The wife won't give me the go-ahead to install a tap ("we may actually use that for something other
than beer someday") but it's my 26 ft3 side-by-side 'beer fridge'. Nothing in it but beverages; three shelves of beer, and the drawers are full of juice boxes for the kids. I have the 4th shelf set with only about 4" of space - just enough for leftover pizza boxes.
You don't need a tap to have free-flowing beverages - nothing like just having to walk over on a hot summer day and pop one to be a significant
influence on heavy consumption. I'd say that going with bottles even results in quicker turnaround than a tap - especially with practice!
Edit: oh, and to the OP - your bike will be fine outside, though I understand LowCel's desire to keep that investment, oops - collection, inside, esp in WV. While they're in a shed, try and keep them dry; water = bad.
