What is a Portable Beer Tap?

A portable beer tapper is essentially a beer dispenser that can be used outside a bar or restaurant, especially outdoors during a picnic or even a beach party. One big difference between a portable keg tapper and a beer dispensing cooler is that majority of beer dispensers are usually built to cool or chill  two or more kegs of beer, unlike a beer keg tapper that is limited to chilling one keg of beer, which is why it is more portable compared to ordinary beer dispensers.

Bars, pubs, taverns, or restaurant are establishments where people go for excellent and perfectly chilled draft beer. But it doesn't mean that cold draft beer should be limited to these places. With a portable kegerator, you can take your kegged beer wherever your party goes. A portable beer tapper is an excellent way to transport your beer while keeping it cool and at the ideal serving temperature.

How Do Kegerators Work?

A portable beer keg tapper generally uses and follows the same cooling process as a bar beer dispenser, just with the added advantage of portability. Because of this, portable beer keg tappers have the same basic components as bar-based beer dispensers. This also means that, like ordinary beer dispensers found in bars, portable beer tappers are also a combination of two other machines: a fridge and a keg of beer. Basically, portable keg tappers are wheeled fridges with a keg of beer inside, which is dispensed with the help of a spigot at the top.

There are a lot of how-to videos and how-to articles around the Internet nowadays that teach anyone to make their own keg tappers and kegerators. Well and good, because who wouldn't want to create their own beer tapper from scratch? However, one problem that may arise with making your own portable beer keg tapper is that the hole that you are required to bore at the top of the fridge that is used to thread the spout through can cause the precious cold to escape. This is because it is quite difficult to properly seal the opening to ensure that all the cold that the fridge creates stays inside to chill the beer keg 100 percent.

In a nutshell, portable beer keg tappers work by allowing the kegged beer to chill or cool within the specially designed fridge, with the cold beer dispensed through a spigot or spout installed at the top of the unit that taps into the beer keg inside the beer tapper.
