Default Keezer Finally Made It Into My Bar

Here is my keezer placed in it's final resting spot in my basement bar. The bar is not 100% complete, but almost there. Still need drop ceiling & accent lighting installed, log bar stools refinished, and the slate tile cleaned and sealed. I'm making one final push over the next few weeks to knock this thing out. Here's what I have so far. After drop ceiling, I just need carpet installation throughout the rest of the basement and she's finally done! Only took me 3 years to finish the basement so far, but I'm finishing just under 2000 sq. ft. by myself and these damn home brewing projects, like the keezer build, keep slowing me down. I promised my wife that the basement would be 100% complete before I start building my single tier, 3 vessel, all grain rig, but who the hell know at this point.

I just completed my keezer. I took inspiration from here, though I came up with a different means of attaching the drip tray.

The keezer:


For the drip tray mount, I bought 2 15" hanging plant hooks from Lowe's. I bent them slightly, both to make the tray sit level, and to center it under the faucets. See here:

A Love temp controller. I mounted it in the plastic grate that covers the compressor on the bottom left side. I wanted it accessible, but more or less hidden. I may eventually apply some window tint to make it less bright, as it casts a red glow on the wall.
