Great beer but too much noise
by:John (12-22-2015)
Comments:I would rate this beer cooler 5 stars if it wasn’t for the fan noise. This beer cooler is much better than my previous cooler. It produces a great draft of beer. It keeps the beer really cold and produces a great head of foam (not too much or too little).

The fan noise, however, is preventing us from keeping the cooler in the house. It is now located in the garage. I wish there was a way to dampen the noise or a replacement fan that didn’t make so much noise. I told my wife that if we drink enough beer we won’t notice the noise at all :)
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
Quality Unit
by:Grandpa Ron (12-08-2015)
Boring, Or.
Comments:This unit works and looks like it did when I rolled it out of F.H. Steinbart Co. store in Portland, Oregon in 1977. I guess they don't make things like they used to, this unit has never had anything go wrong with it.
It's time for me to sell it, if interested you can contact me at
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
Long Lasting
by:Bob (11-05-2015)
Santee, CA
Comments:My first Beverage-Air beer cooler lasted 29 1/2 years with very little maintenance or trouble. Hope this one is just as good. Definitely worth the money.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
Great cooler but coils do not last
by:Ron (09-15-2015)
Carson City, Nevada
Comments:Great unit when it is working. Keeps kegs at a constant temp and great pours. The problem with mine was reliability. Bought it in 2007 and a little over 2 years the evaporator coil developed a leak. Had the coil replaced by a Bev-air service shop (I wish they had the 3 year warranty back in 2007). Now in 2015 the evaporator coil developed pinhole leaks again. This time it seems to have affected the compressor also. Repair will cost almost as much as a new one.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
Nice unit
by:Uncle Gary (07-23-2014)
Seabrook, Tx
Comments:I bought this to replace my 30 yr old Rapids system(still running)at my wife's instistance. It is quieter. My old system had the CO2 tank and gauges on the outside, in back. This was easier to get to, to check the guages, turn on/off the tank. The old one had the compressor and electric on top. This saved its life during hurricane Ike. Hopefully this one will last half as long.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
