' prune "meet to provide beer or other e or the invention is ie it coola which arlapted to cor.- cl coals and Wherea-ccmrrpsaying drawings or this specification anal e the constructlon anti a vertical 580 101! through be used to ll'arent views. Mill 1 intlicatcs er], accord ance with my invention. it is to behind-erst orl that "while I have only shown my cooler construct-e with a psir of upper and lo;r er compartments doors ogening Ill? rlorrrsrssre.
indicated in liigures 2, 3, and 4 positioned in the upper compartments are adapted to be snpportecl in such a position Lli'iULi-lii: front ends of same can be readii Y ipped for dispensing liquid therefrom. ll rap 6 is connected to one end or": the barrels in the upper compartments 'by passing taps through openings formed. in the doors 2, anfi a flexible hose 7 is connected to the opposite end or each of the barrels, and the opposite end of the hose 7 is connected'to a pipe 8 which runs to any suitable source or comso that by opening the in the S, compressecl air is ei'rer the kegs in the upper and clisgcnse the beverage "or; 6.
i 10 of the cooler is provided adjacent its upper edge with trap doors 11,
which are two in number, one positioned lo'ehind each of the kegs 5 in the upper compartments. The trap doors 11 permit means for extending the hanrl into said cooler for cos the hose '3 to the pipe 8 and to operate the valve "9 for allowing compressed to enter the kegs.
Supportecl in any suitable way on top of the cooler at a point above the upper chant or is a perforated partition 12, whereby ottlecl goods and ice may be placed therein irough doors 13. Thus it will he seen that the drippings from the ice will pass over the kegs in both the upper and lower compartments, thus not only keeping the kegs from which the beverage is being dispensed.
'cool but also the kegs stored in the lower 'com'oartments.
ending horizontally. across the cooler at the bottom and in the middle of same are 9. series of rollers i l, on which the racks 3 the cooler by pulling outwardly on onerof the doors 2. By supporting the racks and kegs in such. a manner the kegs can be first arranged on the racks and "placed in the lower compartment in order thet thebeverthereto. be cooled while hevorsge is being dispensed from the kegs in the upper the rocks in order to eliminate the necessity of removing the tops 6 when opening or closing the doors.
QB-rem the foregoing description of my invention taken in connection with the ecconr penying drawings, it can be readily seen that I have provided on improved cooling chenr ,ber fo the dispensing of beverages from kegs, which is absolutely sanitary, as the liqhid posses directly from the hog to the top or faucet, thus eliminating all coils or other intervening cooling devices which accumulate deposits or sediments which are dangerous to healtl or destroy/ the original flavor of the beverage. This is especially true in the case of beer, t being a recognized fact to brewers and others versed in the manufacture of beer and other hevcrages. It z'ill also be observed thet hay improved cooler serves three distinct purposes, namely: the storage or keggecl ooc'ls, supporting keggecl goods on tap for lispehsing, and also e cooling chest for bottled goods. 4
It is to he understood that the form of my invention herewith shown ancldcscriheoi is to be taken as o preferred example of the same,. and that various changes as to the shape size, and arrangement of parts may t? sea-rises he rcsorteci to, without cieperting from the adopted to he received in said compartment by passing the some through said openings,
cioors carried by-said racks for closing" said openings when said racks are received in the compartment, rollers arranged in the cornpiirtinent for receiving and supporting said moire kegs seid racks being; identical in construction and arranged in the compartment so that one of soici racks with the keg thereon may be substituted in the place of the other rock and keg.
2. In a, cooler comprising a compartment having a pair of door openings therein, e pair of keg supporting; racks adapted to he received in said compartment b passing the some through said openings, oors carried by saiciracks for closing said openings when S'riil'i raclrs are received in said coinpertn'icnt, rollers arranged in the compartment for ro cei'v'ing and supporting: said racks and hogs, each of sehi doors having on opening therein to permit a tap to oxtcml therethrough for topping said liege, saiil racks being identical in construction and arranged in the compartment so that one rock with the keg thereon may be substituted. in the place of the other rock and keg.
