The foaming is just the same as any other beer you open, no big deal. Something I've done with
those swing tops before if I'm worried about pressure is to unlatch them but leave the lid

Not aware of any fridges specifically but there's always the option of a external temperature
regulator on a small chest freezer. Alternately, have you tried the t-shirt and water basin
