Draft Beer Systems

Draft Beer SystemsWe will help build your draft beer system to ensure the highest quality pour every time.

Pouring the perfect pint is more than just the skillful art of a well-trained bartender, it all starts with a well-built draft beer system. The draft beer system design process starts with an understanding of the dispensing environment and the expectations of our customers. From at home kegerators to commercial draft beer systems, many key factors work together to maximize taste, quality and profitability. Micro Matic USA knows how these systems work from the inside out, and will help you to build your draft beer system to ensure you get the highest quality pour every time.

The Power Pack is used to refrigerate a mix of water and FDA approved glycol which is re-circulated at a temperature between 29 – 32˚ F to maintain a brewery recommended keg storage temperature of 38˚ F. Glycol cooled systems are not designed to lower beer dispensing temperatures. The system is designed to deliver the beer temperature in the walk-in-cooler.

Glycol cooled systems are installed for long runs with a maximum length of 500 feet. Connecting multiple beer dispensing stations in a single system makes a glycol cooled system highly functional and cost efficient.

Dispensing Up to 25 Feet. Cold air from the walk-in cooler box is forced alongside beer lines to keep them cold as they travel to the dispense tower.

A "shaft within a shaft" is created: one for the product and outgoing cold air, one for the return (warm) air. Together they form a continuous air loop. This single air shaft system, dispenses up to 25 feet!

A walk-in cooler stores both the kegs and the beer lines for delivery of product to shanks mounted directly through a wall. A drip tray mounts to the outside wall to contain any spillage. Beer is dispensed at the same temperature it is stored in the walk-in.

Straightforward dispensing: shanks and faucets are mounted through drip tray directly into walk-in. Direct draw system offers the benefit of no hidden lines, making service and access easier.

10 Key Elements Draft Beer System

Best practices for pouring the perfect pint: Optimize profits & quality.

  • Dedicate the walk-in cooler for kegs
  • - Temperature is critical to taste and profits. Dedicate a walk-in cooler store all your kegs and maintain them at the ideal 38° F
  • - Too cold – difficult to generate a "head of foam" impacting taste
  • - Too warm – foamy beer will result in profits being poured down the drain
  • - Maintain carbonation from the first to the last glass dispensed from the keg
  • - A gas blender optimizes quality and maximizes keg yield
  • - On-site blending of CO2 and Nitrogen lowers operating costs
  • - More cost effective than buying pre-mixed cylinders
  • - Dedicated keg pressure management
  • - Different beer styles require specific gas pressure settings
  • - Secondary regulators ensure each keg is operating under the optimum pressure setting
  • - Utilizing stainless steel improves the system’s life and hygiene
  • - Stainless steel reduces build up and makes your beer system easier to clean
  • - The PRO-MAX does exactly what it says, it optimizes profits by maximizing return on keg investment
  • - After a keg empties, replace the keg without refilling your beer line and dumping foam down the drain
  • - Replace keg, then simply reset the Profit Maximizer, save beer and save money
  • - The power pack maintains the temperature of the beer in your glycol beer system from the walk in cooler to the beer dispenser
  • - Place in a well-ventilated and accessible place for easy servicing
  • - Secondary regulators ensure each keg is operating under the optimum pressure setting
  • - Maintain beer cooling and integrity while preventing flavor migration
  • - Patented cold blocks deliver optimum cooling
  • - The module construction eliminates internal connections and the possibility of leaks
  • - Constructed with stainless steel lines, shanks and faucets to maintain the beer’s integrity all the way through the beer taps
  • - Properly cleaned glassware provides enhanced aroma and taste, the perfect foam head, and sparkling clear beer free of gas bubbles
  • - Glasses must be cleaned with beer friendly detergents
  • - Use a rinser before pouring makes the perfect pint that much easier to pour
  • - Periodic system cleaning maintains brewery-fresh taste
  • - Beer is a food product and draft beer systems need to be cleaned every 2 weeks
  • - Utilize a three-step cleaning process using a recirculating electric pump to create a turbulent flow
