A machine that draws up beer from a barrel in a cellar.
- ‘It has two beer engines that serve out beer the old-fashioned way.’
- ‘I don't want to use a beer engine as i feel these aid the loss of aroma.’
- ‘Cask-conditioned ales drawn from our authentic British beer engines are available during certain times of the year.’
- ‘The ales are served by traditional beer engines that have been imported from England.’
- ‘Also, the beer is served with muscle-pressure; the bartender has to pump the beer engine to serve the beer.’
- ‘If you use beer engines, decide which beers benefit from the use of sparkler attachments in order to produce a tight, creamy head.’
- ‘Very few pubs in London offer a wide range of ale on pump and this one has 12 active beer engines.’

- ‘They have twenty draft lines, and 2 hand-pulled beer engines.’
- ‘Our cask conditioned ales are pulled directly from the cask cellar through five traditional British beer engines.’
- ‘As an added bonus, we dispense it through a traditional beer engine to enliven its dry-hopped aroma characteristics.’
- ‘Quite suddenly and dramatically, the old beer engines for Cask Conditioned Beer became an essential piece of equipment in all our pubs.’
- ‘The Corner Cupboard serves a selection of real ales in our bars, served from traditional beer engines.’
- ‘The beer engine draws the brew out almost like sucking on a straw.’
