Is “Bottoms Up” The Greatest Thing To Happen To Beer?

One thing that really grinds my gears is waiting excessively for a beer when at a concert or sporting event. It may sound trivial but we’ve all been there. We go out for a beer, wait in ridiculously long line, and miss something really awesome. I didn’t throw down all that money to stand in a line, after-all. Fortunately, that may be an inconvenience of the past.

GrinOn Industries has developed perhaps one of the greatest beer innovations since the keg. It’s called Bottoms Up. The name should say it all. Instead of slowly pouring beer from a typical tap, which can result a foamy pint if done incorrectly, Bottoms Up literally comes from the bottom. So, how does that exactly work? Well, the glasses have holes on the bottom of them and are placed on top of a dispenser. I know it doesn’t sound logically right now, but it will. See there’s a magnet that covers the hole, it rises as the beer fills the cup and then seals the opening. Once you’re done with your beer you can pop out the magnet and have a little keepsake. It even looks like the venue has the choice of making the magnets customizable, which includes, everything from team or beer logos. However, the absolute best part of Bottoms Up is that it can fill 44 pints of beer in under a minute by one person.

Bottoms Up recently made it’s Philly debut at a Flyers game and received some negative feedback, like hitting the bottom of the glass too hard and having beer spilling all over you. That could be a minor setback considering how fast you can grab your beer and get back to your seat in time. Personally, I can’t wait to see this thing in action in person because it looks awesome. Besides the Wells Fargo Center in Philly, and apparently Fenway, here’s where else Bottoms Up is being used:
