This post is my sixth effort for the ReviewMe service which I have signed up A Good Beer Blog for and through which good folks like they of the Kegerator forward some funds for a review of their beer-related web-based business.
I have to admit from the start that I have never bought a keg of beer. I have been offered some in exchange for ads but I am more of a single beer to review kind of guy. But let's not kid ourselves - people like kegs. And people like to have a cold beer. So what better idea than a thing that cools your keg of beer? None. No idea in the history of mankind is actually better. Except maybe beer itself.
Kegotator draft dispensers are part of MicroMatic product line, which offers a large range of beer equipment. I have grabbed one photo above from their website to illustrate how these Kegerators work. Basically, it's a cube fridge that has a tap on top, solidly made with lots of shiny steel, into which kegs of various sizes fit and out of which beer flows. They range in prince from $495 to just under $1,500 and some seem to have wheels, meaning you could actually shout "ROLL THE KEG OVER HERE, LARRY!" if you were drinking with a guy called Larry on a relatively level surface area with no obstacles in the way. I particularly like the Beverage-Air Kegerator with the Club Top ($1,320) a cooler with a slide-top opens for easy access to chilled glasses, cans, or bottles. And I have homebrewed and I will homebrew again and maybe one day this will be part of my set up. One of the smaller models in the rec room or cottage pouring my ale would be pretty neato.
So all-in-all a very informative site with plenty of good explanations and a reasonably clear web-basket process for making a purchase. One of the best ReviewMe sites I have been asked to take a look at so far.
