Kegerator - Beer Kegerator - Where to Buy Kegerator Kits - Beer Dispensers, Mini Kegs, Couplers and More!
A Kegerator is basically a draft beer dispensing device created to keep a tapped Keg of beer fresh for extended periods of time -- usually up to a couple of months.
A regular keg of beer that has been tapped with an air pump usually will not last, at best, more than two or three weeks before the beer will go flat.
Because Kegs of beer can be fairly pricey, a kegerator is the perfect way to ensure that you and your friends enjoy every last drop for months to come.
A kegerator looks exactly like a regular small refrigerators and can fit easily in most homes and behind most personal bar areas.
As a matter of fact, people often purchase used small refrigerators at garage sales or from the classified section and convert them into Kegerators with a Kegerator conversion kit at a fraction of the price of new ones.
There are other benefits to Kegerators as well. If you happen to use slim kegs or pony kegs, many kegerators can hold more than one keg of beer at a time.
