Pour your own beer spot located under the Unscripted in downtown Durham. Patrons receive a bracelet they scan at taps and the cab choose beer of choice and pour as much as they want. They have a large selection and a smaller selection for wines. Great for someone who wants to sample different types. Can get very crowded. Has decent amount of seating. You have to check in at counter to get bracelet and then out there to return bracelet and pay. This can be a slow process when crowded. They also have food offerings to snack on while there.

A fun atmosphere with a great selection of beer, and a serve yourself set up. Patrons put a card on file then they can taste as much or as little as they would like. The outdoor area is a great spot for enjoying the weather while taking in some scenery from a revamped Durham. A short walk from the Parlor if you'd enjoy a sweet treat after your beverage!

We really enjoyed visiting here on our visit around Durham. The only 2 suggestion we would make, is to have someone near the beer explaining to us newbies how it works. And let us know if foam comes out, end of the barrel, you throw it out, you get charged. We both drank about same amount, but my husband's wrist band rang up like $4 more. He had a few glasses of foam. A customer standing their told us we'd be charged. I guess you have to tell someone the Barrel is empty. But we'll be back and try again. Skip the foam👍

My Oh My, am I in heaven? I absolutely loved this place, it is a must for beer lovers. Pour Taproom has done it right. From the cleanliness to the outdoor area, so many beers so little time. You self pour with a chipped wristband. Only thing I didn't care for was having to reset the wristband after 32 ounces. Every single person here was so friendly even the musician playing outside.

New idea and definitely the selection of beers are good. They have at least 5-7 beers in each category. I like the way you pay for every oz you drink. In that way, no one waste their beers ! It also paves a way for someone who wants to just walk in and taste some beers(like I did - I did 4 beers in the Ale section). They have good number of board games and a couple of screens that play ESPN/(others). I haven't tried their food.

Durham's Pour Taproom is such a gem I wish I had known about sooner. They operate on a wristband system, which allows you to pour your own beers. This allowed me to try several different beers in whatever quantity you would like. They also have a table full of board games, cards, and coloring books.

This is one of the best tasting bars in Durham. If we want to expand your beer pallet, check it out. You pay by the volume. Buyers beware though, they do have limit on how much you can drink.

Best experience in Durham. The staff is polite and friendly. Good collection of various local beers. A nice different experience. We can get minimum of 1 oz and maximum of how much ever we want to have that particular beer/wine!

Really cool atmosphere. They have board games you can play at your table and a wall of taps that you can pour your own glass. You get a wrist band to scan at each tap and the wrist band is linked to your debit card. I thought I was going to have a really high tab because you pay by the ounce but it only came up to 12 dollars. Two thumbs up

This was my first visit here. I went at about 3pm on a Thursday afternoon, and it was quiet and calm. It got busier by 6pm but not outrageously so. Awesome selection of drinks on tap, super easy to use and understand. This was such a fun experience and definitely a place to return to.

Fantastic selection, great customer service, and love the board games nook. The variety of glassware is a cute touch too! I've already taken a few friends visiting the area here and they love it.

Since this is self-serve beer YOU are now the bottleneck. Nice place. Nice selection. Enjoyable conversation (bring your own friend).

Pour is such a cool experience if you haven't been before. I like going to the beer gardens in the city, but this one is by far my favorite. you get these wristbands that allow you to pour every beer on tap, and you can pour as much or as little as you like. I especially like tasting a bunch of beers to get the full sense of what they have, and then pouring a glass or 2 of my favorites! It's definitely a cool experience and you should check it out if you haven't already!

We bring our children here for the Sunday Family Fun days! Pour is wonderfully accommodating and provide games and music for children while parents can taste test their favorite beverages. The patio is nicely situated in the Durham city center which is typically a bevy of activity. Also, its just up the road from Central Park and makes for a great afternoon in the city with the kiddos!

From out of town so I was not familiar with this concept, although I'm told it's popular in the region. Loved the ability to try tons of different beers without committing to a full pint of anything or hassling the bartender for 50 different samples. Huge variety on tap so the whole group can find something they are happy with
