In this article, we’re going to be discussing whether a wine refrigerator can cool wine to a cold enough temperature for storing beer

We understand that this is a common question that people have, as to can a wine fridge be used for beer.

Therefore, without further ado, let’s dive straight into it and answer the question:

Is a wine refrigerator cold enough for storing beer?

Yes, a wine fridge is actually perfectly ideal for storing beer, whether that’s canned, bottled or cellared beer.

Why? Well, depending on the type of beer and storage humidity, different types of beer have ideal serving temperatures between 35°F and 60°F.

For storing multiple types of beer in your cooler, keeping the temperature between 50 and 55°F is an ideal compromise. This is around the temperature range that red wine and white wine is stored at.

Because you’re not cooling the beer too much, it means that you can truly taste the subtleties of the drink. Unlike if you were to store your beer in a wine fridge. This is because as your taste receptors become numbed when beer is too cold, the beer becomes blander or near-impossible to taste at all.

Wine coolers are widely used by beer lovers who are very serious about their beer.

Wine Fridge Alternatives for Storing Beer

Other than a traditional refrigerator, there are some alternatives that are worth mentioning here. These include:

Beer Fridge

Specifically designed for the purpose of storing canned and bottled beer. This is undeniably the most suitable appliance to use. However, for those who may not have the additional space to store one, or the budget, then a wine cooler is a great substitute.

Beverage Cooler

This is another option to use, and one that is equally as suitable as using a wine cooler.

However, if you’re considering using a beverage refrigerator for this purpose, then you should potentially just skip this and choose a beer fridge. As it will allow you to store your beer cans at the perfect temperature.
