Which Beer Tap Should I Choose?
Posted on January 23, 2012 @ 2:28 am
Beer taps, also known as beer faucets, are simple devices that allow you to serve beer easily and without any hassle. Although beer taps are very simple, there’s a huge range of choice when deciding which one to buy. All beer taps are placed into four main categories. A brief overview of each of these categories should help you decide which one you should choose.
The rear closing faucet is the standard beer tap, and probably the one that you have seen most. The tap handle has a lever action which allows the beer to flow easily from the faucet and into your glass. The valve is at the rear end, hence the name “rear closing”. This type of beer tap is easy to assemble and clean and can be found without any trouble, due to its popularity. It’s simple to use and very few people have problems with this type of faucet.
The front closing faucet is almost the same as the rear closing one; the only significant difference is that the valve is at the front on this one. This type of beer tap is available in stainless steel. Many experts recommend stainless steel because of its durability and hygienic qualities.
Creamer faucets are very similar to the rear closing ones. One of the good things about creamer faucets is the fact that when you push back on the tap handle, air is sucked into the beer and this provides a nice, thick foam on the top of your drink.
The variable flow control faucet is the perfect one for a lot of people. You can control the flow of beer and adjust it so it’s exactly what you want. These beer taps have a very unique look that some people find attractive; however, they can be fairly expensive to purchase.
