If you want towers and don't mind some extra work, you could build the towers into your bar. Then place the keezer nearby and connect it to the tower with beer lines run through flexible, insulated tubing. You'll need to rig a fan to keep cold air flowing through that tubing. Then you have the best of both options.I have thought about doing that as the wall behind my bar will be in my unfinished space. I have thought about taking the lines through the wall into towers on the back bar. Besides the pain of engineering all that, I don't really have a wall yet! I'm wanting to go ahead and get the keezer built - sick of bottling Then, I will finish the bar around it. I'm not really a fan of all these plans that fully encase the chest freezer. I know they say they maintain enough airflow around it, but I'm not convinced. I looked into buying an under-counter unit, but you are looking at $1600 or so, and three taps is the best you can do.
I found this keezer plan yesterday. I'm kind of crushing on it a little. As I slowly buy parts, I'm not super committed to anything until I buy shanks, I guess. I am liking that four tap tower...
