Beer is more than just a tasty, intoxicating beverage to enjoy with friends and family. It is an epicurean delight thousands of years in the making. Some of the earliest human writings were recipes for the brewing of beer.
From this early tradition, beer has evolved from a beverage quaffed at the local tavern or guzzled in front of TV sports to a hobby that can go toe-to-toe with wine any day of the week. Many beer lovers even take on the fun, affordable challenge of brewing beer at home, making their own little mark on those thousands of years of tradition.
If you love clinking a glass of suds or downing a tasty bottle with friends and family, whether over a hearty grilled dinner, around a card table at poker night, in front of the big screen TV at the Super Bowl, or to take the edge off the heat at a festive BBQ, it’s high time you added a beer fridge to your collection of home appliances.
Beer has its own quirks and personality. It’s at its best when stored under precise, specific conditions. It won’t achieve its fullest expression when stored next to the lettuce and the milk. Furthermore, you might not have enough room in your main refrigerator to store all the beer you need for a party, especially a dinner party or BBQ where you might have already stocked up on other ingredients.
A beer fridge will answer your needs and is surprisingly affordable. However much space you have, you can usually find a beer fridge to fit it. Additionally, modern beer fridges come with an attractive collection of features, with form and function to add class to any decor scheme. Here are our picks for the 15 best beer fridges for your home bar in 2023.

How to Choose the Right Beer Fridge for You
It isn’t hard to find the right beer fridge for you. What may be hard is picking it from the crowd. The beer fridge market suffers, if you can put it that way, from too many options, as well as a large degree of variance in quality. A beer fridge is a fairly significant investment. It might take a while to figure out you picked the wrong one—long enough for a return policy or warranty to expire. Here are nine things to look for when trying to decide which beer fridge is right for you.
You might be tempted by ultra-low minimum temperatures like 34 or 32 degrees Fahrenheit, but this is actually overkilling for a beer fridge. Remember, 32 degrees Fahrenheit is the freezing point of water, and you don’t want your beer to get that cold or it could rupture the case.
Most beer never needs to get below 44 degrees Fahrenheit. 42-48 degrees is the sweet spot for most lagers, 44-52 degrees for most ales. If you keep your beer fridge between 44 and 48 degrees Fahrenheit, you should be happy with the results.
Take note of the cooling system. Compressors with fan circulation tend to cool a beer fridge more evenly than cooling plate technology.
2. Interior Space
How much beer you need to keep on hand will dictate how much interior space your beer fridge needs. If you keep beer just for yourself or small groups, a 1.6-2.0 cubic foot interior could be plenty. If you want to chill beer for medium to large parties, consider a beer fridge of 3.6 cubic feet, 4.0 cubic feet, or even larger. You usually don’t need a freezer to chill beer, but a beer fridge with freezer space could be used to super-chill vodka or frost beer steins.
3. Exterior Space
Take into account where you’re putting your beer fridge. If you want it between furniture, under a counter, or added to your kitchen or bar as a built-in, make sure to carefully measure the space and compare it to the product dimensions on the product listing. You can find a larger-capacity beer fridge to fit into a relatively tight space with careful measuring. If you need the door to open in a certain direction, consider a beer fridge with a reversible door.
4. Glass Door—Yea or Nay?
Many beer-lovers enjoy showing off their collection. A glass fridge door is perfect for displaying the goods, but keep in mind that beer can be damaged by UV rays. That’s why it is stored in translucent bottles. Double-paned, polarized glass doors add extra protection to your beer. Alternately, you might consider a solid door to offer maximal protection to your prized beverages.
One thing beer-lovers tend to forget when choosing a beer fridge is noise. All refrigerator compressors make noise when they run, some more than others. At a rowdy sports night, poker night, or BBQ that may not matter, but if you intend to keep your beer fridge in your bedroom or studio apartment, keep in mind your ability to sleep with the white noise. A loud compressor may also spoil the ambiance of an event focused around silence, quiet music, spoken word, etc. If quiet is of the essence, look for a beer fridge with a vibration-free compressor and a low tested decibel level of 35 or lower.
A good interior light helps you see what beer you are grabbing, whether the door is open or closed. However, white light can affect the potency of beer, so look for a beer fridge that offers a more protective blue light.
If you need the room to be dark, for sleep or film screening, or any other need, a beer fridge with a clear door and an interior light may prove to be a distraction unless you can turn the light off. Look for a beer fridge with an adjustable light and/or a solid door if you foresee ambient lighting as an issue.
7. Controls and Monitors
Today’s beer fridges often come equipped with modern controls, including touchpad temperature and lighting controls, as well as digital monitors for the temperature and other parameters. More basic beer fridges may be subject to temperature adjustment by a hand-turned dial, often a less precise way of calibrating the temperature of your beer fridge. If you want a precise interior temperature, look for a beer fridge that can be calibrated to the right chill down to the degree.
8. Energy Consumption
Beer fridges are not the energy hogs that full-sized fridges are, but they are no slouches either. Your average beer fridge will draw anywhere from 50W to 150W or more, at 115V or more. Make sure you have a powerful-enough, grounded, and protected outlet to plug your beer fridge into, or else you risk blowing a circuit and allowing your beer to get warm.
If living green is one of your priorities, look for an energy-efficient beer fridge. Appliances like fridges may be given a green rating from authorities like Energy Star.
9. Guarantee or Warranty
While your beer fridge may be smaller than your kitchen fridge, the technology at work is similar. Kitchen fridges come with warranties and service contracts; you might expect their smaller beer-fridge counterparts to carry similar warranties.
Unfortunately, many beer fridges do not have the kind of full-range protection of a household refrigerator. You may have to make do with a 1-year “worry-free” service warranty. If you find a beer fridge with a longer warranty, it will probably be a more costly model. However, in some cases, you do get what you pay for. The extra cost could be justified if the beer fridge is built to last.
Many affordable beer fridges for sale online come with a 30-day satisfaction guarantee. This can offer some comfort, but it’s not as good as a manufacturer’s warranty, and really, who wants to mail a minifridge back to the retailer? Best to do your homework and get the perfect beer fridge right out of the gate.
