Most modern draft beer systems operate using the same principle: with the help of gas (CO2 or nitrogen), beer is moved from its container out through the draft beer tower faucet where it can be poured into a glass.
In a typical draft beer system setup, when you pull the tap on the faucet, the pressurized CO2 from the gas tank at the end of the system pushes the beer out of the keg. The right pressure is determined by the size of the installation and the type of beer used.
Upon entering a keg via an air line, the gas passes through the keg coupler. When it is attached to a keg, a coupler to what’s called a spear inside the keg. The gas from the tank pushes the beer from the keg out into the beer line.
Oftentimes, the beer needs to be cooled so either the whole system or parts of it can be cooled or insulated via a variety of methods depending on the type of the system (see below).
There are two main types of draft beer systems depending on their placement and configuration - direct-draw draft beer systems and long-draw draft beer systems.
✓ Direct-draw draft beer systems
In direct-draw system often found in many small bars and beer pubs, the keg is mounted right underneath the bar and feeds directly up into the draft beer tower or faucet.
The main advantage of this type of system is that you will always have your keg(s) at hand, which minimizes waste since the beer is pulled directly into the faucet.
✓ Long-draw draft beer systems
With this type of system, it gets a bit more complicated. One of its main components is a power pack, which is a refrigeration unit that houses glycol, a food-grade antifreeze.
The glycol is pumped out of the frozen bath in the power pack all the way up to the tower via a trunk line and then back again to make the beer stays cold due to coming in contact with the glycol line(s) in the trunk line. That also prevents the beer from getting all foamy.
