The Chicago Marathon — Executive Summary

Scope: Ten TurboTaps were installed on a beer caddy in the finishing area.

Training: Volunteers, none of whom had previous draft beer dispensing experience, were trained on site. The training took three minutes.


– Keg yields increased 12% due to minimal spillage and the correct collar of foam.
– 55% more beer (13,760 cups vs. 8,883 cups) was served with 40% less staff in the same amount of time as the previous year, thereby saving labor costs and eliminating long beer lines.
