That is true... and that is why I always got rid of pitchers at the bars I was managing. Or having most of the taps all be micro, rather than an ample selection of domestic beers.

That's pretty high class compared to some of the dives I've been in.

Space, expense, maintenance hassles and costs.

I don't understand the complaint. Some successful business models in the food and beverage industry do not necessitate a draft system.

If you want to drink draft beer, patronize a business that serves it.

I was surprised to see so many posters with strong feelings for draft. I prefer the consistency of bottled beer, draft can often be flat, off taste and gets warm more quickly

Then you are going to places that don't take care of their draft system and beer gets warm at the same rate.....I am not even going to touch the idea of 'consistency'....no matter how you meant it. .Nothing wrong with bottles....but geez...keep your objections to draft fact based.

Some beer is better in bottles, some in draft. It's really variable.

In general I prefer draft, if its a place with a good business and the turnover is high, and they clean their taps.

All beer is better from draft because there is less oxidation. The only exception would be an aged or bottle conditioned sour or stout.

I think one thing aside from cost that is also important to note is that most bar backs or bartenders don't have the proper (Ciccerone) training to maintain a draft system.

In most states it is a law that the draft lines have to be flushed every two weeks. I know some local places that haven't done it in years.

And yes, I agree, if there aren't taps then it's not really a bar.

Interesting perspectives. I have been enjoying big-hop IPA's lately and also enjoy Belgians, Scotts and imperial stouts so I don't think I would notice the lack of taps if bottles/canned options are desirable.
