Glass shelves, and probably cantilever shelf supports, no way I'd take a chance with the weight. Just take out the drawers on the bottom, and as many shelves above as you need to fit the kegs sitting on the bottom of the fridge. And maybe still have a shelf above for bottles and cans.

You could also put some plywood or something underneath to help support it. Are you dead set on getting a new fridge? You may want to consider finding something on Craigslist. Especially something with wire shelves. Also, sometimes apartment complexes are refitting their units with newer appliances. I scored a fermenting fridge this way for $50.
