CO2 Mini Beer Tap regulator, force carbonate your growler

$19,990

For beer lovers on the go.

It’s an automatic mini beer tap dispensing head with built in regulator for growlers.

Elegant, No Nonsense.

  •  described as classic and elegant
  •  keep your carbonated beverages fresh
  •  not only for beer, use for any liquid you want to dispense
  •  very easy to use and clean
  •  store in the fridge until you are ready to dispense your drink.
  •  customizable with lot of options
  •  stainless steel growler is rugged
  •  CO2 cartridges are inexpensive and readily available
  •  great warranty against craftsmanship
  •  USA Made    

Growlers are popular in the kombucha and craft beer markets because it’s a convenient way of visiting your local supplier for your micro brew or Kombucha, fill it up with 64 ounces of your favorite beverage and you’re ready to go.

Why 64 ounces? It’s a pretty standard refill amount at micro Breweries and Kombucha bars.

The Problem with other similar products in my opinion is that they have too much STUFF or  too many options and it complicates the basic function . . . to dispense your carbonated beverage. 

This product solves It Simply & Easily.

What I have seen on the market has been very creative, but what I wanted to offer was a CO2 Tap head unit that was simple in every way. To clarify, I didn’t want have parts on the product that were un-necessary for the functionality of using it.

8 Gram CO2 food grade air cylinder fits in tap handle, pressurized air then flows into the primary regulator that it pivots on.

The Design

The design we have is a CO2 mini tap head used to pressurize and carbonate your craft beer or kombucha. The system can be used in just about any environment or setting. The tap head itself can be purchased separately so that it can be used on the growler of your choice. Specifically, this design is for the popular wide mouth 64 ounce stainless growlers that are currently on the market.

Stainless containers are a good way to transport your favorite beverage from your local supplier  to your home or outings. And needless to say it won’t break like the glass growlers.

The functionality of our CO2 mini tap head is very simple. To use it, insert the food grade CO2 cartridge into the tap handle… put the cap on and you’re all set to go.

To replace the cartridge

Unscrew the cap from the tap handle, remove the CO2 cartridge, replace the cartridge and cap and you’re ready to start dispensing again.

Well, what are the benefits?

The CO2 will help keep your carbonated beverage fresh and allow you to simply pour your drink with the use of the tap handle. As the designer, I spent a great amount of time trying to create a small and compact package that is practically maintenance free.

Not only is it compact , but you can accessorize it to make it unique to you… There’s a variety of materials that can be used to create a distinctive look to suit you… whether it’s the clean look of all stainless or the more modern materials like carbon fiber. And for the tap handle we have wood or anodized aluminum, but it doesn’t matter… Our CO2 tap head lends itself well to the materials of your choice.. We can also do Titanium..

So… get creative . . . and let us know how you want your growler to look…

We have a very compact, user friendly and  virtually maintenance free tap head system, a tap head that is elegant and easy to tote to and from the craft beer brewery, kombucha bar or to an outing.

What we wanted to offer was a product with timeless looks that will keep in style for years to come. (Not that pluming hardware won't be around for years, it just wont be in style)

Risks and challenges

The working prototypes have been tested with super results, which means the final hurdle is translating the CAD design into production parts.

Obviously, we want to minimize risk, and the best way to do that is to have the capital to transition from prototype to production components. I've had good luck with my Colorado suppliers for many years and they are some of the best businesses in the industry.

What’s more, I will oversee production and work with suppliers that I have worked with for many years.

We have all the pieces in place and ready to go. With your support we can make this product a reality.
