Metal Projects - Industrial Kegerator

Industrial Kegerator

Industrial Kegerator #1

This project was a bit of an impulse. Before I gave this late 1970s model fridge a serious face lift, I had already converted it into a kegerator with the help of a conversion kit similar to one of These Kits. The first round of modifications were simple and didn't change the appearance of the fridge aside from having two tap handles sticking out of the front of the door.

Later, I added the drip pan and moved the CO2 tank to the outside of the fridge to gain a little more room inside. Once all of this was completed, the only additional changes to it's appearance were a few dozen stickers on it to cover up the blemishes.

One Friday morning I got a call from a friend of mine who handles the beer and wine purchasing for the restaurants Fielding's Wood Grill and Fielding's Local. He asked me if he could borrow it for a special event they were holding for the Houston Beer Week, which started the following Monday. I told him "Yes, but I'm going to have to do something about the appearance." It was unsightly for such a nice public display and some of the stickers weren't exactly "family oriented" if you know what I mean.

That Friday night I started working on it. Sunday night, I delivered it. Needless to say, I didn't sleep much that weekend. Since then, It's made several appearances around town at special events.
