SoundOff – Kegerators

Kegerators
October 2013

 

The holidays are right around the corner which means playing host to a variety of holiday parties and gatherings. A kegerator is a great and convenient way to serve cold, refreshing beer to your customers. Before making this exciting purchase, there are some important things to consider. How much beer will be consumed on a daily basis? How many varieties of beer do you want to have on tap? What style do you prefer? Will the kegerator be placed inside or outside?
Kegerators range in size from containing one standard keg up to eight or more slim-barrel kegs. It’s important to calculate the average daily beer consumption in order to know which size will best fit your needs.
You will also need to choose between a stainless-steel exterior or a black-vinyl exterior. Additionally, there is the option of a standard top or a club-top. A club-top includes a sliding door and glass rail.
Finally, if the kegerator will be located outside, it must be sealed on the back. Also make sure to look for kegerators that are Energy Star compliant which will be an excellent money saver in the long run.

A Feast to Remember!
So your guests remember the food not the illness….

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and with large meals and many guests, the meal often turns to a buffet. When food is out on display for self-serving, it is the responsibility of both the guest and the host/restaurant to follow the food safety tips.

For the guest:

  • Wash up! Clean hands are the first step in a safe and healthy food environment.
  • Use a clean plate for every trip to the buffet. This will prevent germs from being transferred between guests.
  • If you are at a buffet and notice someone re-using a dirty plate, inform the manager. Some people may not have seen the sign requiring a fresh plate for each trip.
  • Respect the sneeze guard! If there is one available, serve yourself with your hands and keep your eyes, nose and mouth above the glass barrier.

For the restaurant/server:

  • Wash your hands before preparing food.
  • Keep the kitchen, dishes and utensils clean and always serve food on clean plates.
  • Cook food thoroughly – Fresh and frozen raw meat, poultry and fish should be cooked hot enough to kill the bacteria, parasites and viruses that may be in the product. The temperatures shown below are recommended for home preparation of food. Always use a meat thermometer to check temperatures.
  • Hot foods hot, cold foods cold!
  • Hot foods should be held at 140 degrees or warmer
  • Cold foods should be held at 40 degrees or coolerTwo Hour Rule! Food should not be at room temperature for more than 2 hours. Replace empty dishes – do not refill them.

There you have it folks – not the most exciting subject, but one of the most important! Food safety tips are always important and especially this time of year when buffets are more prevalent.

Enjoy the holiday season – happy feasting!

Beverage Air Direct Draw Systems – Kegerators: Are You Ready for Some Football?

Wednesday, September 14th, 2011

We can finally breathe a sigh of relief. Football season is underway, and if your bar or restaurant has a television set — chances are — customers will be lining up to watch gridiron battles and root for their favorite teams with an ice cold brew in hand. Are you prepared? Or, will you be relying on bags of ice the size of a small glacier and soggy, discolored labels to ensure customers enjoy a frosty beer? If that sounds like your establishment — have no fear — we carry restaurant equipment ideal for keeping your libations at chilly temperatures.

Direct Draw Systems, otherwise known as Kegerators, are wonderful devices for doling out pint after tasty pint, just as patrons scream and cheer for their beloved teams. If you have yet to create your fantasy restaurant beer-chilling lineup in time for football season, the Beverage-Air Direct Draw Systems: Kegerator BM23-B is a fabulous choice. At Short Order, we gave this “Barmobile Beer Dispenser” a 5-Star rating and our Editors Choice selection. But, don’t just take our word for it. Jane Gruschow from Canadaigua, New York, says of her BM23, “Kegerator is working fantastic!!! No foam issues and beer is always cold!” Pat Elder from Victoria, Texas says, “AWESOME!!!! What else can I say…Ice cold beer, perfect head of foam… Don’t waste your money on cheaper units that have to be retrofitted in order to reduce foam and keep (the) tower cold, this one does it all.”

The BM23-B is also incredibly durable. In fact, its standard construction features wear resistant, black vinyl on steel exteriors, heavy-duty stainless steel top, galvanized steel interiors and reinforced stainless steel floors and doorsill. Your kegerator could take a beating from a linebacker and you wouldn’t have to worry about putting the equipment on injured reserve. The three-inch insulated tower is designed to have a “continuous source of cold air channeled into it to keep beer at its coldest, best quality when dispensed.”

With Direct Draw Systems from Short Order, you’ll be well on your way to a winning season. You can also stock your equipment team with even more champion players by adding Glass Chillers to your bar or restaurant. That means come game time, no matter how many thirsty patrons you serve, no one will have to dread warm beer.

Beverage-Air Refrigerators: Chilling Out

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011

Beverage-Air refrigerators come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, and are the perfect pieces of restaurant equipment needed to keep your food fresh and cool.  Whether you’re trying to chill milk for youngsters to grow strong bones with, keep all the fixings for a sandwich crisp and organized, make sure that frosty mug of beer stays frosty, or simply freeze or refrigerate anywhere from a modest to a massive amount of food and/or beverage, Beverage-Air refrigerators are guaranteed to get the job done.

After all, we’re talking about one of the industry leaders of refrigeration and, er, freezeration? products.  Beverage-Air refrigerators have a justly-deserved reputation for being efficient, well-made, and incredibly effective.

