Default Brew Room to Bar (here is my build)

Since the day I started brewing 15 months ago til now I have been constantly improving my brewing system from the point of where and how it's brewed to how it is served and drank.

My brew room has been complete for a few months now; just some minor tweaks here and there until I decide to go electric (stay tuned).

The basement is something that I've been working on for the past 12 months and the design and layout of it had much to do with the serving of the beer and entertainment side of things.

Well, here it all is in all its glory: From Brew to Bar

The Brew:

WHat a nice looking place to spend a few hours drinking beer in. Good job! I like the "serve yourself" idea rather than have things hidden behind a bar. Saves you from doing "work", and frees up much-needed space.

Solid stuff.

Damn that is nice. I would love to have a place like that to brew and drink while watching a game. Nice work.

Thanks guys. To the right of the bar is where the theater room is; it's dark in there so the picture quality is poor, but you get the idea.

Nice kegerator. I have been thinking about one of those for my build. I worry those big commercial units are too loud for a home bar setting. What has been your experience? Thanks!
