American Draft @Growth Fountain



American Draft is a pour-your-own beer hall housed inside a historic train car at The Chattanooga Choo Choo Hotel. With a self service pour-your-own draft beer system, American Draft merges modern innovation with the classic charm of the historic Chattanooga Choo Choo Hotel.

The Chattanooga Choo Choo hotel has made strides in the recent years and has quickly become a space that we locals can actually enjoy and be proud of. Station Street is booming and The Choo Choo partners have an exciting vision for the rows of train cars located next to the gardens behind the dome lobby. The American Draft team is excited at the prospect of looking towards the future while giving new life to an old historic Chattanooga train car.

American Draft is a cutting-edge beer hall. We are a lean startup aiming towards a nearly automated concept without sacrificing the warm humanity of hospitality. We have built a concept that operates in a very small space with extreme efficiency. Our staff will also be very small and specialized. This is all made possible by a revolutionary draft beer system from PourMyBeer.com.

On average, bars and restaurants experience a waste of over 20% of beer from EACH KEG they serve to their guest. This happens from either the inefficiency of kegs and draft systems or having beverages poured without receiving money for them. The PourMyBeer system uses innovative software and seamless hardware to charge volumetrically for beer. Guests simply load an RFID card with funds and place it under the screen. The card keeps track of every ounce of beer poured per guest and the guest is free to sample anything without committing to a full glass. This translates into healthier profits than a typical beer hall concept!
