32 Inspiring DIY Keezer Designs with Tutorials

by Karl Updated on April 22, 2021

Eventually, most serious home brewers will switch to kegging their beer in lieu of bottling because it’s easier, cheaper, and it tastes better on draft.

After deciding to keg my own beer, I knew I would be wanting to build my own DIY kegerator, or “Keezer.”

I researched and looked, but there are not exactly books on the topic. There are plenty of ‘inspo’ pics out there to get ideas. But none of them showed the actual plan. So I started collecting those.

And eventually I actually did build a Keezer and explained the entire process here.

What is a Keezer?

If you have never heard of a keezer, it’s just a chest freezer modified to serve as a kegerator. So, as we do, just smash the 2 words together into 1.

Kegerator + Freezer = Keezer.

This, however, is a collection of all those tutorials which helped me come up with my own plans, including links to how they did it too. 

If you plan to build a keezer yourself, the possibilities are seemingly limitless. I hope this list gives you some good ideas for your next project.

Enjoy!
