Double Tap Tower

This unit features a double tap tower with a 10 1/4" faucet height that allows you to easily fill pint glasses and pitchers with local microbrews, international macrobrews, and everything in between. Standard double tap towers allow you to tap multiple kegs, offering more variety to your customer without the need for extra equipment.

Convenient Storage

It holds (2) 1/2 kegs so you can stock up on one brew or offer customers a selection to choose from, and it even comes with 2 shelves for optional bottle or can storage while concealing the product behind 2 solid doors. The doors themselves are not only self-closing to prevent potential energy loss, but also lock to prevent theft during off hours.

Eco-Friendly Refrigerant

This unit has a 1/5 hp refrigeration system that circulates environmentally-friendly R290 hydrocarbon refrigerant. R290 refrigerant has an ozone depletion potential (ODP) of 0 and a global warming potential (GWP) of 3, making it an environmentally-responsible choice for your business. A 115V electrical connection is required for operation.

Durable and Easy to Clean

This commercial kegerator features a black coated steel exterior and a 304 type stainless steel interior that is both durable and easy to clean, while a built-in drip tray further expedites end-of-day cleaning.

Self-Closing, Locking Doors

To help protect your brews and other supplies from theft or tampering during off-hours, the dispenser's self-closing doors are outfitted with locks.

Couplers Included

Avantco brand beer dispensers come with more startup equipment than other brands, including four "D" system couplers. "D" system (American Sankey) is the most common system used in the U.S. For your convenience, this unit also ships with a keg mat.

Digital Display and LED Lights

Thanks to the easy-to-read digital temperature control and display, you can quickly check the interior temperature of the cabinet. In addition to that, LED lights illuminate the interior of the dispenser so that you have plenty of light when installing your kegs.

Customer Q&A Ask a Question

I haven’t heard of R-290, R-600a, or R-513a refrigerant before. What is it?
R-290 (also known as high purity propane or CARE 40) and R-600a (also known as refrigerant grade Isobutane or CARE 10) are hydrocarbon refrigerants. R513a (also known as Opteon XP10) is an HFO (hydrofluoroolefin) refrigerant. They are being used as an eco-friendly refrigerant by some manufacturers in response to the EPA’s Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) Program. Read more about this program in our blog post on Refrigerant Regulations.
Does this Avantco kegerator come with all of the accessories needed for operation?
While this unit does come with a coupler, you will also need a CO2 tank, CO2 regulator, and gas hoses.
Can this unit be built into cabinetry?
It should not be built into cabinetry. This unit is rear and side breathing, and for proper ventilation it requires 3" of clearance behind it and on the sides.
What size CO2 tank do I need for this beer dispenser?
The size of the CO2 tank you choose will be determined by the size of your beer dispenser unit and how often you are willing to refill the tank. Larger tanks will last longer than smaller tanks, but frequency and usage should also be taken into consideration. If you plan to store your CO2 tank inside the beer dispenser, then size will be a factor here since you will also need enough room to properly store your kegs. Your local beer supplier will be able to offer suggestions and show you the maximum tank size for your dispenser.
I'd like to install casters on this unit. Do I need 4 casters?
Yes, this item requires 4 casters. For convenience, we offer a kit with all of the casters and the M8-1.25mm x 20mm bolts required to mount them. See the Items You May Also Need section.
What if my Avantco cooler doesn’t seem to be getting cold enough throughout the cabinet?
Make sure that you are loading it properly, and not overloading it. This unit is designed for cans, bottles, and similar items that naturally enable good airflow within the cabinet. Overloading the cooler with cases and boxes will interrupt the airflow and negatively impact the unit’s performance.
My Avantco cooler’s compressor doesn’t kick on until 47 degrees, what should I do?
Before contacting Avantco for warranty service, please try resetting the temperature differential using these instructions.
Does this unit work with any half-barrel kegs?
While this unit does have ample interior space, it is best used with straight-wall kegs, not barrel-style kegs. If you have any questions about what style keg you have, please contact your beer distributor for more information.
Can this unit be used with an external CO2 tank?
Yes, the Avantco UDD2/3/4/48/60/72 have spots on the right-hand side opposite the compressor, while the Avantco UDD1 have spots in the back, where you can drill out holes for use with external CO2 lines.
Can this kegerator be used to dispense ciders?
No. Beverages such as cider, wine, and coffee have high levels of acidity, and dispensing them through this unit may damage its internal parts and have adverse effects on the product being dispensed. As designed, this unit is intended to dispense beer only. This model can be easily converted to be wine-safe, by swapping out the faucet, shank, beer hose, and coupler for stainless steel or wine-friendly equivalents.

Here's some basic settings you can make to your Avantco refrigerator in your restaurant. If you want to adjust the temperature, you hold set for one second and you'll see your low temperature limit. This unit is set to shut off at 33 degrees. If you want to have it shut off at a warmer temperature you can adjust it up. But it will not go below 33. You see when I get to 33 it just cycles back up to the top of the temperature range. Take this unit back down to 33 degrees. Press set to save it and you're back to your home screen.

    kegs keg left right barrel door online need hold fit
  • Arrange by 
    Have bought plenty of Avantco products here and have all worked out. Unfortunately, the negative of buying online is you cant confirm the product before delivering. This product states that it can hold 2 - 1/2 barrel kegs, However, the left door is smaller than the right and does not fit a 1/2 barrel keg through it. Requiring you to put both kegs through the right door and sliding the keg to the left. This will be a challenge when we need to change only the left keg and not the right.
    Thank you for your feedback! We’re sorry this did not meet your expectations. While this unit does have ample interior space, it is best used with straight-wall kegs, not barrel-style kegs. If you have any questions about what style keg you have, please contact your beer distributor for more information.
