Description

With the MoreBeer! Jockey Box your beer will pour cold for hours! Take it camping, tailgating, or just pull it out when the gang is over. A Jockey box (or draft box) is a portable dispensing system used to cool beer as it travels inline from the keg to the faucet. The MoreBeer! Jockey Box includes an insulated cooler, two 50' x 3/8" stainless steel coils, shanks and beer line clamps.

Our jockey box does not include faucets or tap handles as standard, allowing you to pair it with the faucet model of your choice. Select your desired faucets from our add-on system above.

A favorite innovation in our draft box design is that we use larger 3/8" OD stainless steel tubing, which has two advantages over designs offered by other companies:

  1. It cools a greater volume of beer, and cools it faster. The coil will hold approximately 33 oz of beer at a time.
  2. The larger diameter line offers less resistance, which lets you push the beer with less CO2 pressure. Our boxes require about 10-15 psi from the CO2 tank to push the beer from the keg to the faucet (same pressure you use to dispense at home). Because the vast majority of beer lovers opt to keep their beer cool at all times to protect flavor (especially a homebrewer who is going to retap the same kegs at home!) and reduce foaming issues, most people opt to also ice the keg. The low applied pressure of 10-15 psi means that if you leave the system hooked up overnight, the beer will not over carbonate. If you do not plan on keeping the keg cold, which is perfectly fine, our system still works great because you can disconnect the line (if left for days) to keep the beer from losing carbonation.

We do not use shanks on the back side of our boxes. We drill holes slightly smaller than the line size so that a tight seal is created but you can still pull the line in when not in use, without having a wrench on hand. This makes storage and transport extremely easy. You will appreciate not having lines flopping everywhere. 

You will need to purchase the appropriate keg coupers for your commercial kegs or quick disconnects for your homebrew kegs. You will also need a CO2 system, comprised of a CO2 tank and regulator.

Tips For Best Results:
It is much more likely for a beer left at a high psi to overcarbonate (become foamy) than a beer left at a low psi to lose carbonation. The reason is that gas will always keep coming from the regulator until the gas/beer pressure have reached an equilibrium, so over time the high psi setting becomes the pressure in the beer. However, for a beer to lose carbonation it has to come out of solution into the headspace in the keg. Because the headspace is limited, only so much CO2 can come out, and the keg pressure will not drop all the way down to the lower regulator pressure on its own. This is the reason that if you have overcarbonated a beer you have to repeatedly vent the keg, reducing the pressure in the headspace to 0, and allowing more gas to escape from the beer.

For the best performance when using a draft box, tests have shown that ice water is actually the most effective at cooling the coils. So, as the ice melts, do not open the drain valve on the cooler. Draft boxes with Cooling Plates (stainless coil embedded in aluminum) are designed to work with the valve open, ours is not.

This appears to be the best value on the internet.

It shipped and arrived quickly. Well packed with instructions.

I flushed it with cleaning solution and didn't find any leaks. The lines are all beverage grade and the coils are SS.

I was able to pour ice cold Bud Light and Summer Shandy for a 9 hour party without a leak or hiccup in 85F shade. The kegs were iced in tubs to make it easier.

I wish there was an option for a SS beer thread connected to the end of tube. I ordered an adapter and a SS clamp which worked fine. Minor detail at this price point.

Great box. I look forward to putting it to work and loaning it to friends!

Good value
Bought this for use in festivals, works great. However make sure you tighten down all the connections, etc before use. I found all the small leaks the hard way when I got it up and running just before the first festival I used it at.

Well built
Not too heavy to lug around, but sturdy enough that I suspect it will last a very long time with regular cleaning/maintenance.

Great value
I have been using it for almost a year now with no problems after initial setup. Out of the box, make sure all connections are tightened down and test your system for leaks with kegged water first to avoid losing any precious beer!

Works great, could be better though
I purchased this a few months back to make lugging my kegs of beer around a little easier to serve.

The unit came fully assembled. I ran cleaner and sanitizer through before first use. This helped me find out that not all of the clamps were tightened during assembly.

I used this two times and noticed during setup the third time that the clamps were rusting! Seriously? Invest in some better clamps.

Another con would be the use of clear tubing from the keg connections to the cooler.

Other than those two cons, the unit is pretty nice. Makes serving beer easy. Takes a little practice to get the pours right as well.

Works Great and priced well
This jockey box works great! I also am impressed with the price. It doesn't make sense to build your own with an offering like this.

Draft Box
This box has proved to be a rock. Adding 20 pounds of ice the beer poured cold for almost 8 hours (I ran out)and is easy to clean. I've told others in the club to check out the Jockey Box at MoreBeer. Great product.

6 years running so far!
I have used this thing to push as much as 60 gallons over a weekend and other than cleaning the lines properly and replacing a hose clamp this thing has been a work horse!
