Default Just found three flies in my out door kegerator spout tap, do they make spout caps?

I just poured a beer and there was three little fruit like flies in the spout tap that poured out into my beer. My kegerator is outside, so...do they make little caps I can put over the spout to prevent this?

Fruit flies are attracted to anything that is fermenting and often formerly fermented things (like beer).

They are digging the residual sugars in the beer leftover as residue.

The solutions above will work.

You can also keep a small spray bottle of diluted Star San and spray it up in the nozzle and let it drip out. This will flush out most of it.
