Dave & Buster’s in Austin, Texas, features a “Tapzone” with a 24-tap self-serve beverage wall.
This is the third location of Dave & Buster’s (after San Diego and Los Angeles) that puts customers in control of their drinking experience by letting them be their own bartenders! Guests, 21+, can experience the self-pour taps in the Tapzone and pour from a variety of beers, ciders, and cocktails. The Tapzone beer options currently include 4 Austin-area breweries with brewery-specific glasses and specialty-tapped Dave & Buster’s cocktails made from scratch in-house!
At Dave & Buster’s in Austin, guests begin their Tapzone experience by visiting a team member and presenting their ID and credit card. Once the guests’ ages are verified, they receive a PourMyBeer RFID card linked to their credit card that gives them access to Dave & Buster’s 24 self-pour beverage options.
Thanks to the PourMyBeer technology, each beverage can be sampled and poured in whatever quantity the guest desires, so they can sample a few and find their favorite or pour right up. This ensures that guests are always able to drink only what they like best. Best of all, the efficiency and quick nature of self-serve dispensing means that guests can get what they want with no wait.
The General Manager, Darien Kapture, says, “We are excited to introduce this new experience to our guests. We already have the latest and greatest games in our midway, the biggest HDTVs in town for unmatched sports viewing, the best chef-crafted food around, and now with the release of our Tapzone taproom space, we have some of the best beers in town! With the release of the Tapzone, we will feature 8 Austin-based breweries. The PourMyBeer wall will consist of twenty craft beers and 4 in-house crafted cocktails.”
Josh Goodman, the CEO of PourMyBeer shared his thoughts on this opening, “Earning the trust and business of a company like Dave & Buster’s is why I started the company in the first place. As excited as we are to work with them, my 10-year-old daughter and 13-year-old son might be more excited than me. They’ve never been more motivated to join the family business.”
