This complete bar installation is one of our favourite and most creative to date. Ignition Brewery gave us a lot of free rein with the design but stipulated that we had to use wood reclaimed through Solo Wood in Croydon – a Social Enterprise that gives work to help rehabilitate people with dependency issues amoungst others, a cause that we take seriously at Love Beer.

All of the materials used on this project were obtained through Solo Wood, we repurposed used plywood to build the shelving and main frame. The bar top was made out of sanded and polished scaffold boards and all the shelving was made out of old cherry wood floor boards. The effect is a striking, colourful and heavy duty bar design.

The bar has a simple 4 tap wall built into a specially designed unit to dispense the breweries own beers through. The keg and cellar space is neatly integrated into a cabinet underneath the taps. Although there is no cooling in the cellar space all the lines are run directly through chilled lines from the keg to the tap to keep the beer pouring as well as possible given the storage restrictions.

★★★★★ – Charles and Liam built us a stunning colourful bar out of recycled wood for our new taproom in Sydenham, South London. They designed, built and installed our bar, 4 lines and a chiller, set up our dispense, and built us shelves, a chalkboard and a window bar. Looks fab and we’re really happy with it!
