• The Brew Cave Goes Viral

    April 16th, 2012

    All it took was one article by tech site Gizmodo for the Brew Cave to become the ultimate wish-list item for thousands of beer lovers and home brewers. For the uninitiated, the Brew Cave is a walk-in kegerator that comfortably stores 30 cases of beer and 6 kegs. Since the first article, stories have popped up all over the internet including TIME, Uncrate and even an interview with our VP of Operations at Craft Cans. The Brew Cave represents an idea whose time has come.

    Has your walk-in cooler or freezer seen a lot of use and abuse over the years? Door parts on walk-ins are particularly susceptible due to heavy traffic and may become worn or break. In the past we have exclusively provided walk-in parts for our units by calling our parts line 866-261-2797 (8-5PM CST). U.S. Cooler is proud to announce the launch of our new parts website walkincoolerparts.com. The site will allow you to create an account and save items in your cart to be purchased at a later date. It also offers the convenience of 24/7 ordering, free shipping, secure checkout and no minimum purchase amounts.

    Currently, our online catalog only offers parts that are standard on U.S. Cooler walk-ins. These include cam locks, closers, gaskets, handles, hinges, light fixtures, screed and more. In the coming months, we will begin adding additional items to our catalog encompassing parts that require specific sizing or aren’t found on U.S. Cooler manufactured units.
