Conventional wisdom has no place at Perlick. That's because Perlick's drive for innovation is legendary, leaving convention for the other guys to play with. Now, wisdom in general... well, that's another story.

Perlick's new 650SS Stainless Steel Flow Control Faucet is a classic example. It has all of Perlick's exclusive forward sealing design features, as well as a flow compensator. By adjusting the flow control handle, you can adjust the restriction for hard to pour brands, allowing you more control over your flow. You can also adjust the flow control handle to slow the flow for pouring sampler glasses, flights or growlers, as well as to reduce the amount of foam when pouring into a frosted glass.

The Perlick forward sealing design features a revolutionary ball and o-ring that prevents beer from being exposed to air. As a result, the handle lever doesn't stick, and there is no build up of mold and bacteria in the faucet body. It also has fewer internal parts for better reliability.

  • Stainless Steel construction - won't pit or tarnish, will not taint the flavor of the beer, and is also suitable for wine
  • Patented forward sealing design eliminates the need for a valve shaft exposed to beer and air
  • Spout angle is more vertical allowing a more thorough draining after each pour - no horizontal area for beer to collect
  • Polished interior - smooth flow, less agitation and less foaming
  • Easy to clean - may be cleaned in place

Better than I'd hoped for

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!


Great Product

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.


Great Faucet!

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


bubble troubles away

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.


These are a must if you hate foam!
Tommy beergut

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.

Preventing leaking (ongoing dripping) from Perlick 650SS: last night somewhere over a liter of stout dribbled out of my tap -- quite a mess. I've read that low pressure makes this more likely (mine is at 14PSI), and that compression bonnet tightening may help. Also, that the bonnet should not be too tight. I hand tightened it a fraction of a turn -- it was slightly less tight than my other 3 taps. All are new and on their first kegs. Any wisdom to share?

Hello, Sorry to hear that you've been experiencing some leaking issues. One thing to consider is having some replacement o-rings on hand for the faucets. Over time and with cleaning the rubber rings become hard and brittle allowing leakage.

How does the flow control work? Which direction to slow down flow and less head?
by New to kegerator on April 13, 2019
Typically the lever is pushed upwards to open the gap to provide more flow.

What is the inside diameter of the faucet nozzle on the 650SS?
