Keg No. 229 co-owner Calli Lerner understands what people want—and don’t want—in the bar experience.

“There’s nothing more annoying when the bartender’s busy and you can’t get another drink,” she said.

To avoid that problem, Lerner and her partner, Sandra Tedesco, have introduced New York City to table-top beer taps. It’s just what it sounds like—a configuration of tables featuring a different domestic craft beer tap and price-tracking computer screen at each seat. The bar also serves better-than-usual bar food and a large selection of canned and bottled domestic beers.

Less demand up front allows Lerner and Tedesco to go from barkeeps to barcops. “After every 32 ounces, we go check on each customer before they can order more,” Lerner said.
