Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 12, 2012
Looking to stake claim as the “most hard-core beer bar in the nation,” The Big Onion Tavern Group’s newest bar, Fatpour Tapworks, gives beer drinkers the ultimate drinking experience – pouring their own pints. The bar revolutionizes the Chicago beer scene with self-service beer draft tables by Ellickson Beverage Systems USA, the leading provider of innovative technologies that enhance the commercial performance and social dynamic of bars, restaurants, and other establishments. With self-service beer, Fatpour gets one step closer to attaining the Best Beer Bar title.
With more than 150 beers available, 50 on tap on any given day, Fatpour brings a level of innovation to customers’ dining experience that rivals nearby establishments. The bar features four draft tables, each equipped with two taps on a rotating tower so customers simply twist the taps toward themselves and pour a beer when they want it. Chicago’s own Goose Island Beer will be served at each table and a second beer choice rotates based on season.
“We’re excited about the grand opening of Fatpour Tapworks,” said Erik Baylis of Big Onion Tavern Group. “Our vision is to provide an exciting and authentic beer drinking experience for our customers. With our extensive list of beers, two-story keg room and self-service beer tables, we hope to become the leading beer bar in the country. Ellickson’s draft tables give us an added edge with our customers – and in the restaurant community.”
The Draft Tables are managed by a patented software that limits and manages the amount of beer dispensed at each table so that customers can drink responsibly. The bar staff is able to open, close and pause a customer’s ability to pour their own beer at the tables without having to go to the tables. Customers can open the tap and pour a half a beer or a whole beer and only get charged for the exact amount they pour. This lets patrons taste different beers without having to purchase an entire pint. It also lets customers enjoy half a beer without feeling the pressure to have to “finish the pint” because they paid for it.
