Hop Box founder Ben Smith has this to say about about beer: “For the vast majority of people, drinking beer occupies a place on the podium of lifeâ€™s most pleasurable pursuits.”
To that end, the London-based Smith has converted a horse trailer into a traveling pub that dispenses craft beers to festival goers and urban quaffers. “For too long, weâ€™ve stood idly by, supping our way through our favorite brews produced by others and served by others,” says Smith. “Weâ€™re now ready to make our own contribution.” To track his trailer’s location, go to The Hop Box.
N.B.: This is our Block Party issue, and every day this week we’ll be spotlighting an inspired food or drinks business on wheels.
