A portable keg system can be tapped with CO2. Pressure is received by the keg in a single unit pump and tap combination, which is called party pump. IN this type, the keg and the beer keg tap are separated. To release the pressure in the ked, the pump is attached and the faucet is opened. Air pressure is applied to the keg by pumping and when the lever is pushed, which is the tap handle, beer is released.
When beer is mixed with air, it begins to lose its flavor and this is the reason why a pony keg or a portable keg should be consumed in a single day when the beer already loses its flavor.
