A video game featuring Budweiser beer that was very popular in the 1980's. These machines were located at many United States bars and nightclubs, versus the teen arcades. The objective was to keep the customers at your multi-countered establishment happy... Fill the mugs, slide 'em down to the waiting folks and make sure to catch the empty mugs coming back your way. If the customers weren't served quickly, the Tapper man was in big trouble. If a returning mug wasn't caught by the Tapper man, CRASH!!! Turn over. Extra points were earned by keeping the counters clear of trash, if the player was fast enough.

There were several scene settings, depending on what level a player was at, including a standard bar, sports bar, and even an alien bar. Between levels, there was even a round of beer hunter.

Tap"per (?), n. Zool.
