Project: Tap List on TV
Created an interactive slideshow that presents the current beers on tap with beer descriptions, logos, ABV and IBU. Includes slides for promotions and events. The slideshow is presented on a TV monitor above the bar and on the Tap List page of the website. The list is updated weekly and when when new beers arrive on tap.
