We usually see beer kegs in parties or picnic especially with our family and friends. People who are thirsty drink a lot and so it is very cost effective to have a keg in the available since it also saves you a lot of money. IF you have a keg tap, this device will allow you to release the beer into your drinking cup from the keg. If you do not know how to use a keg tap, then you can waste a lot of beer, and this is why you need to be careful is using it since it is actually easy to use.

The keg tap regulates the release of beer. This uses a lever and through pulling and pressing it, the beer is released. When pressure is released, it pushes the beer up and into the glass. Keg taps work like switches which you can put on or off or it can also be an open-close switch.
To minimize the foam it creates when pouring, place the beer keg in a steady position for a short while; the beer keg should be directly in front of you. The foam builds up when the keg is transported especially when there is too much movement. Let it stay for a while and place the keg where you plan to serve the beer to minimize the foam. You should remove the cap or seal since it is harder to tap with it. However, the pros do not remove the cap or seal because they will not put the beer at risk like you will. If you will do it, you need to play it safe.
Tapping with CO2 is done with portable keg systems. Pressure is received by the keg in a single unit pump and tap combination, which is called party pump. IN this type, the keg and the beer keg tap are separated. You need to attach the pump, and the faucet must be opened to release the pressure in the keg. You can release beer by applying air pressure to the keg by pumping and pushing the lever or the tap handle.
A pony keg or portable beer keg should be consumed in one day because the beer loses its flavor once the air is mixed with the beer. In a traditional keg and on and off valve is used. This types works by gravity and there is no need for air pressure. In this type, you can get your beer by sampling opening or closing the keg when the valve is used.
