Commercial beer coolers, otherwise known as draft beer dispensers or kegerators, are refrigerated units set up behind the bar for cooling and dispensing beers. By keeping your beers at the ideal temperature, you can always be confident that every pint you serve your guests will taste nothing short of amazing. You can use a draft beer cooler in your bar, restaurant, food truck, or pub to deliver fresh draft beer to your customers in seconds.
Commercial beer cooler comes with couplers that use pressurized gas, which is often nitrogen, CO2 or regular air, to push the beer out of the keg. Most units hold between one (1) and five (5) half-barrel kegs. Beer dispensers will typically have one to four refrigerated cabinets for separate storage of the kegs.
Most of the time, the storage sections can accommodate the same size of kegs, but there are beer dispensers that accept non-standard sizes. Don't forget to check the width of the beer dispenser to make sure you can fit the beer brands you plan to serve.
The beer towers in which you can dispense the beer may have single or double faucets to support the pace and demand of your operation. The number of towers and the faucets will let you know how much product you serve. Single-faucet beer coolers typically have casters, so you can basically create a portable bar out of it.
Most beer dispensers feature a heavy-duty stainless steel top to provide a workspace that is not only sturdy but also easy to keep clean especially in between orders or shifts. Features like self-closing doors and extra storage capacity also further your ability to streamline your operation and maximize the footprint. There are beer coolers that can also be used to store, chill, and dispense other beverages like wine, coffee, and other nonalcoholic beverages, making them highly versatile as well.
Many of our beer coolers are also designed to meet Energy Star standards to help lower your energy consumption and environmental footprint while maintaining high-quality performance.
When it comes to beer dispensers, commercial environments require heavy-duty components and parts that are easy to clean and replace. This saves you from spending an inordinate amount of time cleaning the unit so your focus stays on serving customers with delicious beer.
Commercial applications also mean having the option to have several varieties of beer on draft. For small bars, food trucks, and home brewers, a half-barrel draft beer cooler may be the smarter choice. For bustling bars and restaurants, larger styles that can hold as many as five half-barrels at a time will serve you better. These beer dispensers will also support much larger operations that offer a bigger variety of beers on draft at any given time.
