Beer Tapping Apparatus.

Beer Tapping Apparatus.

Date: February 2, 1897
Creator: Haenig, Emil
Description: Patent for a new and improved beer tap. This design calls for the air pipe to go within the beer tapping pipe and for a pump to supply the air pipe with air. This eliminates the need of a rubber nipple to connect the air pipe, easily cleans the pipe coil, and allows for the tapping of the keg from without the icebox.
