How to Determine What Size Keg Cooler You’ll Need

When it comes to commercial beer dispensing, kegs are not one size fits all. There are several things to note when determining what size Keg Cooler your establishment will require.

  • Availability of each size of keg will vary by brand of beer and location.
  • Talk to your beer supplier to find out which brands are available for immediate pick-up, and which need to be special ordered, and in which size keg those particular brands are available.
  • Approximate Keg Diameters:
    • 1/6 Keg= 9-18″
    • 1/4 Slim Keg= 12″
    • 1/4 Standard Keg= 16-17″
    • 1/2 Keg= 16-17″
  • Once you determine what size kegs you will need, then you should shop for the proper size Keg Cooler.
  • Keg Box Capacities:
    • True 1-Keg Capacity will hold….  1 x Standard or 1/2 Keg; or combination of 2 x 1/6 Keg and 1 x 1/4 Slim Keg; or combination of 4 x 1/6 Kegs
