Default Beer Tower Cooler added!

Hey everyone we just added a new product, the beer tower cooler, for those of you who have beer towers on top of your bar or kegerator. They work great and at $39.50 will save you from pouring out a ton of foam on that first draw by keeping your beer line, taps and shanks ice cold.
Thanks as always!
Jeremy

Very cool. Next time I get some cash I'll be getting one.
Would you mind posting either here or on the site how its installed and how it works? Im curious as to what the tube is for/how it sits in the fridge/ where the fan sits.

Basically the fan portion sits down in the fridge/kegerator and the tube simply snakes up along the beer lines into the tower. You can mount the fan anywhere inside the fridge or just draw it up to the keg lid under the lines. You could probably make a super simple little mounting bracket out of just about anything for a clean install look. The fan blows cold air up the tube into the tower. Simple as that. Pretty genious if you ask me!

looks great. I'd probably mount it somehow using the screws that already run through my fridge for the tower mount. and cut the tube to about a foot. My fridge has like zero spare room so this is just the ticket.

Thanks Jeremy, this price is awesome. This fall I'll start my keezer conversion and this is on the list of "must haves".

Is the fan speed variable or does the power supply maybe have an off/on switch? It would be nice to be able to control either the speed or the off/on.

The fan is not variable nor is there an on/off switch. The cord can be unplugged from the fan but you would have to lift the lid of your kegerator for that. One suggestion might be to simply wire an off off lamp type swith into the cord where you could reach it. I do think for optimal results though you would want the fan running continously in order to keep your lines cold to keep the foam down.

Thanks for the info! I've got a small hamster wheel blower fan from an old computer I was going to try and rig to do this but so far all I've accomplished is destroying a couple old cellphone chargers... I should probably order one of these while my heart is still beating normally.
