Five-second pint puller 'could bring end to pub queues'



Pub queues could be washed away thanks to a new device which can serve pints in just five seconds.

New technology will enable bar staff to pour 10 pints in less then a minute, meaning an end to the foot-tapping wait drinkers normally endure for their favoured tipple.

The Publican Newspaper reports Coors Brewers has teamed up with dispensing specialists IMI Cornelius to trial the new system in outlets for their Carling brand.

Pubs and bars where speed of service is crucial are likely to benefit from the new device.

The system serves the liquid at 2 degrees Celsius and can pour lager in half-pint, pints and four-pint jug servings.

A spokeswoman for Coors Brewers said: "We are carrying out preliminary trade trials with a fast dispensing system. However until the results of these trials have been evaluated, there is no further information available."

It is believed that if the trial is successful, the new system will be introduced across the company's range of Carling-sponsored music venues as well as high street locations.
