[Top 10] Best Mini Fridge For Beer

Best Mini Fridge For Beer

Do you often find that there is no room left in your refrigerator to keep your 6-pack of beer cool?

Or have you got a man-cave or games room that would be improved with a readily- availably supply of cold beverages?

If so, then now is the time to look for a secondary fridge. As few of us have kitchens big enough to hold 2 full-size fridges then you could consider a mini one. Compact enough to tuck away in a corner, or smart enough to build in beneath a counter.

Most are perfect for not only keeping beer cold, but wine chilled, and water and soda cool enough to rehydrate everyone when the sun is out.

By reading our reviews of the best mini fridge for beer, we are sure that you will make the most informed buying decision.

10 Best Mini Fridge For Beer

1. Danby 120 Can Beverage Center

What a great looking mini fridge Danby has designed, tall and sleek with a classic black finish.

It is large enough to hold a huge 120 cans, that should keep enough beer cold for the biggest backyard cookout!

The thermostat is easily controlled, just set it and walk away.

The blue glow from the LED light looks attractive each time you open the door. You can flick a switch and have the light on at all times if you prefer. This looks really effective when it’s dark.

The door can be hung left or right-sided, particularly useful if it is to be used in a confined space.

The handle is hidden in the door frame, and, wait for it, it has a lock and key! Perfect for keeping children away from alcohol and adults who may want to steal a beer will be deterred!

This fridge comes with 3 wire shelves that can be adjusted depending on the size of the bottles or cans that you store in it.

2. RCA IGLOO Mini Refrigerator

If you’re looking for a more traditional fridge, just smaller, this must be worthy of consideration.

The Igloo may well be the best beer bottle cooler as it also has an integrated freezer. Perfect for those ice cubes to pop into cocktails!

If space is at a premium and you need more than a beverage cooler, you need something to keep your food chilled too, this will work.

It looks like a regular refrigerator but comes in a variety of cool colors.

It is quiet enough to have in a student’s dorm room or in the corner of an office to keep a few drinks and lunch boxes cool. It can be consider as mini fridge for dorm.

The tempered glass shelves can be moved to different heights and are also very easy to clean.

The compressor will keep the contents at an even temperature, regardless of how hot it gets outside.

We love this little fridge with its compartment for a 2 liter and designated can holder.

If you choose to use it just as a beer fridge, 40 or 50 cans will fit in with ease.

NewAir has designed a mini-fridge that not only looks great but has a serious amount of storage space for something that takes up so little room.

It runs quietly enough to sit in your tv room or if you’re lucky enough to have a man cave, it would look amazing in there. Particularly if it was full to capacity with up to 126 cans of ice-cold beer!

If you prefer to drink beer, or any other beverage, from bottles, then the 5 metal racks can be moved around until you can comfortably store 48, 12oz bottles. Upright too, not lying down.

There is also a quirky little storage space at the bottom that holds odd-size bottles and cartons.

The huge temperature range also means that your cooler is perfect for keeping wine at its ideal temperature. White wine is best served at 44°F- 55°F while red reaches its optimum between 62°F- 68°F.

This fridge has a range of lovely cold 34°F through to an ambient 64°F. There are 7 available thermostat settings.

The blue led interior light illuminates the fridge contents in the evening, no need to open the door to see what drinks you have in.

Again, this matt black compact fridge is small but perfectly proportioned.

It is a stand-alone mini-fridge that would look perfect on a countertop or in office space.

The back of the fridge is flat, no mechanics are sticking out which means it will fit snugly wherever you choose to put it.

Inside there is the LED interior light and Danby’s CanStor dispenser, a great space-saving storage device.

The powerful compressor runs so quietly, it is easy to forget that the fridge is in the room. The convection fan that sits inside is what helps maintain a consistent temperature.

The digital display is a classy touch and can easily be altered to suit your needs.

We love the chrome shelves, they add a nice finishing touch. Each one can be moved to allow for varying size storage.

Overall, this is a very impressive drinks cooler, it looks fantastic and works beautifully. Whether it is free-standing or beneath a counter, it will look impressive and you will be the envy of all of your neighbors!

6. NewAir AB-850 Beverage Refrigerator

If you have less space or less need for 120 or more cans to be kept cool then take a look at this. It is a more compact, smaller capacity mini-fridge for beer yet with the same hi-spec as its counterparts.

Having the same great temperature range of 34°F- 64°F, grabbing a cold one will be exactly that. Cold, very cold!

Even though it is more compact, there are still 5 chrome racks which can be slotted in and out as you need them. Wine bottles fit in with ease as do larger water bottles. A case of 40, 16oz cans will comfortably cool in this fridge, there will even be room for a can or 2 of premixed gin and tonic for your partner!

This mini-fridge works well freestanding and can be moved from indoors to outdoors whenever it’s needed. It would be a brilliant addition to any games room and given a large enough ventilation gap, could even be built-in.

This is a great mini-fridge at a very competitive price. Simply plug it in, load it up and your soda, beer or wine will soon be cooled to perfection.
