  2. I suppose it might work, assuming it was designed to hold 12-ish psi long term (certainly doesn't need to for wine, but who knows?). Generally speaking, you'd want to use CO2 instead of argon or nitrogen to dispense beer, and you also need to use some kind of adapters to connect to the beer bottles, so you'll need to make some modifications. If you're handy enough to do that, then you'd probably be better off spending maybe 1/3 the price to build a proper beer dispenser. $1,000+ will also buy you a really nice ready made kegerator.

    Yeah I'm pretty sure the bar I mentioned has a C02 system added. It's definitely a niche purchase and a kegerator makes a lot more sense 99% of the time.
