Our Story The history behind Kombi Keg and it’s beginnings.
On the 7th of August 2015, with a dream of creating a mobile bar out of a Kombi Van, founder and co-owner of ‘Kombi Keg’ Phil Hoken purchased a 1976 VW Kombi van from Surf St Port Macquarie, NSW, Australia. This was the beginning of Kombi Keg.
In his spare time, outside running 3 other businesses and spending time with his wife and 6 month old daughter, Phil stripped and restored the Kombi van. There were many 2am mornings in the shed with a few mates who helped with the process (and a lot of pizza consumed). Then, on the 21st of November 2015 for a good mates birthday, ‘Kombi Keg’ was launched!
Phil decided to post a picture of the finished product on Facebook. To date that picture has been shared over 35,000 times and in less than 12 months the ‘Kombi Keg’ Facebook page gained over 65,000 likes and one of our videos received over 3.2 million views!
After this astonishing result Phil began buying Kombi Vans from all over Australia and restoring them for future franchisees. Kombi Keg now has over 35 franchises world wide, in Australia, America, South Africa, United Kingdom, France, Switzerland, New Zealand and Indonesia.

How We Operate More Than A Bar
Kombi Keg is a mobile bar with a difference. Fitted with 6 beer taps, a chilled boot area for wine or soft drinks and a TV to display your choice of media. Our team can be on hand to pour for you, or you can let your guests help themselves. Once the party is over, we just pack up and drive out. It’s that simple.
While every Kombi Keg operates individually, we all share the same passion, to make your event as memorable and unique as you always dreamed it would be!
