New Beer Device: The introduction of ‘drip trays’ into pubs

beer deviceA NEW non-drip device has been installed in a Melbourne hotel.

The barman places the glass of beer on a wire grate on the non-drip tray.

Then the customer drags the glass across a synthetic cellulose sponge which absorbs drips.

The idea is that the trays keep the bar free of slops and absorbs the drips.

The equipment consists of a series of hollow two feet six inch by one foot trays, placed end to end along the counter.

If you would like to support my work, you can leave a small ‘bar tip’ here of $2, or several small tips, just increase the amount as you like. Your generous patronage of my work and research, however small it appears to you, will greatly help me with my continuing costs.
