Weird Bike Wednesday - The Beer Trike

The Beer Trike from Coaster Pedicabs
This beer trike is made by Coaster Pedicab in Bonner, Montana. With it you can have two half kegs on tap. The tap handles have recycled bicycle chain around the outside. If you are wondering why you can only have two beers on tap, keep in mind that a full half keg weighs approximately 160 pounds. A brewery asked them come up with a bike that would let them serve beer, and this is what they came up with. If you want to buy one of these (or any other Coaster Pedicab bike), we can assist you. Just be prepared for a little sticker shock. They sell for nearly 7,000 dollars.

The video below is an interview with the Coaster Pedicab CPO (Chief Pedicab Officer) and their Vice President of Miscellaneous Stuff. The beer trike in the video is an early prototype. Note that the tap handles don't have bicycle chain. They have a small cog at the top instead.
