Understanding Beer & Air Lines
Two often overlooked but crucial components of any draft beer setup are your beer and air lines. Without these important plastic tubes, the system can’t function and you can’t pour perfect pints.
What You Need to Know About Beer & Air Line
KegWorks offers beer and air lines by the foot in food-grade vinyl to fit the specifications of any draft beer system. For beer lines, we carry 3/16", 3/8", and 1/4" inside diameter tubing. The air lines come in 5/16” inside diameter, and many customers opt for red air line hose so that they can easily differentiate between their air and beer lines.
Keep Your Lines Squeaky Clean
Who wants to drink dirty draft beer? The answer is no one. That’s why it’s extremely important to be diligent about cleaning your beer lines. We recommend that you clean your beer lines after every finished keg. This will ensure that your new beer pours perfectly and tastes the way it’s supposed to.
