Table Tap LLC introduced the first entirely self-serve taproom at the Oz. Tap House in Austin, Texas. Grabbing a cold one just became a lot more entertaining in Austin.
Table Tap is the the first company in the world to introduce self-service beverage dispensing systems. Pour Your Own Beer (P.Y.O.B.) is the tagline and primary focus of Table Tap LLC. The flagship systems of the company, TableTender® (table taps) and WallTender™ (beer walls) provide data in real-time when dispensing beverages. The systems collect data such as who pours what, when and where the beverage is poured, and also the amount poured.
The founders of Table Tap and Oz. Tap House worked very closely with state legislators on the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Code to allow the existence of self-pour establishments in the state of Texas. The Texas Alcohol Beverage Commission submitted a new interpretation of the Alcoholic Beverage Code.
“I am proud to be born in Texas, and I have lobbied to seek approval for self-pour beer technology in my birth state for almost a decade. It is truly an honor to partner with Oz. Tap House to bring the unparalleled experience of pouring your own beer to Austin,” said Jeff Libby, founder of Table Tap. “Our hope is that Table Tap’s fully integrated, self-pour technology and point of sale system will empower beer lovers in the Lone Star state to experience a wider variety of local Texas and other fine craft beers ‘buy the ounce.’”
Table Tap’s WallTender™ system offers 40 self-pour taps, giving customers an interactive and entertaining drinking experience. Each of the 40 taps has an interactive LCD screen that enables customers to find information on all the featured brews, and pour anywhere from one to 16 ounces of the beer they choose. The full technology allows customers to order and pay for not only beer, but also wine, sodas, and creative menu offerings.
The Oz. Tap House will feature a Table Tap app called PourTender™. PourTender™ lets bar patrons track their pour history and rate the beers they like best or want to avoid. The app also gives customers an easy way to pay without waiting in line.
“We are passionate about the food and fine beer experience, and we knew we needed the best system to bring the self-pour experience to Texas,” said Sean Kanter, owner. “Oz. Tap House aims to be neighborhood spot where locals become friends over good food and fine beer.”
