Our Guide to Polypins | Written Guide | Great Newsome Brewery

Putting on a party? Burning to have a BBQ? Sounds like you might need some beer…

Our no.1 suggestion would be a polypin. This is simply a bag in a box, filled with our award-winning craft beer. A cool polypin will last up to 3 weeks once opened.

We supply both 10-litre (17.5-pint) and 20-litre (35-pint) polypins, filled to the brim with our award-winning craft beer.

If you’re interested in polypins, take a look at our short guide below to help you get up and running!

Step 1: Positioning the Polypin

Place the box on a stable surface. Make sure the cutout is near the surface’s edge.

Step 2: Access the tap

There’s a little cardboard cutout on the box face; chuck away the smaller bit on the bottom. Then, fold the cardboard flap outwards. You’ll then be able to drag out the tap from the inside of the polypin and nestle it in that semi-circle hole. Next, fold the cardboard back on top of the tap to lock it in place.

Finally, you’ll want to remove the small plastic clip from the tap. This plastic stops the tap from opening from inside

of the box; this is great when it’s in transport, but not so much if you’d like a drink! Gently pull it off, and you’ll be ready to do some taste-testing.

Step 3: Pull a pint

Get your glass ready! Pull the black fins up on the tap’s side with your index and middle fingers.

The polypin should last for about 3 weeks once opened and kept cool. When you’re getting to the very end of your polypin, make sure to tip it ever so slightly to get the last few pints out.

Bonus Step: Attach a Pump

Attention all ale aficionados! Did you know that you can attach a handpump to a polypin?

To do this, you’ll need a polypin connector. This can be easily attached to a handpump’s pipe using a jubilee clip.

Place the polypin’s tap into the connector (as shown in the image). Push the connector over the top of the polypin tap, then twist the knob on top clockwise. You’ll now be able to pump your fresh beer into your favourite glass!

By the way: if you’re in need of a bar and/or a handpump, we’ve got you covered!
