I think the lights would only be on for a short period just to admire then be shut off.
No maybe not but I bet the light coming thru the glass windows will.

Totally awesome. Have you considered making one section like a wine refrigerator so you can age your vintage beers?

You could easily do that. However, I use the old cistern room in my basement for that!

Overall, it looks like an awesome project!

Cool idea!

That way I could put a door on the front and hide/lock the taps when I didn't want them accessed! I think I will build that in.

Thanks!

yea, a recessed coffin sounds awesome! a lockable door would work great, and streamline the front
