Make a 6 pump festival bar c/w chiller



I run/organise a on day beer and cider festival every year and would like to extend this to a two day Lager, beer and cider festival. My problem is, the pumping system, I can build a bar no problem at all but where do I start with pumps, chillers, connectors, tubes etc? the system is to run a maximum of 6 lagers on separate taps, I don’t mind if the taps are singular or doubles or even triples. Where do I start? where do I buy the kit from?

Any help will be gratefully received.




  1. Hi Nathan. If you are running something like this you need back up. Your best option would be to look for a local dispense engineer most of them will hire out equipment. You could look here
    Failing that ask your local wholesaler or someone who supplies the beer in your area. This way you know you have equipment that works don’t fall into the trap,’ I know pub that has a cooler that you could use’, because 9 times out of ten it will be a health hazard and will probably ruin your big day.

    • I definitely want to buy or make one, I have no interest in borrowing one for the very reason you mention. I’ll have a look at the link you sent me. Thank you.

  2. Hi Nathan,

    I would personally buy/rent a 6 product cooler with a 3 stage pump and just get a 6 product python with water recirculation, should do the job just fine. A1 bar sales and Brandles online will sort you out.

  3. I can send you some pictures of my home bar if you want. It’s not complex really but it helps if someone goes through it so you understand what is happening. Particularly with line cleaning.
