BBQ, Bar & Beer

Steve & Fran, old friends of ours, invited us over for a BBQ lunch today. We hadn't seen them since New Years Eve. It was also a chance for them to show us the result of some recent home renovations they have made. They've built a family room/bar in a room under the house, a deck in their back yard and a wooden fort/play area for their two little boys.
I've known Steve for almost 20 years. We used to play Dungeons & Dragons together. Even back then Steve had fantasised about having his own bar with beer on tap. Well, a wife, 2 kids and a mortgage later, Steve's fantasy is now reality.

He showed me around. He has a fridge with two kegs of his home-brewed beer hooked up inside. You can pour your own beer from taps on the fridge. We had the choice of a lager and a wheat beer. Both were quite nice. In the other part of the room he has a small home theatre set up.!

Needless to say, we had a lovely afternoon. Deb was the designated driver so I was able to give Steve's bar the full attention it deserved.

I thought I'd post these photos as most blokes would appreciate looking at them. I know Steve is not the only person who would love beer on tap at home.
