Our Club the “Carolina BrewMasters” hold this beer festival each year – Charlotte Oktoberfest. For 2007 over 6K beer lovers attended. I built a 11 tap festival homebrew dispensing system with the help from 2 other members.

Some features:
-8 ale taps (SS Ventamatics)
-2 Stout faucets (SS)
-1 extra large Randal we call the “Hopinator” – special design features eliminate foaming. Flowed 4 ipa kegs w/o foaming in the same day.
-2 Solid Oak Irish Coffin box Towers atop 2 SS 6” cylinders (originally used to flow beer at a one time major but now closed brewery in Pa.)
-All contruction Red and White oak and oak plywood stained Merlot and poly’d. Inside now stained as well.
-An Oak 3 hole rolling gas cart for 2 CO2 tanks and a Nitro tank.
-2 redundant gas manifiolds with shut offs and back flow restrictors.
-2 Very large food grade poly tubs that can hold 6 ball lock or 5 pin lock cornies each.
-Each tub sits on a cart with large pneumatic wheels for ease of pulling in and out for keg removal and insertion.
-It folds up to fit in a pickup truck.

Worked like a champ. We served 35 kegs of HB over the course of a few hours w/o a hitch.
Soon to be featured in a National Beer magazine.

Looks great ratchet—Charlotte is a quick trip, and I do love a good beer. I’ll have to plan a trip to the next event and check this out!
