In sunny San Diego, Corbin O'Reilly is the proud owner of a fleet of Tap Trucks, including a baby blue and pink Bev Bus. Corbin states that “while every vehicle I convert into a Tap Truck is epic, these Bev Buses are so old school and charming”. With summer in full swing Corbin has been booking events left and right putting these show-stoppers on full display.

With such a rich history behind Volkswagen Vans, it’s no wonder these sweet Bev Buses are getting booked out! Although most people today recognize these beauties as a VW Van, its true given name is actually the Volkswagen Transporter. These beauties first became a possibility in 1947 by Ben Pon, a Dutch businessman who was inspired by the look of the VW Plattenwagen and was looking for a new and innovative way he could make Volkswagen models more appealing to consumers. A few years later after Pon drew up the designs and went through a series of prototypes, the official Volkswagen Bus was released in 1949! 

The Volkswagen Van release quickly boomed and swept the country off of its feet. Volkswagen ran its first generation, otherwise known as the T1 models, from 1949-1967. The United States quickly adopted the vehicle in 1950. With five more generations to follow, these vans captured the hearts of many and are still incredibly relevant today! The VW largely attracted a more outdoorsy crowd and buyers in America looking for an alternative to vehicles with roaring horsepower coming from Detroit's big auto assembly lines. It’s boxy look and customizability appealed to people going against the grain in the countercultural movements of the 1960s. This led to the famous nickname we all know and love today: “hippie van”! If you were looking for a fun vintage touch to your next event, the Volkswagen Van is the perfect addition to the party! 

Volkswagen vans make the perfect companion for all as it is a very customizable vehicle that can truly be modified in many ways. Thus, making for the perfect introduction of a Tap Truck Bev Bus! This vehicle’s insane versatility is what led Corbin O’Reilly to make his dreams into a reality with a sweet VW Bus that pours beer right out of the side!
