    The old refrigerators had one moving part- the compressor- and no electronics. Even the compressor was switched on and off directly from the bi metal thermostat. And the compressor itself was very rugged, using technology from the wartime effort.

    From the time I bought my 1950’s fridge in 1992, each spring I would say a little prayer hoping it would turn on after being off all winter. The last 20 years I do not think a second about it. I KNOW it will turn on.

    Whew, and it still keeps the beer Ice cold.

    But how is it that those old refrigerators never need Freon or anything? I would think the seals would go bad. They need nothing. I got a small one in my garage. It's subjects to all kinds of weather since there is no climate control there. I've dragged it off to college with me. It came from my grandfather's medical practice before that. Never had a lick of issue with it. I occasionally defrost the freezer part

    I’ll bet if you looked at it closer you would find that there were no seals. It was all copper tubing that was brazed together and it was a closed loop system. Now, the systems are more modular to accommodate assembly and they use seals.

    What BernieCarbo said plus maybe me turning off the 1950’s Fridge in the winter keeps it from deteriorating. My garage is not climate controlled.

    Budweiser Will Give You Beer Money When You Get Vaccinated

    OK, so how does this work? All you have to do is upload proof of your vaccination (a selfie with your sticker, photo of your band-aid, or image of you at the vaccination site) through ABeerOnBud.com. Now until May 16, or while supplies last, the brand will send vaccinated folks a $5 virtual debit card to cover the cost of a Budweiser. There are 10,000 virtual debit cards up for grabs.
