About

Think of your options! (None of these companies are associated with or are supporting ProTap - you already knew that, right?)

Why ProTap?

Do you wish you could do something different and fun at your next get-together with family and friends?  The ProTap is perfect for taking your party to the next level.  Imagine serving your friends cold drinks on tap right from your kitchen counter!    

How it works:

Simply insert a standard growler, wine bottle, or one of many premixed beverages (margarita, mai tai, daiquiri, etc.) into the ProTap.  Use one of our 6 included adaptors, chill, and you are ready to serve.  ProTap uses CO2 pressure to dispense your beverage just like commercial bars. The CO2 also keeps your beer or wine fresh for 10 to 14 days.  No more flat beer or wasted wine- hurray!

The "Let's Do This" basic kit. It all starts here.

Why is ProTap superior?

  • ProTap will dispense almost any cold beverage. You would need to buy multiple machines to do what the ProTap can do.
  • There is no need to purchase additional supplies. The 6 included adaptors each fit a different container which cover a majority of the bottles on the market.

Containers that will fit inside the ProTap

  • ½ or 1 gallon growler
  • ½ or 1 gallon bottle of wine 
  • Premixed beverage container 
  • 2 liter bottles
  • Most standard screw cap wine bottles.

Other important info:

Change the temperature setting to fit the beverage of your choice from a 34 degree beer to a 55 degree glass of red wine and anything in between. ProTap is easy to use, easy to clean, and easy to switch from one beverage to another!  Pro-Tap can also be used for 2 liter soda, iced tea, or lemonade. Root beer floats, anyone?  Just think of the ways YOU could use a ProTap! Every ProTap unit comes with the regulator that fits standard 12 and 20 OZ CO2 canisters and includes 4 each 16 Gram CO2 canisters to use day 1. Plugs into any standard 120 Volt receptacle.

 We are so excited about ProTap! We need your support to bring ProTap to market and you can help make that happen!

Risks and challenges

ProTap is a great idea; it's simple, easy to use, and works with most standard bottles on the market so what could go wrong, right?

First of all, we have been working on this project with a manufacturer for more than a year already. They already make small refrigeration units so that part is easier. Since ProTap is fairly unique, there may be some delays in the manufacturing / testing process. The factory has already built us a prototype which we immediately modified as soon as we got. We want the ProTap to be just right, you know?

We have been importing products from Asia for more than 15 years in many different product categories so this should be the easiest part for us but who knows when a tsunami is going to disrupt the port your ship is headed to.

The ProTap will include 6 adapters for most bottles used in the beverage industry. Some bottles won't work because the bottle is in the shape of a head or something weird or unique like that. We focused on beer and large wine bottles as that is where we think most home users will use the ProTap. New adapters will be available in the future - we're already working on two more so if we don't have the right adapter for you yet, let us know and we'll work on that too!

    Let's Start Early!

    So you are thinking that since I'm getting a ProTap, now is maybe the time to start making my own beer or wine. Great idea! This reward level gets the ProTap, the filling funnel, and a kit to make either one gallon of beer/wine - your choice! Now the wine kit doesn't include the juice you will need, but the beer kit only requires water! This way you can have a couple of batches of your own making before you get the Pro Tap. The beer/wine kit will ship in the summer 2017 and your ProTap will be here later in the year. Includes 4 each 16 gram CO2 canisters to use day 1!
