Approximately one million ounces of beer and wine flow through iPourIt’s system each month and almost a quarter million unique users have poured on the system since its inception. iPourIt is also developing location-based mobile apps for iPhone and Android, so that patrons can track, rate, and share beers, and close tabs from their smart phones. In addition, iPourIt is the proud recipient of OCTANE’s First Look Award and Protolab’s Cool Idea Award.
