I just bought a new fridge specifically for beer. Not fermenting, just to keep my bottles cold. I found a nice one at sears, freezerless and all the shelves are space well enough that bottles will stand up on all of them. The only downside is all the shelves are the wire grate type. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on what I might put on the grate to make the bottle stand better. I don't want to have the bottles tip over especially if it's going to have a domino effect. It would have to be thin since I only have 3/4 inch spacing on a few shelves.
You can get 1/8 inch plexiglas at any home improvement store. It's easy to cut and you can sand the edges to smooth them out. I did this in my pantry to support small cans & bottles and it works fine. The bonus is that you will be able to easily remove them should you ever need to clean a shelf.

...my only concern is the air circulation in the fridge.
I have a commercial refrigerator with all glass shelves. Restricted air flow isn't that big of a deal since you're not sealing each shelf to the walls or anything.
