A draft beer faucet may look like a pretty basic piece of equipment but we know that there is no such thing as “unimportant” when it comes to beer dispensing.
The standard beer faucet is made of brass or chrome-plated brass. It features a ⅜’’ threaded lever for tap handles that pull forward to pour and push back to stop the flow of beer. It attaches to the shank or tower via a coupling nut and tightens with a spanner wrench.

As with beer faucets, shanks come in two main varieties:
