Welcome to The Drunken Hen, one of the highlights of this year’s Bachman’s Fall Ideas House. It’s an Outdoor Beer Pub, located in the space formerly reserved for the She Shed, Kid’s Clubhouse, and the chicken coop.

The Outdoor Beer Pub taps into (pardon the pun) another fun trend, pub sheds. There’s a popular website in Britain with a Shed of the Year competition, and there’s even a company in Boston that rents out inflatable backyard pub sheds for parties.

But why travel to Britain or Boston when we have this wonderful example in our own (well, technically, in the Ideas House’s) backyard?

Enjoy our virtual tour:

This year’s Bachman’s Fall Ideas House is called “Warm Days, Cool Nights.” All of the rooms are painted with Hirshfield’s paints and they are decorated with mixed metals, Terracotta hues, and cool blues. You can visit the Bachman’s Fall Ideas House 7 days a week through Oct. 2.

Since Frank and Elizabeth Hirshfield opened their first store in 1894, it has been our mission to do the best job possible meeting customer needs and solving customer problems. Hirshfield’s. People and products you can trust.
