Portable Draft Beer Keg Coolers: Perfect for the Outdoors!










How do you plan to store and cool beer kegs during a concert or outdoor party? Keg coolers can be portable and provide great performance for parties, receptions, and more. Burkett Restaurant Equipment carries a variety of portable draft beer keg coolers, all of which are the perfect accessory for your outdoor events and catering! Two coolers that we suggest are from True Manufacturing, a leader in the refrigeration industry.

The True TDD-1 Keg Cooler allows you to keep a keg of your customers’ favorite draft right in front of the bar. This beer dispenser is designed with enduring value and quality. It is made with the highest quality materials, and assures colder product temperatures and years of trouble-free service. This oversized, factory balanced, refrigeration system holds 33°F to 38°F (.5°C to 3.3°C). With a stainless steel counter top and black vinyl exterior, this cooler not only looks great, but hides scratches and dents well.




The True TDD-1-S Keg Cooler from Burkett Restaurant Equipment lets you provide your customers with chilled-to-perfection brews. It also keeps your drafts fresh for long periods of time, all without reducing quality or taste. It is also an oversized, factory balanced, refrigeration system that holds 33°F to 38°F (.5°C to 3.3°C). Its interior features a stainless steel floor with 1/2″ (13 mm) reinforced lip, and heavy gauge galvanized steel walls. It is NSF-7 approved for bottled and packaged product. The cooler comes with an anodized aluminum glass rail on top that provides convenient storage for glasses.


Keg coolers are available in different materials and sizes, and finding the right one for you is easy with Burkett. Visit our website for the current selection, and contact a sales representative for more details or questions. Your guests deserve the coldest draft beer and fast service, so give them both with a draft keg cooler from True.

Keg Cooler Accessories

Keg Coolers make any restaurant or bar complete. Not only will you will save money with a beer dispensing machine as opposed to serving bottled beer, Keg Coolers also allow you to have a more diverse selection of beers. Like with any other heavy duty equipment in your kitchen, there are several accessories that will optimize its function.

Advance Tabco KR-93-X 10 Keg Storage Rack

Keg Storage Rack… You definitely want to stock extra kegs so that you do not run out on a busy Saturday night. Open shelving storage racks will keep your kegs easily accessibly anytime you or your crew needs to switch them out. Select from 4-10 keg capacity racks. We love the Advance Tabco 10-Keg Storage Rack which can easily hold up to ten kegs with its 1200 lbs. load capacity per shelf.





Bar Maid Keg Cart

Keg Cart… Kegs are heavy. Really heavy. If your workers drop a keg or hurt themselves trying to carry a keg across your establishment it could lead to expensive repercussions. A Keg Cart or Dolly can help avoid this problem. Made of 3/4″ steel, with an ergonomic handle, and a kick stand to keep your kegs stable this accessory is definitely a necessity if you’ll be serving draft beer.




Beverage-Air 164 Mug Glass Chiller

Glass Chillers… Never pour draft beer into a warm cup. Mugs should be ice cold (many of your customers will even expect to be served in a frosty beer mug). After washing mugs, place them in your glass chiller. To give your mug a head start in the chilling process, do not dry mugs after rinsing. Professional frosters take mugs and other glasses to sub-zero temperatures in a matter of seconds, providing an even layer of frost anytime you want it. There is one exception to serving beer in chilled mugs: Avoid serving dark, heavy beers such as stouts in frosted mugs, because these beers need to be slightly warmer to release their full flavor.



Beer Tap Cap

Beer Tap Cap… Don’t let your Keg taps become dirty and unsanitary. Beer Tap Caps are a sanitary solution for Keg Cooler taps. They help control yeast and bacterial build up inside draft taps, prevent beer taps from sticking, as well as keep pesky fruit flies away from taps.




Anchor Hocking 12oz Beer Mugs

Beer Mugs… You’ve got your keg, Keg Cooler, and all of the essential accessories, but you’re missing one thing- Beer Mugs! The great thing about beer mugs is that they come in plenty of different designs, sizes and made from either glass or plastic. Personally we’re big fans of Anchor Hocking’s 12oz Beer Mugs. Made from glass, with a classic design, these mugs are made to last and fit in with any restaurant design.




Bar Maid Electric Upright Glass Washer

Upright Glass Washers… With all those beer mugs, you’ll benefit from the assistance of an Upright Glass Washer. Available in manual or electric and as a submersible or non-submersible unit, Glass Washers are perfect for thoroughly and quickly cleaning mugs in a bar sink without having to run them through the dishwasher.  Equipped with durable washing brushes and stainless steel construction, these automatic cleaning tools are perfect for packed establishments that don’t want to waste extra time and effort manually washing and rinsing each and every glass. Now, bartenders will always have beer mugs won hand for those busy Saturday nights.

Beer Bread Recipe Made with Draft Beer

A well-poured mug of beer is not just for drinking (although it sure does taste delicious!). There are a variety of recipes that can be made with beer. From Beer Dip, to Beer Bread and even Chili, beer adds a bit of a kick to many recipes. Here’s one of my favorite recipes for Beer Bread. Keep in mind this can also be made with bottled beer or Alcohol-Free Beer if you prefer.

Swiss Beer Bread (Makes 1 loaf)


  • 4 ounces Swiss cheese
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 12 oz Draft Beer (or bottled or Alcohol-Free Beer)
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  1. Divide cheese in half. Cut half of cheese into 1/4-inch cubes. Shred remaining cheese.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and pepper. Stir beer into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in cheese.
  3. Transfer to a greased 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pan. Drizzle with butter.
  4. Bake at 375° for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.
