Customizing a Beer Cooler to Fit Your Needs

Breweries, bars, and taprooms know the importance of temperature and that a walk-in cooler could make or break your business. Setting up a customized unit can solve many issues that will eventually arise in each bar or brewery.  

Questions Regarding Your Walk-in Cooler Needs

Temperature control, efficient operation, reliability, and storage space are all important aspects when considering purchasing a walk-in unit. However, there are also several features and other factors to consider when researching the purchase of your next walk-in cooler. 

  1. What does your establishment need in a walk-in cooler? 
  2. Will you need multiple chambers such as dry storage space or a freezer compartment? 
  3. Where will the unit be placed, inside or outside your establishment? (Through-wall or freestanding.) 
  4. What will you be storing in the unit? (Kegs of beer, cases of beer or wine, food products, or other perishable items.)
  5. Will you be serving food at your establishment? 
  6. If you are storing kegs, how many do you need to fit inside?
  7. What about the floor load? If you are storing kegs that weigh 200-300lbs each, will you require an increased floor load rating? 
  8. If you are kegging and holding your own beer, what temperature range will you require? 
  9. What kind of accessories will you need? (Beer taps and tap lines, backsplash, interior shelving, temperature monitoring systems, etc.) 
  10. How much capacity will you need to host events? 
  11. Will the new unit’s energy consumption affect your bottom line? 
  12. How will the delivery and installation affect your business? Will you need to make special arrangements or hire someone to assemble it? 
  13. As a substantial investment for your organization, what kind of warranty does the manufacturer provide? 
  14. Do you need to plan for future growth? If so, what type of changes to your business do you anticipate? 

Answering these questions ahead of time will allow you to properly research the many manufacturers of walk-in coolers and narrow your list to companies that fit your specific operational needs.
