Beer Keg Chiller
Enjoy all of your spring and summer festivities with a Beer Keg Chiller from North Slope Chillers
Spring fever is a real thing. As the sun brings out the green in the grass and the tulips from the ground, it also brings out an anticipation and excitement in us to get outside and enjoy some vitamin D. Spring Break, Easter break, and the weekend all call for a picnic, a barbecue, or a good old fashioned party in the backyard. Getting outside with food and drink requires some planning, and when beer is one of the libations–you need to know how to keep a keg cold outside.
Portable Beer Chilling
A Kegerator is a specially adapted, keg sized refrigerator and beer dispenser. These refrigeration and beer dispenser units work well behind a bar where you are close to an electrical outlet. Kegerators are fine for fixed locations with power, but how do you chill beer for outside parties and catering events? Can you imagine trying to take that refrigeration on the go? For outdoor events, it would be a lot easier to leave the extension cords and generators at home.
Some beer drinkers try and use chilling sticks that are immersed inside a bottle of beer. Chiller sticks may work for a couple of people enjoying a drink outside. However, what do you do for gatherings where a few bottles of beer won’t be enough?
Keg Chiller Wraps
There are many simple ways to keep a keg cold in the great outdoors. We would like to recommend a means for achieving the perfect chill that you can use over and over with no mess or stress. Even on the hottest summer days, the North Slope Chillers’ portable keg cooler can keep a keg cold outside (50°F) for up to 12 hours without ever having to change the ice packs. Our portable wraps easily fit around a US standard half barrel keg with a keg capacity of 15 gallons.
Keg Chiller Field Test
To prove the effectiveness of the Keg Cooler, we ran an experiment. We started with a 40° F keg of beer, wrapped our beer keg chiller around the keg, placed it inside a 95 °F environmental chamber and recorded the beer’s temperature for 24 hours. After 6 hours the beer was 43 °F and had only increased 3 degrees, and after 12 hours the temperature had only increased 10 degrees to 50 °F, which is still considered optimal temperature for drinking.
