Frequently Asked Questions
What the heck is Tapped Events?
It all started with Jewels. That gorgeous 1967 Ford Pickup had us at hello, and once we fixed her all up, inside and out—and decked her out in a cherry red finish that would make any gentleman blush, Jewels was ready to receive her 6 taps and launch the Tapped Events experience you see here today.
Our fleet has since expanded to include Dixie, an elegantly converted horse trailer with a cedar bar and 4 taps, and our boy Chuck, a cedar-clad trolley with 2 taps ready to charm any event's guests.
Tapped Events is your pop-up tapped bar specialists offering full and self-served service and equipment rentals throughout the Okanagan. Anything that can be put in a keg can be put on a Tapped Fleet member to help your next event #gettapped.

Where can the Tapped Fleet go?
In terms of location—What did you have in mind? Our primary service locations are in the Northern and Central Okanagan, BUT we do love a good road trip if you have something interesting in mind. Just shoot us a message for a customized quote.
As to -where- our fleet can go during an event ...
Jewels and Dixie have no running water or electricity requirements and can go anywhere our vehicles, and the rigs can fit.
Chuck is a little more connected and needs to be within 8' of a standard electrical outlet.
How much does it cost to have Tapped Events attend my event?

We offer many customizable options, from equipment-only rental to full-meal-deal service packages. Visit our
Meet The Fleet page for each rig's starting price.
Can we provide our own bartenders?
Hiring Jewels, the Tapped Truck? Simply put, no. Hauling kegs on and off a truck is serious business, and to ensure the best possible Tapped experience, we require you to hire our friendly & qualified bartenders for any event with Jewels.
Dixie, the Tapped Trailer, and Chuck, the Tapped Trolley can both be hired without a bartender.
How many taps do you have?
Jewels has 6 taps, Dixie has 2 taps, and little Chucky boy has 2.
All of them chill the goods and can be dressed up to fit any event.
What can you serve?
A better question is, what can't we serve?
While a cold BC Craft beer will always hold the key to our hearts, we know that every event likes to sip on something a little different. Our versatile tap system can handle pretty much any drink that can be stored in a keg.
We're talking about everything from cider, wine prosecco, alcohol-free soda, and mixers to premium custom cocktails via our preferred local partners.
Reach out to us for a list of all the locally sourced bevies that we love.
Do you provide alcohol?
We bring a truckload of fun, but we can't provide alcohol.
We serve the beverages you provide, and we can definitely help with delivery, but liquor laws are sticky. When you book your event to #gettapped, we will go over what you need to know and plan for in advance of your event.
Are you licensed? Do you provide a permit?
We are not licensed and we do not provide the permit: but we are experts in this space and can put you on the right path as you plan your special event to #gettapped!
What kind of events does Tapped do?
This is one of those, and if you build it, they will come situations.
We LOVE love, and we LOVE to party. Add in some of your favorite people, and we'd say you have an event perfect to #gettapped. Regardless of the size of your event, there is a
fleet member fit to serve the suds.
BUT if you want a list, let's go with; Weddings, retirements, birthdays, gender reveals, family reunions, quinceaneras, elopements, bbq cookouts, welcome homes, celebrations of life, and any other reason people gather in a room and cheer—we can be there.
