A South Bristol wine and beer store will be lifting spirits as it goes on the road with a mobile bar thanks to a grant from the West of England Combined Authority led by Metro Mayor Dan Norris.
The Metro Mayor visited Alpha Bottle Shop & Tap, where owners Emily Penney and Mike Fenlon showed him the mobile catering equipment they have bought with the help of the grant.
Their brand new mobile bar will mean they can dispense up to four beers, and many other drinks kept chilled by a new fridge, to cater for social events in community venues and homes across Bristol and beyond.
Metro Mayor Dan Norris said: “For such a long time so many social plans were put on ice, but as more people venture out we’re reminded of the joy of getting out, winding down, and having our spirits lifted with friends and families.
“Cheers to Alpha Bottle Shop & Tap! This grant is a perfect tonic to help them cater for social events out and about in communities across the West of England. It was interesting to find out about future plans to meet growing demand for this new mobile service.”
