A polished Stainless Steel Nitrogen Stout Faucet for the perfect ale pour. This European style ale faucet features a restrictor faucet nozzle that slows down the pour of the beer for a more high quality taste. The Ale is forced through the restrictor disc, which de-gasses it, creating a thick, creamy white head with very small bubbles. The durable stainless steel body prevents corrosion and is easy to clean.
The Draft Beer Faucet, an Indispensable Part of Any Bar or Tavern
A beer faucet is one of the most important parts of your bar's beer-dispensing system, both functionally as well as aesthetically. It is the last stage of a dispensing process wherein cold beer is finally poured into your customer's glass or mug. A standard faucet for serving beer is commonly made of chrome, brass, stainless steel, and even plastic. It is also interesting to note that, depending on the material that it is made of, a tap faucet—believe it or not—can subtly affect a beer's taste to some degree, something that an avid beer connoisseur can easily detect.
Which Beer Faucet Is Perfect for Your Bar?
When it comes to durability, a stainless faucet is your best bet. For many years now, stainless-steel beer faucets have been the choice of bar owners because of their ability to resist corrosion, which can greatly affect a beer's taste. Stainless-steel draft-beer faucets' resistance to corrosion also helps reduce the incidence of bacterial, yeast, and mold growth inside these faucets, apart from a stainless faucet's intrinsic design that helps prevent the influx of airborne bacteria into the faucet as well as inhibiting the backflow of possible contaminants into the faucet and line. Needless to say, the lower the bacteria, yeast, or mold content in a beer faucet, the better the beer will be.
Brass beer faucets do not have the antibacterial benefits of a stainless faucet, but an added advantage is that these tap faucets are easy to clean. A thorough washing or wiping and polishing with a weak solution of one part vinegar or ammonia to three parts of water will keep a chrome draft beer faucet looking sharp and new. An advantage of a brass faucet is that it looks great in a bar, especially because of its antique feel.
A chrome beer faucet is very durable, corrosion- and wear-resistant, and easy to clean and maintain. It is also a very attractive faucet to have for your bar. Chrome faucets are also relatively inexpensive and affordable, so they might just be the best beer faucet when it comes to giving bar and tavern owners the best bang for their buck. Plastic tap faucets, on the other hand, are great for beer but can also be used for other beverages such as sodas and similar drinks.
The Beer Tap Handle, An Essential Part of Any Beer-Dispensing System
The way a beer tap handle works is pretty straightforward—it opens and closes the beer faucet. When a bartender or barmaid pushes the tap handle forward, it allows the draft beer to flow from the faucet. In turn, pulling the beer-tap handle backward closes the faucet and proceeds to stop the flow of beer.
But a beer tap handle need not be plain and boring. Most tap handles showcase the logo of a particular brand of beer, but if you want to accessorize more for your bar or pub, novelty draft beer tap handles are the way to go.
Only a few years ago, bar tap handles were simply objects of function: a simple lever that released beer or stopped its flow at a bartender or barmaid's whim. Nowadays, though, beer faucet handles also serve a different function—they help catch the customer's eye and provide character and artistic flair to any bar, tavern, or restaurant.
In fact, these days, customers can find colorful, whimsical, and elaborately ornate beer tap handles in bars all over the world. Tap handles nowadays are of different shapes and sizes and are usually colorful and eye-catching, but they basically serve the same function that they did many years ago—to help serve the perfectly chilled draft beer.
