Top 5 Best Beer Towers Reviewed

There is something to be said about draft beer. Every pour seems to be a unique experience, but, whatever it is everyone seems to agree that beer is better on tap. This is one of the many reasons why beer connoisseurs have developed at home tap solutions.

One of these solutions is a beer tower, sometimes called a beer tube. Beer towers are tall tubular beer dispensers with a faucet that allows you to pour your own beer. These dispensers are practical for parties and are convenient additions to a keg or kegerator.

These beer tubes have a few different parts. Beer is held in a plastic tube or jug and at the base is a spigot. The spigots are more of a faucet as they are meant to imitate an actual tap faucet. Some beer tower dispensers also have LED lights and some may also have ice chambers.

Whichever beer dispenser you may be interested in, they do a great job of providing convenience and can enhance a guest’s experience. If you are interested in buying a tower, take a look at some of the most popular models below. You may find that some towers may be a better fit for you than others.

Standard vs. Ice Chamber Beer Dispenser

Ice chambers are an awesome addition to a beer tower dispenser. Nobody likes to drink a warm beer and they do a pretty good job keeping things cold for a while. However, I’m not totally convinced they are always the best option.

Draft towers without an ice chamber are usually cheaper and can be less of a hassle. Ice chambers can take a lot of ice to fill and large cubes may not fit well in some models. And in my experience, people tend to empty towers before they get too warm anyway.


My Vote for Best Beer Tower

I recommend the Wyndham House 3.5 Liter Beverage Dispenser. It is a solid beer tube that will always provide. There are no electronic parts that may fail, no ice chambers to fill and clean, and it will still serve your guests well.

It is also very easy to fill from a keg or kegerator. This has been very convenient when my kegerator is in a different room or we are outside.
