I've been working on finishing our basement for a while now. I've got about 2/3 of the walls up, maybe 3/4. I have a plan where I am going to put the bar and what shape and size it will be.
Recently, while sitting in the basement with my wife having a beer and surveying my work, I came across the realization that with the layout I have I might be better off building a "closet" and sliding in a beer serving fridge vs. using a chest freezer under the bar and having to worry about keg insertion and removal via either a pivoting bar top or sliding the freezer and worrying about how to deal with the tower, not to mention the discussions of premature failure due to rust and/or running them too warm.
So, I've been eyeing up those fridge-only units. Does anyone have any experience with them? I think I'd save a ton of cash on energy costs with one of them over my current serving fridge that is of the 1970's era. My thought was to build a cabinet/closet to house the fridge and then attach a cabinet door to the fridge door so it just looks like a kitchen cabinet. I'd then put the taps through the fridge/cabinet door.
