The Grand Opening of Tap-it-Out @ Solaris Mont Kiara

On the 22nd of November 2017, I was at the grand opening event of Tap-it-Out at Solaris Mont Kiara. Well-known for its first-of-its-kind beer automated teller machine (ATM) in Malaysia, Tap-it-Out has been the talk of the town since it first opened doors in August this year.

If you think that it was all just talk, you have got to head down to Tap-it-Out to experience probably the most innovative beer tapping from a fully automated beer bar yourself! All you need to do is purchase a prepaid card or better known as beer pass.

At a grand opening party, founders of Tap-it-Out Ethan Yoon, Ryan Foo and Joltan Ng hosted some 200 guests together with their key business partner Carlsberg Malaysia, represented by Managing Director Lars Lehmann, Sales Director Gary Tan and Corporate Communications & CSR Director Pearl Lai. All of them poured a perfect pint from the beer-ATMs to mark the official opening. Tap-it-Out offers nine types of draught beer including Carlsberg, Asahi, Connor’s, Kronenbourg 1664 Blanc, Löwenbräu, Erdinger Weissbier, Hoegaarden, Stella Artois and Leffe.

“Response has been overwhelming so far! Since the inception, we’ve received many positive reviews, secured many regular customers and hosted numerous private functions just over the last three months. We have many exciting activities lined up in the coming weeks leading up to the festive seasons”, Ethan Yoon, a 30-year-old entrepreneur shared.

Managing Director Lars Lehmann congratulated Tap-it-Out and said: “We are most delighted to have Carlsberg Malaysia’s probably the best draughts portfolio brands available for this probably the most innovative beer-tapping experience. It probably tastes better when you can tap a perfect pint all by yourself. This is bringing the enjoyment of drinking draught beer to a whole new level. We trust our partnership with Tap-it-Out would be #ProbablytheBest one!”

The beer ATM is a fun and simple innovation allowing beer lovers to tap their choice of premium beers available with just a tap of the beer pass! Simply purchase a beer pass from the counter, select beer of your choice, scan the beer pass on the monitor and tap your perfect pint! The beer pass has a lifetime validity and is reloadable in multiples of RM50.

In conjunction with the grand opening, Tap-it-Out launched its Snap & Win contest with a chance to win a beer pass worth RM1,122! In two simple steps, first snap a photo or selfie at Tap-it-Out, and secondly post it on Facebook and/or Instagram with the hashtag #tapitoutmsiagrandopening.

The beer ATM is very easy to use, just make sure that you have the beer pass and place it on the designated area.

Get a glass ready and start tapping like a pro...

It's just that easy. You don't have to finish up the credit in the beer pass with only a type of beer, you can also try out different beer which they are offering as well.
