Beer Tap Trailer

Beer Tap Trailer
A buddy of mine was getting married and he wanted a beer trailer, but the one or two of them that we found locally were super expensive. So we built one! Started with a lightweight trailer he had already and framed in a room on it. Well insulated, I added a small air conditioner to the front, the whole thing was reinforced to be able to make it down the highway without issue. On the side is shelf that simply bolts onto the trailer rail and acts as a table under the taps. Attached to that table are two small wall-mount style adjustable flag pole holders that capture two long dowels that support the swing up “window” which doubles as an overhead canopy when in use. The tap wall is designed to slide in and out as a complete unit. When stored inboard, the swing up “window” is secured with latches to keep the taps covered. When deployed, the tap wall slides out to allow access to the taps.

Inside, there are four feed barrels to hold kegs and ice, as well as brackets for the CO2 cylinder and liquid and gas line organizers to keep things organized. 

Unfortunately I don’t have any pics of it decorated up at his wedding (I wonder why???) but it works great! I’m hoping we’ll rent it out a few times next spring/summer and get our money back out of it. Regardless, it was a great project!

Edited to add a couple glamour shots taken by someone at the wedding. Unfortunately they’re pretty filtered, but…young folks and their phones, what can I say? They nicknamed it the Beer Barn, which I quite like!

Pretty cool.  great idea for outdoor get together's.   (Not just weddings)
I think with a little "get the word out"  you'll be able to rent it out with no trouble.
Nice work. 

Next time don't be hogging the end tap for yourself, and take some pics...

Figuring out how to do something you have never done is what makes a good challenge.

I’ll try to get some pics and update this…I’m sure they’re out there somewhere!
