Beer Faucets and Accessories

Before beer is dispensed into your glass, there are several key components in a draft beer system that are needed to ensure a successful pour. The last piece of equipment that stands between your galss and the beer is the faucet.

The flow of beer from the faucets is controlled by pulling the tap handle. The amount of pressure from your gas tank is extremely important, as too much pressure could create a turbulence that will cause the beer to create a layer of foam in the glass.

Draft beer faucets are available in a wide variety of designs, quality, and brands, allowing you to customize the look of your bar. You can choose faucets that match your d├ęcor, hobby or ones that will easily tell you at a quick glance the type of beer you are dispensing.

Many of these faucets may also be used to dispense wine and ciders. The important thing to look for in a cider/wine faucet is that it is made from stainless steel, which helps to eliminate any off flavours. (continue reading below)

When choosing the type of faucet for your kegerator or bar, make sure that you determine the type of beer you are dispensing, plus choose a faucet that suits the location you are planning to using it. Moreover, it is also crucial to know how much you are willing to spend for a faucet. Beer faucets can get expensive depending on the quality, design, material they are constructed of, and of course the amount of taps on your beer tower.

Another thing to consider when choosing your beer faucets is the type of beer that you are going to dispense. For instance, if you are serving stouts or Guinness beer, you will need a special spout that allows for the use of nitrogen.

Remember too that with some faucets you can add attachments. The attachments may be different types of spouts, bottle or growler fillers. So rather than purchase a different faucet for each task, it may be more cost effective to pay a bit more for a faucet that can do a whole lot more.

Once you have installed your draft beer faucets, it is important that you also maintain their quality and performance by regularly cleaning them. To clean beer faucets, disassemble them and use the appropriate cleaner and brushes to rid them of any residue that may affect the final flavour of the beer.
