Waste at restaurants and grocery stores contributes to society’s overall food waste problem. Josh Goodman started PourMyBeer in 2012 to make beer and beverage dispensing a self-service experience. Now, the company helps serve beer, wine, and soft drinks to customers at Whole Foods, Dave & Buster’s, Caesars Entertainment locations, and military bases in 24 countries. It also won an investment from Coca-Cola’s European bottling business to help develop solutions to reduce single-use containers for soft drinks.
Earth911 talks with Goodman about how PourMyBeer makes getting a drink quick and safe, even during the pandemic. We also explore how PourMyBeer can participate in new reusable container programs to eliminate single-use plastic waste and the prospects for a delivery system based on reusable beverage containers.
