Piaggio Ape Beer – Mobile Beer Truck with Tap System for Events

Beer, together with wine, tea and coffee, is one of the most consumed beverage in the world. In Europe, USA, Australia and many other countries, beer is undoubtedly the most common drink during moments of gathering. At home, at the pub, at restaurants, parties, festivals and events, beer can be considered the universal social bond.

Curiously, there are countless breweries and pubs, where beer flows nonstop, but only a few itinerant breweries.

Although the street food sector embraces any street food category and food trucks of all kinds comes to light, beer is still served in bottles. Tap beer remains a kind of taboo in the food truck world.

Consequently, companies, public entities, private citizens and agencies that organize events continued to use banquets, gazebos and temporary stalls to offer a catering service with drinks like beer, wine, aperitivi and similar.

The main reason for this void in the beer market – but this could work for wine, prosecco and other drinks – is due to the fact that it’s a common belief that tap technology can’t be adapted to the imposed conditions of a vehicle or mobile structures with limited space.

If this could be true in the past, it is not anymore. We can design a efficient mobile prosecco bar or a wine truck on every kind of vehicle.
