Michigan Bar Draft Beer Line Hall of Shame.

Thu Nov 15, 2012 12:56 pm

I've seen some pretty disgusting beer lines in my day, but this takes the cake. I have had nasty beer in a few places though that I suspect had lines like this. Any of you seen any this bad?

I'll never order a draft beer again :shock:

There are a few places near me that I suspect would also have this problem. I could have never imagined that a line can be that gross.. I would think that people would notice the junk floating in their beer.

I had to stop watching halfway through... I want to be able to enjoy the beer I just poured myself (from a bottle).

That stuff is f-ed up.
Ewww.
It was nice to see one of the bartenders at my local, using R2D2 to clean the lines.

I went to a Micromatic beer line cleaning seminar. They brought some sections of pretty nasty beer line. There are some people doing a shaby job of cleaning beer lines. The guy giving the seminar owns a line cleaning business in the Rockford, Il area. He said he would go into a bar and offer to clean 2 lines for free to show them how dirty they were. Sometimes he could just show them the gunk through the clear beer line. His competition started using black beer line. What a douche!

I was surprised to not see the old Intersection in Grand Rapids in there. Never saw the lines, but even if they gave us drink tickets for playing that night we still gave them away & went next door to Mulligan's. Sad when the irish punk/metal bar has better tasting beer than the venue.

Hmm...brings me to a question. My lines from my kegerator are snaked thru the side of the serving fridge, then thru a wall to my taps. The fridge itself is crammed under a stariway. Except for 1) using BLC or 2) replacing my lines, I can't really do a good job cleaning them. Suggestions for cleaning besides what I've mentioned so I don't have lines like those?
