    Overview

    You have your cooling unit, beer tower, and faucet all ready to go. Now you just need a beer shank to start dispensing tasty draft beer.

    The shank is a threaded metal tube that connects the beer line inside of your refrigerator to the beer faucet in your bar. It is inserted through a hole drilled into the refrigerator wall or house wall.

    Made of chrome-plated brass, these shanks are sturdy, effective, and economical. Depending on how thick your refrigerator or wall is, you can order your shank between 2 and 14 inches long.

    Each shank comes with a coupling nut, sleeve, snap ring, plastic flange, and flanged locknut. For your convenience, all shanks are shipped completely assembled.

    These shanks will fit on all North American faucets with ⅞-inch x 14 straight pipe thread. If you’re using equipment from outside North America, you’ll need to source a specialty shank.

    Be sure to accurately measure your wall and beer setup to order the correct shank length. If you have a multi-tap draft system, you will need a shank for each faucet. To make it easier, you can save money by ordering your shanks in bulk.

    What difference does shank size make?
    A shopper on Feb 8, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: It's the actual length of the shank. It depends on the width of the surface you'll be putting the shank through. For instance, if you are mounting them to the wall of a walk-in cooler and the cooler has 6-inch thick walls you'll need at least an 8-inch shank to go through the wall and have enough sticking out inside the cooler to connect the mounting nut and the beer line hose nut to. Basically, the thicker the wall, the longer the shank you'll need.
    i need 18" shanks, can you get those and domestic beer faucets to match ?

    So the outside diameter is 7/8” is that the hole size that should be drilled?
    JonnyC on Oct 12, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I think we used a 1" paddle bit for the hole. Leaves a little wiggle room. Otherwise 7/8 would be too tight.
    I have a 3" thick freezer wall, will the 3" shank provide enough clearance for the line jumper and faucet to properly connect?
    Clinton P on Jun 24, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: From my experience I would have to say, no. That is the true shank size, so you will have to buy an longer shank.
    What else would I need to get beer from my keg to the faucet?
    Gerardo Z on Jan 16, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: You will need a coupler and beer line jumper. The type of coupler you need depends on which type of beer you are planning to dispense. A typical home kegerator only need a 5' beer line jumper, which includes the connectors to attach the line to the coupler and shank.

    You will also need a CO2 tank, regulator and air line.

    If you're building a draft system from scratch, our kegerator conversion kits would be a great way to get started. It included everything you need to set up a basic draft beer system.
