Pint glasses filled from bottom up at new Tottenham stadium

New technology at Tottenham Hotspur's state-of-the-art stadium means beer can be poured hands-free by bar staff.

The serving machines fill pint glasses from the bottom, meaning servers do not have to pour beer manually from taps into glasses.

The machine can pour "multiple servings simultaneously at a rate that is nine times faster than a traditional tap", according to Bottoms Up, the company that made the taps.

The manufacturer claims the machines can pour 69 pints per minute.

Glasses are placed on a metal plate and filled from a hole in the bottom, which is then sealed using a magnet.

Bar staff are then free to take payments from customers while drinks are being poured.

The stadium is also completely cashless. Only payments made using contactless cards, mobile phones or gift cards will be accepted.

The club said the move will increase the speed at which customers can be served and will also make the payment process more hygienic.

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium — which is reported to have cost £1 billion — replaces the club's old White Hart Lane ground.

On Wednesday the club will play their first game at their new 62,000-seater ground when they host Crystal Palace in the Premier League.
