The name Perlick has been in the beverage industry for a long time, and has always been associated with high quality draft equipment. The 650SS is no exception. Forward-sealing so there is less chance of bacterial and yeast activity, a high-quality forward sealing faucet such as this will need to be cleaned less frequently than an inferior back-sealing standard faucet. Being all-stainless, this Perlick faucet is built to last! IN addition to these qualities, this Perlick faucet has a flow control valve for controlling the flow of your beer! Pour the perfect pint every time by adjusting based on carbonation levels, or lower the flow rate to get a perfect growler fill! Staying strong long after other metals begin to degrade, a stainless steel Perlick faucet is a long-term investment.
