What You Need to Know About Jockey Boxes
For outdoor dispensing solutions, nothing beats the king of all tailgating equipment, the jockey box. Basically, a jockey box is a cooler with a draft beer faucet (or faucets on the front), dispensing stainless steel coils covered by an ice bath inside, and a shank through the back connecting to a keg that sits behind the cooler. It’s the perfect way to serve cold beer outdoors, especially if you don’t have power to run a kegerator.
Depending on your outdoor draft-serving needs, you can choose a jockey box kit with either 50’ or 120’ coils. Large-scale events where people are constantly pouring will require 120’ coils, but the 50’ coils will suffice for smaller occasions where pouring occurs less frequently.
