I was in a World of Beers on Saturday. They had literally hundreds of beers. WoB has a nice mobile app I have on my iPhone. This particular WoB had chalkboards and printed menus. Printed menus are outdated before the ink dries. My wife and I were each given a printed menu and they weren’t even the same. The combination of a digital beer menu integrated with a mobile app is the only way to fly.
That’s exactly what I’m talking about … something a server could show customers or something customers could access on their own smartphone.
By the way, Untappd offers a digital beer menu (like Taplist.io) and a mobile app,
I was at the Engine 15 Brewing Company (Jacksonville Beach location) last week. They have over 50 draft beers split across two Untappd digital beer menus on large screen televisions,
Even with the digital beer menus, you still benefit from having a mobile app. There’s only so much information you can fit on a television screen with near 30 beers on it.
Well, that’s a little different. The Yard House in Orlando has a tablet like this, along with the search / filter capabilities I described. Close to a hundred beers.
With Taplist.io’s rich database and the API Mikey is about to expose, a mobile app is relatively straightforward. We should probably start there.
