Guest Speaker Questions
That’s an easy one, Margaritas. We have tried different ones, we have done bloody marys during the fall football season. We have definitely been testing different things out and have seen tons of success with them. We do a lot of seasonal cocktails, right now for summer we have a blackberry smash on tap. We do have a non alcoholic beer on tap called Groovy, it’s from a local brewery. Which has been a huge success, it’s actually one of our permanent taps and we don’t have many so that’s a really big deal. We also have non-alcoholic kombucha on tap as well.
Margaritas, it has been since day 1. It’s a big seller, one of our permanent taps. We always have glasses with pre-salted rims ready to go by the ice machine. We have 9 wines, 4 cocktail taps and we are going to add more. Bloody marys which we have done for years on the weekends and we are going to make that one of our permanent taps. We also have some non-alcoholic beer and kombucha. We have sparkling wine on the weekends for mimosas or bellinis. With our bloody mary we actually have a bloody mary meal that comes with bacon, celery, spicy chicken finger and stuff that that to go with it.
One thing I think is great is, the screens are actually a marketing tool. So we can set up the background image to match the holiday or a sports team logo during game season to remind people there’s a game and that they should stay and watch. Or if you have an upcoming event you want to highlight. It’s a great marketing tool!
Well in our world, the interface that we have with our POS for us, it’s all that makes it all very simple and because of the way PourMyBeer helped us to do that interface it just makes it so easy to program or to not program the system for Untappd. At the screens my favorite feature is the ability to set the kegs levels, you don’t have to run to the back office. Everything is just very simple. I love the way the screens are laid out in an intuitive manner.
Yes there is. To comply with most or all state liquor laws, the system has to limit each quest to two servings at a time. That is to just prompt a human interaction with the staff member to get eyes on the guest to make sure they are okay to serve more. If they are, the staff can reactivate the RFID card so that they have two more servings. Our system is the only system to do it by servings rather than by ounces. So if you have a low abv beverage on tap #1 you can make that beverage serving size 16 oz. and then on the next tap, #2, you have a wine and you can make that serving size 6 oz. Our system fractionally calculates that and it knows when a customer gets to two official liquor board servings. Then it triggers that responsibility limit, you get a message on the screen that says “see a friendly staff member” and then a staff member with a staff card can reactivate that card and any screen at the wall or at the back of the check in station.
At PourMyBeer we definitely pride ourselves on being the most reliable and well engineered system on the market. We don’t have tablets, we have industrial grade purpose built screens that are built for this specific purpose and that’s how all of our equipment was designed. We pride ourselves in saying that we are the only system on the market that has never been replaced. We have also had about 20 customers come from competitors and have their system be replaced with ours because of all the problems they were having from their previous provider. Reliability and engineering are really what set us apart. In addition to that we have an amazing support team that is there around the clock for our operators.
