Trunkline & Tubing: The Essentials for Your Draft Beer System
When it comes to setting up a draft beer system, one crucial aspect that cannot be overlooked is the use of proper trunkline and tubing.

Insidebeer.com is a leading supplier of a wide range of trunkline and tubing products that are guaranteed to meet the strictest criteria and work perfectly with any beer dispensing setup.
Types of Tubing in a Draft Beer System
In a draft beer system, two main types of tubing are used - airline and beer line.
Air Line - This connects to the gas regulator on your CO2 cylinder and runs all the way down to the keg where it is attached to the keg coupler. Typically made of food-grade PVC tube with a 5/16 inch inside diameter, airlines are clear and connect to the keg coupler and gas regulator by barbed fittings that are tightened with hose clamps.
Beer Line - This screw onto the top of the keg coupler and connects to the shank or draft beer tower. Made of food-grade PVC, beer lines typically feature a 3/16 inch inside diameter and run about 5 feet for most dispensing situations, but it can vary in length depending on the system. Beer lines can come in three possible variations: 3/16 inch inside diameter beer line (most common variety), 1/4 inch inside diameter beer line, and 3/8 inch inside diameter beer line (suitable for long-draw systems). The end fittings on a beer line consist of barbed tailpieces inside of the line tightened with hose clamps and secured to the keg coupler and shank by hex nuts and beer line washers.
Materials Used in Trunkline and Tubing
Like beer lines, airlines are typically made of food-grade PVC with a 5/16-inch inside diameter, and they are clear. Beer lines are usually made of clear PVC to help you spot any disturbances in the line like sediment or foam buildup. However, some manufacturers offer beer lines in colors, making it easier to differentiate between beer and airlines. In addition, there are various types of tubing available in the market, including clear braided tubing, translucent poly tubing, and clear barrier tubing.
