I've finally started on my bar, after years of talking about it. I'm planning on adding a 2-faucet beer tower. Does anyone have any recommendations on a good place to buy one? It seems like every place I look is asking aroun $100 for a two faucet tower. The crazy thing is Ebay is at least that expensive if not more.

Don't know where you're located, but I've heard of people getting good deals at local restaurant supply shops...

That's a good idea - we have one here (Lincoln, NE) but I'm not sure if it's open to the public.

I think it's all relative to what your will to spend and how much time your willing to Wait to get a good price and what type of Tower your want.

I purchased 4 Ceramic beer Towers off of Ebay for less than 200.00 Each. 3 Double Tapped and 1 Single Taps.

For A Single Chrome/Plastic One I'd just Buy from Someone Like Superior Products or FOXX. I don't see that there is much savings on them on EBAY.

I'd go to beveragefactory.com over Ebay. BF's prices are better.

I want this one for when I move in with the fiance.

But I'll probably end up being two of these to save money (space isn't so much of an object where I'm planning on doing the freezer kegerator.

Nice!

I got both of my towers from BF. Good service and the best prices I could find.

I got a single 3" tower from someone who upgraded to a triple for free, and then bought a 2 tap tower addition on E-bay for $15. Scrounge around your brew club buddies, you might be suprised what is sitting in the basement/garage/attic. My triple tap conversion is shown here:

PS. If you are interested, I have three used 4 tap tombstone type stainless steel towers with built in drip trays that I will let go for $20 each 2 of them have one broken shank each the third is complete. These were taken out of a bar that closed in Boca Raton Fl.
