How far in advance do I need to book my event?

Due to California state law, all events require an alcohol catering permit (Don’t worry! It’s only $25 and we take care of securing the permit for you.) All permit applications must be submitted a MINIMUM of three weeks in advance. In addition to the permitting, there are certain seasons and times of year that are busier than usual. To start, contact us to see if the trailer is available on the date of your event.

How much does the Bubble Tap Trailer cost?

The total cost will depend on the number of guests you anticipate at your event. We charge a flat fee for rental of the trailer. The rental fee includes three hours of service. Additional hours are available for purchase. We also require a two keg minimum that is purchased through one of our approved vendors. Please contact us for additional information about pricing.

How do we estimate how many kegs we will need for our event?
One keg contains 26 bottles of bubbly or roughly 130 glasses. The standard catering calculation for alcoholic beverages at an event is one drink per person, per hour. However, certain variables, such as additional beverages being served (e.g. beer, wine, liquor, etc), will affect how much bubbly you should order. We can tell you we tend to be quite popular at events 🙂 One of our expert representatives will be able to help you figure out how many kegs you will need.
Do you provide the alcohol?

Due to state liquor laws, we are unable to sell alcohol directly. However, we have set up relationships with approved vendors and will coordinate the purchasing of any alcohol on your behalf.

Do you offer tastings?

Yes! Taste is subjective and we want to ensure you are happy with the bubbly being served. Tastings are reserved for committed events, so once the contract is signed and deposit is made, your Tap Trailer Co. representative will coordinate a tasting with you.

How much space does your trailer need?

Our beautiful, Bubble Tap Trailer is about 13 feet long, 9 feet high and about 7 feet deep. Add a couple of feet in each direction for maneuvering and we’re good to go! Our parallel parking skills are quite impressive if we do say so ourselves.

Do you put out a tip jar?

You have the option of leaving a 20% tip on the pre-tax total if you do not want a tip jar left out. Otherwise, our bubble bartenders will tastefully (no pun intended) display their tip jar.

Do you have insurance?

We do have insurance for our trailer and employees. However, it does not extend to you, your guests, the venue or any other aspect of your event. Event insurance is available for a nominal amount and we highly suggest getting it! Ask your Tap Trailer Co. representative for more information. We would be happy to point you in the right direction.
