Hi, and welcome to beerkeezer.com!  If you landed on this page on purpose then you are also a fan of or in the beginning stages of building yourself a keezer.

First, let me tell you, having a keezer or kegerator in your home is one of the best investments for yourself you can do.  If you’re a fan of craft beer you understand that it is best served cold and from a tapped.  And your investment will save you dollars over time, that is a fact!

About Me and Beer Keezers

A little bit about me, my name is Bob Rock, and I am formally from Wisconsin.  When I say that some of you will understand, this is the land of beer.  Miller, Pabst, and other giants once ruled.

I met my wife in 2014 and we married and I since relocated to Minnesota, which is arguably the land of 10,000 lakes and beers!

But before marriage, I have always loved the idea of making your own beer.

Brewing my own beer

To back up to almost 20 years ago, when I brewed my first batch of beer.  I was in love with this, I made my own beer!  What a huge skill to have. If for some reason I got trapped on an island with a few friends, I would probably become the leader of the tribe based on being able to brew.

But besides all that, brewing beer was amazing but the one downfall was the bottling process.

That’s when I thought about kegging the beer.  You cut down the time and clean-up tremendously.

Keg it and then what?

Since I live in the North and its cold 9 months out of the year, I figured I would be able to leave the keg outside and grab a beer whenever I liked.  And this is when I learned my second lesson on kegging your beer.

You need to invest in the proper equipment.  And so researching and thinking about how a poor dude in an apartment can brew beer, keg it, and keep it cold to drink I came across a DIY plan.

Can you convert your old dorm fridge into a kegerator?

Here is the deal, you totally can convert your old fridge to become a kegerator, if you do it right and carefully.  My first time doing it, messed up and bent the cooling element which turns out to be the shelf in the unit.  Now I have a broken fridge and no cold beer.

At this point, I realize I need to come up with another plan.  The fridge was free and would have been ideal for my situation, but that failed.

I visit my local beer supply company and start chatting with them about everything I have gone through and what I should do now.

That’s when I was introduced to the term “keezer“.

What is a keezer?

It is two things formed into one, a kegerator and a chest freezer make up the word keezer.

And once I saw how easy it was to do, I went out and bought a brand new chest freezer.  I took this thing into my apartment and built the lid, glued it on and drilled some holes!

It was basic but brilliant, I have tap beer in my apartment!

Keezers have become a thing of their own, like brewing beer, the craftsmanship that gets put into some of the keezers I’ve seen is an art form.  I hope this website influences you to build your own.
