Everything You Should Know About Back Bar Bottle Coolers

Jun 29, 2008
Back bar Bottle coolers or Beer fridges as they are sometimes referred to, are one of the most important pieces of must have large equipment for most licensed premises and their popularity shows no sign of abating, according to manufactures and suppliers alike.

With the ever increasing trend towards environmentally conscious purchases in the workplace there is growing interest for more energy saving machines, there are units on the market that can offer a 30% energy saving compared to other models. An energy saving Bottle Cooler will be more expensive to purchase initially but the cost of running such a unit will be less compared with a higher energy consuming unit so the increased outlay on initial cost is justified over time and will soon pay for itself.

Also what customers want from their bottle cooler is a machine that has a good pull down time meaning the time it takes a room temperature bottled beer to reach a servable temperature for the customer. Most units will arrive with factory fitted locks which are an important feature that most customers require, if the unit you are purchasing does not come with locks as standard then your supplier should in most circumstances be able to offer you this feature as an extra.

Warranties on a bottle cooler are something that should be looked at very carefully at the point of purchase as buying a unit with a short warranty or a parts only warranty could prove costly in the long run as a qualified engineer will charge by the hour and experience will show that this is by no means cheap.

Parts for a faulty bottle cooler are notoriously expensive and completely justifies purchasing an extended warranty or choosing a unit that comes with a decent warranty in the first place. Some companies will offer lease options on larger units, this has the advantage of giving you the piece of mind that if your unit develops a fault in the future then the cost of repair is covered.

Ok so with those points made a Bottle cooler does have many advantages for the licensee and customer alike, a bottle cooler which will usually be placed just behind the bar in plain view of the customer will act as a point of sale for the customer. This gives the customer a shop window style browsing option as to exactly what type of bottled drinks your premises has on offer displayed by your internally illuminated glass fronted bottle cooler.

Bottle coolers will nearly always have the option to be purchased with either hinged doors which are self closing (if situated on a level surface) or in a sliding door option, a sliding door bottle cooler gives you the added benefit of saving space by not having to worry about door clearance on a hinged unit when taking the product out of the unit. which when on a busy day behind a crowded bar can prove invaluable due to increased mobility behind the bar for the staff meaning customers get served quicker and avoiding collisions and potential breakages.
