Beer trucks deliver in style around the world

What’s better than a cold one on a hot day?  How about a cold beer on a hot day, that comes to you?

Here’s what that looks like around the world…

This giant Heineken can be found cruising the Australian countryside, delivering ice cold beer to regular Aussies, and giant Aussies like the Yowie (if that Australian Bigfoot should make an appearance).

Coors Light brought some welcome cool to toasty Southern California, with this 3D-Rocky Mountains look, combined with actual beer inside.

Toronto-based Steam Whistle Brewing has a fleet of vintage vans, like this ’56 Dodge, bringing their “pure pilsner” to our northern neighbors (since not everyone can get to Toronto).

This is one of five bottle cars designed by the Worthington Brewery in the early 1920s… because nothing says a bottle of beer like – a bottle of beer on wheels.  These bottle cars are no longer on roads in England, but no one who’s seen one will ever forget it.

“As Seen on TV”, the Coors Light Silver Bullet train is actually two trailers complete with a mobile museum, as well as a Coors Light Lounge where passengers can play foosball and video games.

There’s no mistaking Bushy Ale’s beer-mobile on the streets of the Isle of Man, not with its signature “Rudolph nose”.   (Maybe that beer bottle on wheels is an English thing.)

When Tempo Automakers introduced “The Matador” in 1949, Warsteiner Beer took the opportunity to bring their beer (or “bier”, if you want to be precise) to the thirsty people of Germany.  This car is one of just 1,362 produced by Tempo (if you’re wondering why you’ve never seen a Tempo Matador).

Now if you’re a van person, you might recognize that as a 1966 Chevy P36.  But if you’re a BEER person, you’ll recognize that set into the side of this Chevy van, are six beer taps.  Yep, the van IS the bar – and if you’re anywhere near Boston, you might see the Tapped Beer Truck.  In fact, you could even rent the Tapped Beer Truck (and your six favorite beers are what go into the kegs on the other side of that van.

But it does make more than great beer to make a great beer truck.  Some of us may be fueled by beer on occasion, but these trucks are fueled by gasoline and diesel.   Cheers.
