Beer Keezer...I'm starting to think I may have a problem

I homebrew several hundred gallons a year and I hate bottling so I'm pretty much only kegs and the place we bought has a nice bar but no room for a keg fridge.  SWMBO was adamant that if I wanted beer upstairs near the bar it must not look like an old beer fridge or a freezer, so this is what I did.

The finish matches the bar fairly well (distressed black) and it sits off to the side slightly.  Whole thing is on rollers so I can just roll it over to the couch when she's not around...

ps.  Can someone tell me how to post pics?  Usually I copy the IMG (URL...) from Photobucket but that doesn't seem to be working for me here.

    There's a link beneath the comment box called "attach a file" > that you can use to upload. Once it's uploaded you can hover over the image to "insert image" to place a larger version where your cursor is.

    Very cool!  Do you have five different beers on tap at once, then?

    Nice!  Any chance to see a photo of the inside of it?

    I feel a whole lot more like I do now than I did when I got here.
  • Nice Keezer, I have just a plain old freezer version. I am in the process of sourcing the parts to built a tri clamp version for all of my taps , similar to you build ,I love the look of tri clamps :) 
  • So I'm definitely going to steal your idea...

    My brother and I brew about 20 batches (extract) per year and keg everything. We currently use glass front display fridges that have a 4-keg capacity on two regulators. While the display fridge looks cool and seeing all of the hoses and regulators is neat, the wife is not happy that it's in the breakfast nook. Something like this would be perfect!

    Thanks for the innovative idea!

    OK, lets see if I can figure out the inside picture here.

    I'm running cornies on a 10 lb CO2 tank.  I am only running one regulator with everything at about 10 psi on 1/4 inch lines.  Because the tubing isn't insulated I do get an ounce or so of foam on the first pour but I pour into a solo cup and then dump it (or drink it later).  I brew a lot, like a stupid amount, maybe 300 gallons a year (Canada doesn't have the limit that the US does).  I give a lot of it away to friends, parties etc.  
    The inside holds 4 full size 5 gallon cornies and one 3 gallon on the hump.  The freezer is controlled with an analog Johnson controller set in a bottle of water.  I run it at 38 F because the controller is in Farenheit but it's about 4 celsius.  I need to add some damp-rid for moisture control but as long as I don't open it much I don't get issues.
