The TurboTap combats gravity as the nozzle tapers in diameter ensuring the beer remains in contact with the nozzle walls throughout its entire journey from tap to container, helping to combat the effects of gravity with viscous forces. The turbo tap also

By increasing the number of customers that can be served in a given time by bar staff, the TurboTap can significantly increase throughput at peak times, and reduce staff numbers across the board. For the customer, it will mean shorter queues and a perfect beer every time. It’s a classic case of recognising the important problem and the founder of TurboTap, 31-year-old Matthew Younkle did just that in seeking out the technology to pour a faster, more consistent beer.
