Title: British Beer Pumps
Post by: burge711 on July 25, 2014, 08:50:52 PM
Has anyone ever converted a old fashioned beer pump to a pressurized style tap?  I am building a British Pub in my basement. I have gotten a beer pump out of a British pub in England that I want to convert it to tap beer.  Thanks for your interest Greg

You could get casks of ale from your local microbrewery. Then you can use that antique for its original design purpose of dispensing casks of ale, and simply get another modern dispensing setup for kegs.  Flying Monkeys Brewery (Barrie, Canada) gave me a tour and showed me about casks, which are different than kegs; that they have for sale for pubs and other customers who are into the old school beer stuff.
