A straight sided pressure container for beer dispense. Kegs have a single entry valve with a central tube for exit of the beer and a surrounding collar for entry of pressurised gas to push the beer out. Application of the correct pressure for dispense is important as higher levels can result in gas being absorbed by the beer and fobbing on dispense. Most keg beer is brewery conditioned and stabilized by filtration and/or pasteurisation.
