My apparment does not have any outlets in the basement

Can I use one of these to power a small table counter fridge for my beer in the basement or does it use too many current?

it will work fine. I would dismount the socket and get the current from there.

A light socket should be able to supply enough power to run a small refrigerator, assuming the circuit it's on isn't overloaded.

The problem is, because a light bulb socket is just two contracts to supply power, any adapter you use will just be creating an ungrounded outlet, where as most refrigerators, even the small ones, use a grounded plug.

What gauge is the wire?Anything above 1.5mm should be able to hold a 3.5kw load on the whole circuit.
Also what's the max amparage on your light circuit? - that's also an easy way to find if your wiring can hold anything more tha a lights.

It's a novelty bulb, the second base isn't active.

a counter sized fridge should be fine
