Jones is an entrepreneur. You know,
one of those kind of people who are driven, bright, egotistical, thought they
could always run things better than the boss and enjoys being able to take a day
off when they want. The flip side
is, they bust ass on some days, weeks, or even years until
an idea works. Then, they
continue to bust ass to make the bills. Difference
is the skies the limit. Your never
know how much money you’re gonna make ‘til it happens…. Another quality of
entrepreneurs is that they get bored easy.
Craig’s no exception and he started to get itchy to do something new.
a twist of events (ask most business owners how they got started in something, 9
times out of 10 the answer is, “It just happened”) …he came up with the
idea to convert old refrigerators into one of a kind pieces of functioning art.
better kind of functioning art could there be but one that dispenses beer? So,
he began to make :
Custom Kegerators by Craig. These
cool objects de art are “One Offs". One of a kind pieces of foamy drinking
a 1/2 barrel keg (15.5 gal.) Enough to last a while and a heck of a lot cheaper
than going to the market and getting bottled beer. The custom tap is made from a
crystal skull and neon was placed behind the "Bone Daddy" bobbing head
in the door. Yes, the handle is a real human femur bone. Yes, it's legal.
old throw back from Craig’s medical days—get the joke?)
blue neon behind the Bone Daddy nodder is wired into the system. The tap drain
goes back through the door and the collection bottle located inside the door at
the bottom. Notice that the beer line connection for the tap is recessed to
allow for a straight connection so the line doesn't kink. The CO2 bottle was
painted to match the fridge. The paint job has white pearl in it & painted
with "ghost" skulls and bones on the fridge. When light hits them they
#2 came out at the end of June 2003. Christened “Devil May Care”, it’s a
1953 GE fridge with another hellishly fun design concept.
A dual tap system Which makes having two flavors of beer more fun than one. This fridge sports a candy apple flame paint job, pitchfork and devil tail taps, a see through freezer door with red neon (when Hell freezes over, get it?), and chrome flame handles.
concepts are in development ranging from a “custom car fridge” to a government “X-File-ien”
Alien theme called, “Science Experiment #7”.

Remember, being an entrepreneur is a curse and a blessing. Drinking draft beer in your own house, from your own custom kegerator falls into the blessing category.
