SERVING THE BEER.
There are three key components of serving draught beer.
1. Keeping the beer cold. We recommend keeping it in a large tub with ice. (We can provide you with one of these.) A warm keg takes about 48 hours to cool down again, so it's very important to keep it chilly.
2. Pushing the beer out of the keg. You've got two options here: a hand pump or CO2. Hand pumps are the simplest, but as this introduces oxygen to the keg, the beer must be finished the same day. Using CO2 will keep the beer fresh, so if you don't finish the keg you can continue to drink it afterwards.
3. How to dispense. The easiest option is a party line; a simple hose with a faucet at the end. This is extremely easy to use. The nicest looking option is a jockey box; a cooler with tap handles attached to it and coils inside that cool the beer as it passes through the line.
Check out these videos for step by step instructions on how to use a party pump or jockey box.
