I’ve been working on some draft system related projects lately (turns out such things are fairly common at KegWorks) and it occurred to me that Perlick faucets are really in a league of their own.
It’s honestly not just a pristine brand name and a bump in price that sets them apart. The quality difference, durability and innovation in design are evident to anyone who knows their draft equipment. Sure, any faucet will pour your beer but the Perlick faucets will pour your beer for the rest of your beer drinking life. Proudly made of the highest quality stainless steel right here in the United States, they eliminate any exposure to air so that no mold or bacteria can form. The fact that the internal parts aren’t in contact with air also ensures that the handle lever won’t stick, which results in better, easier pours with less foam.
The Perl faucets are the most sanitary models of all. They boast a revolutionary design that includes a “Perl ball” and floating O-ring, so there’s no need for a valve shaft. Less parts mean less things that can break and it means less space for air to sneak in.
If you get the version with a built-in creamer feature, you can top off your with the perfect amount of head by simply pulling back on the faucet.
It’s more than an upgrade; it’s whole new kind of pour. If there’s any part you splurge on, make it the faucet.
