Default If SWMBO gave you 280 sq. ft.........

Ok, if SWMBO gave you an unfinished room, 20'x14", for brewing, drinking, poker playing, storing kegs, etc., what how would you finish it?

In other words, the brewhaus, playhaus, dawghaus.

Let your minds wander.....I'm looking for ideas for Das Brauhaus.

Perhaps Yuri and Brewpastor can store their toys in it.

I'd make it a workshop and keep brewing outside. Perhaps there'd be a nice chest freezer/tap setup in the corner, though...

i can hang out on the screened and glassed in porch area, i'd turn it into a mini brewery. put a vent hood in over the plumbed in natural gas burners. floor, walls. ceiling would all be tile for hosing it down and clean up. huge stainless steel sinks. walk in fridge. you know, a small brewers kitchen.

I would Plumb it with natural gas so I wouldn't have to go outside. Put a huge fan and hood over the brewery. next to the sculpture on one side would be a SS double sink, on the other side would be my fermenters (conical of course). There would be a SS counter top under which there would be storage for bottles(gotta put beer in bottles for contests you know) hop scales, etc... There would be a pool table, a wet bar, BEER ON TAP A MUST!!! Giant screen TV with surround. Plenty of seating. Oh, forgot... the tacky girly posters. I'm not into posters of such nature but women dislike them... ALOT! it would just be one of the many tactics to keep the women out of this MAN ZONE!!! anything to keep the SWMBO OUT!!! Oh yeah, forgot, I would black out the windows. Why? Cause if I pass out in my man zone I don't want the sun awaking me to a hangover, I'd rather sleep through it. Think I might even allow smoking in mine. SWMBO can't stand it. I don't like it either too much, but I do enjoy brandybuck tobacco from a pipe from time to time. Grats man, btw, on scoring a zone of your own. that ROCKS!!!

Thanks for the ideas! Keep them coming. I don't smoke myself, but the occasional cigar during a game of Texas Hold'em works for me.

I've been purusing Craigslist for the stainless sinks & counters. Some neat stuff.

This is exactly what I'm building. It will be 20' wide and 14' deep with a 6' covered porch in front. I have just a tad over 4 acres, so I have room to put it somewhere.

Ed, that's going to be righteous. You literally could line the back wall with the brewery, put a bar in front of it and leave the rest of the front area for pool, darts, poker, whatever... Restaurant supply stores might also be able to lead you to some used equipment as well.

So this is a completely separate building? With its own plumbing and all that?

Ed, I have nothing to say except that if you need someone to help break in the poker table, I can be on a plane... that's going to be wicked sweet.

Woah... That is one sexy lookin brew shed. *Green with envy* You could put the bar directly to the right, or left as you walk in so you could run a tap to the porch. When you are sitting outside BBQing you wouldn't want to walk that extra 10 feet for a beer now, would you? That is crazy talk. Why walk 10, 15 feet when you can just lean over and pour a nice cold frosty one. Yeah... that's what I'm talking about!

Make sure it's well insulated. That way if you get too pi**ed to go back in the house you'll sleep nice and cosy!
