My brothers and I spent the end of last week framing out our new Brewshops' bar. It measures 10'x4'x3' and will have two(2) 8' shelves,and a 2'x4'x18" built in humidor and dual wine rack. It'll also have a bar covered in bottle caps/epoxy.

We're looking forward to adding the bar top and back counter tops when it STOPS raining here in So Cal The Bar will have 18 taps!!!!! 8 in our keezer,8 in the big kegerator and 2 in the smaller kegerator

Here's a few pics/comments on the progress we made. Will be adding more as we progress.

Salud!

Out of curiosity, could you tell me how many cubic feet your keezer is? I see that it has many taps on it, and was wondering if you actually had room for 8 kegs in it.

Back on topic, the bar you're building looks to be absolutely fantastic. What are you planning to do with the wine racks? Are they going to be enclosed in anything for cooling, etc? Are you planning on plumbing it? Inquiring minds (well, at least one!) want to know!

What'd you use to mount the tap handles to the wall? It looks like some kind of simple bracket, but I can't tell from the pictures...

NICE build, man! I'm getting ideas. Ideas, and jealous feelings...

Man... thats a lot of tap handle action! Buying handles like that on ebay they're still a good $20-40 each. Nice collection! ... and the bar is going to be great too! hehe

My Keezer(on the right) is 15 cf and Yes it has room for 8(5 gal)sankeys. The Kegerator on the left(my brothers) has 2 draft towers with 4 taps each. It will hold our 1/2 barrel collection.

The wine racks will NOT be cooled(We drink red wine)I will use 1"x1"s to hold the wine bottles in place. I'm not gonna have any plumbing(wet bar)

Thanks for the kudos!

Thank you for the compliments!

My brother and I cut aluminum angle into 1.5" pieces. The tap handles are held in place by 3/8 bolts and lock washers. The brackets are drilled with 2 holes for drywall screws.

Thanks so much! The taps weren't that expensive. I got some really good deals. I bought several lots of tap handles and sold many duplicates or BMC taps.
