At KegWorks, we love home bars. We love them so much that they’re basically the reason we even exist. It is our staunch belief that every home in America should have a bar standing at the ready, willing and able to provide a base of operations for any rollicking celebration of life you feel like hosting.
Grandma’s birthday? Let’s have cake by the bar and watch DVR’d episodes of the Price is Right! Fantasy football championship? Bar that bad bitch up! Did you wake up today? Well that calls for a wee little drinkity doodle at the old home watering hole! Once you take the plunge and decide to build your own personal pub paradise, you’ll never run out of excuses to belly up and have a good time with family and friends.
If you’re lucky enough to be a home bar owner, you can probably count on one hand the number of moments in your life that were more glorious than driving in that last nail, standing up, and saying, "It’s done. And it’s mine. And it’s beautiful." Hell, if you’ve never had sex, you probably don’t need more than a finger or two.
I mean, what really beats that? Having your own home bar, in all its carefully measured, masterfully constructed glory, is a statement to the world. It is a symbol of success, an offering to the social calendar gods that says, "I’m ready to party whenever you are." It’s pretty much impossible to have a handsome home bar and be anything less than the coolest guy in your neighborhood (unless you live in the same neighborhood as Mr. T or any magicians/ventriloquists).
Of course, none of this really applies if you stock your bar like an idiot. If you go through the painstaking effort of building your bar, only to load it up with bottles of Bud and little else, I feel safe to assume that you probably didn’t learn to tie your shoes until you were 12. Seriously man, get real. Or at least get less dumb.
Why waste your effort? Better yet, why waste what should be the incredibly awesome end product of your effort? A poorly stocked home bar is an affront to all that we hold dear and quite frankly, we’re going to take it personally. We’ve done everything we can to make your life of the bar as pain-free as possible. We know how hard you worked, and trust us, we appreciate it. But stopping now, without a proper accounting for of all the necessary little things that make a good bar a great one, is an indefensible decision. So don’t even try to defend it.
Instead, take advantage of our expertise. We are your very knowledgeable friend whose lone desire is to help you get set up behind the stick as effortlessly and completely as possible. For example, consider our Ultimate Home Bar Set-Up Kit or the Essential Bar Tool Set. Both of these kits were carefully curated by our resident cocktail culture experts in an attempt to bring you all the unglamorous little necessities in one comprehensive package. You don’t have to shop around like you’re on Supermarket Sweep, you don’t have to guess which tools are really worthwhile of your attention and affection, and best of all, you don’t have to suffer the stigma that comes with looking like an under-prepared amateur.
You’ve done the hard part. You took raw materials and turned them into a professionally polished home bar. Now it’s time to finish it off right with these starter kits (or some bitters, or a handsome bar foot rail, or some stools, or some…well, you get the idea). If there’s anything we can do to help, give us a call today and we’ll do our best to make sure your home bar is everything it should be!
