Some people enjoy a beer now and then. Some don”t really like it all that much. Others absolutely love it.
One enthusiast, who even brews his own beer, decided he was going to make something that would allow him to enjoy a freshly tapped beer whenever he wanted. That”s right, he built his very own kegerator (a refrigerator outfitted with a beer keg). This is a beer lover”s best friend. Even if you don”t like the taste of beer, you at least have to admit that this industrial-style kegerator is pretty cool.
It all started with a regular old fridge, purchased for just $25 online.
This pressurized keg will go inside of the fridge to keep the beer flowing.
The first major step was to redo the top of the fridge, adding insulation and carving out where the valves and keg pump would be installed.
Then, it was time to start constructing the wooden top of the kegerator.
Here”s the simple but beautiful wooden top with an ornate drainage grate for any excess beer or foam.
To give the kegerator an industrial look, these pipes were used for the beer tap and decoration.
For some extra character, he stained the wooden top a couple of shades darker.
An empty beer bottle served as the handle for the keg”s tap.
The kegerator, complete with some tall pint glasses, is ready for a party
This is a great DIY project for everyday use or a big party. I certainly wouldn”t mind having one of these for when I”m feeling a little thirsty after a long day”s work.
