It was a fall Wednesday.... Sitting in the airport the week of our annual RV trip to Penn State to enjoy tailgating and football. We joke we are professional tailgaters, always adding to our list of games and gadgets we bring for the weekend. Then it hit me... "Our tailgate needs a bar!"
I got home and quickly went to work, crudely attaching a piece of wood to the top of some wire shelving, stuck a Penn State decal on top, added a few coats of polyurethane and just like that an idea, and a company, was born. It was an idea generated out of a desire to throw a tailgate party people would remember. A mission to take what was always an awesome weekend, tailgating setup, and event to another level.
That simple mission has not changed - it's just more specific: "Create a pub like atmosphere anywhere by providing a hand crafted mobile bar that becomes the centerpiece for any event and promotes comradery among friends, family, and even strangers"
