Bars and brewpubs are facing more and more pressure to provide a wider range of beers on tap. This is directly related to the craft beer movement, which has created a growing consumer demand to try different styles of beer made by different breweries. This, in turn, has created some challenges for bars and restaurants.
One of the biggest obstacles faced by bar owners and operators is the logistics of serving these wide tap selections. With a traditional, glycol cooled system, beer must be transported from the kegs to a beer tower that is often at a distance from the walk-in where the keg is stored. This can be problematic.
