What Type of Keg Coupler Do You Need?

Keg Transportation and Preparation
When transporting your keg, the ultimate goal is for the beer to arrive at your event site with as little agitation to the keg as possible. Some of this may sound like small details, but kegs are easily disturbed and will lead to foamy beer.
Here are some helpful tips...
*Allow keg to chill (32-38 degrees) and settle for a minimum of 2-4 hours (ideally overnight).
*Schedule pick-up of the keg later in the day for lower outdoor temperature.
*Put the keg on ice in transit to your destination as the temperature will rise in transport.
*Kegs are heavy - have a helper.
*Don't roll the keg or put it on it's side in transport.
*Be sure the keg is secured in the vehicle via a bungee cord or rope.
*Drive cautiously - abrupt stops, hard turns, & hitting potholes will cause agitation.
***If you choose to set up your jockey box and keg yourself, a step by step set of directions will be provided upon jockey box drop-off.***
