Robotic Beer Dispensers

Asahi's Beerbot Ensures Speed & Zero-Wastage

— November 12, 2013 — Lifestyle
Japan's top exporting and leading brewery based in Tokyo has created a robot for the sole purpose of pouring beer. It doesn't stop there, the robot can pour six perfectly balanced beer to foam ratio at a time -- it takes only 12 seconds per glass without making a mess.

Beer wastage hugely affects profitability of any bar. According to Gizmag, wastage "has been the focus of considerable effort over the last decade as special taps, lines, and temperature and gas regulators have pushed wastage in many high volume outlets below 5 percent."

The robotic bartender is able to replace the human bartender, guaranteeing a better pour, more efficient, faster and zero-wastage, decreasing the margin of error of wastage close to zero.
Trend Themes
1. Robotic Bartenders - The development of robotic bartenders presents an opportunity for more efficient and accurate pouring, reducing beer wastage.
2. Automation in Hospitality - The use of robots in the hospitality industry, such as robotic beer dispensers, can streamline processes and improve customer experience.
3. Waste Reduction Technology - Implementing robotic beer dispensers with zero-wastage capabilities can contribute to overall waste reduction efforts in the food and beverage industry.
Industry Implications
1. Hospitality - The hospitality industry can benefit from the implementation of robotic beer dispensers to improve efficiency and reduce costs.
2. Food and Beverage - The food and beverage industry, particularly bars and restaurants, can explore the use of robotic bartenders to enhance customer service and minimize wastage.
3. Robotics and Automation - The robotics and automation industry can capitalize on the growing demand for robotic beer dispensers as a solution for increasing efficiency and reducing wastage in the food service sector.
