Default New Dispenser

It's about a month or so before the new dispenser is built -- the old one came out great but didn't work --- http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f51/my-man-cave-adult-beverage-dispenser-282464/

I received a new chest freezer from my bride yesterday as a Christmas gift. --Sears Kenmore Elite = 19.7 cu. ft. Chest Freezer -- I'm not so sure I want to do another football field as the top of the old one will be hanging on the wall in the "brewery"

Got any ideas what you would do if time and/or patience wasn't a problem?

It would be a bit "ambitious" to say the least, but since you set the bar so high with the first attempt, why not? I think it would be amazing if you could do an optical illusion similar to this chalk art:

Okay, after reading your last build... very impressive, the only improvement I can think of is having GREEN BAY on it... However, it looked great.

That illusion stuff would be crazy if it was beer related, like half the keezer ripped open with the kegs and lines showing...

I will be watching for updates on your new project. Best of luck.

Subscribed. Let see how this one finishes. I am a sucker for a keezer build.

I think it would be amazing if you could do an optical illusion similar to this chalk art:

The only problem with the sidewalk art is that you only see the imagine from one side at a particular angle. The new dispenser will be a focal point in the brewery and be seen from all angles.

I'm still kinda leaning towards the direction of a NFL theme, but I also think a Jimmy Buffett / Tiki Bar / Beach theme would look awesome. Even though I'm in the Texas area I'm showing my South Florida youth!

I pick up the new freezer next weekend and dismantle the old one today -

Sure wish I didn't live 2 hours from the nearest Brewing Club....... Local help/drinking buddies would be great ---- I live among bud/miller/coors people and they have a REAL HARD TIME drinking beer that has any flavor....
