Self-Service Taps? Oh, lord.......


Sam Sessa's Midnight Sun blog at BaltimoreSun.com reports on a new development at Mother's Federal Hill Grille on S. Charles St.: Tables with their own beer taps.

The good news (or bad, depending on your point of view): a Kegerator is under the table, and the beer is cheaper per ounce through this convoluted payment system (go to Sam's blog for details) than regular drafts.

The bad news for us geeks: Thus far, only pouring Miller Lite and Blue Moon, though plans are supposedly in the works for more draft lines to feed the tables.

I wonder if you save anything in tips.......

I remember reading an article on pub that did this in Atlanta a year ago or so. when the article was published it was going well. Hopefully a system can get in place for multiple taps, maybe selected by a patron with a reservation. I would love that. What would you place on tap, if you had, say 4 taps at a table of you and your friends?

Ooohh, that's a cool concept. I hope it works out for them. Now I'm busy like BaltimoreMan, trying to think of what my ideal four taps would be...
