What makes us different from the rest?
WE GET ASKED THAT PRETTY FREQUENTLY, SO LET’S DIVE INTO THE ANSWER.
Most comparisons can typically be broken down into a few categories: total cost of ownership, reliability, technology/design (this goes hand in hand with reliability), support, company size & experience, and integrations/compatibility. These are the main criteria we’ve seen on most of the Request For Proposals (RFP’s) that we’ve responded to. Have we mentioned that we’ve never lost an RFP? Yep, that’s right, batting 1000 here. Every time buyers do their due diligence and deep dive into our tech, our team, our service – and compare with all other providers – they choose us. Every time. Not too shabby of a record, and we intend to keep it that way.
We’re also the only company that has never had one of our systems replaced by another self-serve tech company, but rather we’ve replaced 15 systems of other self-pour provider’s tech in the last year. These systems continued to fail and were not fully supported, so restaurant/bar owners were willing to pay again for a whole new system from PourMyBeer instead of keeping their original, unreliable technology.

Key Benefits of our self-pour technology
PourMyBeer’s revolutionary self-pour technology is a great way to serve guests’ drinks efficiently during this staffing crisis. It is challenging to hire and keep good employees on your team because servers and bartenders chose to take jobs in other industries during the pandemic. Self-pour technology will keep your operations running smoothly without the need for extra or backup staff. Our in-depth consumer reporting system gives operators access to consumption patterns and consumer data. This data helps operators see the following benefits:
Let’s Get Into Some of the Details
Lowest Cost of Ownership
Do you want an equity partner taking $0.01/ounce of beer and $0.03/ounce of wine that you sell through your self-pour system? We didn’t think so. But that’s exactly what other self-pour providers do. Their monthly support is priced this way, and it adds up, taking a bite out of your profits. For typical beer and wine sale prices, that’s at least 4% of your profits.
Best Engineered & Designed System
Our system is engineered to outperform all other self-pour systems on the market. We created a hub and spoke (mini-edge) network system, meaning each screen does calculations of each pour in real-time on its own. If your main computer server goes down, or the screens lose connection to it, the screens will still function. This design also means no latency. Our system runs on our own Linux-based software, meaning no surprise updates will appear on screens when you have a packed house.
Company Size and Experience
PourMyBeer has installed over 150 systems in the last 24 months. 6,281 taps. That’s more than any other provider. With a full-time team of 20+ and growing, our US-based company will be there for you when you need it, from smooth installation to training, all the way to if you call for support. When you’re shopping for other providers, be sure to ask them how many employees they have and where they’re located. See our team here.
Cards, Wristbands, Key Fob RFIDs
PourMyBeer is the only system on the market that lets you choose the type of RFID you want – either secure/encrypted RFID cards with memory or wristbands and key fob RFIDs. We highly recommend using the secure/encrypted cards for many reasons that we’re happy to tell you about, but if you would like to use wristbands or key fobs or any other shape of RFID that is no problem, easy peasy!
3-Year Replacement Warranty
PourMyBeer was the first self-serve provider to offer a full 3-year replacement warranty to customers. This is one of the reasons why PourMyBeer is the true market leader. We are extremely confident in the reliability of our technology that we provide a 3-year replacement warranty.
Our system is so well-engineered and reliable that we get very few support calls. We have 500 + customers worldwide and receive less than 10 calls a week. If you do need support, we’re there for you. We have dedicated support staff and a team of project managers, all of whom are ready to assist. Our team is spread across the country for ease of access.
Most Reliable System
Our system is the most reliable on the market. This means you won’t lose revenue or customers due to downtime. Purpose-built, industrial-grade screens, not consumer-grade tablets. Other self-pour tech providers’ screens have batteries and aren’t meant to be plugged in and powered on 24/7. Over time, the batteries swell and break the screens. Our screens don’t have batteries and can run 24/7. There is no dependence on Wi-Fi. If your Wi-Fi goes down, our system is still going strong.
No Foamy Beer!
A critical difference between the PourMyBeer system and other providers is that we run on A/C power. This lets us mount the flowmeter in each beer line far from the tap inside the walk-in cooler. This allows the beer to settle after going through the flowmeter and thus gives a smooth pour without being super foamy. Other systems operate on D/C power, so the flow meter needs to be very close to the tap, less than 3 feet, near where the power source is in the tap wall.
Our BKG Reporting System allows you to get to know your customers and what they like more intimately than ever before. You have never had access to the granular consumption patterns and consumer data that this reporting system provides. PourMyBeer’s BKG reporting system allows operators to gather these useful insights to create successful operations.
