Cold Plate vs. Coil Jockey Box: Picking the Perfect Portable Keg Chiller for Your Needs []

If you need to be serving ice-cold draft beer anywhere, anytime? A jockey box is your portable solution, but with two main chilling options: cold plates and coils. Choosing the right one depends on your brewing habits. This guide will help you pick the perfect jockey box for your next adventure!

Cold Plate Jockey Box: Simple Chilling for Low-Volume Events

  • Pros:

    • Easier to clean and maintain
    • Lighter weight
    • Less expensive
    • Great for maintaining already cold kegs (below 55°F)
  • Cons:

    • Slower chilling, especially for warm kegs
    • Not ideal for high-volume serving

Coil Jockey Box: Powerful Chilling for Serious Beer Flow

  • Pros:

    • Faster chilling, even for warm kegs
    • Handles high-volume dispensing with ease
    • Consistent cold beer throughout the event
  • Cons:

    • Requires more cleaning due to longer coils
    • Heavier weight
    • Slightly higher price tag

Choosing Your Champion: Consider These Factors

  • Serving Frequency: Coil for high volume, cold plate for casual get-togethers.
  • Keg Temperature: Coil chills faster for warm kegs.
  • Portability: Cold plate might be easier to carry for short distances.
  • Budget: Cold plate is a more affordable option.

No matter which jockey box you choose, has everything you need to get your portable draft system up and running!
