Frequently asked questions
Is this even legal?
While we wait for various municipal government to allow craft beer trucks in the park and on street corners, we will do what we love and can: Weddings, private events (Bridal showers, bachelor and bachelorette parties), corporate functions, fundraisers, concerts, private venue experiential marketing, and local festival beer gardens!
NOTE: The client (that’s your awesome self!) is responsible for acquiring a Special Events/Occasion Permit & alcohol through the AGCO and licensed entities. We can help walk you through what is needed for the (online) paperwork and any questions! The SOP can be applied for online by clicking here.
Is The Wheeled Brew insured?
Yes! We carry a $2 Million Commercial General Liability policy and Party Alcohol Liability policy, in combination with Smart Serve certified bartenders!
What drinks can you serve?
From the taps we can serve your supplied beer, cider, red and white wine/prosecco.

What are the dimensions of Howard,Hank, and Willie your mobile bar & tap trucks?
Howard the 1940 Ford Panel Truck is approximately 19’ long, 5.5’ wide and is a powerful 6’ high. Any indoor venue requires adequate entry and exit clearance to get Howard into the venue!
Hank carries similar dimensions! Our usual setup carries a 10' x 20' footprint!
What other requirements do you have?
Howard’s mobility allows us to get into many spaces, but for safety and proper setup reasons, we would love proper space (see dimensions). Howard does not do stairs, and needs flat, dry ground for proper service and safety!
If power is available, it is always a bonus as some of our decor package extras require power. If you're unsure, feel free to connect us with your planner or the venue! We can also provide a generator if need be!
50 KM of travel is included in each package with anything over that being charged at $0.75/km.
What is the typical package price and what is included?
The average wedding reception costs $1750 (without alcohol as that is supplied by you), but packages fluctuate from $1000-$4500 depending on requirements and requests. Please contact us for exact estimates!
Is there a deposit for The Wheeled Brew's services?
To secure your date, we require a non-refundable booking deposit of 30% (of total service cost). We are booking for 2021!
Do you only go outdoors?
Our mobile bars go whereever they can fit (indoors and out) and our team goes whereever you need! We've been to venues all over the province that already feature indoor bars, which our team can also utilize.
Do you only serve beer?
Absolutely not! We have the ability to run the entire bar with your supplied beer to wine and liquor. We aren't limited by the brands you select, and can utilize your favourite to build the beverage menu of your dreams!
How far in advance should we book our wedding bartending service?
We book up 12 months+ in advance of a season because of the uniqueness of our service. To avoid dissapointment, please reach out early to secure your mobile bar!
Do you provide the alcohol?
We do not provide the alcohol but will gladly consult on how much you will need, menu choices, and what works best for your guests!
