Buy it, this is the one.
by:Fugazy (12-05-2013)
Denver CO- THE home of beer :)
Comments:After doing tons of research and waffling in mixed reviews I pulled the trigger on the three tap unit Kegco.
Other reviews do talk about the only two negatives I have found in 3 kegs and 3 months.
1. Tower is not as adequately cooled and first pour can be foamy if it's been a few days since pouring one. Solution...drink more often
2. Set up is complicated if you don't know what you are doing
I have had a few keg conversion fridges, and am moderately handy. I put it together in 30 minutes or so, no issues whatsoever.

There is absolutely nothing else wrong with this unit so far. The motor is quiet as can be, you can't even tell its on. The temperature is too cold on the max setting I run mine at one below max, or 5, and my beer (like very other reviewer) is COLD.
Set the gas at 8 PSI, cool the beer for enough time, and all will be good on this unit.

This will hold 2 commercial 5.5 gal or Sixths kegs and 1 homebrew keg. It will NOT hold 3 commercial kegs, so plan on making or scoring a batch if you want three on tap at once. It will fit the above 3 combo and the CO2 tank all inside the unit.
FILL your gas tank at a local paintball store for 10-15 bucks, so you don't exchange your brand new cylinder at a brew shop or welding supply and get some beat up old one in trade.

Bottom line LOOKS GREAT, POURS GREAT,RUNS GREAT...IS GREAT

Stop looking, buy this one
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Finally! A fridge that holds Coors kegs!
by:Happy Drinker (12-03-2013)
Wyoming
Comments:I am so happy. This is my second kegerator (the first one was another brand). I bought this second one, because the first brand of fridge would not hold full coors brand kegs (terrible).

With this model you are able to fit the Co2 tank right inside the fridge WITH THE FULL KEG! This leaves room to push the unit flush against a wall. (my other one had the Co2 tank on the back of the fridge).
Very pleased with this Kegerator and company!
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Plain jane, but works
by:L.J (12-01-2013)
Fairfax, Va
Comments:I upgraded the tower and spigots. it was a good move. Keeps the beer flowing. The unit works great. Like the fact I can fit 3 kegs in there. Everything came in as expected. The customer service was great in helping me make a decision.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
So far so good
by:Travis (11-25-2013)
canton Ohio
Comments:was a very easy setup. Shipping was great. Package came undamaged. Had it set up and cooling within an hour. did follow simple reviews on here about Tapping The keg. I waited almost 12 hours while it cooled. had the PSI set around 10 and have been enjoying nice ice cold beer since. customer service was also awesome. I was very nervous about buying something like this online but couldn't be happier.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Fantastic!!
by:Donger (11-15-2013)
Milwaukee, WI
Comments:I just set it up and tapped my first 1/6 barrel. The product arrived on time and nicely protected during transit. When, I opened the package it appeared that the stainless steel doors were scratched so I called customer service to complain. It turned out that there is a very tight, clear, plastic wrap over the door to protect it that needs to be removed. The kegorator stays nice and cold, the liquor store filled my 5oz co2 tank and the set up was pretty simple. As a result, ice cold beer and I would recommend this unit and this company! Happy Drinking!
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.

by:Pete (10-21-2013)

Comments:This unit ws easy to set up, runs quiet and I can adjust the temperature to dial in a perfect 37 degrees. This is great for a home den or patio area. The casters provided add to the portability.

Enjoying my own beer on tap
by:CA Reviewer (09-03-2013)
California
Comments:I recently started making my own beer, after much research I decided to purchase the K209. I have my homebrew kegs in there now, but I may want some of my favorite local breweries on tap so I did purchase a quick disconnect system, making it easier to switch to any purchased kegs with out having to remove the hex nut from the beer line. Great purchase, I will be enjoying this for a long time!

Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Prefect for home brew kegs
by:Dennis (08-30-2013)
Phoenix, AZ
Comments:I ordered this unit with the Kegco strap kegs along with the ball lock couplers and I could'nt be happier. Before I bottled my beer which took a tremendous amount of time. Now with this system I actually have time to drink my beer! Another benifit is this unit gets very cold. I highly recommend this unit!
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
As Cold as you need it.

