' beverage system can deliver any kind of
drinkable liquid. A CO2-pressurized beer tap allows beer
dispensing from a smaller-sized aluminum keg. Note that a
standard 13.2 gallon beer keg will NOT fit inside Chassis.
Chassis prefers serving 5-gallon "party kegs"
and other distributors) because he has a custom-fitted
cooling jacket, and because there is usually less leftover
beer depending on the size of your event. A 5-gallon keg
serves about 50 12-oz cups. For larger events, Chassis
can also use a "pony keg", (i.e. 1/4-barrel or 7.75
U.S. gallons). A pony keg will deliver roughly 80 12-ounce
servings or 160 6-ounce servings so Chassis will need
sufficient plastic cups.
Chassis uses a US Sankey D-System
tap that fits
nearly all domestic and many foreign kegs. Here is a
list of compatible brews
. Note that Bass Ale and Anchor Steam beers are NOT compatible with this system. In case of doubt, Chassis
prefers Sierra Nevada brand beer which is available in a
5-gallon party keg from Bevmo and is quite tasty as well.
It is very important that the keg is pre-chilled
there is rarely time to chill it before the event and
Chassis finds serving warm beer quite upsetting.
For drinks other than beer, a
ball-lock soda keg allows Chassis to dispense wine, mixed
drinks, soft drinks, or water. This can be pressurized with
air or nitrogen for wine and other still drinks, or CO2 for
Champagne, sparkling wine or sparkling water. Chassis is
happy to serve lemonade or fruit juices, but pulp or other
solids will clog his automatic valves, so juices must be
clear or filtered free of solids. Again, an insulated jacket
cooled with iceless freezer packs ensure that Chassis will
always deliver a chilled and delicious beverage.
Chassis is unable to verify ID and thus when serving alcohol
it is assumed the event host will comply will all
regulations concerning licensing and minors.
