Cold Plate System FAQs

What is a cold plate system, and why would I need it?


A cold plate system is a cooler that contains a stainless steel plate with a very small stainless steel line running throughout. The beer travels through this line and cools very rapidly.  You must still surround your keg with ice to keep it cool.  The colder the keg the better the beer will pour.  The stainless steel plate must also be covered with ice.

A cold plate system allows you to draw beer from a faucet, similar to those at a bar.  Cold plate systems are typically used at larger gatherings like a New Year’s Party or Wedding.

There is a $300 deposit on the cold plate, a $200 deposit on the CO2 tank, and a $10 3 day rental fee.  Single faucet and dual faucet cold plate systems are available.
