One of the most effective ways for serving beer is to use a kegerator. Most of the time, it’s hard to tell the difference between a kegerator and a regular freestanding refrigerator, except for the fact that the former holds kegs of beer and has a beer tap attached to the top.
Many models are suitable for use both commercially and at home. By way of example, the beverage air bm23 fits this criteria exceptionally well, with its 1/2-keg size capacity. This particular kegerator is extremely strong and sturdy. The main walls have been insulated with a very energy-efficient and hard material called polyurethane for increased strength.
In addition, each unit is constructed of stainless steel, and has a reinforced stainless steel floor to hold the keg.
What’s more, the bm23 kegerator is a highly effective cooler, using forced air cooling to regulate temperature. As a result, the internal environment is kept very consistently between thirty-three and thirty-eight Fahrenheit. Likewise, the self-closing doors help retain the cool air inside the kegerator where it belongs. As a bonus, the doors are fitted with key locks to keep the beer safe and away from prying hands.
Of course, in a busy bar environment it’s crucial that kegs can be replaced quickly and easily. For this reason, the bm23 from Beverage Air is mounted on 4 swivel casters for easy mobility. The fact that the drip tray can be removed makes for simplified cleaning and maintenance too.
These days almost all kegerators have a beer tap and beer tower stationed on top of the main refrigerator. It’s the same setup for the Beverage Air bm23 too. In this manner, the beer is transported directly from the keg to the glass, helping to prolong the overall life of the beer that is stored. Compared to serving cans or bottles, a kegerator is far quicker and there’s less mess and tidying up to do, so it’s well worth looking into if you enjoy the occasional beer or sell beer commercially.
