Whenever family and friends have a party or go out for a picnic, they usually have beer kegs available. People who are thirsty drink a lot and so it is very cost effective to have a keg in the available since it also saves you a lot of money. IF you have a keg tap, this device will allow you to release the beer into your drinking cup from the keg. Keg taps are really easy to use but care must be given in handling it so that you don’t waste the beer, which can happen if you do not know how to use it correctly. Foam can be released from the keg tap if not done properly, and it can go all over your face or your body. You would see people doing this but it is not as easy as it looks.
In order to get beer from the keg, you need to control the keg tap. This uses a lever and through pulling and pressing it, the beer is released. When pressure is released, it pushes the beer up and into the glass. The keg tap is technically a switch and may be an on-off or a close-open switch.

A portable keg system can be tapped with CO2. Pressure is received by the keg in a single unit pump and tap combination, which is called party pump. Here, the keg and the tap are separated. You need to attach the pump, and the faucet must be opened to release the pressure in the keg. Air pressure is applied to the keg by pumping and when the lever is pushed, which is the tap handle, beer is released.
A pony keg or portable beer keg should be consumed in one day because the beer loses its flavor once the air is mixed with the beer. An on and off valve is used in a traditional keg.
