Claims

1. A beverage container provided with an inner space, at least partly filled with carbonated beverage and a valve assembly attached in the beverage container, in particular a top surface thereof, which valve assembly comprises a valve body biased in a closing direction against a valve seat, and wherein, preferably, an engaging means extending outside the inner space is provided, wherein a pressure control device is provided which comprises a reservoir, filled with a pressure gas, which reservoir is in communication with the inner space, at least during use, preferably via a pressure control device, and wherein the dispensing device comprises an operating device for pressing the valve body away from the valve seat, which operating device comprises a part of a beverage dispensing channel and is provided with means for maintaining the valve assembly in an opened position.
2. A beverage container according to claim 1, wherein the operating device is provided with first and second coupling means, wherein the second coupling means are at least partly movable within the first coupling means for moving the valve body away from the valve seat and wherein engaging means are provided for engagement of said engaging element and/or the first coupling means in a manner such that said valve body is maintained in the position moved away from the valve seat.
3. A beverage container according to claim 1 or 2, wherein said part of the beverage dispensing channel extends through first and/or the second coupling means.
4. A beverage container according to claim 2 or 3, wherein the second coupling means are movable relative to the first coupling means between a first and a further position, while, in the first position, the first coupling means extend further outside the second coupling means than in the further position.

5. A beverage container according to any one of the preceding claims 2 — 4, wherein the engaging element comprises an edge extending at least partly and preferably completely around the valve assembly, in particular an edge of a part with which the valve assembly is attached to the container, wherein the second coupling means are provided at a side proximal to the container with the engaging means, which can at least engage onto, on or under said edge.
6. A beverage container according to any one of the preceding claims 2 - 5, wherein the first coupling means comprise a body which comprises the second coupling means at least partly.
7. A beverage container according to any one of the preceding claims 2 — 6, wherein the first coupling means comprise an at least partly tubular body, while the operating device comprises a part that is movable within said tubular body, guided by at least a portion thereof.
8. A beverage container according to claim 7, wherein said
substantially tubular body is provided on a side proximal to the container with second guide means, in particular a locating edge for guiding and positioning the operating device relative to the valve assembly, in particular the valve body.
9. A beverage container according to any one of the preceding claims, wherein the valve assembly is attached by means of a folded edge connection in a top of the container, which folded edge connection comprises a collar, surrounded by a flange, wherein a valve is provided in or under an opening in said collar and the operating device, in particular first and/or second coupling means are provided with a locating edge on the side proximal to the container for centring thereof relative to the valve assembly through cooperation with said folded edge and/or collar.
10. A beverage container according to any one of the preceding claims 2 - 9, wherein the second coupling means comprise said part of the beverage dispensing channel, which part is somewhat T-shaped with a first part with a first and an opposite, second end, and a second part that links up, between said first and second end, with the first part, wherein a cover cap is provided closing off the second end of the first part, while the first end is provided with at least one inlet opening.
11. A beverage container according to any one of the preceding claims, wherein the pressure control device is included in the inner space.
12. A beverage container according to any one of the preceding claims, wherein in the inner space, a bag is included in which the beverage is confined, which bag links up with the valve assembly and wherein the pressure control device is included in the inner space, preferably between the bag and a wall of the container, separated from the beverage.
13. A beverage container according to any one of the preceding
claims 2 — 12, wherein on the second coupling means, in particular on a part of the beverage dispensing channel extending therethrough, a further part of the beverage dispensing channel is provided, in particular an at least partly flexible dispensing tube or dispensing hose.
14. A beverage container according to claim 13, wherein, in said further beverage dispensing channel, a valve is provided for closing off and opening the beverage dispensing channel.
15. A beverage container according to any one of the preceding
claims 2 - 14, wherein the first and/or second coupling means are attachable to the container, in particular to or on a profiling adjacent the valve assembly.

16. A beverage container according to any one of the preceding claims, wherein in the reservoir, a first volume of pressure gas is provided and in the inner space a second volume of beverage, wherein for each litre of beverage in the second volume at least 3 grams, preferably more than 3.2 grams and more preferably at least 3.4 grams of CO2 are provided in the first volume.
17. An assembly of a beverage container according to any one of the preceding claims and a tapping device, wherein the tapping device is provided with means for including the container at least partly and with tapping means for connection to or cooperation with a beverage dispensing channel of the container or a shut-off included therein.
18. An assembly according to claim 17, wherein the tapping device can be closed all around the container and wherein during or prior to placing of the container in the tapping device, the operating device is operated in a manner such that at least partly because of that, the valve body is pressed away and/or is maintained pressed away from the valve seat, in particular is brought and maintained in a fourth position.
19. A method for tapping beverage, in particular carbonated beverage such as beer, wherein the container comprises an inner space in which beverage is included and a valve assembly for dispensing the beverage from the inner space, and a pressure control device preferably integrated in or on the container for controlling the pressure in the inner space, wherein on the valve assembly, an operating device is pressed in for opening and maintaining opened the valve assembly.
