Twenty-eight-year-old Fernando Lopez has changed the michelada game forever.
The L.A. native, whose family runs the James Beard Award-winning Oaxacan restaurant Guelaguetza, refurbished an old Volkswagon bus and completely transformed it into a portable michelada bar. The MicheMobil parks in backyards throughout Los Angeles, casting its powerful spell on partygoers through the power of the Bloody Mary-esque Mexican beer cocktail.
The bus has four beer taps—one which is reserved for Guelaguetza’s spicy mix—as well as an on-board Sonos, which lets you control music from anywhere in your party. “If you want an actual DJ, we can definitely hook you up with one of our many homies we work with,” says Lopez in an interview with West Coast Munchies editor Javier Cabral.
Lopez talks about the inspiration behind the next-level party bus:
If you’re ready to get up-close and personal with the portable michelada mobile, you can rent the bus on the MicheMobil website. Don’t live in L.A.? You can buy the award-winning Guelaguetza michelada mix online and turn up at home.
