(WDAY TV) - The next time you grab a glass of beer at your favorite watering hole, you might get it even faster thanks to a new beer distribution system.

It's called the bottoms up and it debuted yesterday in Philadelphia. It fills the cups by pushing beer through the bottom of the cup. It fills up 9-times faster than standard taps and 4 cups can be filled at once.

A pump connects to a magnet at the bottom of the glass. The beer pushed the magnet up and pours beer in from the bottom. When the beer gets to the top, the magnet comes down and seals in the beer.
