SO I've been looking around on the home bar forum for a while, thinking about building my own home bar. My question is simply: Is building a kegerator and buying kegs of beer worth it? I realize the costs associated to building a kegerator, about 500ish. The real question is, is buying kegs of beer worth it? I'm seeing 1/6th kegs of founder's for between 140- to something like 300. On the low end that's like 2.50 a brew. doesn't seem like a great deal when I can buy a four pack for 10 bucks. Help me here. I want to build a kegerator and have home draft beer, but is it really worth it?
