The System

The Magic Box

Our Best-In-Class System Starts With Our Superior Screens. Here’s The Magic:

Purpose-Built / Industrial-Grade (vs. consumer-grade tablet tacked to the wall).  Able to withstand heavy use 24/7 + splash proof.

TOUCH SCREEN – Customers can touch a logo to pull up tasting notes on that beverage and scroll to read.

Realtime display of how much you’ve poured in ounces, no delay/latency.

Real Time display of how much you’ve poured and how far you are from hitting your 2 drink limit.

Realtime display of how much you’ve poured in dollars.

Built to be powered on 24/7 and doesn’t have batteries. Our competitors screens are consumer-grade tablets, with batteries, which are not meant to be plugged in/ charging and on all the time.  The batteries swell and crack the screens, and the tablets then have to be replaced.

Multiple Taps Per Screen

Built to fit your budget and your space

Don’t let being short on wall space limit how many taps you have – with PourMyBeer you can have as many as 4 taps per screen, saving on wall space and enabling the grouping of beverages by screen.

Highest Quality Tech

The PourMyBeer is the most intelligently engineered system on the market, by far, period.  Read why

 

The PourMyBeer system was designed to fix the shortcomings of all other self-pour products on the market.

Our team of engineers succeeded. The result is a world-class system that offers the highest level of functionality, ease-of-use, and reliability.

That’s why every major operator who conducted a formal RFP screening process selected PourMyBeer over the others. Click here for a full comparison of PourMyBeer vs the competition.

No Wi-Fi Connections Required.

Back in 2013, when another self-pour tech provider was our vendor, they didn’t have screens to show how much was being dispensed while the customer poured. Their short-term solution was a $50 tablet that they made an app for that would connect to a Wi-Fi router and ask the database to request information wirelessly. Needless to say, it didn’t work very well, resulting in countless service calls and unhappy customers. We engineered our system in 2015 to be hard-wired and reliable in every possible way, including not relying on Wi-Fi.

Our screens run on our own proprietary operating system which is Linux based and highly stable.

Other companies utilize tablets running Android or iOS that are subject to random OS updates that can happen at anytime – like when you have a packed house wanting to use the tap wall!

We have complete control over updates to the screens, and will schedule with you at a time when you’re offline and not open for business.

A/C Powered.

Our system runs on A/C power instead of D/C power like other self-pour tech providers’ systems do. This might not seem like much at first, but it’s a big deal.

A/C power carries through long runs of wiring, D/C doesn’t, so we can put our valves and flow meters as far as 50 feet away.  Other self-pour tech providers have to put their flowmeters no more than 3 feet away from the tap, and having the flowmeter this close to the tap causes a problem – foamy beer! To combat the foam, they have to over-build a beer system to super-cool the beer at the tap, to try to get it not to foam. With the PourMyBeer system, the flowmeters can be mounted well inside the cooler, far from the taps, giving the beer plenty of time to settle before it comes out of the taps. Voila, a nice smooth pour without foam! This is also a key reason why regional and national chains who started with another self-serve system switched to us.

Benefits Easy-to-use. Fast. Reliable.  Built-in redundancies to prevent complete system failures. And…No foam!

The Most Reliable System On The Market

  • A minimal number of connection points –  our system is so streamlined and simple, it has less than half the number of connections that the products of other self-pour tech providers do. Fewer connection points mean less potential failure points, nuff said.
  • No Wi-Fi – A clean, closed-loop network that’s hardwired with ethernet instead of depending on Wi-Fi. We’re the only system on the market that doesn’t depend on Wi-Fi, and this makes a big difference.
  • A mini edge network with built-in redundancies and fail-safes – our screens aren’t just consumer-grade tablets, they’re purpose-built industrial-grade screens that are actually doing control and calculation right at the taps, and sending that information back to the server.  So if the server or any component goes down, no problem, the system still functions.  Once again, PourMyBeer is the only system on the market with this kind of intelligent design that gives you incredible reliability.

The Most POS & App Integrations

POS Integrations

Apps & Other Systems

We play nice with others, and we’re the only self-pour provider who does.

Rather than try to reinvent the wheel and create our own POS or marketing apps, PourMyBeer recognized early on that it’s best to have an open system that’s as agnostic as possible so that it can integrate with all of your critical restaurant operations systems. So rather than try to build our own POS, we built an open API, that enables us to easily integrate with other systems.

Owner’s Experience With PourMyBeer

After hearing from our awesome PourMyBeer family members, we have found some highlight benefits that they have seen from having our tech!

PourMyBeer fam members recognize that managing operating costs is key. Self-serve tech has lowered the need for excess staff, which has greatly reduced their costs while keeping operations running efficiently. They no longer need a bulky bar and hundreds of bottles, so establishments have found that they need a much smaller inventory but actually see a higher return because guests tend to sample many drinks from the wall, all while paying by the ounce. 

Because self-pour technology is highly visible, guests can see the sanitization efforts the establishment is taking. Our operators know the importance of existing foot traffic, and carry-out and delivery doesn’t drive alcohol sales, which we all know will lead to profitability. Our operators have seen sky-high beverage sales because of consumers’ ability to sample when visiting on-site. They tend to test out many options before settling on their favorite, and they even feel safe doing it during this time because of the display of safety measures. A lot of our operators offer growlers or crowlers, so if a guest does choose to dine off-premise, beverage sales will still increase.

Why Did I Switch From My Previous Self-pour Tech Provider?

We pride ourselves on being the only company on the market that has never been retrofitted by another self-pour technology provider. Watch more videos on some of our latest retrofits of other self-pour tech here.
