"Georgia bar features personal beer taps
The beer never runs out at one Atlanta sports bar"
boasting two beer spouts are built into tables dotting Atlanta’s swanky
STATS sports bar. Each is hooked into a cooler of kegs in the bar’s
basement through a network of tubes and pipes.
To fly with state officials, serve-yourself beer had to include some built-in deterrents.
waitress must first check IDs before turning on the tap. When the
digital ticker counting each ounce hits 180 — or about three pitchers —
the taps shut off until a server comes by to check on the table. Bigger
parties keep servers running back and forth fairly often, while it’s
rarer for smaller groups to hit the limit.
Each tap has two
spouts offering a selection of the bar’s more than a dozen beers,
including Miller Lite, Guiness Stout, Newcastle and a house brew called
Numbers Ale. Customers can only pick which taps they get by reserving a
private party table.
To use the taps, diners simply reach into
the middle of the table and pull the lever to get as much — or as
little — beer as they’d like. Meters and valves monitor the flow and
instantly display how many ounces the table has tapped."
Don’t let this part dissuade you:
"At a table full of 20-something Michigan fans..."
Michigan fans may be better than everyone else, but it doesn’t mean they’re _all_ arrogant.
