A great and fun way to pour your guests a beer is from a dispenser which can sit on any table-top or of course your home bar top. They are an easy way of pouring beer, and your guests can even help themselves, giving you more time to enjoy their company.
There are many shapes and sizes and designs of home bar beer dispensers, so you can go for traditional, retro or just plain fun.
The Beer Tower
A beer dispenser, which is also known as a beer tower was originally a way of serving a whole table of customers in one go. The tower would be placed on the table and the group would fill and refill their glasses as and when they wanted to, without the need to keep going to the bar.
It is a great idea and one that fits in well with a home bar, and with the many designs out there, will look great too. Although I have made this about beer, it is not just about beer, you can add any drink you like in one of these drink’s dispensers.
Whether you are having a party, watching sports with some friends, having a family barbecue or just hanging out, a drink’s dispenser will have your back. You can move the dispenser to where the action is, from bar top, to table-top, from kitchen to garden, saving many trips back and forth with single glasses of drink.
A beer dispenser is not just for regular beer, if you are a keen home brewer, then what better way to serve your beer than with a beer dispenser.

I think my favorite is the double beer towers each holding 3L which would probably be enough most of the time, but when you need more capacity you have another one as back up. They also look pretty good too, and have an LED light in them if you want to brighten things up.
