First Pour Foam Reduction
Every kegerator owner knows the letdown of pouring your first pint of the day and getting too much foam. Even with perfectly balanced draft lines, first pour foam is sometimes unavoidable simply due to the temperature of the faucet itself. Running beer through the faucet will drop the temperature, and the foaming will subside, but not without a bit of wasted beer from pouring off excess head. The NUKATAP beer faucet drops to beer serving temperature much faster thanks to its lower thermal mass. Simply put, the bulkier the faucet is, the more beer is needed to flow through and chill the tap. The NUKATAP is over 20% lighter than its Intertap predecessor, and even lighter still compared to other brands of faucets.

Improved Laminar Flow
The inspiration for the NUKATAP name comes from its uniquely designed "nuke-shaped" shuttle that resides on the inside of the faucet. The NUKASHUTTLE went through numerous rounds of redesigns and countless hours of testing to find a shape that provides superior laminar flow. This means that liquid passes by the shuttle with very little resistance, allowing highly carbonated beers or hard seltzers to pour like a dream.

Sanitary Design
The NUKASHUTTLE is the world’s first seamless single-piece design. Traditional taps feature an o-ring seated on a stainless steel shuttle, which can cause a couple of issues. After many pours, the stainless shuttle rubbing against the internal body of the faucet will create small fissures that become potential infection sites, and the seated o-ring can be difficult to clean in place, making your draft cleaning and sanitizing process less effective than you realize. The NUKASHUTTLE is an advanced TPV rubber matrix that has been seamlessly formed over a durable PP skeleton. This single-piece design eliminates the pitfalls of older manufacturing methods, making it one of the most sanitary faucets on the market.

Forward Sealing vs. Rear Sealing
From tap rooms to home bars, forward-sealing faucets are the ideal choice for any draft setup. In traditional rear-sealing taps, beer will drain out of the entire faucet when it's in the closed position. This means the internal mechanism is coated in beer, which then dries and becomes a sticky residue. Forward-sealing faucets, on the other hand, keep the tap full of beer so it never has a chance to dry and gunk up the internal parts. This makes the faucet much easier to clean and also reduces the chance of off flavors transferring to your beer while you pour.

I have used Perlicks, but they perform poorly. Leak. Foamy.

A lot of thought and engineering to produce foam free pours. KegLand continues to impress me with their innovation.

These taps are amazing. I never have foam, and with 3/16ths tube it pours perfectly.

Almost returned them
I have a three tap tower on a Beverage Air tapper So I ordered 3 NUKATAP Faucets. After cleaning and installing only 1 to make sure it worked as advertised. I tried the one and it dripped nine times before stopping. My existing Perlick faucets only dripped 2 to 3 times. Nine drips would be unacceptable. I tried it again and it dripped 9 or 10 times again. I was done for the day. Next day I tried again and much to my surprise it only dripped 2 or 3 times. Much better. I tried it again with the same results. I installed the other 2 and so far I think they are working as advertised. They do pour with a much small head. Maybe 1/2 or my old ones. Time will tell, but so far so good.

Fantastic Taps That Don’t Stick
Love these taps. Finally found a tap that doesn’t stick and also has the ability to have spring closure. They are a little more expensive than other types, but it’s worth it to not have them keep sticking. I have already had to replace several of the other types because they were so stuck after a few days of no use that the handles broke off when trying to get them unstuck.

Perfect every time.
I think the tap works great. I can set a glass down in front of it and just blast the beer in at the bottom of the glass, and still perfect pour. I am going to add two more.

Great Faucet
I replaced the old style rear sealing faucet with this, hoping for improved pours. I think first pours are improved, less foam, but I never did a head to head comparison. I do like the cleaner look, and that spouts can be changed. I also bought the growler spout, sometimes ya need beer to go. I also installed the self closing spring, our kegerator is in the garage in a busy area, and sometimes the tap handle gets bumped and we get a mess, and a waste of beer. The spring solves that problem. And the Nukatap makes the kegerator look better.

I really like these with the spring. They don't foam like the old perlicks did. Only does 2 drips after you close tap!

Replaced my Perlick
I just replaced my 5 Perlick taps with these. They look great and no leaks. Also, with the self-sealing spring, has kept my tap with carbonated water (40 psi) closed without doing the Perlick wiggle.
