Smart taps for perfect beer

Pubinno is building smart taps for perfect beer. The smart tap, Taptronics, increases keg yield using smart fl ow algorithms and patent-pending robotics. Installed in place of manual taps, Taptronics reduces waste, controls the fl ow of beer with precision, and saves bartenders time. Taptronics serves the perfect beer and delivers a smooth and creamy foam that creates a wonderful drinking experience. Taptronics is a new channel between bars and beer brands, and yields operational and quality metrics in real-time. The company already has 30 paying customers, and is currently working with two of the 10 largest breweries in the world, Heineken and Efes Pilsen.
