It's not actually the beer itself that necessarily has a high tyramine content. It's the molds and such that can build up in the hoses and taps that cause the higher levels of tyramine. In theory if you had a brand new system and a keg of beer, the "tap" beer would be perfectly safe (as long as the brewery was safe). That's why they recommend bottled/canned beer from reputable sources. I drink all sorts of microbrews, but I won't drink home made bottled beer from friends. It won't make them sick, but it could make me sick.

By they way, in my opinion it's not worth messing with tap beer. I had my worst hypertensive crisis ever from a moment of weakness and only about 1/3 third of pint of microbrew on tap. It dumb of me, but I got cocky.
