Continental Purple Snake Beer Transfer Hose Assembly
The Continental Purple Snake is one of the best, if not the best, beer transfer hose for brewery applications. When it comes to durability, the Continental Purple Snake is designed to last and perform to the demands of your brewery.
For brewers that aim to achieve a consistent flavor profile and aroma, the Continental Purple Snake hose is the perfect choice due to its odor and taste-neutral lining.
All of our brewery hoses are custom made to your specs in order to suit your needs - select the I.D. size, choose either crimped TC fittings or banded on, then select the overall length of your hose in Ft. Once your order is submitted, we take care of the rest.
All crimped assemblies will have Stainless Steel Sanitary shells and Stainless Steel 1-1/2" TC Sanitary Fittings. The TC fittings will be 1-1/2" for both the 1" and 1-1/2" I.D. hoses.

We give you the option of having your Sanitary Flange Fittings either crimped or band clamped onto your hose assembly. Crimped fittings are hydraulically pressed on for a permanent fit onto your hose and banded fittings are band clamped on. The bands can be cut and the fittings reused if needed for quick repairs. The band clamped fittings are more budget friendly than the crimped on fittings. We recommend crimped fittings for a contamination-free connection, but we also have a fair share of customers that prefer banded on fittings as they have not had any issues with this connection method.
