Project Spotlight: Aspen Grove Center 20’ Container Bar (BeerCan Heavy)

Project Background

Aspen Grove Center, a popular outdoor mall outside Denver Colorado, approached ROXBOX with the goal of building a modular shipping container bar for their brand new beer garden. Enter the “BarBox”! Built out of a 20’ upcycled shipping container, this beautiful BeerCan Heavy serves as the centerpiece to Aspen Grove’s beer garden “The BarBox Garden” and is run by one of Colorado’s most iconic breweries, Breckenridge Brewery. With three service windows, a 10-tap draft system, and a walk-in cooler that can hold upwards of 20 kegs, the BarBox will be cranking out drinks all year long to beer garden guests. With a three-tone paint job, custom vinyl wrapping, and an Edison bulb-lit “BarBox” sign on top, the BarBox is truly a unique modular amenity to the complex that catches the attention of all patrons (and has become a popular feature on social media).

The mobile/temporary classified BarBox serves as a shining example of the benefits of choosing a ROXBOX product. With a faster turnaround time and cheaper price tag than a custom bar design, the BeerCan Heavy is one of our most popular shipping container bars and one of the fastest products we can build. With multiple revenue-generating windows and a built-in walk-in cooler, the modular BeerCan Heavy is designed to crank out drinks fast. Efficient, strong ROI, durable and eye-catching – this turnkey shipping container bar generates tons of revenue and is always the talk of the town.

Since the Aspen Grove team chose a standard, predesigned ROXBOX product (while also including add-ons that made the unit their own and match the Breckenridge Brewing aesthetic), we were able to move through all of re-construction Phase 1 (Design & Planning) + Phase 2 (Construction Documents) within weeks. Phase 3 (Construction & Production) of this BeerCan Heavy unit took just under 5 weeks. Since Aspen Grove Center is just down the road from ROXBOX’s facility in Denver, Phase 4 (Delivery and Installation) only took a few hours. Aspen Grove was then able to immediately open the beer garden that week and begin capturing revenue!

Client Testimonial

Josh Kalkhorst – General Manager at Gerrity Group

This journey with ROXBOX, from the day we met Davin at the shop to see the facility to the day our container bar was dropped, was really impressive. They helped us define our vision for this container and then brought it to life in ways we couldn’t have expected. Their excitement and enthusiasm for our project was next level and that’s what made this partnership and our experience so much fun!”
