How It All Began
In 2010 Lisa Marcus, a restaurant and bar manager visionary, met Eric Sterling, a software engineer, on an OKCupid date. Just three months later on March 23rd, 2011 in Portland Oregon, DigitalPour was born.
It was on this first date that Lisa discussed the challenges of her job of managing beverage inventory. If you ask Eric, he will say that he was trying to impress her by showing up with sample code on the second date. Lisa was indeed impressed with Eric’s code skills and the ability to translate her vision with numbers and slanty lines in the sky.
Eric spent many an hour moonlighting on DigitalPour at his favorite craft beer bar — Baileys Taproom. With the help of the Baileys team, Lisa’s industry knowledge and many months of writing code, the very first digital beer menu hit the market in August of 2011 at Baileys Taproom.
In October of 2011 we were showcased on the cover of Beer Advocate. Since then we have enjoyed unique partnerships, industry accolades, and hundreds of satisfied customers all over the world.
