Big Blue Van


I'm not much a beer drinker but I do admire the fancy draft pulls that I see at restaurants.  I was sitting at the bar at Gertrude's at the Desert Botanical Garden when I spotted the Big Blue Van pull.  That Grand Canyon pull is quite elaborate but, the blue van caught my eye.

It didn't entice me to try the beer but I did order the dessert.  A bowl full of doughnut holes with three great dipping sauces, smoked dark chocolate (yum), lime curd (smooth) and salted caramel (slurp).  Yes, I ate them all.

Very striking blue van beer pull! Though those doughnut holes are what caught my eye:)

I don't drink beer, but the tap pull handles do appear to be good point-of-sale advertising.

I guess I'm not up on beers but I have never heard of the Blue Van. Those are some fancy pulls they have there. Looks like they have some good food too.

I'm not a drinker either, so I don't know these labels... I can see why you'd like the doughnut holes!

I must admit I have not paid that much attention to beer handle pulls. But I must go to Gertrude's for those doughnuts. ( I do like beer so maybe a glass of the Blue Van also)

I like the one with the skull :-)

I'd forget the beer, too, for those donut holes and sauces. Well, I'd probably try the Big Blue Van beer - wonder what kind of beer that pull dispensed?

Well, I'd go for a nice cold pint of Big Blue Van! I've never had a real sweet tooth but do like a good beer.

I like a nice amber ale or a dark Porter but I'm not familiar with any of the brands in your photo. The doughnut holes and their dipping sauces look fab!

I would have gone for the donuts too.

Desserts are impossible to resist. The blue van draft pull is hard to miss.
