The device that allows you to release the beer into your drinking cup from the keg is a keg tap. Keg taps are really easy to use but care must be given in handling it so that you don’t waste the beer, which can happen if you do not know how to use it correctly. You can splash foam all over you or all over your face. Getting beer from a keg tap looks easy but it is not as easy as it looks.
The keg tap regulates the release of beer. You can release beer from the keg tap with the use of a lever and through pulling and pressing it. When pressure is released, it pushes the beer up and into the glass. The keg tap is technically a switch and may be an on-off or a close-open switch.