Beverage-Air Kegerators

Beverage-Air kegerators are excellent examples of Beverage-Air refrigerators doing a specialized task perfectly.  Sure, you could throw a keg in a refrigerator and call it a day, but that would be an incredibly inefficient use of resources and space, and you’d probably make yourself nuts drilling holes through those excellently manufactured refrigerator walls to run the tubing.  Why not just call it a day and opt for Beverage-Air kegerators?  They’re durable, reliable, easy on the eyes, and do what they’re designed to do virtually flawlessly.  These are a must for any restaurant or bar accustomed to giving discerning customers near-brain freezes with crisp, refreshing mugs of beer.

Beverage-Air Refrigerators

Beverage-Air Refrigerators, as previously alluded to, make a host of chilling and freezing products.  Obviously, regular old refrigerators are part of their trade, but even these come in a dazzling array of styles, so you can find exactly the solution your restaurant needs.  The Beverage-Air Display Refrigerator CRG24-1, for example, is an excellent way of providing customers with an opportunity to grab the beverage they need and go.  It’s a great addition to diners or fast casual establishments. For an under-the-counter model, check out the Beverage-Air Undercounter Refrigerator UCR60A, which features two doors for easy access, as well as a sturdy, stainless steel exterior.

Beverage Air Kegerators

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010

Beverage Air kegerators might just be the standard-bearers of the keg refrigeration world.  (We were tempted to do a play on words involving “standard-beerers,” but thought better of it.  Didn’t want to tickle too many punny bones.)  Just like any Beverage Air product, Beverage Air kegerators are high performing, sturdy products that will operate efficiently for years to come.  There’s a lot to like about excellent products like the Beverage-Air Direct Draw Systems: Kegerator BM23-B or the Beverage-Air Direct Draw Systems: Kegerator DD48Y-1-B, both of which will allow you to draw perfectly chilled beer for your customers.  Crisp, cool, refreshing perfection.

Of course, kegerators are not for every restaurant, especially if you don’t serve beer and you dispense your soft drinks using a traditional soda fountain and not using Cornelius kegs for underground craft sodas.  If that’s the case, don’t fret—we have a host of other products that can serve your needs.  Beverage Air makes refrigerators and freezers, both for kitchen use and for display and self-service, that are every bit as good as their highly regarded kegerators; if anything, that’s more what they’re known for.  Manitowoc ice machines provide an excellent way to cool down everything that isn’t going to be kept in a fridge.

Looking for ways to heat things up instead of for ways to cool things down?  (You often need implements to do both in a restaurant, after all.)  We’ve got an extensive “range” (groan) of Vulcan ranges, Frymaster fryers, and the like, all of which can heat your food to deliciously toasty perfection.

We’ll get down to the thrust of the matter: No matter what you’re looking for, whether that’s a Beverage Air kegerator or a different piece of restaurant equipment, know that we’ll have something designed to suit your needs, and it’s all backed with our nifty low price guarantee.

Beverage-Air Refrigerator CRG24-1

This Beverage-Air refrigerator is heavy-duty and earth-friendly, and the door is self-closing. This piece of restaurant equipment boasts a five-star rating and an Editor’s Choice rating from ShortOrder.com.

Beverage-Air Worktop Refrigerators

Beverage-Air Kegerators

Monday, July 27th, 2009

Beverage-Air kegerators, also called draft beer coolers, are ultra sleek — and they’re the perfect way to keep your keg chilled and maintained for typically up to a couple of months. Since beer can be very sensitive to temperature, Beverage-Air kegerators keep it cool at the temperature it needs to be in order to maintain the quality in taste.

For restaurants and bars, Beverage-Air kegerators can be quite useful. Not only do they keep the beer chilled to an ideal temperature, but they make it easy to serve beer since they have a faucet. With the outstanding quality of Beverage-Air, kegerators made by this company are known for being reliable and durable. There are several different kinds of Beverage-Air kegerators offered at ShortOrder.com. So depending on your needs, you’re likely to find something that will work well in your restaurant or bar.

Something that’s great about Beverage-Air kegerators is that they come complete with interior lighting, durable exteriors, self-closing doors with locks. Many of these units offered at ShortOrder.com are highly rated, with Editor’s Choice ratings and five-star ratings. One of those is the Beverage-Air DD58-1-B Kegerator. This draft beer cooler is one of our top sellers.

Beverage-Air Kegerators for Your Home

If you think the idea of having the ability to serve draft beer in your own home sounds like the best thing ever, you’re not alone. Buying Beverage-Air kegerators or draft beer coolers for the home is something that’s getting more and more popular. Having a kegerator is perfect for entertaining. It can also cut way down on bottle and can trash. Plus, buying beer in kegs can usually be a bit cheaper than buying the same amount in bottle or can form. The classy, clean look of a Beverage-Air kegerator is simply unbeatable, though.

More Than Beverage-Air Kegerators

You’ll find more than Beverage-Air kegerators here at ShortOrder.com. We have an impressive selection of restaurant equipment. Don’t miss Vulcan ranges, Manitowoc ice machines and more.
