Scott Adams and Quentin Thiessen founded Tap Truck Okanagan, a new beverage catering company ready to serve the community.

“Our business is built on a restored 1957 Chevy panel van and ready to serve on tap craft beer, wine or cider,” said Adams.

“Nonalcoholic options such as cold brew coffee, kombucha, lemonade, iced tea, and infused water are also available. Our focus will be serving and promoting Okanagan products.”

The duo launched in May, however, Tap Truck originated in San Diego and has locations across the United States. Tap Truck Okanagan is the first location in Canada.

“With a great passion for craft beer, cider, wine and classic trucks, we decided to pair the two creating something special for any event,” said Adams.
