Those of us that are big beer drinkers are well aware of the problems caused by using the family’s regular fridge to keep their cans of beer.

Made from stainless steel and triple-layered glass, the Kalamera features blue LED lights that illuminate your beer store without being too bright or obtrusive.

The Kalamera is one of the best beer fridges we have found. The compressor is whisper quiet and keeps your favorite beverages between 38 and 50 degrees Fahrenheit without the constant start-and-stop noise of cheaper fridges. The Kalamera is also built with a temperature memory function should there be any power losses.

This extremely robust beer refrigerator has six sliding metal shelves, digital LED temperature control, and a handy reversible door with a solid security lock. This is particularly useful for families with kids or if the unit is used in a commercial setting.

The Kalamera weighs 105 pounds and has dimensions of 24 x 33 x 23 inches. The fridge is fitted with an embedded carbon filter which does a great job of purifying the air inside the unit. This feature is important for those using the fridge to cool bottles of wine. In this case, each shelf can comfortably fit five bottles of your favorite vino giving a total capacity of 30 bottles!

It is beautifully assembled and with its dual compressor cooler, so you can chill your beverages between 36 and 72 degrees Fahrenheit. We love that each side of the unit can be adjusted to different temperatures giving total versatility.

The NewAir AWB-360DB features French doors so, for those with kids, one half of the cooler can be used for storage of your boozy drinks while the other half can be used to keep your child-friendly beverages. Both doors are fitted with strong sturdy locks.

The NewAir comes with 4 chrome-plated beverage ranks and 5 wire wine shelves that pull out easily for convenient loading/unloading. We love the blue lighting function to illuminate the contents of your fridge during nighttime.

This gorgeous beer fridge weighs 107 pounds and has dimensions of 24 x 24 x 34 inches. A major selling point of the NewAir AWB-360DB is the separate cooling zones. This is particularly useful as different beverages should be stored at different temperatures. The double doors allow access to one side of the fridge without upsetting the temperature of the other.

The NewAir is a powerful and convenient appliance for beer, wine, and soft drink lovers everywhere!

4th Place – BLACK+DECKER BCRK17W Compact Fridge with Freezer

This compact refrigerator can hold up to six 12 oz cans of four 500ml bottles and easily makes our list of the best beer fridges on the planet booze.

The fridge’s dimensions are 11 x 7 x 11 inches and it weighs a tiny 3.1 lb. The Gourmia features a solid-state thermostatic cooling system which works great and this fridge can even be plugged into your cigarette lighter or home outlet (AC/DC transformer built-in).

The Gourmia GMF600 cools down to 32 degrees below its ambient temperature and this baby also doubles as a heating device with a maximum temperature of 150 degrees (in an ambient temperature of 75 degrees Fahrenheit). We were particularly impressed by the speed at which the fridge cools from first being turned on.

This natty cooling companion is perfect whether being used on the go, traveling by car/boat/RV or just spending the day on the beach getting slowly sloshed with your buddies!
