Hi everybody! What do you call the equipment that has many golden and black faucets pouring beer out in the following link?

We don't have faucets in the UK, we have taps, so those are beer-taps.
A lot of us here prefer our beer alive, we call it "Real Ale". Real ale is served with a "Hand Pump".

Bob, as an aside it has always puzzled me why CAMRA went for the word Ale rather than Beer. I assume it is just that CAMRA is pronounceable whereas CAMRB isn't.

I'm puzzled therefore I think.

Maybe the people who set up the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) wanted an acronym that sounded snappy.
