Default 1/2 Barrel fridge suggestions

I already have a DIY kegerator I built with all the help from the forum.But it only holds 2 cornys.Im looking for an off the shelf fridge that will hold a 1/2 barrel I can convert to a kegorator without ripping it apart.Been searching the web for days and cant find anything.Dont want a full size fridge.Any help would be GREAT!!

That's going to be a tough order, if you are looking for a 'mini' fridge. All of the ones in that size/shape that I have seen that can take a 1/2 barrel are commercial kegerators, and more expensive.

That being said, check craigslist for things like used commercial merchandizing fridges. They come in all sizes and don't usually have the compressor 'hump' taking up floor space. They are often more expensive, but if you are patient you can find them cheap. Good luck, and enjoy your beer.
