A Slopeside Taproom: The Traveling ‘BeerCat’ Is Back This Weekend

This snow-traveling pub is bringing suds to the slopes — literally.

The BeerCat is one of 10 Barrel Brewing’s famous mini-pubs … and by “mini,” we do mean mini. The compact taproom, built by snowboard legend Mike Basich in 2019, lives inside a custom 1987 Spryte snowcat.

Think snowcat + beer = BeerCat, what 10 Barrel calls “the ultimate mountain beer delivery system.”

For the full experience, take this four-part virtual tour or, even better, visit in person. The 10 Barrel BeerCat will be posted up at Eldora Mountain, Colo., this weekend.

You can find the BeerCat back at Eldora on these dates:

  • April 1-3
  • April 8-10
  • April 15-17

Runtime: 4 minutes
