Draught systems are made up of a closed gas pressure system which must be installed in accordance with the British Beer & Pub Assocation Pressure Code of Examination, by a competent person working to a written scheme of examination. If this has not be done it may likley void any insurance you may have.
If you bought a cake would you serve it with a chainsaw? Probably not. So why would you serve kegged beer using equipment that will change how it is supposed to taste and pour? As we install exactly to brewery specification we use flash coolers and full closed pressure systems that allow us to make the adjustments required for each individual product. Table top coolers and kegerators have limitations and require additional equipment to serve most beers correctly to brewery specification. They also have limited cooling control which can create issues when pouring at high capacity. Whilst they have their place for certain products such as KeyKegs, that are not supported by national size breweries.
If you need to contact us in an emergency after office hours please call the phone number provided on your booking confirmation. This number is linked directly to the manager on duty. Please note that we can not answer any sales queries on this number.

Our technicians will test and demonstrate the equipment on-site. We will provide you with a troubleshooting guide for reference with an out-of-hours phone number that you can use in emergencies. In the rare case of equipment failure we will attend site to fix the install.
