Billy Dennis says, “We experienced self-serve and iPourIt’s technology first-hand and immediately recognized the promising and exciting business venture. My partner and I decided to open Hops N Guac and work with iPourIt to provide a great customer experience, good beer and wine, and flavorful food you can’t find anywhere else.”

Blake Harper, CEO of Hops N Guac, says, “Our vision is simple; Modern Mexican food coupled with iPourIt’s self-serve draft system and fun interactive games. We wanted to do something a little different with the design of Hops N Guac. The look of sugar skulls and the Day of the Dead was appealing to us with the murals and eccentric color tones that are associated with it. We want people to experience not only the food, service, and beer, but the ambiance as well!”

Hops N Guac is a fast-casual concept offering full plates and shareables with a Mexican-inspired twist. They’re creating a complete and unique experience with a 1,200 sq. ft. outdoor patio, 4,500 sq. ft. indoor space, a grass area for special events, TVs, and games such as shuffleboard, giant Scrabble, Connect 4, and Alabama’s first Snook Ball court.

iPourIt’s self-serve beverage dispense technology provides the freedom of choice with the 50-tap self-serve beer wall. The pour-your-own concept allows patrons to pour their own beverage, make their own buying and pricing decisions, avoid long bar lines, and try a specialized offering of their choosing without having to purchase an entire pint.

Darren Nicholson, VP of iPourIt, adds, “iPourIt is excited to work with Hops ‘N Guac in bringing the self-serve concept to Huntsville. The location along with their unique twist on Mexican food, fun and timeless games, and iPourIt’s self-serve system is the ultimate package for a fun experience and successful business.”
