Taprooms

The power to sample freely

Thanks to the craft movement, taprooms and tasting rooms are on the rise. Nielson data says 42% of U.S. consumers are visiting taprooms more than they did the year before, and the key reason they’re coming back is to taste and try a wide spectrum of beers. That second part may not be surprising, but it does tell us that people like to try things.

With iPourIt self-pour systems, you can give customers the ability to try, test, taste, sip, and sample as they please. But now it’s on their tab, not yours.

Tap selection tips for taprooms

While sampling is a huge part of the self-pour experience, our data shows that “loyalist” or traditional lagers are the top-seller across the board. This is a must-have.

Hard seltzers are hot! So is hard cider and kombucha. We recommend reserving a few taps.

Our data shows that female customers are less price sensitive and tend to go for premium products like red and white wine. One or two of each will do the trick.

Use the TapVision™ Business Intelligence tool to see what customers are drinking and which slow-moving products need to be swapped out.

Taproom

The power to sample freely

iPourIt technology shines the brightest when utilized in fast-casual restaurants, event venues, and brewery taprooms.

According to Nielson data, 42% of US consumers are visiting taprooms more than they were in the year before. Hop onto this fast-moving train and give your customers a unique experience that will make them return.

The Power To Taste 

Customers often do not come to taprooms and do not think deliberately about what they’re ordering; they come to breweries for the variety. The iPourIt system allows them to taste and sample at their leisure without wasting any of the keg yield. 

Learn at Their Own Pace

With so much variety, some customers can get overwhelmed. The iPourIt tap screens allow them to learn about the offered beverages at their own pace without any worry about monopolizing the time of one brewery taproom employee.

Have a Unique Experience

Going to a brewery is a brand-new and novel experience for some people. And a self-serve tap room ups the novelty even more. Even the most well-traveled brewery superfan will likely not have come across this model. Consumers, especially younger consumers like Gen Z and Millenials, are always looking for new experiences. 

Focus on What Matters

The iPourIt system doesn’t fully eliminate the need for staff; it merely frees up the staff to talk with the customers more, ensure that everyone is having a safe, fun time, and share their knowledge.
