A beer shank is the one part whose importance should not be underestimated. Connecting the rest of the draft beer system to the beer tower and the faucet via a beer line, the shank plays quite an important role in the beer dispensing process.
Welcome to the UBC Group USA website where we offer a wide variety of beer taps and faucet accessories designed primarily for commercial use, including some custom solutions to suit any draft beer system.

A typical draft beer tap shank may seem to some as a pretty basic piece of equipment. Still, shanks do have their own quirks and feature one should know about when shopping for a beer tower shank.
Speaking of the shank itself, it is essentially a threaded metal tube made of stainless steel that runs either through a refrigerator wall or the top of the beer tower. One end of a shank features a female thread for the beer line and a male thread for the faucet.
Beer shanks may be sold separately (just the tube) or a beer shank assembly (contains all the parts required for connection). Needless to say, you can find plenty of both options available on our website.
UBC Group USA offers beer shanks of various styles, sizes, and configurations to match any draft beer dispensing setup. You can also get a beer faucet and shank combo or simply shop different parts, including a beer shank nut, flange, ring, etc.
