Beer Fridges

Whether you have a separate entertainment area in your home or just enjoy a perfectly chilled beer when you unwind, having a bar fridge can be a welcome addition to your home.

When making your choice among the various beer fridges out there, consider aesthetics and functionality, and make sure you get the best value for your money.

Why You Should Think About Investing In A Beer Fridge
A beer fridge can come in useful if your household refrigerator is filled to capacity with food and doesn't have the space to store cans or bottles of beer. The biggest advantage of a beer fridge though is that you can customize the temperature to get the perfect chill for your favorite beverage. You don't have to worry about freezing food accidentally or sipping a lukewarm beverage, as a bar fridge allows you to store your beers at a much cooler temperature. Here are some of the options that you have available to you:

When you are shopping around consider the storage capacity and how much it can hold. Also look for something with adjustable or removable shelves so you can store bigger or smaller bottles and cans if required.

Glass Beer Fridges
Glass fridges are sophisticated and look great in a bar, but they are used most frequently in restaurants and bars because they can showcase the different brands most effectively. If you are a collector and have some tempting brews in storage, this might appeal to you, but bear in mind that they are the most expensive option out there and can set you back considerably. If you do opt for a glass fridge, be sure to store it in a dark area as sunlight can penetrate the glass and spoil your stores.

The Mini Beer Fridge
A mini beer fridge is a smaller and cheaper alternative to glass. The most common color is white, but there are finishes that can match other appliances, like steel and black, and while it may not look as stylish as its glass doored counterpart it will save you some money.

Six Can Beer Fridges
These fridges can store a six pack of beer and are ideal for taking on picnics, camping and when you are travelling and use 12V power. Their biggest advantage is portability, but also bear in mind that while in transit, they might not necessarily keep your beer as cold as a mini fridge. They also only hold six beers at a time and have a smaller capacity than other mini beer fridges.
