Our products are marketed under the commercial names Metrodispenser, Triton Dispenser and Tritondispenser. In 2017 our Metrodispenser Original range was renamed Triton Original.

A little history:

We invented and patented the first commercial tabletop beer dispenser in 1995. We called it Metrodispenser. This came from the old idea of measuring beer by length, like the Yard of Ale or, in Spanish, the Metre of Beer. Our dispensers also became known variously around the world by other names: beer tube, beer tower, beer giraffe, beer tapper or beer bazooka, to name a few. In 2009 we patented our totally redesigned Triton dispenser, with improved usability and hygiene features.

Our dispensers are optimised to serve beer, but they can be used for many other beverages, cold or hot: Cider, wine, cocktails, juices, etc. Triton dispensers are not appropriate for drinks which contain solids (for example fruit pulp) which can clog-up the valves.


Nobody wants to serve from a pitcher, but everyone wants to pour their own beer from a Triton dispenser. Our dispensers are fun and easy to use. They also capture the customer’s attention, they increase drink turnover and they free-up bar staff for other tasks. Branded Triton dispensers are also an excellent advertising medium for the beer brand and for the drinking venue.


We offer four product families, all of excellent quality: Triton Promo, Triton Classic, Triton Sky and Triton Original (previously Metrodispenser Original). If you want the best in technology, ease of use and guaranteed hygiene, we recommend Triton Promo or Triton Classic. If, additionally, you are looking for maximum visual impact, Triton Sky. And if you prefer tradition, Triton Original.

Triton Promo, Triton Classic and Triton Sky dispensers use our Patented Triton System, in other words ease of use and guaranteed higiene. The Patented Triton System was registered in July 2009 in response to feedback from international breweries who sought the highest possible standards in tabletop dispensers, especially relating to ease of use and hygiene. This System allows the user to separate the vessel which contains the beer from the main dispensing mechanisms and from the supporting tripod. The accessibility of these components – together with the fact that they can be taken apart – simplifies washing and avoids bacterial proliferation, which occurs in trapped beer of hard-to-reach corners of traditional beer taps. The Patented Triton System also makes the dispenser much easier to fill and to handle.
