1st Rnd Beer 101

Our draft beer system was designed by Micromatic USA, nationally recognized as the premier installer of draft beer dispensing equipment in the USA. Our system is proudly installed by locally owned and operated American Draft Systems. Our draft beer system is custom designed to consistently deliver a fresh, cold, high-quality product, with all the natural flavor and aromas envisioned by the brewer.

The Power Pak

This is the workhorse of the beer dispensing system. The Power Pak plays a vital role in maintaining a constant temperature from keg to tap, ensuring a consistent pour. Our double 1 ½ HP units use a modern heat exchanger to cool the beer, which provides a much more energy-efficient cold beer than the old glycol bath cooling units. This state-of-the-art technology is one of the reasons we pour the best pint every time.

Tapping Equipment

This equipment connects the kegged beer to the draft system. Our beer lines are individually gas regulated, and any beer connections are made with only the highest-quality stainless components. By eliminating plastic components and only using stainless products, we ensure our beer tastes exactly how the brewer intended, each and every time.

The Trunk Housing

The housing routes beer lines from the cooler keg to the dispensing head. But not all trunk housings are created equally, which is why we used Newton's custom engineering. Our beer lines are vapour-sealed to coolant lines for the entire length of the beer system.

Dispensing Towers

The towers are engineered to deliver a cold product every time. Insulated dispensing heads, combined with pure copper coolant lines and a cast-in-place aluminum cold block, maintain chilled beverage temperatures right up to the faucet. Specially balanced restrictors control flow and ensure a perfect beer with every pour.

That's how we always pour the best first round in the business.
