Whistle & Keg’s New Cleveland Location Installs Self-Pour Beer Wall With iPourIt Technology

Whistle & Keg, a pour-your-own taproom, opens its second location with 50 self-serve taps.

LAKE FOREST, CA – January 17, 2019 – iPourIt increases its lead in the market with the installation of a 50-tap self-serve tap system using its technology to offer a unique tasting experience at Whistle & Keg’s second location in Cleveland, Ohio.

Whistle & Keg offers something for everyone with a selection of local and national craft beer, wine, cider, mead, and kombucha as well as live music and an open food policy. Patrons can order their favorite take out or bring in their own food. Whistle & Keg’s concept has already proven success in the Youngstown craft beer market, providing customers with top-level service and a unique social and tasting experience.

Co-Owners and brothers, Joe and Mike Thomas, opened the Youngstown location in October 2017, bringing the first self-serve taproom to the state of Ohio. Giving patrons total control over their drinking and dining experience, Whistle & Keg offers something Cleveland residents and visitors are sure to enjoy. The pour-your-own concept allows customers to make their own buying and pricing decisions, pour their own beverage, avoid long bar lines, and try a specialized offering of their choosing without having to purchase an entire pint.

Vice President of iPourIt, Darren Nicholson, says, “As an iPourIt partner, Joe hit the ground running with the opening of Whistle & Keg’s Youngstown location. He recognizes the value in iPourIt’s innovative technology and extensive data reporting and uses it to enhance his operations and marketing tactics. We are excited to grow this partnership as Joe becomes a multi-unit operator and to grow both businesses together.”

Joe Thomas adds, “We are thrilled to bring Downtown Cleveland a unique, fun and comfortable experience. At Whistle & Keg, our patrons are in charge and in total control of their experience. This makes us the perfect spot for all occasions.”

The Cleveland location plans to open in February of 2019, located downtown at 818 Huron Rd. E.
