When you are ready to have a party and your friends show up with a keg, you can either use the one that the liquor store gives you or you can have your own. There is an advantage to having your own.
First of all, do you have any idea where that coupler has been? Do you have any idea who the people are that used it before you? Or worse yet, do you know if the liquor store has a policy of cleaning and sterilizing their equipment when it's returned? Chances are, you don't. The reason I say that is because I don't.
I don't have to worry about it. I have my own!
Not only is cleanliness a factor, but also wear and tear. If you get a coupler from the liquor store that has a few years wear and tear on it, who knows what you are getting. If it doesn't pour right, you can be wasting a buttload of beer. If it doesn't have a good seal, you are getting a lot of air in your beer and who knows what else?
I don't have to worry about that at all because...I have my own! Get your own! Trust me, it's much better than going through all the problems I just described.
We have keg couplers for all beers, domestic and imports. If you aren't sure what valve you have on your keg, just take a look in our tap and valve guide. You'll be able to find your system and then look around on our site for the Coupler you need.
Most liquor stores carry the same type of kegs so that when you purchase a coupler, it will fit all their kegs. But, you have to keep in mind that different beers have different types of kegs. You'll need the right coupler for the kind of beer you like.
Also, you can purchase your own keg and get it refilled at your local distributor or local brewery. That's when you make all your friends jealous and you become the consummate beer enthusiast. It will put you on a whole new level. Get used to the accolades!
