Isuzu Commercial Truck of America Inc. announced the development of a new craft beer truck with Summit Truck Body. The truck was showcased during the 2024 Craft Brewers Conferences in Las Vegas back in April. Isuzu’s Ultimate Craft Beer Truck debuted in 2019 and has grown more popular over the years, it says. Shaun Skinner, president of Isuzu, agrees that this truck is a great delivery tool and marketing piece for small businesses. “This has been one of the most intriguing products we have been behind,” he said in a statement. “Most people associate work trucks with box trucks, sweepers and dumps, but the Ultimate Craft Beer Truck is synonymous with delivering fun. The customers that have bought them have enjoyed a lot of success and we constantly get questions about the truck and if there’s one available. It remains an exciting product.” Isuzu worked with known body builder in the Pacific Northwest, Summit Truck Body. “Collaborating with Isuzu on this project has been really exciting,” said Ted Croce, president of Summit, in a statement. “It has challenged us to think about how we engineer our insulated body for a new market, make it exciting and maximize the features and convenience for those serving from it.” The truck starts with a Class 5 diesel-powered Isuzu NRR. Its chassis provides plenty of payload for weekly deliveries and does not require a commercial driver’s license to operate. Isuzu says that, similar to a mullet hairstyle, the chassis is the business in the front and the body is the party in the back.
