Serving great-tasting beer is essential to the success of any bar. Customers expect a good pour that tastes fresh. The reason so many bars and restaurants offer beer on tap is because it tends to taste better. And for the bar owner or restaurateurs, buying kegs and selling draft beer yields a better profit margin than bottles or cans. But one extremely important factor in the taste of a draft, which is often overlooked, is the cleanliness of your beer tap system. If not properly cleaned, yeast, mold, and bacteria can build up inside your faucet. And if not protected overnight, fruit flies and other bugs, attracted to the sweet-tasting residue beer leaves behind, can also climb up into taps and pollute your lines.
All these things cause beer to not taste as good as it should, and they can cause food safety issues which put your business at risk. Fortunately, the Kleen Plug from San Jamar provides an easy, effective and affordable solution to these problems.
San Jamar Kleen Plug 2-in-1 Draft Beer Tap Cover and Cleaning Brush
Properly protecting your beer taps overnight is crucial for serving fresh beer, and maintaining a sanitary environment that meets health codes. If left unprotected when not in use, airborne particles and other contaminants can find their way inside your beer faucets. If a tap is left exposed for too long, the fruit flies will get inside your taps and spread bacteria. Wrapping up your taps with plastic or covering them with aluminum foil can be time consuming and wasteful. You can buy rubber tap caps or faucet covers, which are effective at keeping out flies and debris. However, the San Jamar Kleen Plug provides the added benefit of cleaning the inside of your facuet at the same time! The durable faucet brush helps clean taps, removing yeast and sediment for a fresher, better tasting beer.
Kleen Plug™ is affordable and easy-to-use. Its innovative tiered design allows it to fit into a variety of beer tap openings. It can even be used to clean and protect some rail bottles, beverage station drains, and Store and Pour containers used for mixing behind the bar. The hole at the end allows you to create a chain, linking all your Kleen Plugs together so you don't lose them. This is handy if you have a beer tower with multiple taps.
Dual-purpose Kleen Plugs keep your draft beer faucets clean and your customers happy. You can reuse this handy tool night after night to seal, protect and sanitize your taps. But over time, if your Kleen Plug starts to fit loosely in the tap, it is time to be replaced.
