Keg FAQ

Q: I’m picking up my keg in advance of my event. How should I store my keg?

A: To ensure the freshest quality beer, we encourage you to keep kegs cold at all times. Too much movement and loss of temperature to the keg can result in a lower quality of beer.

Q: How do I tap a keg?

A: We are happy to show you when you pick up your keg. When operating your tap, the main thing to remember is “don’t over-pump.” Pump the tap just a couple of times with the faucet open until you get a nice steady flow, then stop pumping. (Over-pumping introduces air and causes excess foam.

Q: How long will kegged beer keep? Why does it go flat?

A: If dispensing with CO2 and kept cold, a keg will last for three months after the date on your keg collar. If dispensing with an air pump, your beer will generally stay fresh for approximately 12 hours. Tapping your keg with a party pump is like opening a 2 liter bottle of soda, which replaces CO2 with air and causes the beer to go flat. More importantly, the flavor will begin to degrade as soon as the beer is exposed to oxygen.
