  • Say goodbye to queues. With 32 beers with their own dedicated pump, there’s never a wait for the beer you want. That’s more time to spend enjoying drinks with your friends.
  • Get to try several beers. Because you’re drinking 1/3 pint portions it’s very easy to sample a number of different beers as you’re not committing to a whole pint.
  • Your beer tastes better. The pint glass is a British institution but it doesn’t do the flavour any flavours.
    Drinking at a moderate pace, your beer may be warm or going flat by the time you’ve gotten to the last third or so. Plus, the beer is warmed up by your hand on the glass. When you drink from a smaller glass, you naturally drink slower, enabling you to further appreciate the brewer’s craftsmanship.
  • No pressure. With no bartender or other people behind you in the queue, you won’t be rushed into making a decision. Take your time to consider what you want to drink.
  • No rounds. You’re in control of what you drink and when, there’s no impetus to beat the crowds.
