A Good Use for QR Codes at Tria Taproom

Finally, a good use for QR codes! At Tria Taproom in Rittenhouse, which just opened last weekend, the zero-bottle drink menu is a digital one. Scan a QR code on the printed food menu - using your phone or a restaurant-provided tablet - and you’ll be taken to the list of 24 beers, 10 wines, two ciders and two artisanal sodas.

Click on each one to find out details about it, such as who made it, where it was made, what style it is, what its alcohol content it holds and the price and size of the pour. An additional cool part of the interactive menu is each beverage’s current “availability,” showing exactly how much of the keg or cask is left, down to the percentage. Play a game with it and order the last couple pints of a rare beer before your friend does, for example. All orders are still taken by live servers, by the way; the digital menu is for exploration and knowledge - and games - only.

Though the food menu isn’t interactive, it has now been released in full, and you can check it out here (215-557-8277).
