The Draft Beer Faucet, an Indispensable Part of Any Bar or Tavern
A beer faucet, apart from a beer tap handle, 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.
