Found out about this while checking out The Macon Telegraph: It’s a beer lover’s dream come true: a tap right at the table at Stats sports bar in Atlanta. No sitting around trying to flag a waitress for a refill. Just put your glass under the tap and you’re good to go. What a great idea! And, amazingly, it’s in Atlanta, Georgia - a state that still bans residents from picking up a six-pack on Sundays.
There’s just one catch – you’re drinking on the meter and when the table hits the limit, the flow stops. At least temporarily. The meters tick away suds by the ounce, with prices ranging from 25 cents to 37 cents, which works out to about $4 a pint for the least expensive beer. When the table hits the 180 ounce mark, the taps stop pouring until a server checks over the table. At 180 ounces a table, that’s 12 pints at a shot.
The bar reportedly spent $50,000 to install the system, called The Table Tap, which connects to 16 kegs in a basement cooler. Guests can pick which two beers they want hooked up at the table.
