FastPour mobile bar - Reading University

Reading University Students’ Union recently purchased a FastPour mobile bar, supplied by T&J, to support its permanent bars during high volume service periods, such as special events.


Reading University was looking for a solution to the issues its students’ union faced during events, particularly their upcoming annual Summer Ball. During these activities, there were areas where the university had been needing to increase facilities for beer sales and, importantly, take pressure off some of the existing bars, which experienced large queues.

Site assessment

Looking at the areas of the site to which the university was giving consideration, and having discussed with them the purchasing trends of the students, we determined that the FastPour mobile bar would offer an ideal solution to their needs.

FPB back


Prior to purchase, we provided the university with a trial of the mobile bar, in order to gain approval from the directors. The trial allowed the board to consider the pros and cons of the system, see how it performed under pressure, and review the efficiencies of the solution compared with standard brewery setups.

The mobile bar was introduced for Freshers Week, with the long-term goal of also implementing FastPour within the main bars, when they are refurbished – thus future proofing the bars, for years to come.

The FastPour system is ideal for large venues, particularly where music, performance and sporting events are concerned, as bars receive a high number of customers that need to be served within a short period.

The system is optimised for dealing with volume dispense; on multi-dispense fonts, staff can pour several pints at once, resulting in even faster service.

The FastPour mobile bar is a stainless steel, all-purpose structure, equipped with FastPour beer dispense. With our supporting installation services, clients can serve customers faster than ever before:

  • Pour the perfect pint in just 9 seconds, from each of the FastPour taps
  • Dramatically increase service speed and staff efficiency – through one-hand operation
  • Bar holds two 88 pint kegs of the same or different brands
  • Branding options available

Client feedback

“We’ve been delighted with the FastPour system – the technology really works, and has delivered to staff and students alike, an excellent service experience. We’ve seen a superb ROI with our mobile FastPour bar and look forward to the prospect of incorporating the FastPour system into our permanent bars, as part of a future refurbishment programme.

“The rise in profits, that the FastPour system has provided, allows us to pursue more of our charitable work for the students at the university, funding our advice services at the Students' Union and contributions to the sports teams.”
