A wall of beer and not a bearded barman in site. That greeted us at Oak and Stone in downtown Bradenton. The “Wall of beer” was actually two walls dispensing 40 different brews.
On entering, one is given an NFC wristband and each beer has a small display above it. Tap your wristband and pour away, the iPourit system measures the pour in one tenths of a fluid once. I guess other measuring systems exist.
No wait for the bar tender. No need to engage in polite conversation you never wanted in the first place…
Is this the future of the pub?
Can’t comment of the food because after two beers there was a fire alarm, the Fire Department turned up and closed the kitchen! Beer was good though.
