Better than I'd hoped for
by:shiv (09-16-2015)
West Chester PA
Comments:My first pour was always heady and to complicate matters I have two tap heads with two different beers. This is exactly what I needed to regulate flow and get a perfect pour every time. Very well made does not stick and operated flawlessly. I think the beer even tastes better!
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Great Product
by:TK (04-25-2015)
Reading, PA
Comments:Bought one to start. Very solid build. Easy installation and love the flow restrictor for those tough to pour brews.

Worked so well I ordered one for my second tap within a week. Can't wait to use the restrictor next time I fill a growler @ home.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Great Faucet!
by:Steve (04-02-2015)

Comments:It actually works as advertised which is rare these days. The flow control handle will let you slow the flow all the way down to nothing or wide open. I got this faucet to help with some foaming issues that i was having but ended up increasing my beer line length instead which worked well. I would assume it would be great for beers that are dispensed at higher pressures. It has more internal parts because of the flow control mechanism so it could be more subject to bacteria, etc. and may be tougher to keep clean
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
bubble troubles away

Comments:This 650ss is a work of art
I use them directly on top of the keg and now can keep the beer as co2 charged as I like and it will pour slowly with the pressure valve on low with NO FOAM or as desired. I am ecstatic now not having flat-ish or foamy beer having had problems for a long time. With a short Knob it fits inside my converted freezer. I am so happy I purchased 4 of them and for the other two kegs I have, it is easy to slide the tap on a a different ball lock keg.
Years from now the price will be forgotten but the quality will endure.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
These are a must if you hate foam!
by:Tommy beergut (01-27-2015)

Comments:Ideally, you want your regulator to keep the exact pressure needed to dispense your beer perfectly at all times. In my experience using CO2, that is very difficult. The first pour is always foamy, then pressure dips after a few pours, you turn up the pressure to compensate, foam again, the cycle continues... Enter the flow control faucet. It gives you an additional valve to regulate pressure at the faucet. On the first pour, turn the valve mostly shut, and open it slowly for a perfect pour. When the pressure dips and you turn it up, use the valve to control unexpected pressure spikes. Once you use these, you will wonder how you lived without them.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.

Great faucet that is worth the splurge
by:Joe (12-26-2014)

Comments:As a homebrewer and avid craft beer fan, it can be difficult keeping different styles on tap and properly dispensing with respect to the co2. This faucet solves all the usual issues associated with having multiple beers and styles on tap. In addition, the faucet allows you to fill a range of glasses from tasting size to growlers without spilling or creating beer waste and it is constructed to last.

Why I like it the most is because it allows me to use a single regulator to manage two taps. I can push 5-8lbs to two different beers and if the one taps a little fast while other taps a little slow, I can regulate the dispensing flow at the tap rather than at the regulator. For example, I currently have an IPA and a brown ale on tap. The wheat in the IPA's grain bill creates a nice head, but it also makes dispensing the beer tricky because it can form a large foam head at 5-8lbs of pressure. On the other side, the brown ale pours like a champ at 5-8lbs. The dilemma here is that on a single regulator I'd have to turn down the pressure at the bottle, which can be a pain if your bottle is housed inside your kegerator or keezer. However, these taps allow me to push the same pressure and instead regulate the dispensing rate at the tap.

In other words, what you save with these taps is the fun game of constantly opening your kegerator to adjust the pressure or reaching behind or alongside it to regulate air pressure. The person who would benefit most from these is someone who doesn't have the $ to invest in a regulator for each beer they are dispensing or someone who wants to be able to get consistent pours no matter the vessel being filled.

Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Excellent faucet
by:Mike (12-14-2014)
Chicago, IL
Comments:I have three of these on my kegerator, paired with Kegco SS shanks going thru the refrigerator door.
Forward sealing design is very user friendly
Clean look and very nice polish job from the factory
Flow control- I look back and wonder how I got by without it before- no extra line needed to control pour speed, nice for the first pour when the faucet is "warm," great for filling small glasses and finishing filling growlers. If you're thinking about getting this for one of the taps on your multi-tap setup, just bite the bullet and do it for all of them, you'll be happy every time there's an expected-or unexpected need to slow it down.
Threads are nice and have the standard back-off nut so you can always get your tap handle to face the right way.
Lastly, don't forget to be ready to actually turn the faucet off when you're holding a near-full growler in one hand and fading the flow with your other...gets me every so often :D
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.

Comments:Great faucet for the keezer that I built. 99% drip free. And great adjustment for the beer flow since i use one manifold to feed six kegs.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Great purchase

Comments:I love these beer faucets. We pour a lot of beer samplers in 4 oz glasses. These faucets allow us to pour them with minimal waste. Perfect for tap bars.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.

Perfect pours
by:Dave (11-14-2014)
Virginia
Comments:This faucet is great. I put this on a inexpensive Kegerator and now it pours like the best. Every beer is coming out with the perfect amount of head. You just adjust the flow to put the perfect head on your pour. I even turned the CO2 up a bit to keep the carbonation and can still get the pour just right. Even the first pour of the day is working nicely. It seems like this should be standard equipment. Money well spent.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
quality part
by:Peter (09-24-2014)
Suttons Bay, MI
Comments:We are a sparkling winery and use the product as a way to slow our pours down and reduce foaming (pouring from KeyKegs). So far this has worked just as well as products costing nearly twice as much. Delivery and all communication from Beverage Factory were great.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
