You know as well as we do that there are lots of reasons to get a kegerator.
Beer is great. That’s something we can all agree on (the fact that you’re reading this is probably proof of that).
What You Need to Know About Kegerators
How a Kegerator Works
Considered a staple product for both commercial and home use, the kegerator is a cost-effective draft beer dispenser. Choose from top kegerator brands including Summit, Beverage Air, and Glastender for high-quality draft beer dispensing.
We offer single tap and multiple tap systems in free-standing, outdoor and undercounter options to fit your needs and budget. We also offer no tap kegerators and build-your-own kegerators that allow you to set up a kegerator to suit your exact specifications. For Guinness lovers, check out the Guinness Draught Kegerator that’s ready to pour perfect pints of stout.
The first component of a kegerator is a gas tank, typically CO2 (Nitrogen if you’re dispensing Guinness or similar stouts), that will move through a regulator to create a workable pressure for the gas. After passing through the air line from the regulator, the gas then moves to the coupler which takes in the gas to ultimately move the beer from the keg through the beer line.
After the beer is pushed through the beer line, it arrives at the shank. The shank connects the system to the tower or any vertical surface, like the door of a fridge. From there, it flows through the tower, and out to the faucet where the beer will ultimately dispense.
With the purchase of a brand new kegerator, all of these nuts and bolts will already be set in place, but it’s still nice to know how your system operates. If you still have questions, check out our step-by-step guide to installing a kegerator and our video on how draft beer systems work.
