The game changing draft beer system for small and medium sized outlets
The best of the brewer’s art, and serving it cold and fresh is the best way to enjoy it. At half the cost of cans and bottles, keg beer is also your best value, and it’s easy to dispense – whether you’re at home or a bar or restaurant. Let’s talk about the basic components of a draft beer system. It’s always best to start at the keg and move to the glass.
Today’s beer kegs are made of stainless steel. The modern single valve (sometimes referred to as Sankey) keg has a single opening on the top. A tube called a "spear" extends from the top of the keg to the bottom. There is a sump or shallow well at the bottom to ensure as much beer is emptied out of the keg as possible. This self-closing valve on the top is opened (tapped) with a keg coupler. The valve allows gas (usually carbon dioxide, CO2) to push the beer out of the keg.
Most U.S. brewers sell beer in 1/2 barrels of 15.5 gallons, 1/4 barrels of 7.75 gallons, and 1/6 barrels of 5.17 gallons. In the U.S. the terms half-barrel and quarter-barrel are derived from the U.S. beer barrel legally defined as being equal to 31 U.S. gallons.
