Jockey Boxes are ideal for outdoor or party beer dispensing. The jockey box allows you to dispense ice cold beer without having to keep the kegs themselves cool. Beer is pumped into the jockey box and through a stainless steel coil that is submerged in icewater. As it travels through the coil, it is cooled down and comes out nice and cold on the other side. These coils are superior to other brands due to their square coils that stand on legs to allow ice-cold water to chill beer from underneath and have more space between tubes which allows the water to chill beer faster.
This single faucet Jockey Box uses a red colored 48-quart cooler with Ultratherm foam insulation for superior cold retention and rustproofed, leak-resistant drain that allows for drainage of excess water from the cooler. The cooler lid holds open at 95° for easy access and features heavy-duty side handles for easy carrying. Designed to dispense one keg, the jockey box includes a chrome-plated brass faucet with brass lever, a black plastic faucet knob, stainless steel shank and ice box coupler assemblies, and a 3/8"-1/4" O.D. 120' Stainless Steel Coil. The cooler has external dimensions of 25.63" x 14.13" x 14.13" and internal dimensions 19.75" x 9.5" x 11.35".
A stainless coil is far superior for cooling than the "cold plate" style jockey box.
To complete your Jockey Box set up, you will need to add the following products if you do not already have them:
1. Keg Coupler
Whether you plan on tapping an American D System keg or a European Import keg, you can choose from our selection of keg couplers to find the correct coupler to fit your needs.
2. CO2 Regulator
A CO2 regulator helps you control the flow of gas from your CO2 tank to the keg. We have a wide variety of both single gauge regulators, which only display the CO2 output pressure, and dual gauge regulators, which display both CO2 output pressure and volume.
3. CO2 Tank
CO2 cylinders house the CO2 gas that is used to push beer from the keg through the beer line and out of the faucet. The bigger the tank, the more kegs you can dispense before needing to refill it. Generally speaking, it takes about a pound of CO2 to dispense a full size keg.
4. Air Line Assembly
The air line assembly (made up of one length of 5/16" blue air tubing and two plastic air line clamps) allows the CO2 to flow from the regulator into the keg, pushing beer out to the faucet. We have different lengths of air line to choose from.
5. Jumper Line Assembly
The jumper line assembly (made up of 5' of 3/8" Thermoplastic (Super Vinyl) beer tubing and your choice of wing nut or hex nut fittings) connects the keg to the back of the jockey box.
6. Gauge Cage
Protect your regulator with a heavy duty gauge cage, which helps prevent the gauges from being damaged if the CO2 tank is accidentally knocked over.
7. Drip Tray
A drip tray can be installed below the faucet to catch any runoff beer, minimizing mess and making cleanup a breeze.
8. Cleaning Kit
To make it as convenient as possible to keep your jockey box dispense system clean between uses, we give you the option to add on one of our quick and easy cleaning kits.

|Cold beer all day long!|
Auburn Hills, MI
|Comments:||I purchased this to serve my homebrew at a friend's wedding last weekend. It worked flawlessly. Simply hooked up my corny kegs to the box and CO2 tank, slowly turned the pressure up to get the beer flowing into the line. Once beer was coming out I set pressure to 35psi and added ice/water to the box; nice and cold.|
The kegs were at about 70 degrees that day but the beer coming from the tap was perfectly chilled. We went through 25 gallons of homebrew without a single issue.
The only reason I'm not giving a perfect 5 starts is that the cooler lid does not hold open at 95 degrees. minor issue and I would give it 4.5 stars if the rating system allowed.
|Bottom Line:||I would recommend this product.|
