When you think of Mazda, car models are what come to mind (obviously). But ever-so surprisingly, the global carmaker has unveiled a new kind of invention: a travelling, towable pub that goes to show you really can bring the cold bevs wherever you go. Better yet, it’s making its way up the east coast of Australia soon so you can go check it out whilst enjoying a free frothy. The event was meant to go ahead earlier this year but was postponed due to the floods. Now, new dates in July have been confirmed.
Made over several months by a team of tradies, The Mazda BT-50 Pub That Trade Made has a three-tonne towing capacity, featuring a custom-built bar that brings it to life. This “travelling pub” will be starting its journey in Melbourne and then heading up to Lennox Head and finally Brisbane. Parking up in its set locations, they’ll be slinging free Quiet XPA non-alcoholic beer from Heaps Normal. This means you can enjoy a free afternoon or after-work bevvie: just without the booze.
Who is Heaps Normal?
Heaps Normal is one of Australia’s leading booze-free beer brands. Their Quiet XPA is a national bestseller and has been an Australian winner in the World Beer Awards. Read up more about Heaps Normal via our feature article on how the brand is aiming to grow non-alcoholic drinking culture.
