  • Newest faucet design on the market!
  • Reduced first pour foam due to low thermal mass
  • Forward-sealing design prevents beer residue from gumming up the faucet
  • Unique shuttle design greatly improves laminar flow, improving the pour of carbonated beverages
  • Compatible with all Intertap faucet accessories and shanks

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.

Is this compatible with a TapCooler counterpressure bottle filler?
Dirk L Pletcher on Apr 6, 2022
BEST ANSWER: Yes with the appropriate accessories. I have the counter pressure can filler and the Intertap connection tube which threads right onto the Nukatap faucet. Additionally I have the gas ball lock accessory for the Tapcooler to complete the counter pressure setup. It is probably some of the best Homebrew items I’ve ever purchased.
I have Ultratap faucets currently; will the Ultratap accessories work with the Nukatap faucets?

I love this tap, flow is great and it never sticks! Only issue is the red cup seal keeps cracking. They only sell the seal kit($5.00) online but if you call customer support, they sell them individually($1.99). I bought a handfull of them. Otherwise it would get 5 stars

Red seats are brittle and crack!
I choose to receive three of these taps for my new Komos Kegerator, and the first time I disassembled for cleaning I noticed cracks in the red seat that goes above and below the steel ball. I continued using those that had only one crack, and thought maybe they had been overtightened, but ordered the 5.95 gasket kit and was very careful not to overtightened, and the next keg replacement and disassembled nuka tap with new seats were cracked again. This time they fell into three pieces so used a rubber o ring hoping it will work and not leak. They need to sell these red seats by the dozen, because the kit has plenty of other o rings and gaskets but only one each of the top and bottom seat and they are very brittle and crack during use every time in my experience over the past year.

Enjoy having a real faucet!
Recently made the transition from picnic tap to a real faucet on my Keezer. I researched several faucets and kept coming back to Nukatap; I liked the fit and finish, availability of spare parts, spout options, and the price. I thought seriously about flow control but decided to keep things simple. I went with 5.5 feet of 4mm ID EVA tubing but need to add just a little more (I'm running 11 psi at 36F and end up with about 2 inches of foam).

Great taps for home use and when cleaning your beer lines.
Very happy with the initial install and use! Smooth operation and clean cut off so far. I cleaned my beer lines for the first time with these faucets installed, clearly superior to doing the same thing with front sealing faucets which leaked terribly during flushing process.

Really Enjoying Them!
It has been a few weeks now since I’ve been enjoying the stainless steel Nukataps. I like their versatility with being able to switch out spouts and that they’re forward sealing. Easy to install the four taps and springs on my two kegerators.
Easy install.
Sleek and shiny.
Forward-sealing and fantastic!

They are Great, Self closing, Great Design, Great Looking and Great Price
What else can I say. Have had Perlick taps for about 8 years, Stainless. But they leaked, Or the would open with a tap handle. I got real tired of beer on the floor. I found the Nakataps, read the review, Talked to the advisor for More Beer and placed my order.
They came, and after a cleaning, installed the first tap to give it a try. WOW, I use a hand made tap handle, this tap slams shut with authority, not ONE drip. I was sold, heck there is a money back return.
I cleaned up and polished my Perlick taps, Put them in the bubble wrap bags, Took them to my brew club meeting and sold them for what i paid for the Kukatap's They were pleased with the great deal. I got the best deal though.
Buy these taps,
