Carolina Taps is proud to be Union County, NC's original mobile bar service! Our unique mobile bars are ideal for occasions of any kind-- big or small. We provide an exceptional bar experience and a picture-perfect focal point, making your special event unforgettably, exclusively one of a kind.
Both of our mobile bars are equipped to serve your choice of beer, hard seltzer or cider, and our specialty kegged cocktails! Using only the freshest ingredients, our handcrafted cocktails are a staple your guests are guaranteed to love-- no artificial pre-made mixes found here.

Hands down best experience and SO happy we had them come out for our daughters birthday party to have adult beverages! They paid so much attention to detail, gave us the CUTEST custom gift, and seriously made probably the best drinks I've ever had. Everyone at the party was so impressed. I would highly recommend them and will definitely be using again!

I am an event planner and had the privilege of working with the Carolina Taps team for a recent event I planned. I was blown away with the service they provided the day of the event as well as their thoroughness throughout the planning process. I highly recommend them for your next wedding or event!

We had the best time celebrating Burn Boot Camp’s 6th Anniversary with Carolina Taps! Everyone raved about their beautiful, creative camper and their fast, professional service. Not only were we able to serve wine & beer on tap, we also had a signature beverage: “Bleed Blue” margaritas and they were awesome! Charlene and Ryan were AMAZING. So, if you are looking for a unique way to celebrate a special event, look no further! You need to contact Carolina Taps!

Charlene and Ryan are the best and the idea behind this business is epic! The trailer, service, preparation, and ability to bring a fantastic spin on service at an event. The homemade margarita's , help with choosing beers, personalized menu, and being prepared made this part of the reception planning the easiest! Looking forward to having them do two more parties this year! Thank you both for helping make our day so special.

I can't say enough good things about them! Absolutely wonderful to work with and they made sure everything (from the initial communication, to the custom beverage labels... and of course the scratch-made beverages) was beyond what we ever imagined. Highly recommend!!

Charlene joined the service industry early on as a young adult, spending her college career slingin' drinks at a casino. She received her bachelor's degree in education before obtaining a job in management where she discovered her passion for leadership and the satisfaction that comes with dedication and hard work. These things, paired with her love for creativity, inspired her to create Carolina Taps. When she's not working,
