The American Sanke Tap (D-Style) is the most commonly-used beer tap in the U.S. If you’re going to serve commercial beer that was made in the US, this is the style tap you’ll need.
Our American Sanke tap features a lock-down mechanism that produces a satisfying “click” when engaged. Its heavy-duty construction is designed to withstand even frequent commercial use, so you know it’ll last for years at home. It features a built-in pressure relief valve for safety, and it is manufactured by Taprite, a U.S. company.
To dispense beer, gas is pushed into the keg through the tap’s side port and the beer exits through the top port.
The tail piece, hex nut or gasket for dispensing beer out of the top port must be purchased separately. We offer a pre-made kit with a 1/4” tailpiece (D1720B), as well as a range of other tailpiece sizes to match whatever diameter beer line you’re using.
