhances the self-pour experience for customers.
iPourIt screens only show ounces poured after each pour is finished, not in real-time.
PourMyBeer screens show both ounces poured and amount spent in real-time.
Unmatched Customer Support
Things go wrong; this is a fact of life. But it’s how these errors are dealt with that matter. PourMyBeer tracks every support call, and as of this writing, over the past 24 months, we have averaged 15 support calls/week from our 360+ active customers in the US & Canada. If a screen ever has an issue, which is not common, a new one is shipped overnight to replace it. Our engineering and our level of commitment to support are two of the biggest reasons we will continue to replace our competitors’ systems. We have also created a knowledge base for PourMyBeer operators. In this knowledge base, you will find everything from troubleshooting and maintenance to 3rd party hardware integrations. If you would like access to this knowledge base, email firstname.lastname@example.org and they will grant you access as a PourMyBeer fam member!

Flat Monthly Fee
We don’t believe in penalizing our customers for their success, so we went the route of having a flat rate based on the number of magic boxes (or screens) our customers have. It’s simple math: $100 for the first screen and $20 for each additional screen per month. We max our monthly out at $750, and it’s based on the number of screens you have.

A major difference between PourMyBeer and other self-pour providers is our flat monthly fees. Jim Wright says this was the main reason he made the switch to PourMyBeer. Read his thoughts on the cost of our tech below.
Customers of other providers report that the (Read-only) wristband RFID is ineffective, as is the sensitivity of the RFID reader on their tablets. Constantly waving your wrist in front of a screen can get annoying, especially when the whole point of a self-serve system is to make the process of getting a beer easy and painless. Tired of seeing their customers struggle, these owners switched to PourMyBeer.
In December 2020, the PourMyBeer team flew to North Carolina when Hoppin’ Brands decided to switch from their previous provider. Hoppin’ chose to replace the self-pour systems in all locations and upgrade to PourMyBeer technology. Our team replaced a total of 217 self-pour taps! Check out the video below to get an inside look at the retrofits at each location!
Hear how the owner of Hoppin’ Brands, a big industry player, feels after making the switch to PourMyBeer.
Most Pos Integrations
PourMyBeer integrates with a variety of POS systems because rather than trying to build our own POS, we decided it’s best to leave that to the experts. That is why we have engineered our system with an open API, enabling us to integrate with the best POS systems on the market, such as Toast, GoTab, and others. This flexibility means our customers get the best of both worlds: they can use the very best POS systems to fit their needs and keep things running smoothly, and they can also have the best self-pour system on the market. Check out some videos of our integrations in action.
Our POS integrations make our customers’ lives easier. Jason Imhoff touches on the pain points of not having these important integrations.

PourMyBeer takes great pride in a well-engineered, stable, and secure self-pour system built to last. Other self-pour technology providers struggle with the issues described above, which is why we are replacing about 2-3 of their systems every month.
While we are always happy to add to our PourMyBeer family, we want to encourage everyone to do their due diligence before moving forward with the right vendor.
6 Questions You Should Ask Your Provider
- Can you provide a list of all the installations you’ve done in the last 24 months?
- How many employees do you have in the U.S., and where are they located?
- How much will I pay for your support every month if: I have 40 taps and plan to sell 60 kegs of beer in a month? And, if 20% of that is wine, will that impact my costs for you monthly?
- Did/do you use consumer-grade tablets for screens? How many do you have in the market?
- Have you ever had a competitor remove and replace your system with their system?
- Have you won any RFP’s with large companies? Please explain in detail.
