The Origin of Rustic Taps

On a scorching summer day in 2016, Dave and Jessica Golden found inspiration at a neighbor’s graduation party. With temperatures nearing 90°F, the desire for a cold beer led to a visionary idea. As the jingle of an ice cream truck filled the air, Dave turned to Jess and uttered the words, “Wouldn’t it be great if that was a beer truck?”

And so, Rustic Taps and Catering was born, evolving from a small venture catering weekend events to a business transforming weddings, concerts, festivals, and corporate gatherings.

Vintage Truck Fleet

The heart of Rustic Taps and Catering lies in its fleet of vintage trucks. These aren’t mere vehicles; they are transformed into mobile bars and wood-fired pizza ovens, adding character to any event. Each truck, carefully restored and equipped with top-notch equipment, creates a nostalgic and charming ambiance.
