Default My Man Cave/Tap Room

I have always wanted a bar. Unfortunately the house we currently live in has no basement, so a full bar was out of the question. My wife and I love our keezer but she feels bad having friends go to a dirty garage to get a beer. She let me clear out half our one car garage and turn it into a small tap room. She hung thermal curtains to separate it from the rest of the garage so it heats up quickly when its cold. Its only 10x10 but its my piece of heaven, especially since I now have two daughters.















I guess I should get her a Valentine's Gift now.

That's a GREAT little set-up. A really good use of space. Treat that lady right!

Props for the Hofbrau mug. I love the look of your keezer too.

Thanks for the compliments. Its a nice place to relax after work, have a beer, and read the forum or hangout when people are over. During the winter, I brew out of the garage anyway, so I'll be right on the other side of the curtain.

Cheers

That is too freaking cool. Any info on that "thermal curtain"? Link?

My wife got them at Walmart on sale for $10 a panel.

They do a pretty good job. There is a significant temperature difference between each side of the curtain. It will get probably get better when she gets the valance along the top of the ceiling to really seal it off.
