The Best Beer Fridges For Your Man Cave
This is the first part of our “Man Cave Essentials” guide! We are starting things with a bang by focusing on THE most important aspect of all Man Caves. BEER.
That’s right folks today we will be looking at Beer Fridges and Kegerators, the chilly appliance which lays the foundations in which all Man Caves are built on. It’s essential that you pick the most appropriate cooler, taking into account it’s looks, price and most importantly, CAPACITY. We have done the hard work of trawling through the endless Amazon pages to round up the 10 best beer fridges that your hard earned money can buy.
Without further ado…
We might as well kick things off by starting at the top, with the SCFU1330FROST by Summit. For those of you are after the best of the best, this bad boy has everything. A fully lit interior, heated glass providing maximum eye2beer visibility and a huge beer can capacity. Install this in your Man Cave and watch the envious looks on your pal’s faces when they next come over to watch the game.
The Black Beast
This slick beast looks like a transformer ready to spring into action and pump beer directly down your throat. It’s actually a wine cooler, which might make it easier to convince the wife to let you buy it. Little does she know that it has fully adjustable shelving so you can cram it full of tinnys!
The All Rounder
The Nostalgia KRS-2100 Keg-O-Rator, not only does it sound completely bad ass but it’s also a great value and highly reviewed keg dispenser. It accommodates one pony sized keg or two 5 gallon kegs, and keeps beer carbonated for weeks. The perfect edition to your Man Cave Arsenal, and did we mention it’s great value?
“Overall, I think you will be very happy with this unit. It’s one of the cheapest ones you’ll find on the internet, so as long as you take your time setting it up and do your research on this unit to find out its quirks, you will be happily pouring fresh, draft beer in no time!” – Amazon Review
We understand that you might not be able to drop a few hundred bucks onto a beer fridge, so we have found the best selling budget beer fridge. It might not be the best looking but it’s certainly affordable, with nearly 200 reviews and a 4 star rating. It can hold up to six 12 ounce cans.
“All around – extremely practical, versatile, very portable, simple, affordable, and a mood lifter to boot.
I’m sure appreciating it!” – Amazon Review
The Luck Of The Irish
Ahhh de auld Oirish sure nu ‘oy ter draink! That’s “The old Irish sure know how to drink” for those who need to polish up on their accents. If you have a bit of Irish in you why not grab yourself this Guinness branded kegerator, able to pour the perfect Guinness pint. If the old black gets a bit heavy for you it also takes regular beer, but the head will have slightly tighter bubbles.
The Annoyingly Popular One
The NewAir AW181E is actually the most highly rated beer fridge on amazon. Again, it’s a wine cooler but whatever, it will still take a shed load of cans with a bit of persuasion. It has nifty digital temperature control, interior LED lights and is even eco friendly! Win/Win really.
“I shopped high and low for the right refrigerator, reading all reviews available and even consulting with friends who own one. I settled on the New Air model because it seemed to me it fulfilled all my requirements: good quality, right size, good looking and great value.” – Amazon Review
The Small But Perfectly Formed
This EdgeStar Deluxe Mini Kegerator is ideal solution if you are working on a small scale. It accepts 5 litre Heineken (or any of that size) draft kegs and has tonnes of positive reviews on Amazon. This clever little guy cools your beer as well as pouring the perfect point. Nice.
“I bought this mini kegerator for my husband for christmas and he LOVES it!!!!! He really isn’t a heiniken drinker but he loved the kegerator soooo much that he is now.” – Amazon Review
The Office Swifty
You know how it is, sometimes in the office you can have “one of those days”. Everything is going wrong, you have a banging headache and you just want to go home and drink and ice cold beer. Gentleman, we have found the perfect solution… the USB powered beer fridge! Holding just a single beer, it will soon become part of your everyday working life as you sneak off to the toilet to neck a can, giving you enough of a boost to see through the rest of the day.
“This thing is great for a mere $20, it is designed to do what all usb gadgets in this feild do, keep a cold drink cold, not cool down an already warm drink.” – Amazon Review
The Stack Em High
Believe it or not this rather compact little fellow can hold 117 beer cans! Boasting blue interior LEDs (they keep the beer cooler! It’s the truth…), five chromed removable shelves and mechanical temperature control, this is the best choice if you are going for sheer quantity.
“The unit comes with a nice stainless steel doorframe and handle and looks like it costs a lot more than it does. In fact, it is less than a third of what we paid for our older beverage display counter of the same size. Decent price, excellent product that works as hoped.” – Amazon Review
