    Get the Mule Keg!!!

    We worked with Jody in planning our August 2021 (originally 2020) Kelowna wedding. She went above and beyond to reassure us through the ups and downs, planning and re-planning of our big (smaller) day! She was very responsive, her team was a crowd favourite, and most importantly: she kept our guests hydrated! I definitely recommend the Moscow Mule Cocktail keg (we emptied that one!)

    Great Experience

    We had the tapped truck at our wedding - they are an amazing team. They went out of their way to get the type of beer we requested (we were quite picky as we have a lot of beer snob friends), and had excellent communication from booking up to the wedding. Our guests loved the truck! A lot of our friends took pictures and commented on the something special that it added to our big day. Thank you so much!

    Tapped Events's reply:

    Danielle, we had such a blast helping you guys celebrate your big day! It gave us the warm fuzzies to be included in your party. Wishing you guys all the best!

    What an incredible experience!

    What an incredible experience! We hired the Tapped Truck to cater our parent's 40th Wedding Anniversary party and it was the hit of the night. Rob and Jody took care of every detail so all we had to do was select our beverages and pay the bill. Jody and Rob are so knowledgable, they made recommendations, and we had endless options when it came to what we could pour from the truck.
    It's also not just about the truck showing up and pouring drinks, Rob and Jody made sure our guests always had a drink in their hand, they engaged with our guests about the truck as people wanted to know all about it. People are still talking about the Tapped Truck at the party a year later and we would not hesitate to hire them again in the future.

    Tapped Events's reply:

    How sweet was it to roll up with a truck that your dad had fond memories of! We had such a delight serving your family and celebrating such an epic love story in such a charming garden setting. Much love and gratitude!

    Fun, entertaining, and serves are darn good beer !

    Y’all if you haven’t been following These guys on line you need to start! They offer the most unique alcohol service you’ve ever seen. Great for any event: weddings, b days, reunions, corporate, or for a good old fashioned summer party! I’ve had the pleasure of being at several festivals and a Canada day party they hosted, always a laugh, a smile and good pour from some local craft beer of course;)

    Tapped Events's reply:

    Shucks, thanks so much Stacey! We really appreciate your kind words. We can't wait to celebrate all that is craft with you again soon.

    A Groovy Time Getting Tapped

    Tapped Events offers a variety of beverage party wagons for events. We rented the smaller cart "Chuck" for my husband's 60th family birthday gathering. Jody and Rob helped with the beer and cider orders, delivered the cart to our house, set everything up and showed us how to operate it. It was a smooth experience from start to finish and it was the hit of the party. I would definitely recommend having Tapped Events at any celebration including weddings!

Hey y'all! I'm Jody: the fierce female founder and Chief Fun Officer at Tapped Events.

When you're lookin for something COMPLETELY different for your big day, we've got you covered! My husband and I created Tapped Events when we saw how tough it was to have a kegger...a classy kegger! We LOVE craft beer & cider, we LOVE supporting local and we wanted to be able to do all of those things at special events throughout the Okanagan.

So when you're ready to #gettapped drop us a line, we can't wait to hear from you!

I'm Rob. The man behind the woman...and the bar!

When Jody came up with the idea of buying an old truck to serve beer, I thought: "how can I lose?! ...A cool old truck AND beer...sounds like a match made in heaven!"

As the details guy, I measure 3 times and cut once. I manage the books and I pour ice cold beers. And of course, I love what I do and who I get to do it with.

The Tapped Truck

There's somethin' bout a truck - and there's certainly somethin bout me!

I'm Jewels, a 1967 Ford pick-up truck and I know I turn heads. Adults oggle at me, I know I'm nostalgic and I always create a stir. I love how people fall in love with me...especially when they see my taps!

Everyone says that I'm better lookin in person...they're probably right!
