Best Beverage Coolers & Centers for 2022

  • Make Your Outdoor Bar Dreams a Reality

    Outdoor beverage coolers are a classic staple for a reason (well, depending on the capacity you choose, a solid 75–150 reasons). You never know how badly you want a chilled can, a crisp beer, or an ice-cold water until it's a hot summer day and the open flames are licking those juicy steaks. Why would you want to put extra steps between the sweet release of delicious, hydrating refreshment and your parched throat? Luckily, you've come to the right place! Here at BBQGuys, we've been testing and selling outdoor kitchen equipment and outdoor refrigeration since the late 90's (sorry to rip the band-aid, but they're further away than you remember). Through rigorous examination, our outdoor living experts have hand-picked the following models based on their quality, performance, and features. If you want to learn the type of refrigeration to fit your needs, you can always read How to Buy Outdoor Refrigeration. Now, go flip those steaks and pop open a cold one! A drink, that is. Not a steak. We haven't found a steak that dispenses beer — frankly, we think that's flying too close to the sun.
