The Brewnique Faucet opens and closes by pinching a flexible tube that is contained within the faucet housing. Unlike traditional faucets, beer never comes into contact with the porous and hard to clean metallic surfaces of the faucet housing, which are ideal surfaces for yeast and contamination to attach and grow.Every two weeks, line cleaning must take place, to flush out contamination built up in the lines and inside the faucets. Lines are drained and a caustic solution is flushed through. Tap faucets must be disassembled and brushed clean.
The Brewnique faucet internal tube is simply continuation of the beer line, and uses the caustic to clean it. No beer ever comes in contact with the metallic surfaces of the faucet.
In a high volume commercial location the tubes only need to be replaced every six months. More sales and less waste combine with favorable keg pricing to create enhanced draught profitability.
