The Bottle Truck

Scroll Down and Take a Look at Our Custom Refurb of “The Bottle Truck”…

The Story:  It was originally built in the 1960’s in England and designed as a Miller High Life beer bottle on wheels.  We tore out the interior rear section of the bottle and designed and fabricated a platform for kegs and a conveyor system through the bottle neck to deliver the kegs.  We installed a bulkhead with a sliding door to enclose the rear area and installed insulation and refrigeration to keep the beer cool.  After painting and decaling the exterior we installed four taps on the driver’s side so the beer can flow!
