If you have ever dreamt of a magical truck driving the streets handing out frosty cold ones instead of ice cream treats then Heathen Brewing is making dreams come true. Last weekend the Heathen brew crew roamed the streets of Vancouver, Washington in a red sprinter van not creepily at all while doing no-contact beer sales…and they are doing it again, this Saturday, April 25th the beer truck is hitting out north to Ridgefield and Battle Ground, WA neighborhoods for “Ice Cream Truck-style delivery” from 4-7pm.
Southwest Washington neighborhoods can listen for the sounds of hyped-up ice cream truck music each Saturday for the time being. Not only will the truck play the familiar sounds of the treat-carrying trucks of our childhood, but production manager Danny McCabe says the van’s playlist will include thirst-inducing favorites like Beer by Reel Big Fish, There’s a Tear In My Beer by Hank Williams, Jr. and a healthy dose of Metallica. “Cuz why not,” says McCabe.
The routes will be covered by two vans – one white, one red. Both will be very noticeable with open van doors and staff geared up to safely deliver beer in a no contact operation. There’s no cash accepted. Only cards. Folks approaching the truck can order from the menu and swipe their card without contact. The gloved and sanitized crew member will hand off the beer or walk it to the porch, if asked.
