Sports bar with self serve beer

Need another beer? Patrons at Atlanta's swanky STATS sports bar can draw their own.

Beer taps are built into the tables. Jeff Libby, the 26-year-old who patented the system, says it's perfectly legal in Georgia.

The taps automatically shut off after about three pitchers' worth and waitresses first check patrons' IDs.

Libby says the self-serve beer has advantages for the bar.

He says customers get their beer fast and are charged 25 cents an ounce for every drop, even for the foam. That works to four bucks for a full pint.

He's hoping other states will sign-off on the self-serve beer taps.
