Timonium, MD (PRWEB) July 03, 2012
Bar patrons around Baton Rouge aren’t giggling over their beer – they are celebrating it at the area’s hottest restaurant, Schlittz & Giggles. They are the first restaurant in Louisiana to adopt the latest beer trend – Pour your Own Pint. The establishment recently unveiled three mobile Draft Table™ tables from Ellickson USA, the leading provider of innovative technologies that enhance the commercial performance and social dynamic of bars, restaurants, and other establishments, that allow customers to self-serve their beer.
Known for their loyalty to old school beer (and their 196” TVs), Schilttz & Giggles kicked its customer experience into high gear in a tribute of bringing a new twist to an old tradition. The restaurant’s three Draft Tables enable customers to “pour their own pint” of six beloved beer choices: Pabst Blue Ribbon, Bud Light, Abita Amber, Covington Strawberry, Miller Light and Tin Roof. Each table comes equipped with two taps on a rotating tower so customers simply twist the taps toward themselves and pour.
All pints are poured in a highly controlled environment. The Draft Tables are monitored by the ounce and are operated by an i-button that allow staff to permit and limit the amount of beer that can be self-served. With a tap of the button, customers can open the tap and pour what they would like, up to a two beer limit.
“Don’t let the name fool you, we are serious about our beer,” stated Erin Hains of Schilttz & Giggles. “We’re thrilled to be the first in our market to offer our customers a new experience in beer consumption. The idea of self-service beer adds to our ‘silly name, SERIOUS PIZZA’ philosophy and enhances the entertaining, fun, family atmosphere we take pride in offering our community. We’ve received tremendous feedback from customers and our staff loves them.”
