I suppose all of my readers on Main Street know about Pedal Taverns, but without a granddaughter who lives in Milwaukee celebrating her 25th birthday, I would still be in the dark. It took my daughter, Debbie, to explain what Meghan’s celebration on a pub crawl was about. You know me well enough by now, I had to start this day watching Youtube videos and finding photographs. I insist that Senior Citizens like myself can still say, “Now this is cool!”

This is the vehicle that accommodates up to 17 people who pedal, serve, drive, and imbibe as it travels. Invented in the Netherlands as a way to promote a local tavern, its high-grade steel chassis provides a reliable, safe, and open deck ideal for socializing. With five pedal seats per side, 10 pedalers propel the vehicle up to 5 mph on flat surfaces with grades up to 6%. A bench in the rear and two additional seats provide seating for five passengers. The final spots are taken up by a driver who sits in front at the wheel and a bartender who serves revelers while standing on a low interior deck that runs the length of the vehicle. An empty wine barrel accommodates a keg of your preferred brew; it connects to a tap and overflow tray at the bar (linkage required), which has cup holders to secure beverages. The included sound system places four speakers in the bar’s overhead storage racks beneath its wooden roof, allowing you to play music from an integrated AM/FM radio that supports MP3 connectivity (required). Supports pedalers up to 300 lbs. each. Special conditions and guarantee limitations apply. 20′ L x 8′ W x 10′ H. (2,300 lbs.)
