I wondered if anyone has one of these installed on their boat.
A small version of the ones in the pub. They are only slightly bigger than a sodastream or soda club.
They seem to make sense in some senarios.
For example, if you liveaboard
and brew your own beer
or have a sodastream.
These things are like a sodastream, but with cooling
and only slightly bigger.
They have the potential to do away with all the cans and bottles that often need to be squashed and removed.
They seem to take up around about the same amount of space.
If, as some people with 2 fridges do, you nearly dedicate one fridge to drinks, then this has the potential to save you energy as well as they only cool what you are about to drink.
The problems I see are buying beer
You can get one way disposable kegs that squash flat, they are called keykegs.
The beer industry seems to charge the most for beer in kegs and the least for beer in cans .
The upsides are substanially less rubbish to remove each week/month/year.
Uses much less power than a fridge and gives you soda water
and fresh cold beer.
