About Us

The inspiration for The Traveling Tap can be traced back to a moment Tim experienced during his Navy days in Norfolk. At a beach event, he witnessed an extraordinary trailer that unfolded into a mobile bar equipped with a refrigerated tap system and dance floor, leaving an enduring impact.

Fast forward a decade or two, and the paths of Tim and Amber intersect. While attending outdoor events, concerts, and weddings, the sight of jockey boxes and hand pumps triggered a discomfort in Tim. He recognized that these devices failed to maintain the correct temperature, resulting in warm beer, excessive waste, and long lines. These events were upscale, not casual gatherings where a jockey box or hand pump sufficed. Tim knew there had to be a superior solution.

Consistently, Tim passionately articulated these issues and championed a better approach, continually recounting the Norfolk trailer story. In her direct manner, Amber issued a challenge: either take action ... or zip it.

This challenge marked the inception of The Traveling Tap.
