Bar has beer taps at tables

with 2 comments

“It’s every guy’s dream,” says Jason Bailey, a partner in O’Neill’s Irish Pub. “We are in Guy Heaven.”

The topic was Table Tap, an innovative way to get cold beer from the refrigerator to the table at O’Neill’s on Richmond Road in Lexington.

Instead of a server carrying pitchers, a beer tap connected by plastic tubing to a keg in the bar’s walk-in refrigerator is at the customer’s table.

As each fresh glass of beer is poured, a meter embedded in the table registers the amount and the charge for each ounce, which depends on the brand of beer.

“It’s just like paying for gasoline, except we charge by the ounce instead of the gallon,” Bailey said.

The tab can later be divided among the people at the table.

“It was just so super-neat, we had to try it here,” he said. “Every guy has thought of (inventing) this.”
