My Beverage-Air kegerator didn't come with towers. I wanted something cool and a little different, so I ordered one up custom from ACU Metal Fab. They were easy to work with and it took less than a month from the time I first contacted them to having it in my hands.

Excuse the state of my kegerator Here it is, fresh out of the box.



Why is there a rectangular hole, I hear you ask? I'm glad you did!



Turns out I broke the old analog thermostat on the kegerator, so I bought a Love controller to replace it. Typically, I had a typo in the measurements I sent them and the hole's a little oversize. I'll be making a bezel to hide my stupidity and shame.

I'd just like to tell you that you've now been put on the list of people I have to either befriend, kill, or both.... honesty, that is freaking sweet. Not to be tacky, but would you mind telling (PM if you're more comfortable) me a ball park of what that cost? I've been thinking how to set mine up and didn't that even existed!

Sure, it was $450 shipped. Which seems like a lot, until you start pricing commercial 8-tap towers. And this was custom built to my specifications.

I couldn't be happier with it.

Nah, Bender's ok sharing the glory

I fixed the too-big opening with a bezel I made from a stainless switchplate I had lying around for some reason.



Not bad.

Controller mounted in like that is awesome, love the idea and going to put one in my gas pump I believe. Are you monitoring the kegerator with it or you forcing air into the tower and watching that?
