Whistle & Keg, a Pour-Your-Own Taproom, Announces the Grand Opening of Its Third Location Featuring a 50-Tap Self-Pour Beer Wall.

Columbus, Ohio (October 2, 2019) – iPourIt increases its lead in the market with the installation of a 50-tap self-serve draft system using its technology to offer a unique tasting experience at Whistle & Keg’s third location in Columbus, Ohio.

Vice President of iPourIt Darren Nicholson says, “iPourIt is honored to be a part of Whistle & Keg’s journey from their first location in Youngstown to now, their third location. This is the second Whistle & Keg to open this year, proving success with the self-serve concept. Joe uses iPourIt’s technology and data reporting to his advantage and has enhanced his operations and marketing tactics to grow the business.”

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 Columbus 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.

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 a gourmet pub-style menu offering hot dogs, shareables and more. Whistle & Keg’s concept has already proven successful in the Youngstown and Cleveland craft beer markets, providing customers with top-level service and a unique social and tasting experience.

The Columbus location’s grand opening is this Friday, October 4, 2019.
