There's nothing quite like enjoying a cold beer outdoors on a hot summer day. But what happens when the beer gets warm and ruins the party? Fear not, as there is a solution in the form of a portable, non-electric fridge called a jockey box. Let's explore what a jockey box is and how it can keep your beer cold all summer long.

What is a Jockey Box for a Beer Keg:

A jockey box is a portable beer chiller that is designed to keep beer cold and ready to dispense on the go. It works by running beer through a cooling component, either a coil or plate, that is surrounded by ice. This process keeps the beer at a consistent temperature and allows for easy dispensing through a tap or dispenser. The container can range in size and shape but is typically made of stainless steel for durability.

Types of Mobile Draft Beer Dispensers & Coolers:

There are several types of mobile draft beer dispensers on the market, some that require electricity and some that only require ice. The two types of jockey boxes are coil jockey boxes and cold plate jockey boxes. Coil jockey boxes use a long, coiled tube that is submerged in ice to cool the beer as it passes through. Cold plate jockey boxes use a flat, rectangular plate that is also submerged in ice to cool the beer. Usage tips for each type of jockey box include using a 50' or 70' coil for small to medium amounts of beer and using crushed ice for cold plate jockey boxes.

Getting Your Mobile Beer Chiller Ready for Action:

Setting up a pre-assembled mobile beer chiller is easy. Start by connecting the keg to the box using a beer hose, and then add ice to cover the coil or plate. DIY jockey box kits are also available for those who want to customize their portable beer chiller.

Portable Beer Cooler Cleaning and Maintenance:

Cleaning and maintaining your portable beer cooler is important to ensure it's ready for the next party. Cleaning kits and chemical solutions are available to make the process easy. Regular cleaning will help prevent bacteria buildup and ensure the beer tastes fresh.
