Imagine going into a pub, to an event, stadium or racecourse and being able to pour your own pint. Technology is everywhere controlling our World and now it will allow you to pour your own pint.



Pour your own Pint –The system that allows your customer to pour their own draught beer, either from a table, beer wall or mobile unit.

The ideal solution for volume businesses and customers pay for every drop of beer.

This system, new to the market can be fixed or mobile. The fixed solution is for new builds or refurbishments as beer lines need to be run to the table. The mobile is ideal for events, stadia or any volume occasion. The mobile unit holds 2 kegs and gas. The beer wall holds four kegs and gas and will therefore service more people, ideal for volume occasions like stadiums. The system works wirelessly and staff are totally in control from behind the bar or a central point. The customer purchases an i-button from the bar or cash point and this allows them to pour beer to value on the i-button. The system has a number of advantages including:

  • Instantly increases profitability as customer pays for every drop of beer dispensed
  • It saves time and allows staff to focus on other areas
  • It has proven success in where it has been installed with customers booking beer tables in advance when there is a major event
  • The screen on beer pump allows customer to order other drinks and food directly from table
  • Mobile units provide a solution to volume environments or in temporary situations such as marquees.

The draught beer unit above shows the beer taps complete with tablet which can be used for ordering food, alternative drinks and would connect to the tills so the orders can be bought to the table. The tablet can also be used for advertising to improve the pay back or advertise future events and menu items.

This technology has use throughout the hospitality industry and has tremendous appeal to the customer. Imagine being able to book your own beer table in your pub to watch a major event on the big screen or going to that major event and not having to queue for a pint.

The capital outlay is offset by a number of factors including it allows you to serve more beer, there is no waste and you can sell advertising space on the tablet.

Hi I am Managing Director of Guineas Associates, based in the UK with offices in Cambridge and also in Limerick, Ireland. We are a small consultancy business focusing on the catering, hospitality, event and leisure industry. The business was formed in May 2008 and since then we have successfully assisted businesses in the process of change management, retail branding and implementation of new contracts.

I am able to draw on 30 years of experience of managing the catering operations at prestigious stadiums, racecourses, conference centres, arenas and
major one off events. I have also advised on International stadia including

the process of management change and restructure, whilst developing a brand for
their retail operation. I have opened a new contract for a client and managed
the design and build project for this contract, liaising with client,
contractors and local authority and recruiting the team, developed the retail
brand and produced marketing materials for the venue. I have also helped a
