Building a keg bar stool for the home brewery.

Home Brewer Seating

Beer Brewery Keg Stool


For my most recent home brewing project I converted an old decommissioned 5 gallon keg that my buddy hooked me up with in to some seating for brew day! For me, half of the enjoyment of home beer brewing is being creative, either in designing beer recipes or making things such as homebrew tap handles, home brewing equipment or accessories like this brewery bar stool, beer brewing throne!


The design process for this brewery bar stool, keg stool was pretty hap hazard. Basically I went online, search for an inexpensive bar stool that had the aesthetics that I was looking for for the base materials and cut it up to be used for parts. As expected, the homebrew bar stool did not fit together perfectly so there was a good deal of cutting, grinding, welding and finishing involved to get the keg stool to fit together as desired. All in the project took about 3 hours but I am happy with the results. Having the ability to adjust the height on the seat comes in pretty handy depending on what project I am working on.  The additional legs around the base of the keg adds some stability to the stool in case one of my friends or I has had a few too many!

The tools that I used to make my brewery stool were a old crappy mig welder, grinder, hack saw / cut saw, wire brush, hammer and a little sand paper for finishing. If you would like to make your own brewing throne, brewery stool, keg stool or keg seat and have any questions, please feel free to ask or leave a comment.  I am always happy to help a fellow home brewer out!

Hoppy Brew Year!

I just wanted to wish everyone a Hoppy Brew Year and a Happy New Year. 2015 ended up being a great brewing year for me and I was able to add some new home brewing equipment to my setup and brew some great beer batches with my friends and family.


I have a couple of beers in the works for 2016 right now and if they come out well, I hope to post the recipe for anyone who is interested. I hope you had a great 2015 and have an even better 2016.


Here are a couple of home brewing photos from November and December 2015
