Barrow Breweryin Salgado makes a good Farm to Market Saison.

PintHouse Pizza Electric jellyfish is an amazing hazy IPA. In Waco, Southern Roots has several good beers, but they are a little proud of their kegs.

Rich people problems. Lol
Setting up an old fridge as a kegerator is actually pretty cheap. Keg beer over bottles & cans is a real bargain. Keg deposit might be a bit stupid.

If you don’t use nitrogen, bev gas is reasonable as are rebuilt regulators. Air line, beer line, tavern heads, a wall shank and faucet all fairly reasonable from Micromatic or ebay

Just thing how nice taking out the trash would be without bottles & cans.

I’ve had a kegerator for a few years. It is a few hundred dollars to start up, but my wife and I have really enjoyed it. The price per pint on the most of the kegs larger than a sixtel are cheaper than buying from the store.

I added a water keg this year (We drink a lot of fizzy waters) and it has cut down on our can usage and our bottle usage significantly. I’m not a big greeny, but it is nice.

Old soda water syrup canisters can be had pretty cheap and filled with anything from home brew to sangrias and run thru a keg system.

I have had limited experience with Kegerators. They are great for many places, but the big ones tend to suck getting moved into some places. A floor drain for the spill tray is the way to go. Spill trays dumping into a pail or bucket are a total mess. When the compressor goes you replacing the whole kegerator.

Beverage Air type soda merchandiser work really well. New & used one can he had, parts are available and most important they are set up for great beer temperatures.
