February 2021 - suffering from the (2nd) lockdown blues, yearning for a crisp, freshly poured pint, an idea begins to manifest itself . . . Let's bring the pints to the people! From a horsebox, a great big black and orange horse box! That doesn't sound ridiculous at all

 

March 2021 - So we bought a horsebox, it's quite Rice, ahem . . . nice. But we had a vision to make it nicer 

 

WORK BEGINS. WE STARTED BY TENDING TO THE TIRED BODY OF THE OLD WORKHORSE; REFURBISHING THE CHASSIS, REPLACING THE FLOORS AND ADDING IN THE SERVING HATCHES

 

WITH ALL WOUNDS PATCHED UP AND HATCHES IN PLACE, WE TURNED TO GIVING IT A MAKEOVER, IT HADN'T HAD A CHANGE OF CLOTHES CHANGE IN 60 YEARS!

 

APRIL 2021 - ONTO THE INTERIOR, IN WENT THE COUNTERTOPS, WE NEVER THOUGHT THAT OLD SCAFFOLD BOARDS WOULD CLEAN UP SO WELL

 

NEXT UP WE CAREFULLY FITTED THE BEATING HEART OF TAPPED PONY, OUR BESPOKE BEER SYSTEM. TRIED AND TESTED OF COURSE!

 

THEN WE WERE ON TO THE TECHNICAL NITTY GRITTY WITH THE ELECTRICS AND PLUMBING. THANKFULLY ALL TESTED AND WORKING!

 

MAY 2021 - LAST BUT NOT LEAST WE SAT THE UNITS, SCREWED EVERYTHING IN, GAVE IT A FRESH LICK OF PAINT, SLAPPED ON THE LOGO. . . AND VOILA! OVER A FEW MONTHS OF HARD GRAFT AND THROUGH BLOOD, SWEAT AND BEERS, TAPPED PONY WAS BORN AND READY TO QUENCH THE THIRST OF THE MASSES!
