How Kombi Keg Operates
Gertie is a unique and versatile mobile bar ready to serve your BYO alcoholic drinks. We have 6 taps ready to serve your choice of beer, cider, wine, cocktails, soft drinks etc. Gertie comes with 3 drinks tubs at the rear of the van, filled with ice to keep your other bottled drinks cold. We can provide staff to pour the drinks for you, or your guests can help themselves! When your event is over, we pack up and drive out, simple as that!
If your event or catering company supply the drinks we can work directly with them to ensure your event goes off without a hitch!

It's the details that make the difference
The surfboard bench – this is the original and classic bench of the Kombi Keg, but we understand that not everyone wants the surfboard and that some events, prefer a classier option, so we have a rustic wooden bench option.
Pop-up flat screen TV so you can watch the game in style, show movies, photos, logos, live TV etc. Power hook up required to operate the TV.
We will make sure you're set up for success
Day of logistics
Delivery of Kombi Keg to the venue, hook up and set the pressures of the kegs and test the flow. We then leave you to it and return to pick up the Kombi after the event, also, we can provide bartenders if you require – it couldn’t be easier!
The story behind Gertie
Gertie is a lover of travel and parties, she was originally owned by Ellie, a girl who was in a girl band which travelled the East Coast of Australia. Gertie in her day was originally painted pink/purple with number the plate GER-7IE hence her nickname “Gertie”. After a few years when the band members moved in different directions, she was sold to her second owner Bella who loved Kombis. Bella’s Grandfather grew up in Germany where he was a Kombi mechanic who worked in a German VW factory. Bella had her heart set on owning a 75-78 model Kombi, as these were the years that her Grandfather worked in the VW factory. Gertie is a 78 model Kombi which Bella drove daily until Kombi Keg became the proud new owners.
Kombi Keg restored and kegged Gertie where she is now the life of the party in and around North Queensland with Dean & Tina ready to get your party started.

The Kombi Keg is hired out as a ‘dry hire’ with no alcohol included. As we don’t carry a liquor license we cannot directly purchase alcohol for you, but we can help you organise your kegs and drinks, and pick them up and return them to the supplier after the event. We have connections to local breweries and beer companies who can put together great packages for Kombi Keg customers. On the FAQs page you will also find a basic guide on how many kegs you will need for your event. We also have 19l kegs that can be used for home brew, soft drink, and water. Just let us know when you book what you need and we will make it happen.
