Fruit fly or cupboard moth, maybe. I've had trouble over the years with them. Once I started cleaning the taps with sanitizer after every use, end of trouble. Get a baby bottle nipple brush and keep it in a glass of sanitizer nearby.

I really doubt they are IN the keg. Its like everyone is telling you, they are in the tap. De pressurize, disconnect and disassemble your taps. Clean, sanitize and reconnect. Then cover the spouts

Edit. i poured an earwig once. it was in the spout too. i covered after that.

+1. You can drive yourself nuts trying to figure out where they're coming from. Tear it apart and clean profusely. Then in the future, cover that spout!
