Beginner’s Guide to Craft Beer and Draft Beer Dispensing System

If you are a beer lover, do you know the difference between a craft beer and a draft beer? A draft beer refers to a beer that is “on tap”, meaning “not bottled”, whereas a craft beer is also called a “microbrew” as brewed by small breweries which are more expensive. The next time you visit a bar or restaurant, try ordering a draft beer because it is fresher than beers on the bottled section. A draught beer is drawn out of a keg and doesn’t have a long shelf life, only about two days or so. A microbrewery is independently owned, producing small amounts of beer or root beer, typically smaller than corporate breweries. The brewing technique, flavor, and quality is greatly emphasized in microbreweries. There are developments in craft brewing, wherein the use of cans by craft beer brewers doubled as companies started using cans for beverages.

A draft beer dispensing system plays an important role in the overall satisfaction of your customers in your bar or restaurant. It is easy to hire a professional to install your draft dispensing system but it is nice to have a basic understanding of how it works to show. The different parts of a draft beer dispensing system include the CO2 or mixed tanks, primary regulator, air lines, gas blender, secondary regulator, draft beer coupler, beer lines, glycol or glyce trunk line, glycol or glyce chiller, draft beer tower, draft beer faucets, and drip tray. A CO2 or Nitrogen tank uses pressurized gas, wherein the pressurized gas push the beer into the keg through the coupler, and forces it out and eventually travels up to the beer tap so you can pour a pint on demand. The primary regulator ensures that there is controlled pressure inside your tank to prevent dispensing a foamy mess that nobody wants to drink. The air lines (green and purple, or red) are food-grade vinyl lines helping transport the gas from the tank to the rest of your beer dispensing system, which is attached directly from the tank to the rest of the dispensing system. You do not have to maintain a specifically blended gas tank with the help of a gas blender because it allows you to dispense different beers basing on required CO2 and nitrogen.

Craft beer tastes better than “beer water” which is mass produced and mass marketed by larger companies because craft brewers spend time to ensure that they produce quality beer using amazing ingredients. Craft beer is not watered down like mass produced beer because craft brewers are passionate in producing high-quality beer for their customers.
