I get told off if I don’t blog frequently enough so here is some stuff about our Mobile Bar build 😉
Building a mobile bar is something I’ve wanted to do for a good while though we got a kick up the arse from Keighley Worth Valley Railway so we could be one of the brewery bars at Ingrow Station as part of their yearly Beer Festival. We will be in good company with our friends from Old Spot Brewery along with Freedom Brewery, the full beer listings are here.
Building the bar has been fun, we purchased most the parts for the bars from CFBS in Keighley, I had previously bought the scaffolding from www.scaffolding-direct.co.uk and the stainless steel plate was laser cut for us by RMD Fabrications in Silsden, a few of the keg taps came from eBay and a few smaller parts which I already had were from EWL in Keighley too.
I designed the Banner sides for the front bar and got the printed by Fat Cow Signs on at Hawkcliffe corner, so doing our best to keep things local.
We can currently have 6 keg beers and 2 Handpulled beers on the go with this setup, at a later date I will fit a Glass Rinser so we can refresh festival-goers glasses with clean, chilled water before pouring another beer and there is still room on our chiller unit for 3 more kegs should we ever want to expand on what we’ve got.
We obviously need to give this a trial run before the beer festival later in the month, so either Friday 6th or Saturday 14th *Probably both!* we will have an extra few Keg beers on the go in the brewery. Don’t forget on the Friday we also have The Courtyard Dairy from Settle doing their amazing cheeses and Edward St Bakery from Saltaire with all manner of baking in the brewhouse, then on the Saturday we have Casa Espresso from Shipley who will be doing their coffee thing along with our regular foodies The Lemon Tree.
