Stainless Steel Nitro Beer Faucet
The nitro beer faucet is often called a stout faucet because they are famous for pouring Guinness stout. Find replacement parts here or through the parts tab above.
Nitro Beer Faucets are specially designed to pour nitrogenated beers. Nitrogenated beers are beers primarily carbonated with N2 (nitrogen). When you see something like 75/25 this is what it is referring to. 75% nitrogen and 25% carbon dioxide (CO2).
Nitrogen is actually rather difficult to dissolve into beer. However, once it dissolves into beer is very hard to get out of beer.
In order to pull the N2 out of solution the beer must go through the restrictor plate in the nozzle of the nitro beer faucet at a relatively high pressure. Relatively high in comparison to a normal Co2 beer faucet.
After the beer goes through the restrictor plate it flows over a beer flow straightener. We know, that is a very technical and fancy name. The beer flow straightener re-converges the beer into a perfect stream.
This is a short video showing you what it may look like if you don’t have one or both of these pieces in place.
