Fire Truck Being Turned Into Beer Truck


Brewery owner Matt Greff is converting a 1975 Mercedes fire truck into a mobile 'draft truck' that can dispense beer at events and festivals. The truck has been restored, complete with lights and sirens.

Greff initially didn't want the truck when it was offered to him by a malt importer. "It had sunk into the pavement because it had been sitting there so long. I just looked at it and saw another huge project and said, 'I don't want it.'".

His wife Rene convinced him that he would regret not taking it in the future. Over the summer a cooling system, keg space and taps will be added to the vehicle in preparation for it's debut event.

  That is  
one of the best ideas ever. I hope they don't fill it with crappy beer, a project like that deserves only the finest brew.

  Where's The Damn PICTURES !!!  
Um, did someone take away all the cameras of journalists at some point?

Seems no media outlet has pics anymore, and I was looking forward to seeing this.

Well, it will BE crappy beer if the "taps" are the fire hoses! Would have to wait an hour or 13 for the suds to settle, lol

This was done on an episode of Monster Grage on the Discovery Channel a while back. It brewed and served, and would even hose down a crowd
