Clean beer taps and lines are absolutely imperative — at least if you are interested in successful on-premise beer sales, returning customers and growing margins. The hoses which beer flows through from a keg to a dispensing nozzle need to be cleaned after every keg. They’re pressurized to keep air out, preventing the beer from losing its carbonation. Small amounts of beer always get caught in those lines where it sits, dries and leaves behind beer-souring residues and bacteria.
How do you keep taps and tap lines clean? Well, let’s throw it over to ThumbCoast Brewing Co. in Port Huron, Mich. According to the company’s website:
We never cut corners because it’s easier. We never serve beer, whether it be ours or someone else’s, unless it meets the highest standards of quality. That means ensuring our beer lines are kept clean to preserve the quality and taste of the beer; we clean them every 2-3 weeks.
