Catering Insight took a look back at the achievements of the UK catering equipment industry over the last 12 months with the Dealer’s Choice initiative.
We put a call out to senior distributor executives to find out what their favourite lockdown launches would be and nearly 300 were invited to demonstrate their ‘Dealer’s Choice’ for products in 11 categories.
In the dispensers category, 61% of dealers plumped for Hoshizaki’s BeerMatic Dual Tap.
The DBF-AS65WE is an automatic beer dispensing solution which allows operators to serve consistent, traditional style beer and lager by the press of the button. The dispenser is a suitable solution for applications such as beer gardens, stadiums, concessions and mobile bars where operators are working to low staffing levels, or staff have limited bartending experience.
With the capacity to pour two drinks simultaneously, staff simply need to place their beer glasses within the BeerMatic Dual Tap and press the button in order to achieve premium served pints or half pints. Once the button has been pressed, the machine automatically tilts the glass so that the flowing beer will cascade down the side of the glass for a perfect beer to head ratio. Just 15 seconds later, staff are able to serve.
The dispenser can also be used at sites that have recently set-up an outdoor area or pop-up, in-line with government advice regarding social distancing. Plus, because the BeerMatic Dual Tap has an internal chilling system and offers the ability to connect directly to a standard keg, it can be kept at room temperature.
Also designed with waste, hygiene and safety in mind, the product should reduce risk of spillage and beer wastage due to the automatic aspect of this unit. Plus, the unit’s accurate automatic dispensing technology is designed to reduce contamination risks as fewer touch points are created during the pouring process.
