In stock and ready to ship.

This small draft system part performs a big, important role: connecting 5/16" beer line and air line tubing to keg couplers and draft beer tower shanks.


    When it comes to draft beer systems, even the smallest parts are crucial to their proper function. Case in point: this 5/16" Tail Piece, which performs the critical role of attaching 5/16-inch vinyl beer and air line tubing to couplers and shanks.

    For the uninitiated, beer and air line connect to a coupler at the keg end, and beer line connects to a shank at the faucet end. A tail piece like this one is required at all three sites to get the job done. It fits inside of a hex nut, and a washer is employed to form a tight seal between it and the coupler or shank in question.

    Like all premium draft parts, the 5/16" Tail Piece is made from durable stainless steel, which means it is built to last AND won't corrode from long-term contact with beer. If you're building a revamping a draft system with 5/16-inch line, it's a necessity.
