Walters Sports Bar Allows You To Achieve the Perfect Pour Yourself

April 15, 2019

Jeremey Gifford set out to remedy the issue of a multitude of beer craving sports fans and not enough bartenders to please the masses.

“There’s nothing you can do about it—except if you can make a big huge beer wall and have customers pour their own, you can get people served faster than if you just have bartenders, ” Gifford, owner of Walters Sports Bar, told the Washingtonian

With the opening of Walters, he has done just that.

Come to Walters after the game and we’ll give you a $5 card to #pouryourown #NBAPlayoffs and #Masters all afternoon. . . . . . . . . #WalterJohnson #NavyYard #NatsPark #DistrictEats #DCDrinks #DCBars #EdibleDC #WashingtonDC #MyDCCool #Nationals #WalkOnOverToWalters #Beer #Bourbon #Baseball

The new bar, located at 1221 Van St., SE, features a wall of 24 draft beers, which patrons can pour themselves.

Customers are given a beer card, which is linked to their individual tab, swipe it at any of the draft stations and enjoy a cold one (without the delay of waiting on an overwhelmed bartender).

And if going overboard is a concern, the machine that dispenses each beer requires individuals to check with staff after 32 ounces have been poured, accoring to the Washintonian.

Prices are regulated per ounce so customers can pour as much or as little as they want.
