Wells Fargo Center to unveil world’s fastest beer-dispensing system

    Maybe you (or someone you know) have set records on how quickly you can drink a beer. Now the Wells Fargo Center will unveil the world’s fastest beer-dispensing system.

    It’s called the BottomsUp and it literally fills the cup from underneath the cup filling it to the top in seconds. According to a news release, the Wells Fargo Center will become the first Philadelphia-area venue to debut the system on Tuesday when the Philadelphia Flyers host the Montreal Canadiens at 7:30 p.m.

    Beer vendors at the Wells Fargo Center can now perfectly fill two beer cups at the same time in seconds, nine times faster than traditional beer taps, the statement said. It goes without saying that drinking a beer nine times faster than usual is not really advisable.
