We at Rapids Wholesale have a wide selection of picnic pumps, keg coolers, and keg jackets—all at affordable prices.

Pump Up Your Outdoor Party or Picnic with Rapids' Picnic Pumps

Generally, portable beer pumps are fairly easy to use: just attach the pump to the keg and open the faucet to release the natural pressure inside the beer keg. Next, pump the portable tap to put pressure into the keg, press on the beer tap handle, and voila—beer is released.

We at Rapids Wholesale have a wide selection of portable picnic beer pumps perfect for any outdoor event, party, picnic, or other functions that require serving cold draft beer straight from beer kegs. We have a variety of portable draft pumps from trusted manufacturers that include American Beverage, Uber Tap, Taprite, Perlick, and more. Our simple but effective keg hand pumps fit any beer keg and are easy to attach, so you have a lot less time to worry and even more time to party!

Although our keg pumps fit a variety of beer kegs, please make sure that you have the right tap to match the beer you purchased. You can ask any of our friendly Sales Representatives here.

Keg Coil Coolers for the Perfectly Chilled Beer

An excellent and effective way to keep kegged beer cool at outdoor parties is by using beer coil coolers. A coil keg coil cooler works by chilling the beer quickly on its way to the faucet as opposed to keeping the entire keg cold. Warm beer passes through a metal coil that is immersed in ice water, and this ensures that the beer passing through the coil is perfectly chilled. With a good-quality coil cooler, you are assured that the beer pouring out into your glass or mug is cold enough and ready to drink. We at Rapids Wholesale offer a wide selection of keg coil coolers from one of the most trusted manufacturers of beer coolers, American Beverage.

Keg-Cooling Jackets, a Hassle-Free Way to Keep Beer Cool

Another great option for cooling beer kegs at outdoor functions is the use of keg jackets and keg blankets. Keg-cooling jackets are usually made of insulating material such as vinyl, canvas, or polypropylene. These beer blankets are designed to fit snugly around standard-sized beer kegs, so there is no need for any ice. A keg blanket or keg jacket also usually features a hole at the top to accommodate a beer pump.

Because keg cooler jackets are commonly made of insulating material such as  polypropylene, vinyl, or canvas, these beer blankets work by preventing the warming up of a beer keg due to rising temperatures. A good-quality polypropylene, canvas, or vinyl keg jacket is designed to insulate and maintain the cold temperature of a beer keg by limiting exposure to higher temperatures. Needless to say, keeping draft beer cold is important—not just because of the taste, but also because of the fact that temperature plays a big part in how foamy a beer can get after dispensing. In general, colder kegs mean draft beer with less foam. And good draft beer means happier party guests—and hosts.

Our keg jackets and blankets here at Rapids Wholesale are designed for 1/2 barrels. Choose from vinyl or canvas materials that will thoroughly insulate any beer keg and keep it cool for hours. All our keg cooler jackets are lightweight, easy to handle, and have sturdy stitching. They also come with center holes to accommodate picnic pumps (sold separately).