Pleased with New Home Addition
by:Marv (08-29-2013)
Philadelphia, PA
Comments:For the price and the function. This beer cooler does the job. I plan on moving it to my home bar when I complete it. Happy that the unit is quieter than I thought it would be. Sometimes it seems like the first pour is foamy. Not sure how I can fix that issue. After that first beer, the rest pours really nice. That is my only main complaint.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Love my Birthday Gift
by:McGrath (08-12-2013)
Long Beach, CA
Comments:My wife bought me this kegerator for a birthday gift and I couldn't be happier with it. The stainless door looks great, the tap parts are all top quality, and most importantly this thing gets COLD! I like my beer very cold and this kegerator certainly gets the job done. We already went through a pony keg of Bud Light and are working on our second. I might upgrade to the double tower soon so I can get two 5 gallon kegs pouring at the same time. Overall, I've been very very happy with this kegerator!
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Damn Near Perfect
by:Adam (08-05-2013)
Tucson, AZ
Comments:Took about an hour and half to set up. All the parts were included and directions were easy to follow. The unit runs quiet and cold. I have not tried to store two 5 gallon kegs yet, but it does look like there is plenty of space. When filled with beer the unit is not that easy to move around with the casters. I think a digital control would be nicer.

Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
No Problems with this Kegerator
by:J Hughes (08-01-2013)
West Allis, WI
Comments:I set the Kegco up in less than an hour and it has been working great for over two weeks now. The keg beer gets very cold. The kegerator does not seem very loud. I would definitley recommend to anyone in the beer cooler market. I like the large interior which makes it easy to fit my keg and all the beer parts.

Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.

So Far Good
by:Razor (07-08-2013)
Longmont, CO
Comments:I have my Kegco on my back covered patio. So far so good. Will let you know when it gets warmer how this unit holds up. Thinking the beer in the tower might get warm and foamy.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Pouring Draft Beer in my Garage
by:Garage Drinker (06-17-2013)
Orchard Park, NY
Comments:I am liking the kegerator. I struggled with the instructions and had some foam issues with the first keg. That was related to temperature and I had set the Co2 Regulator to the wrong setting. I guess I was in a hurry to start drinking. Wish it had a digital temperature control. The kegerator has been keeping the keg cold and I no longer have foam issues.

Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
My new favorite kegerator
by:Beeroholic (06-11-2013)
Tallahassee, FL
Comments:This is my fourth kegerator, so I feel like I have a pretty good idea of what I'm talking about at this point. I've had a Danby and a Haier and my dad has had a Beverage Air so those are the brands I'm comparing it to. I got the Haier first and it lasted for a couple years but the beer always seemed to be a bit foamy. I was an impatient idiot and instead of waiting for it to defrost, I tried chipping the ice off of the plate in the back and punctured it, causing all the liquid to leak out. I bought the Danby next because it had a digital temp display which I thought would be cool. Well, the digital temp display just told me that it didn't get very cold. I had more foam and talking to the folks at Beverage Factory, found out that if beer is not cold enough, that causes foam. I couldn't get it to go any colder, so I sold it and bought the Kegco. I've had it for a couple months and couldn't be happier. It really gets cold! I measured the temp down below 30 at it's coldest setting so I actually had to turn it up a bit. I really like the look of it and the built in drip tray is easy to clean and allows plenty of room between the top of the kegerator and the faucet. I would say it gets every bit as cold as my dad's commercial grade Beverage Air but it doesn't sound like a jet engine! (his kegerator is LOUD!) I see that Kegco has a digital kegerator out now so maybe I ordered a little too soon, but maybe I'll sell this one and buy it later! Overall, I'm very happy with the performance.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Cold and good shipping
by:M Busch (06-10-2013)
Campo, TX
Comments:After reading a lot of reviews about kegerators I decided to call Beverage Factory. This model was recommended to me for the best value. I was told that the K209SS has a thermostat designed to make the kegerator run at colder temperatures. That is correct I don't know the temperature inside, but, the beer is very cold and I don't have foam issues like some other reviews I have read. It was easy to assemble probably took about 30 minutes and the flush drip tray is a cool little extra. For the money it was great value.

