Two-thirds of all beer drinkers prefer the flavour of draught beer to bottled beer. So it's a great pity that in lots of restaurants and catering businesses so many of them are not able to enjoy the full flavour of their favourite drink. A dispensing system that is oversized, has the wrong settings, inexperienced bar staff and that suffers a lack of hygiene leads to poor dispensing quality and a disappointing drink.

smartDRAFT™: so that beer tastes the way beer should

Restuarants with a draught beer volume less than 50 hectolitres a year are a fast growing segment in the industry worldwide - and the least loved by breweries! Over 70% of all pubs and restaurants belong to this group.

It was especially these small businesses - with a dispensing volume of up to 70 litres a week - that we had in mind when smartDRAFT™ was designed as an economical alternative to oversized dispensing systems and beer in bottles or cans.

Open up new possibilities

smartDRAFT™: top quality guarantees pure enjoyment, whether you use it as an alternative to an existing bar or as an additional dispensing point for special beers or trendy drinks, or even as a mobile bar for external events.

Open up new market opportunities for your business by offering fresh draught beer in premium quality where, up to now, only bottles were available.

smartDRAFT Tap smartDRAFT Keg smartDRAFT Cooler


Consistent dispensing quality at the highest level, made possible by the smartDRAFT™ Tap with the latest compensator technology. The integrated, pre-set pressure reducing valve ensures perfect results every time. Dispensing problems caused by the wrong pressure settings or the compensator just don't arise. Perfect hygiene with no cleaning required. And, each keg is supplied with a one-way beer line on delivery.


The smartDRAFT™ Keg, made of stainless steel with its 10 l contents has an integrated CO2 supply. The two chamber system keeps the beer fresh from the first to the final glass. This eliminates faults and quality impairments caused by the gas supply from cylinders.


The super energy-efficient smartDRAFT™ Cooler ensures the beer is kept at the perfect drinking temperature. The innovative evaporation cooling technique reduces the temperature of the keg contents from 20° C to the pre-set drinking temperature of between 3°C and 8°C in only three hours! Just plug into the mains and there you go. And the elegant design of housing provides a range of advertising possibilities.
