Draught System Supply & Install Service

At Clear-Beer Draught Services, we install draft systems that preserve the flavor and aroma of beer created by the breweries, and we understand that a Great Beer must travel through a quality draft system to arrive in the glass in perfect condition.

With the many draught taps in use in many establishments today, it’s easy to assume serving a quality draft beverage must be relatively easy. But behind the pull of a handle you will find a draught system that requires precise operating conditions, and regular maintenance to ensure the proper flow of high-quality beverages.

The professionals at Clear-Beer Draught Services will provide you with a high quality draught system that meets your budget while also meeting the needs of a quality beverage delivered to your customer with every pour!

At Clear-Beer Draught Services, we’re experts at getting the beer from keg to client in perfect condition, and our goal is to install turnkey draught beverage system solutions for bars, restaurants, taverns and more. We collaborate with every client to create the unique systems that perfectly meet their needs, and we’re pleased to offer our services throughout the Niagara Region. 

BENEFITS OF DRAUGHT BEER SYSTEMS

There’s a common myth that beer in the bottle is better than brews served on tap. The trouble is that some draught systems and improperly maintained with draught lines and ancillary equipment spoiling delectable beverages. With custom draft beer systems professionally installed, staff training on proper usage, and regular servicing and maintenance, your draft beer will offer a crisp bite, full body, and rich, aromatic bouquet that simply cannot be beat by a bottled brew.

That’s just the start of the benefits you’ll enjoy with a Clear-Beer Draught Services draught system, though. For one thing, kegs are the most environmentally responsible way to offer beer – they’re returnable, refillable, recyclable, and they can last up to 30 years and serve up a whopping 27,000 glasses in their usable life, equating to 1,125 cases of bottles or cans (which often end up in the landfill).

Perhaps more importantly for responsible business owners, draught systems are economically advantageous. With greater operational efficiency and product yield, draft beer offers much higher profit margins than serving from bottles or cans.

Plus, draught systems aren’t just for beer anymore. Clear-Beer Draught Services installs custom systems for cold brew providing new options for customers at restaurants, bars, hotels and more. Whether you’re serving beer, wine, cocktails, or anything else on draught, our systems ensure that each beverage is served at the peak of freshness and precision temperatures, so your customers always enjoy a consistently satisfying experience.  

Draught System Line & Ancillary Cleaning Service

 

Clean beer lines are integral to maintaining the quality of craft beer.

Small and independent craft brewers devote a lot of time, effort and resources to make the best possible beer for consumers. Ingredients are handpicked, the latest technological advances in brewing are used and batches of beer are tested throughout the process to ensure superior quality. That hard work can be ruined in the time it takes the beer to travel from the keg to the glass if the draught system/lines have not been properly cleaned and maintained.

The enemies of draught beer may include the following:

Yeast

White or grey-colored surface growth found on beer system components (faucets, keg couplers and drains) that are exposed to air.

Mold

Brown or black-colored surface growth found on beer system components (faucets, keg couplers and drains) that are exposed.

Beer stone

Grey or brown in color, (calcium oxalate) builds up and eventually flakes off if the system is not properly maintained, potentially ending up in the pint and having a negative effect on taste.

Bacteria

Beer-spoiling bacteria will ruin a beer’s flavor and aroma. While these micro-organisms are not health risks, they will cause buttery off-flavors called diacetyl, or sour, vinegary off-flavors called acetic acid.

All of these enemies of beer are easily preventable by regular line cleaning, but if left unattended will inevitably lead to dissatisfied customers and lost sales.

Here are BA-defined minimum standards for draught cleanliness:

  • At a minimum, you should clean your draught line every two weeks with an alkaline detergent cleaner to remove protein and films that build up quickly.

  • The cleaning chemical should be recirculated through the product line for a minimum of 15 minutes at a velocity up to two gallons/minute. Soaking product lines is not recommended, but the cleaning solution should be left in-line for at least 20 minutes if recirculation is not an option.

  • All faucets should be completely disassembled and cleaned every two weeks. Make sure to replace any damaged seals or gaskets.

  • Acid cleaning should be performed quarterly to remove inorganic compounds such as “beer stone,” which are mineral deposits.

  • All vinyl jumpers and vinyl direct draw lines should be replaced annually.

  • Couplers should be replaced based on condition. Inspect the coupler bottom seal and O-rings, to make sure they are properly lubricated with a food-grade lubricant.

  • Good quality, well-maintained couplers, faucets and shanks can last a lifetime. Parts that are 100 percent stainless steel are the most reliable and will provide the best quality experience for your staff and customers.

  • Always make sure to rinse lines with clean water after cleaning!

  • Draught lines may need to be replaced after pouring root beer, fruit or pepper-flavored beers, sour beers, margaritas or ciders in order to avoid permanent flavor influence.
