Considering this, what does on tap mean at a bar?
"On tap" means that the beer is drawn from a large container, such as a keg, and poured directly into the glass. The opposite of "on tap" would be beer in a bottle. "Draft beer" is beer that is on tap.
Furthermore, what are tap handles called? A beer tap is a valve, specifically a tap, for controlling the release of beer. While other kinds of tap may be called faucet, valve or spigot, the use of tap for beer is almost universal. This may be because the word was originally coined for the wooden valve in traditional barrels.
Likewise, people ask, are all keg taps the same size?
Not all brands of draft beer use the same type of valve in the keg. Each distinct "system" requires matching the appropriate keg coupler to the keg valve. In the U.S., there are eight different "systems" in use: "D" System (American Sankey): Most North American beers.
