This is for all you veterans and military enthusiasts out there:

I built the tower out of a brass 105mm artillery shell casing. I drilled two holes in it for the taps and insulated it with foam pipe insulation.

The most difficult part was figuring out how to attach it to the top of the refrigerator since it didn't have a flanged collar for screws. I settled on creating a wooden "donut" that bolts to the refrigerator. The artillery shell then slips down over the top. The donut is tall enough and the fit is tight enough that it holds the tower securely.

It's a bit of a pain to swap out kegs, but it gives me a chance to Brasso the tower from time to time since it tends to tarnish.

Here's to fresh beer on tap in the garage!

This is great work BadOman. Making good use of that 105 casing

The 105MM shell is a nice touch for a tap tower! Good job.

I have to say that using that shell is a very cool addition. Your tap handles are nice but a couple of 50 cal rounds or grenades would be a nice addition to the theme.

I have a .50 cal round I use from time to time but no grenades. I'll have to keep an eye out for one. Thanks for the idea!

Somewhere on here, maybe even in this thread, I saw a kegerator with two taps. One was a .50 cal round and the other was a grenade so I can't take credit for the idea.

I just wanted to thank everyone else who posted pictures and descriptions, great inspiration and ideas. I just finished this last night and this is my first post on here, so... no longer a "lurker" I guess.

Itís just a simple collar job but I may get a bit more elaborate with it in the future.
