What You Need to Know About Keg Pumps
The kind of keg pump tap you’ll need depends on how and where you plan to dispense. Is your keg supplying beer to hundreds of impatient drinkers? Do you want to avoid the task of pumping all night? These are important questions to consider before purchasing your beer keg pump.
If you plan on serving a large crowd, you may want to consider more than one faucet tap. The Fast Pour Multi Tap comes with four faucets, which make it easier to dispense for larger groups. We also offer the Fast Pour with 3 taps, which works with a fast and efficient foot pump while dispensing from multiple faucets.
The keg coupler you use will depend on the type of beer you’re dispensing. All pumps sold at KegWorks come with a coupler to open the keg, but consult our keg coupler list to match the beer you’re serving to the corresponding coupler system. Most American and Canadian domestic brews run on a D-system. For other beers, we sell European S-system pumps, A-System pumps, and G-system pumps.
Keg pumps traditionally involve manual effort to move the beer from the keg to your glass, but CO2 taps like the bestselling Leland Picnic Tap are becoming more popular. With the addition of gas from the CO2 cartridge, you get a perfect pour without the physical labor of pumping.
Nothing gets the party going better than a cold, frosty keg just waiting to be tapped. In order to get into it, you’ll need a keg pump. Lucky for you, KegWorks knows kegs - hence our name - and we have a variety of different pumps that range in both faucet and coupler type. Choose between pumping the beer yourself or letting CO2 do the work when considering your purchase.
