This is Epic! Just wish I had more space and money. Did you build this all yourself? My hat is off to you sir!

AC Beverage in Annapolis, MD. While researching remote draft systems I came across their website and noticed they were local. I gave them a call with some questions and they were extremely helpful. I took a trip to their warehouse and spent a good hour and a half asking questions, strolling through their inventory etc.

They had a 300' 16 product line going out to a pub in Boston. It was HUGE! They do many local resturants and bars as well as major venues like MLB statiums yet they never made me feel like I was wasting their time.

So I'm planing on order most if not all of equipment from them now and in the future.

They are really good people!

HA! no. I did the design and some heavy lifting. The bar is 100% custom and started life as a pile of unplained raw cherry lumber so I found a local guy (like 2 miles from my house) who is retired but used to own a fine millwork business.

Brass tower is polishing up really nicely! My plan it to keep the current summit undercounter kegerator in place and run the draft tower's trunkline into it and drill a 3" hole out the back of it where it'll connect to the Beer Python behind the cabinets. That's so I still get to keep a bit of frig space (I've learned you can never have enough) and there's not this gapping hole under the counter!

Running the Python is going to be an adventure. The stuff is not very flexible and I don't have much clearance in the column (there's a pole there). I did get some 5 & 6 product samples before hand to test. The insulation is 3/4" thick so that gives some leaway.

thats completely amazing from the first post I saw..

btw, the doors to enter the back bar aren't even. I don't know if that has been fixed but that would bug the $#!t outta me since your bar is in almost everyway absolutley frikken gorgeous.
