Kansas considers allowing self-service beer taps

Posted: Updated:

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Self-service beer taps could soon be coming to Kansas bars to give patrons a new drinking experience that supporters say a bartender just can't match.

Automated beer taps are prohibited in Kansas, but a new piece of legislation under consideration in a Senate committee this week aims to change that.

A trio of Topeka entrepreneurs is behind the bill and hoping to open a self-service bar called the Brew Bank downtown if it passes.

Self-serve establishments exist all over the country, including Missouri. In Springfield, Zach Campbell owns and operates the 417 Taphouse and sees self-service taps as more convenient.

He said, "It's like a beer buffet."

Committee chairman and Sen. Bud Estes said he has no issues with the bill and doesn't think anyone else on committee does either.

This story has been corrected to show that the name of the bar in Springfield, Missouri, is the 417 Taphouse.
