Commercial Bar Keg Coolers

A keg cooler is a necessity for any restaurant or bar serving draft beer. Keg coolers keep your beer ice cold and ready to serve, quenching your customers' thirst and keeping your bar staff happy. Party on!

What kinds of draft systems are available?

There are three types of drafts; direct draw, air-cooled, and glycol-cooled. Direct draw means the keg is kept in a cooling unit near the faucet and is ideal for catering and portable bars. Air-cooled systems rely on circulating cold air and is ideal for bars serving multiple kinds of beer. Glycol-cooled systems use an indirect cooling agent that circulates in a separate tube and is ideal for operation where the cooler is 25' or more from the bar.

Does the size of my establishment effect the size of Keg Cooler I should use?

Not necessarily. Although a larger establishment may need a larger Keg Cooler, a small bar serving a wider variety of draft beers may also need a larger unit. When purchasing a Bar Keg Cooler, it is ideal to consider space, level of business, and what is being served.
