Wells Fargo Center to Debut New Bottoms Up Beer Dispenser

Bottoms_up_beer
Ladies and gentlemen, your life will change tonight.

Warning: listening to this song while reading this post will significantly enhance your viewing experience, no matter how corny Trey Songz is.

According the WHYY, the Wells Fargo Center will be the first Philly area stadium to implement the new Bottom's Up Beer Dispenser. In case you haven't seen it yet, the BUBD fills your beer from the… wait for it… bottom up.

It uses a magnet that covers a hole in the bottom (that's the trigger word right there) of the cup. When placed on the dispenser, the magnet is lifted to allow beer to fill into the cup. The dispenser, which pours beer 9x faster than the average tap, automatically cuts itself off once the cup is full. Hello sexy!

When removed from the dispenser, the magnet is pulled back down by a small magnetic ring in the bottom of the cup- Sealing. It. Shut. I love you.

For those of you worried about the "traditional pour," the founder of BUBD, Josh Springer, notes that few stadium attendants truly know how to pour a beer anyway. I'm not so sure that's true, but at this point Josh could tell me blue is green, and I'd believe him.

The cup should fit in perfectly at The Well because… wait for it… the magnets have advertising space on them. 

Videos after the jump of BUBD in action.

There is a good chance that Jeff Carter already has one of these in his shore house.

Comcast Spectacor PR man Ike Richman has video of it in action at The Well on his Facebook Page.

H/T to Lauren for that find

  2. Carter’s is customized with an automatic roofie-dispenser for when he has the college students at his beach house. Miller Lites for everyone!

  3. thanks, lauren

  4. it’s a shame those things shoot bud light out of them and not something else. that stuff tastes like camel piss.
    still pretty awesome, tho.

  5. The greatest news for us Philly fans is that the magnet can be removed and used as a dangerous projectile!

  6. Pat Burrell invented this without a doubt

  7. fuckin magnets. how do they work?

  8. how much time does it really save? they seem to have trouble getting the cup on at times. And that HAS to cost more per glass to have the magnet in there

  9. Those of you worried about the “traditional pour”, notes BUBD founder Josh Springer, aren’t drinking domestic macroswill.

  10. Here’s an article explaining how this contraption works:

    Unbelievable!

  11. This seems like the most necessary invention since the Segway.

  12. @AL Gore – I was thinking the same thing, but consider that the wasted beer is effectively zero with these in place. Have you ever watched how much beer the average server at the WFC (or any of the stadiums) wastes? The amount that they pour straight down the drain from the tap, and then the amount of head they pour out of the cup and refill is insane. I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if they found they only use 60-70% of the amount of beer they were using before, so hopefully the cost is offset there and no passed on to us.

  13. Great I hope they raise the price to $11 a beer, I love spending my entire paycheck getting hammered at Flyers games

  14. @ Al Gore. These cups cost 45 cents, the regular cups cost 10 cents. However, there is advertising space on the magnet in the cup so the cost can actually be offset because of this.

  15. We can’t cure cancer or AIDS, but we can fill a beer cup from the bottom. I love America.

  16. And wouldn’t the magnet serve as a convenient pull-and-release shotgun mechanism!?!

  17. Why didn’t I hear about this BEFORE Christmas???

  18. shit this is going to make me feel alot more drunk

  19. Sucks that it still serves Budweiser

  20. this is witchcraft! haha

  21. Yawn. Fail. Why can’t we get some decent single malt swill (preferably Irish–Scotch is for wankers)?

  22. Imagine all the mucus, hair, and dirt taps on the counter would collect and end up in your beer…Gross.

  23. Can’t they serve something other than Budtweiper

  24. Thats amazing, the dispenser worked perfectly. But will it help to increase the members of Drug Rehab ?

  25. There will always be tensions between principle and expediency!

  26. there is a woman. And behind every unsuccessful man

  27. The greatest lesson in life is to know that even fools are right sometimes.
