This is why I like to use 3/16" beer line and 1/4" hose barbs on everything, liquid and gas. It will never leak, even without clamps.
The Venturi effect is only applicable during fluid flow, so when he's pouring a beer like you mentioned. In his case the gas is appearing in his lines while the beer is static.

I just meant maybe it was sucking air while pouring, then collecting into pockets after sitting still.

I think some beer is leaking out and I just hadn't noticed it. Real small drip crusties. When you look at the barb closely as you dispense there are bubbles moving across.
