From The Tap Is Always Better!
A mini kegerator is similar in a lot of respects to the BeerTender in as much as it uses 5 L kegs as its beer source. These machines are generally larger though and have the ability to handle kegs other than Heineken and Newcastle as part of their original set up or as an accessory add-on. This is possible because these machines utilize compact CO2 cylinders to keep non-pressurize kegs pressurized.
We will be looking at two models of mini kegerators on this page. The first will be the Avanti Party Pub and the other will be the EdgeStarMini Beer Refrigerator. Both of these machines are stylish and can be placed on a kitchen countertop, but if you’re short on counter space as it is you may want to consider other locations. Let’s take a look at the rest of the features on these two machines shall we.
The Avanti 1.7 Cubic Foot Mini
The Avanti machine is not only capable of providing you draught beer at home it’s also capable of keeping a second keg chilled so you always have a spare.
