So there I was, staring at the plumbing and toilet parts in Lowe's contemplating how I was going to make a tap tower for my three tap keezer and then it hit me "those pipes look kinda familiar if I paint the black pipe green", I thought to myself. With that, an idea was born. As I played with the various ABS fittings, caps, and pipe like a boy with tinker toys with employees and fellow customers alike giving me looks like I should be in a padded cell I was able to pin down the design. Next stop was Toys R Us to find some figures to turn into tap handles, because you can't just have the Mario pipe with no Mario figures right? I'm actually trying to get a set of Wario, Waluigi, and Dry Bones as well with the Halloween season coming up so soon. The rest of the plan involves the rest of the keezer and some kind of underground scene for the bottom sides, as well as a brick top and clouds on the drip tray, but i'm still farming out that idea.

Truly inspired! Love the idea and the description. I have been "that guy" enough times to know the feeling as well.

Well done. One of the more clever things I've seen on here.

That. Is. Awesome. That makes me want to redo my keezer just so I can add that tower.

This has got to be the most awesome tap design I've seen yet. Being a fellow gamer, along with having grown up on the NES playing Mario from it's inception, this design takes the cake! or the princess!

You need to make one out of the piranha plant since they tend to live in the pipes. Heck if I had made that tower I would make one for each of the characters and have some associate. Like pbowser for something spicy, the piranha plant for an IPA...

But I like. Well done.
