Get the Perfect Pour without the Bartender
Beer dispensers are one of the most common products we get asked about when homeowners are building a wet bar or outdoor kitchen. Who wouldn’t want to have their favorite draft beer on tap without leaving the house? We’ve found that when it comes to these appliances, it’s best to stick to brands that come from a commercial background. One of our foremost brand recommendations is Perlick.
Perlick has been around since 1917 and is based out of Milwaukee, Wisconsin – a town that knows their beer. This company has made quite a name for themselves in the commercial space because of their custom refrigeration and bar offerings. But what many people aren’t aware of is that they also have a luxury line of residential appliances. Perlick Beer Dispensers, in particular, are made for the home but come with the quality you’d expect in the bar or restaurant scene.
RAPIDcool from Keg to Tap
One of the worst bar experiences can be getting a hot or lukewarm beer. The Perlick Beer Dispenser avoids this problem with their RAPIDcool refrigeration system. In addition to the refrigeration box, the beer tower is air cooled and the beer is dispensed with a forced air system. This means that you won’t end up with lukewarm beer sitting between the keg and the tap.
Just the Right Size
Perlick Beer Dispensers come in two sizes and can accommodate two types of kegs. If you’re more limited on space, the 15” models will fit a 1/6 barrel, which equates to about fifty-five 12 ounce bottles. The 24” models can handle either two 1/6 barrels, or one 1/4 barrel (standard or slim sized, and equivalent to about eighty-three 12 ounce bottles). The 24” double tap dispenser model is the perfect solution if you want to keep more than one beer selection on tap.
Cold Brews or Cold Brew
One of the newest accessories for Perlick Beer Dispensers allows you to convert them to use with iced or cold brew coffee. The Iced Coffee Dispenser Kit will include replacement lines and the necessary parts to convert the unit to work with nitrogen dispensed coffee. This is not what we’d consider a straightforward change, so we only advise this if you intend for iced coffee to be the primary use of your Perlick Beer Dispenser.
Perlick also offers both a 2.5 gallon keg accessory (for storing your homemade coffee), and a nitrogen cylinder accessory. Since this coffee keg won’t be under pressure like a beer keg, the nitrogen cylinder is a necessary component for proper dispensing – we recommend ordering them together just to keep things simple. Once setup though, you can look forward to starting off your day at the tap, instead of waiting on a pot of coffee. Not to mention it will help you stay cool on hot Texas days.
Adara Adds Some Elegance
Sometimes form is just as important as function. For those looking for something a little more “designer” than a standard beer tower, Perlick offers the Adara model. This curved chrome beer tower with matching taps lends itself to much more unique bar and kitchen designs. This setup still utilizes the same RAPIDcool technology, keeping your beer ice cold.
Guaranteed to Keep your Suds Cold
While many manufacturers are cutting back on how long their warranties last, Perlick Beer Dispensers come with a three full year warranty. This covers all parts of the unit, ensuring your beverage of choice gets cold and stays cold. In addition, the sealed system is covered for 6 years in total. Perlick stands behind their products.
