Meet Eddie...

Eddie was newly built by the talented team of Spitfire Vintage Caravans. These guys bring in the bling 🤩 so your function gets some extra attention if you know what I mean 😉

Eddie is fully equipt and can be parked almost anywhere from your driveway, back yard, under or in a shed area, open fields and almost any venue. It's 2.6 meters high, 5 meters long including tow bar and just less than 2 meters wide 🤗 


We can use any regular 10 amp power point at your private property or at a hired venue, or we can provide a generator if there is no power supply. 

Eddie has three large serving windows that are open to an impressive wooden bar, it is fully equipped with a three-door underbar drink fridge, top-quality commercial oven and an advanced Ice bank system built by the talented owner and head brewer of Edge Brewing Adam. 

There are 4 taps to serve beer, wine, cocktails and soft drinks of your choice, (yes all can be served from the taps) we put the effort in supporting the environment by buying fewer beer bottles, wine bottle and cans to prevent waste such as beer caps, wine corks, labels and more! Aiming for a greener bar service 🙏🏻 


*Hiring Eddie with any of our packages is at a discounted fee of $350 (equivalent to hiring a coolroom trailer or a very simple set up bar). We believe it is a very low price for the value and the wow effect Eddie will add to any event.


*Hiring price includes:

  • Liquor licence for the duration of the event  

  • Transportation.

  • Equipment use including the use of a high-quality ice bank system, dishwasher, very large under bar fridge and a commercial oven. 

  • Glassware and washing.

  • Insurance, on caravan and caravan use.

  • Set up and pack up.

*Hiring Eddie without any of our packages is at a fee of $740 including two bartenders to set up and serve drinks provided by you (this price does not include drinks) for the duration of 4 hours (if you wish to extend service times call or email halon@carmelioldfashioncooking.com.au).

Eddie requires special care and maintenance which we are trained in therefore we do not allow hiring Eddie alone.  

*For clients who purchased both food and drink packages or for events with 80 guests and over hiring fees are waived.

The Glassware We Use...

We proudly serve your drinks in beautifully presented unbreakable glassware which are looking like glass, feeling like glass and are completely safe for you and your guests. If your function is inside your home or out in the back yard, next to your swimming pool or even in it you will be worry free for the duration of your event 👍🏻


*If you wish to use glass please contact us.

Happily Ever Crafter...

It's Very Clear I Love Craft Beer👆🏻

Believe it when I say it I care about the beverages we serve just as much as the food we serve.


In a very brave attempt to bring the craft beer into the event industry I have contacted one of my most favourite breweries in Melbourne, Dainton Brewery which is located in Carrum Downs VIC.


I shared my little vision with them and was more than excited to be announced with a big positive yes 🙌🏻

Dainton's story begins when Dan (the owner) received a special Christmas gift -


'Using the only decent Christmas present his mum ever gave him – a homebrew kit in 2008

Dan Dainton started his brewing saga punching out some pretty horrible tasting home-brews

from his shed in Brunswick West'...

We will be serving Dainton's core range of craft beers. 


For the adventurous type, you can enquire their limited releases


Dainton's proudly earned many well-deserved awards which you can read about under each of the beers on their website.

*We have a can-do attitude if you have other drink preferences please enquire with us (a price change may occur).

Crafty Without Being Nasty...

I Insisted On Having Wine On Tap...

It took months of research, struggles and a tone of phone calls until one day a friend suggested these guys 😅

Noisy Ritual Urban Winery has a very intriguing story:
