In stock and ready to ship.

Durable and easy to use, this S-system European Sankey keg coupler is a must-have for serving some of the most popular European beers from your draft beer system.


    Planning on serving popular European-style beers at your home or commercial bar? Add this S System keg coupler to your system and you’ll be ready to pour.

    An important piece of draft beer equipment, the keg coupler connects the gas tank to your keg. The CO2 travels through your beer line, which is attached to the nipple on the side of the coupler. The pressurized gas the enters the keg and pushes your beer up through the coupler and into your beer line that goes to your faucet.

    This keg coupler fits kegs with European Sankey (S System) valves, which is used by most (but not all) European beers, including Becks, Amstel, Newcastle, Heineken, St. Pauli Girl, and more. Before ordering, check out our complete keg coupler list to make sure your beer uses the S System.

    The European Sankey system looks very similar to the US Sankey (D system) that is used for most domestic beers – but don’t be fooled because the stem that goes into the keg is about ¼-inch longer on the European style.

    The European Sankey is compatible with many of the same keg coupler parts as the domestic Sankey, which makes it easier to switch between kegs if you're looking to offer more than one draft beer option.

    Made from brass with a durable hard nickel-plating, this European keg coupler is durable and sturdy. It has black plastic lever-style handle for easy operation. The coupler also features an internal safety relief device that prevents dangerous pressure build-up.

    • European Sankey (S System) keg coupler

    • Works with most European beers
    • Has different stem than standard US Sankey (D system) coupler

    Great Experience
    I have never dealt with this company before, but I have to say I was very impressed on how fast I received my order. I thought I left it to late and that it would not arrive in time for Christmas, but it did.

    This was a gift to someone and they recommended this site and now I know why. I had no issues.

    because the kegerator I am buying doesn't come with the s sankey required for my favorite beer, heniken.
    Sean B on Aug 2, 2016
    Needed a coupler for my keg of Newcastle. Keg looks just like it would fit a D type coupler but the keg has a deeper inset before it reaches the valve.
    Al B on Aug 1, 2016
    Fits the Newcastle keg.<br />Old one, that hasn't been used in years, leaked CO2.<br />I tried replacing the rubber parts on a D tap handle, ended up replacing the whole thing anyway.<br />No fiasco this time, just replacing it.

    I can not connect the co2 hose too the Sankey S Coupler?
    A shopper on Dec 19, 2015
    BEST ANSWER: The co2 hose connects just like any other coupler, it comes with the nipple...just push your co2 hose onto the nipple and clamp in place.
    I need a barrel keg of Stella. Will this work for my keg-o-rater?
    Mindy S on Mar 23, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: It worked on my Heineken keg. If Stella is European it will work. You can call the place where you get the kegs and they should be able to tell you, good luck!
    So the Sankey S coupler have a red plastic top on it and will it work on a Edgestar KC 2000 kegerator ?
    A shopper on Dec 19, 2015
    BEST ANSWER: The type of kegerator you have doesn't really matter. I have three friends with kegerators and we all have different brands. What matters are the fittings on the hoses that connect to the couplers. Mine came with the D coupler for American beers. I have since bought from kegworks an A coupler for German beers and I have the S coupler for certain european beers. The fittings fit all the couplers. So, the one thing that has been standard so far is that the fittings have fit all the couplers I've bought. Good luck!
    Will this work for heineken light?
    A shopper on Nov 17, 2015
    BEST ANSWER: For a complete list of beer types and compatible couplers, check out our Keg Coupler List!
    I bought a I'm s coupler and realized the thread size for the beer line was smaller ( 1/2 ) than the gas line threads. So my standard beer line nut was too big. My question is are the gas line threads and beer line threads the same on this modle?
    A shopper on Oct 6, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: i be leave not. you have to us what came with the coupler , remember you just bought a European coupler. i just switch back and forth each time.
    Does the flexible nipple go in the gas or beer side?
    A shopper on Nov 24, 2015
    BEST ANSWER: Sorry for late reply, it goes on the gas side. Honestly I leave mines out and it works fine. I even remove the check ball on the beer side when cleaning and don't put it back. It works fine also. Good luck! cheers.
    Does this fit gulden draak?
    Joshua S on Oct 19, 2019
    BEST ANSWER: I bought an S coupler because it was supposed to fit New Castle Brown Ale, but after talking to Technical support, they didn’t actually have one that did fit. I did get a return authorization to send it back. (But I didn’t ever return it) The service was good though.

    What coupler do i need for the San Miguel Barrel? Thanks!
    Ziv123 on Aug 18, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hi Ziv, We don't have that beer type listed on our keg coupler list. Our research shows it can vary depending on where you're located. If you have the keg, you could take a picture of the top and send it to and they will be able to tell you which coupler type you need. Cheers!
    Is US Sankey Keg Coupler S different from a US Sankey Keg Coupler S?
