Paint the name of your bar on the side and hang it up as a sign.

I think cut the front off, mount to wall and use the faucet to dispense homebrew.

Put it somewhere so the bung on the side of the keg is against a wall. Remove the faucet, and replace with a perlick/shank. Run beer line in from the bung on the side to the faucet. You'd have the coolest "tower" around.

I'm with onthekeg. From what I read here the brewery owns the keg forever and they still have the right to come put bamboo under you fingernails if you do not return it. If the brewery is no longer in operation the original creditors can attack you through bankruptcy court. Is this worth losing your house over?

now we're talking! fountain idea is good too. I love old stuff, so I do want to keep it fairly uncut if possible. I can combine these 3 ideas easily.

those are cool. my dad makes chairs out of old tractor seats. making these would be easy. this keg though has the 'outlet' off center, so I'd have to completely fabricate how to mount the seat part. hmmm...
