Homebrew and Commercial Kegerators do the same thing.  They chill beer and allow you to serve it.  Each has lines for gas (typically CO2) and beer.  The only difficult thing about switching back and forth are the fittings and taps.

Commercial kegs use commercial keg couplers or taps.  These taps vary based on the brewery.  A typical style for US kegs is Sanke type D.  Commercial taps typically handle liquid and gas in single unit while homebrew couplers separate these out into gas and liquid quick disconnects.

Taprite Sanke Keg Beer Tap - D-Style Keg Coupler (With PRV) D1505

Taprite Sanke Keg Beer Tap – D-Style Keg Coupler (With PRV) from MoreBeer

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

The D-Style sanke keg beer tap is the most commonly-used keg coupler in the U.S. If you’re going to serve commercial draft beer that was made in the US and is dispensed from your standard American sankey keg, this is the keg coupler you’ll need.

Made in America by Taprite, this keg coupler features a lock-down mechanism that produces a satisfying “click” when engaged. Its heavy-duty construction is designed to withstand frequent commercial use, so you know it’ll last for years at home. It features a built-in pressure relief valve for safety.

To dispense beer, gas is pushed into the keg through the tap’s side port and the beer exits through the top port.

The tail piece, hex nut or gasket for dispensing beer out of the top port must be purchased separately. We offer a pre-made kit with a 1/4” tailpiece (D1720B), as well as a range of other tailpiece sizes to match whatever diameter beer line you’re using.
