A beer engine or hand pump is used to serve cask conditioned ale (sometimes referred to as real ale) without a CO2 cylinder forcing the beer through the lines. Beer engines use the basic principle that liquids do not compress when placed under pressure; therefore, if you apply pressure to the liquid it will move rather than compress. Beer engines enjoy wide-spread use in the UK.
