If you're about to buy 3/16" ID beer hose for all four faucets, I'd get at least 10 feet per run, maybe even 12'. It's easier to shorten them than lengthen them ;)

What he said ^. And the only side effect of lines that are too long is a slightly slower pour.

If you intend to keg Saison or Hefeweizen, you might want a 15-20' line for that keg.