I ordered on a Saturday it took 5 business days to me with the appt. I set-up.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Good Unit
by:Stylin (06-10-2013)
Toano, Virgnia
Comments:The Kegco 209 has kept my beer ice cold with nice smooth pours. Looking like great beer and times in my future.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Saving Money Beer Tastes Better
by:J Esposito (06-09-2013)
Miami, FL
Comments:For the price, this kegerator is the best option. I already have recommended to my friends. I have already drunk quite a few kegs before this review. All the kegs have been super cold and the beer super tasty. I am saving big time by buying kegs over beer bottles. Less mess and less recycling makes it even nicer. I have to adjust the CO2 pressure over time as sometimes. Overall this unit has been a breeze to operate and maintain.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Coors cooler
by:Good Friend (05-07-2013)
Golden, CO
Comments:My friend works at Coors and is able to get me a free keg from time to time so I needed a kegerator that would fit their keg with no problems and this one was recommended. When it arrived, I got it set up quickly and as advertised, had no problems fitting the Coors keg inside. One thing to watch out for - when i first hooked it up, I figured I'd turn it to it's highest setting because I love cold beer and I've seen other kegerators that struggle to maintain the right temp. Well, I ended up freezing my first keg because this thing got colder than I expected. The thermometer was reading 23 degrees at the 6 setting, so I moved it to between 4 and 5 and it's right around 32. It's perfect!
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.

by:K Brodt (04-16-2013)
Davie, FL
Comments:This kegerator is nice a spacious and maintains a constant temp. It fits my Coors kegs no problem. This is my new favorite toy.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Good Kegerator for the Price
by:McCarty (04-03-2013)
Lexington, KY
Comments:I am glad I purchased the larger kegerator over the smaller model. This Kegco easily holds my keg and the beer parts. Unit has a decent look. Currently running it in my garage. I was concerned about running in my garage, but so far so good. I would recommmend.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
I get to enjoy kegged beer at home now!
by:Aguiar (03-21-2013)

Comments:Setting up the unit was a breeze! Good instruction manual included shows how to setup the unit. I use this downstairs in my basement bar and its been great to have a fresh, cold draft beer at home while watching the game. Best price anywhere.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Good Kegerator Smooth Order

Trouble Finding Gas
by:Need Gas (02-04-2013)
Glen Burnie, MD
Comments:This kegerator seems nice. However I had a problem finding a Co2 Gas supplier nearby. I might now have to buy a larger Co2 tank. Not sure what to do. I would call to make sure you can find a place to fill up. I found a paintsupply store.
Bottom Line:I would not recommend this product.
 
Great Product, Great Service
by:reviewer (02-02-2013)
Seattle, WA
Comments:The Kegco unit works well. I I had to play around with the CO2 PSI. I had called in for assistance, the beer department was helpful, determining I had set my pressure too high. I know have it stable with very little foam at 10 PSI. It runs with minimal noise, which I was concerned about, I have it set up in my family room, the noise has not been an issue.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
 
Man Cave Needed This
by:Parks (01-22-2013)
Riverside, CA
Comments:This is a great kegerator. I purchased for my newly completed Man Cave (best addition ever). Assembly was super simple took about 25 minutes. So far it runs very cold which was a concern from what I have read on other reviews. I should have upgraded to the double guage regulator for $20.00 it would be nice to know if the Co2 is getting low or a leak. But the kegerator is great and I am enjoying a cold one now as I write this review.
Bottom Line:
 
Very happy with my purchase
by:Happy Drinker (01-11-2013)
Jackson, WY
Comments:I'm very happy with my purchase of the Kegco K209 kegerator. The fridge came with instructions to set up the tap system and I was up and running in under an hour. My first keg needed to settle a little bit, I would recommend planning ahead if you have a party and get your keg the day before. The beer is very cold and the unit looks really nice in my man cave! Overall, highly recommend this model.
Bottom Line:I would recommend this product.
