The kegerator has been around for a while now, and it works really well to keep beer cool and keep all its flavor. In essence, it’s simply a cooling device for kegs of beer, and by attaching beer and air lines, as well as a pressurized tank of CO2 gas, the beer can be served from the keg direct to a glass.
For example, there’s the Haier hbf05eabb, which is designed to be used both at home or on a commercial level.
This kegerator doesn’t just work with a range of different sized kegs – primarily half, mini as well as quarter-sized barrels – but you also get all the other parts you need to actually serve and dispense great tasting beer.
And just what are those parts exactly?
On top of the main kegerator cabinet, the hbf05eabb houses an impressive chrome beer mount, beer tap and drip tray too. And a wire guardrail fits neatly around the perimeter of the worktop surface, keeping glasses from spilling over the edge.
The main fridge unit itself sits on 4 rolling casters that make this keg cooler ultra easy to move around, which is especially important when it’s weighed down with a full beer keg.
By far the most essential features on the Haier hbf05eabb are these: the adjustable thermostat and automatic defrosting functions. As you may know, the flavor of a beer depends heavily on the temperature at which it is served. And it just so happens that some kegerators fall short at maintaining the right beer temperature during hotter summer months of the year.
Fortunately you won’t have this issue with this particular haier keg cooler, since you can easily switch the thermostat up or down according to your needs.
And then there’s the automatic defrosting feature too, which does all the work for you. Any ice one the compressor is automatically defrosted and evaporated during the regular on/off cycle of the compressor.
The Haier hbf05eabb keg refrigerator is extremely effective at keeping beer cool, and it looks fantastic too. So when you’re hunting for a great way to serve up flavorsome beer no matter what time of year it is, add it to your list of essentials.
