Micro Matic is a beverage dispensing expert. The company is a major supplier of draught beer equipment in over 120 countries throughout the world, so it’s safe to say it’s an authority on draft beer systems. Occasionally, Micro Matic releases cool videos focused on beverage dispensing education. Last year, we featured a series of Micro Matic videos explaining various keg coupler systems. Now, enjoy this video explaining the 10 key elements to building the ultimate commercial draft beer system. The first five are below. You’ll have to watch the video above to get the rest. And awaaay we go…
- Keg storage. It’s critical to keep temps at 38 degrees. Too cold and it makes it difficult to create a good head of foam, impacting the flavor profile of the beer. Too warm creates dispensing issues.
- Gas blender: This unit maintains carbonation from the first glass to the last. It optimizes quality and maximizes keg yield. On-site blending of CO2 and nitrogen also lowers cost.
- Secondary regulator panels: This dedicated keg pressure management unit allows pressure adjustment to each individual keg.
- Stainless steel contact: Steel contact improves hygiene and service life. Micro Matic notes it’s also the “brewer’s choice” for beer contact, ensuring product integrity.
- Profit maximizer unit: This specialty piece of equipment maximizes profit and minimizes waste. When the keg empties, the beer line remains full with a maximizer unit, reducing pour cost and maximizing keg yield.
Watch the video above to learn about power packs, trunklines, taps, glassware rinsers and the 14-day cleaning cycle. Then visit Micro Matic for the largest selection of draft beer dispensing systems and kegerators on the web.
