Me? Actually it's 80" from my favorite spot. The living room. 8)

Mines in the garage but I mostly use it for fermentation/storage as the back room stays cool enough for serving purposes so that's where active kegs live.

Mine's in the laundry room, through the living room and kitchen.  But I have such a small house that it isn't far.

Mine's in the basement in my brewing area.
As noted earlier, going up and down stairs give me some exercise!

Out in the shop.  I did not vote garage because I have to go outside to get there.

I can haul arse across the cold and snow to get there though,
and there is a wood stove out there if I get stranded. :D

Right in the kitchen where it belongs!  Same with the DBF and the chest freezer for fermentation.

Its in the garage.  Although technically the beer equipment takes up more space than the car and tools combined.  Does that mean I should call it the brewery?

Like Denny, mine's in the laundry room. Fortunately, that's only about 10 feet from my couch and TV.
