For the love of beer!

Written by Denis Trotman

There’s nothing better after mowing the lawn on a Saturday afternoon than enjoying a good refreshing beer.

Typically, you might go to the fridge and grab a bottle or can of your favourite ale.
But why not pour a frosty beer from the tap?

It’s not as hard as you might think. There’s a few ways this can be achieved with full and complete readyto- go set ups ranging from $700.00 to $2,000.00.

A cheaper alternative can be to purchase a secondhand fridge and retro fit the required equipment to
it. With a bit more effort and an aesthetic look an old fridge can be a talking point on any backyard patio.

We purchased a second-hand fridge on marketplace for $100.00. With a quick sand and a lick of paint it looks great. Reinforcing the bottom shelf is important as kegs can be heavy.
The local home brew shop can help out with supplying the right accessories to get you pouring –
parts listed below.

Two holes are required. One for the tap and the other for the beer gas line. Other than that it’s tools down and bottoms up!
