Default Help Identifying Faucet Type

I have the opportunity to pick this up if I want it, but I couldn't tell what type of faucets were installed. This is the largest picture of the tower the guy could send me, and outside of it being used one night for a bar promotion, he doesn't have any other details.

Thoughts on the faucets? Sorry about the size, but since the focus is on the faucets (and they're small in the picture) I figured nobody would mind a large picture just this once.

I'm thinking my best bet is to just asses the situation in person and if I don't like it tell the guy no thanks, but if anybody has ever dealt with a tower like this, or has any input on the faucets it would be much appreciated.

Type;

Keg Beer Faucet - Stout and Ale, Gold Plated

Brand? At the least it may be embossed on the casting somewhere but, if not I am betting that Carlesberg sales could figure it out.

You need to send it to me. You should not use this but in Colorado we can make it work.

I have no idea but I bet it can be made to work great.

Crazy. I didn't even consider a stout faucet...I mean it's Carlsberg, why would they be pouring through a stout faucet? I just thought it might be some Euro company I'd never heard of before.

Exciting news.

If they were serving Carlsberg, then they probably took the restrictor plate out of the faucets. A local bar here serves all of their beers through stout faucets, but only the one serving Guiness has the restrictor plate in it.

Jump all over it.

That's a nice tower.

That's what I figure. I'll pick this guy up this weekend and post some better pics once it's in hand.


Looks like it's time to get a restrictor plate (~$3) and some beergas to start some nitro pours.

Alright, game on. It's set for this weekend to pick up, but there is a twist.

Turns out, the seller has two of these. Sending emails back and forth, I didn't know the guy had two. He was charging $100 for one, and he says he'll sell me two of them for $150 total. What can I say, I can't resist. I don't have an immediate need for the second, but maybe I'll throw down for a Sanyo 4912 and have 6 taps in the apartment, wouldn't that be something...

If you decide to sell one of them I will definitely pick it up.
