Authentically pour traditional Czech Pilsners with the Lukr European Side Pull Faucet.
This one-of-a-kind draft faucet features unique side pull action for recreating the traditional methods for pouring Czech Pilsners, most notably the Pilsner Urquell brand. A side pull faucet is similar to a dimmer switch because the more you turn the lever, the “brighter” the beer in your glass gets. Opening the side faucet handle just a little creates dense, wet foam, while completely opening the faucet provides you with a typical flow of beer. A micro screen inside the faucet aerates the beer in a similar fashion to a nitro faucet.
This is a Nostalgie style Lukr Side Pull faucet that is constructed from stainless steel and is designed to be inserted into the glass as you pour. An additional flow control knob on the side of the faucet allows for fine-tuning of your pour. We also carry the Baroko style Lukr faucet.
There are three styles for pouring Pilsner Urquell and other Czech Pilsners. The Hladinka is the standard method that provides you with a mug half full of beer and half full of foam (or about three fingers worth), which gives you a balanced mix of the bitterness and sweetness in the beer. Šnyt is a smaller beer poured into a large glass consisting of two parts beer, three parts foam, and one part empty glass. This is refreshing and less-filling pour gives you room to enjoy more beer or food during a session. Then there is Mlíko, which is a mug full of sweet and creamy wet foam that really shows off the hops and aromatics of the beer. This is traditionally enjoyed as a dessert beer.
