Frequently Asked Questions
We do not supply alcohol as laws in Canada do not allow the sale of alcohol from mobile trailers. As host you will be responsible for purchasing so that alcohol can be legally dispensed at your event.
Once we know more about your event we will provide you with a shopping list based on the number of people attending and an estimation of typical consumption based on your particular guests.
You will need to get a Special Occasions Permit (SOP) only if you are holding your event on public property (E.g. Town Hall, Church, Event Venue, etc.). If you are holding the event on private property (E.g. Backyard, Cabin, Property, Farm, etc.) a SOP is not required. For more information and to apply online, please visit https://www.agco.ca/alcohol/special-occasion-permits-private-event. We are always happy to help with the application process if needed!

We need a standard 110v plug with a dedicated 15 amp circuit to operate the draft, coffee and refrigeration systems. We will work with your venue to ensure we have the power we need to operate smoothly. For residential events, we have a generator that will handle all of our needs.
Ray’s On the Dell has a kegerator with one tap. When pouring from a draft system, the special blend of gases we use help ensure a quality and freshness that you cannot accomplish with bottled or canned beverages. Further there is much less waste and recycling required using a keg system and it helps us keep our overall footprint as low as possible. We currently offer one of the following; Draft Beer OR nitro-infused Cold Brew. We are open to work with you if you would prefer another option.
To reserve Ray’s On The Dell, we ask for a 30% deposit along with a signed contract. The remaining balance is due no later than 7 days prior to your event date. If your event is short notice (less than 30 days before event date), the full payment outlined in the contract is due upfront.
We love to serve draft beer OR cold brew in a keg along with red, white and sparkling wine. We can also work with you to create a Signature Big Batch (self serve) Cocktail for your event. Send us an email and we can build your drink menu from the ground up and ensure you have enough alcohol to keep all your guests happy.
We offer 3 – 5 types of specialty coffees including, but not limited to lattes, cappuccinos, drip coffee, macchiatos, cold brew and iced coffee options. Should you like to include coffee service at your event, we will work with you to create a bespoke menu that can also include alcohol add -ons such as Baileys, Rum Chata etc.
The first 50kms of travel are free. After 50kms we charge $0.80/km.
Absolutely and we encourage you to do so. Should you like to include flowers, balloons, streamers, banners, decals etc. we can work you to design and quote a plan.
