Mini Pub Kegerator

by Carolyn

What better way to wind down after a hard week’s worth of work than with a cold beer? As I sit here with my measly 12 oz bottle of beer, I think “what could be better than this?”

It’s usually at that time I have to get up and go downstairs for another 12oz beer.

But I found a product today that makes that Friday happy hour that much more perfect: the Avanti MBD5L Mini Pub Mini Beer Keg Dispenser. This compact mini kegerator is designed to hold any standard 5 liter mini keg and comes with both an AC and DC power adapters so it can be used anywhere. It features a digital display to easily adjust the ideal temperature of your brew while the thermoelectric cooling system runs whisper quiet.

Standard Features include:

  • Color: Stainless Steel
  • Ideal for Use in the Home, Boat or RV
  • Uses All Standard 5-Liter Mini Beer Kegs (Not Included)
  • Digital Display for Temperature Settings (°C/°F)
  • CO2 Pressure Regulator
  • Three 16-Gram CO2 Cartridges Included (Enough to Dispense 3 or More 5-L Kegs)
  • Tapping and Cleaning Kits Included
  • Lightweight for Easy Portability
  • Thermoelectric Technology
  • Soft Interior Lighting with On/Off Switch
  • Can Accommodate a Larger (340-Gram) CO2 Cylinder (Enough to Dispense Up to 20 Kegs)
  • UL Listed AC and DC Power Adapters Included
  • Instructional DVD

I’m curious if it would work with one’s home-brewed beer as well. You could have your own pub at home!  It would also save me from having to keep going downstairs for more beer.  Perfect!

Pick one up at Beverage Factory for around $230 (with free shipping!).

Run away from this thing – company is terrible.

I was given the mini pub as a gift. The third time i tried to hook up a Heineken mini keg, the attachment broke. Ok. It happens. It’s plastic after all.

Phone call to support sounded like a bad comedy show. I won’t run through the entire skit (although at one point i burst out in a belly laugh, it got so silly). Basic jist is that, while they are happy to sell the minipub and have it shipped to Canada – they won’t ship any replacement parts to Canada.


Yep. It’s $3.00 in postage to ship the piece i need. And I’ll pay for it. But they don’t seem to have the organizational good sense to buy a bloody stamp and put an address on a package.

Bottom line: The product breaks. Support is silly. Stay away.

I bought this kegerator a few weeks ago. Got to try it for the first time. A little disappointed that it doesn’t make the beer colder. The unit doesn’t compare with having the keg packed in ice. If I can get an extention hose, or make one myself, I would only use the tap and put the keg in a tub of ice.
