  • 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 Stealth Bomber 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.

  • Made from stainless steel
  • Shuttle made from TPV

Kegland Part Number: KL17978

Please note: this is a painted faucet and as such needs to be used, cleaned, and handled with care. Clean the faucet gently by hand and avoid tossing it into a bucket with other draft parts. Excessive soaking in caustic cleaners will damage the finish. For these reasons, we do not recommend the Stealth Bomber faucets for professional settings.

I have two of these already and they're hands down the best pouring faucet on the market.

For the design, color, and attachments. I will be able to easily transfer to smaller kegs without needing to open my fridge, clean the lines super easy, and get awesome pours!

Will there be a matching black shank? Would love these for my fridge but I think the chrome ring will ruin the look.
Jason Krichten on Sep 20, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes there will be a matching black coupling nut released in 2021. Unfortunately we do not have a more specific ETA at this time.
Will Morebeer have the flow control model?
Robert Jolin on Aug 9, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We plan to offer a flow control model of this new tap as soon as we can. At this time we anticipate that we will have them around October or November of this year.
Have the fixed the matte chipping?

Black paint in beer

Don't buy unless you like drinking paint
As other have said, the paint chips easily and will likely end up in your beer. At this point, I'm going to try to figure out a way to chemically remove the paint and get to the bare stainless. I may have gotten paint chips in beers sent to a competition. Product should be discontinued.

Love Them So Far
I just got these faucets and so far they're awesome. The only problem is, I bought the self closing spring with them and on one of the faucets I have to tighten it so much to keep it from leaking that it won't spring closed. Any suggestions?

Poor quality plating
Seems like the plating of these taps went to the absolute lowest bidder of a supplier. I have had 3 of these for less that 6 months and the black plating is flaking off like crazy. The end of the nozzles are almost completely bare at this point, with several other small spots chipping. The only thing I have done besides pour beer through then is clean them with PBW and a soft sponge.

awesome appearance but beware
Love the look of this faucet it’s awesome. BUT……do not buy these. I never write reviews but had to here so people don’t waste money. The paint WILL come off and you won’t realize it. I found this out the hard way after gently cleaning my faucet and then canning 24 beers to find paint chips floating in almost every can. It’s a shame because they’re cool but please do yourself a favor and stay with stainless.

paint chips easily
As other reviewers have noted, it chips and scratches easily - including from the INSIDE of the faucet! Really disappointed in the quality.

Bad finish
Great system but the "paint" finish is weak. After some use the black paint is comming off from the outside and inside, when I pour some beer black flakes are floating around. I would suggest to buy normal ones

Would look great if it didn’t come with multiple chips, revealing the shiny silver. Tried to cover it up with black sharpie, but it is still noticeable

What's not to love!
I switched to Intertap faucets when they first came out and I loved them. Bought my first Nukatap a few months ago and i was impressed even more. Saw the Black Stealth Nukatap and just had to have one. Waaay cool looking! The Nukatap design is an improvement to the already awesome Intertap.
