  • Patent number: 9334150
    Abstract: Beverage containers with attached or connected RFID tag. The RFID tag exciter is placed in or near the beverage dispenser for energizing the RFID tag and for discerning information therefrom. The information stored in the beverage containers is used to track it, record the consumable beverage types with which the containers are filled, the number of times the containers are filled, and the records of the types of beverages with which the containers are filled. The combination of different RFID tags is read and translated to identify a particular beverage container. The identity of the beverage container is entered into a smart mobile device application to track, record, and create customized drink selections associated with the identity of the beverage container. The records of the customized beverages are sent to the user's smart mobile device from a computer system connected via wired or wireless communication with the beverage dispensing system.
