The BeerFathers household (East) is plus one now with the latest addition to the family – the dedicated beer fridge.
That’s right, I finally had so many beers in our real fridge that my beautiful beer love wife finally said “Enough!” and I got my wish.
This bad boy is actually a converted wine cooler from Home Depot. It’s the Magic Chef 44 Bottle Dual Zone Wine Cooler (Model MCWC44DZ). The racks are removed for ideal vertical bottle storage with the exception of one rack towards the top of the bottom zone for cellaring purposes (currently cellaring a lone Trappistes Rochefort 10). The top zone is the lager and low gravity zone which is kept at 45 F and the bottom zone (the larger of the two) is the ale and high gravity zone which is kept at 50 F. No more counter resting my beers before drinking – they’re ready to go straight out of the beer fridge. We’ve stored this in the closet underneath the stairs, out of sight but not out of mind.
If you’re wondering how many beers we can fit in a 44 bottle wine cooler it’s in the neighborhood of about 70 bottles. It’s currently not at capacity. Donations are accepted.
