Take control of your perfect pour. Let us introduce: The Active Pour Tap, delivering our best tapping experience to date. New with Pinter 3 and compatible with Pinter 2.
YOUR PERFECT BEER SERVE
The Active Pour Tap can adapt to any variable pressure inside the Pinter. From high pressure, all the way down to zero. You control your perfect beer serve, from the first pour to the last few drops.
Simply pull the handle to control the flow of beer and choose how carbonated you’d like your beer to be. If you want a big head on your beer, open the tap more to release more CO2. There you have it - your perfect beer.
The beauty of the Pinter’s design is that it captures the natural CO2 from fermentation to carbonate the beer. This CO2 builds pressure in the vessel to help push the beer out. It’s a balancing act between volume, carbonation and fermentation.
A freshly brewed Pinter is full of CO2 and high pressure. But as the Pinter gets depleted, the pressure drops in the vessel. It sometimes drops to zero depending on how quickly you consume your beer. This is where the Active Pour Tap comes in.
The path of the beer from Pinter to glass is a controlled journey, meaning bright, lively carbonation and mouthfeel.
The engineering is quite complex, but the user interface is simple. The design centres around a precise cone-shaped flow control valve. The valve is controlled by pulling the tap handle, controlling the flow of the beer precisely. This gives you full control over how active you’d like your beer to be.
A huge amount of energy and attention went into developing the Active Pour Tap. Our in-house Product Development team and Senior Design Engineer Dr Greg Quinn put well over 1,000 hours into development. From ideation to precise engineering models, and many prototypes, they got closer to the perfect design. We now proudly present the latest tapping innovation, the Active Pour Tap.
Precision is crucial. Strict tolerances on our materials mean a high level of consistency in manufacturing. It changes the way you’re going to experience Pinter. On that note, what materials have we used?
MATERIALS ARE KEY
The Active Pour tap has a food-grade ABS (Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) body and a powder-coated aluminium handle, which is smooth to the touch. The mechanism inside is made of Nickel-coated Zamak 5, with glass fibre-reinforced PBT components. Stainless steel springs and FDA-approved rubber seals ensure nothing gets contaminated or stuck. The haptic texture on the collar makes it easy to insert and remove the tap.

Can I use the Active Pour Tap with Pinter 2?
The Active Pour Tap is compatible with Pinter 2 and available to order separately because we believe this new innovation will transform your experience with Fresh Beer.
Is the Active Pour Tap compatible with Pinter 1?
No, the new tap design is not compatible with Pinter 1. It is new with Pinter 3 and backwards compatible with Pinter 2 and is a standard component of Pinter 3.
Can I use my Pinter 2 Tap Handles?
No, the Active Pour Tap is a completely new design. Pinter 2 tap handles are not compatible. A new handle will come as standard with the Active Pour Tap.
What is a food-grade ABS body?
ABS stands for Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene and is a food-grade plastic used in food and drink processing tools such as food processors. It retains its strength against strain and abrasion as well as low temperatures.
What is a glass fibre-reinforced PBT?
PBT stands for Polybutylene terephthalate, it is a material with high rigidity and mechanical strength. It’s able to meet our precise manufacturing tolerances.
What does haptic texture mean?
This design feature refers to the ridged texture on elements such as the Carbonation Dial and Tap collar. This helps you grip the components more easily.
