The maintenance and cleaning procedures for draft beer systems depends on the type of system, including whether the refrigeration is self-contained or remote. “With keg boxes, bar operators need to be aware of CO2 pressure, rotate stock and not leave kegs in the cooler too long,” says Drew Beaty, who handles fleet and inventory at Nashville, Tenn.-based A Head for Profits.

When choosing beer and wine dispensing systems, it helps to be educated on how the different types operate, cost considerations and maintenance requirements.

Operators commonly use draft beer systems to maintain or chill beer to a specific temperature while transporting the brew when they cannot locate the keg directly at the bar.

Draft beer requires dispensing equipment that efficiently supplies the product to the point of service. The dispensing equipment works in conjunction with refrigeration equipment that keeps beverage temperatures at the optimum 36 degrees F during storage and between 38 degrees F and 40 degrees F while serving.
