Draft systems help ensure the integrity of beer & wine in two ways. First, kegs are made of stainless steel & are far more resistant to temperature fluctuations during transport.
Reusable stainless steel kegs reduce the waste generated by commercial packaging, saving trash from landfills and reducing The Homestead's overall carbon footprint.
Traditional wine service is a fairly time-consuming ritual. With our wine on tap system, there are no corks to fuss with so it can be quickly poured and served to your guests, helping to increase our efficiency and keeps service running smoothly- win for all!
Perfect for Sampling
Who doesn't love options?! Most people crave experiences and are constantly on the hunt for something new and exciting. Wine & beer on tap allows for nontraditional sized pours to easily and quickly provide your guests with a sample if they desire!
