A New Beer Machine at UA's HK Lounge
Whoa - that was new. I had to stop to look again to be sure, but it looks like United has put in a pair of self-service beer taps near the back of its lounge in Hong Kong. It no doubt took a cue from the push-button convenience of their beer machine at Narita, but without the automated tilting and head-topping action that one could only come to expect of a machine in Japan.
It was a bit amusing though in that it only dispensed the beer into tiny little paper cups. If you were fortunate enough to find a glass available next to them, it still didn't fill the already-miniature-sized (and unchilled) glasses all the way up given how it was perfectly measured for the paper cups instead. But at least it was a step up from some of those refrigerated cans of the past.
