Pour your own beer at this new self-serve taproom in New Glarus
Dirty Dog Taphaus is now open in New Glarus where customers pull handles themselves from 30 taps.
A new taproom in New Glarus is allowing customers to BYOB – be your own bartender.
Dirty Dog Taphaus, 101 Sixth Ave., recently opened in downtown New Glarus and offers 30 self-serve, rotating taps. Five taps are reserved for New Glarus brews and the rest include local and regional beers, ciders and seltzers.
Husband and wife duo Leah Hansen and Keith Kube decided to open the taproom after visiting one in Denver that featured self-pour technology.
“We were just enamored with the self-pour concept,” Hansen says. “It’s a fun, relaxed experience that offers a unique social aspect when guests are chatting and engaging at the tap wall. We’ve had such a wonderful mix of folks already — people in their mid-20s to their mid-80s, and families with young children. The diversity proves that this model is welcoming to people of any age, at any point in life.”
In order for guests to serve themselves beverages, they are given a wristband that unlocks the taps to fill up a glass. Without an I.D. and a wristband, you won’t be able pour a beer.
Additionally, the taps will also feature 1919 Root Beer, which you can turn into a make-your-own root beer float. The taproom also serves traditional bar food like cheese curds, pizza and pretzels. Guests are also welcome to bring in food from nearby restaurants.
The taproom also has a patio that is dog friendly and the owners plan to host live music on the weekends in the coming months.
