Rustic Taps has been a labor of love for the Goldens. They are an impressive couple with an energy level that doesn’t quit. Dave met Jessica in The Forks when he was a white water raftinig guide on the Kennebec River. Jessica was wondering where to sit in the boat and Dave suggested she sit right next to him. They have been married since 2006. Dave has been a technology consultant for 24 years and with Xerox for the past 14 years. Jessica is a math and science teacher in Windham. They have two children ages 6 & 8.
Dave has a culinary background as well and came up with the idea of catering after being a guest at his neighbors daughters graduation party. He saw an opportunity and made it happen. The Goldens traveled to California to purchase the perfect Italian-made wood fired ovens for their business. They traveled the Napa Valley to find the right wines to serve. Rustic Taps pizza uses all-organic produce and most comes from local Maine farms. Bumbleroot Farm in Windham, Olivia’s Garden in New Gloucester, Backyard Farms in Madison, ME, a specialty tomato farm, all provide ingredients.
The success of Rustic Taps comes from the Goldens commitment to providing a customer-centric experience. They know people can drink beer anywhere. Their vintage and classic approach to serving customers high quality products promises to be a great addition to Fryeburg Fair. Wait til you see their retrofit ‘47 GMC, 39 Ford truck and ‘54 Chevy!
Rustic Taps provides catering and mobile bar services that range from corporate gatherings to weddings and fundraiser. They are particularly fond of helping non-profits like the Eastern Trails Alliance, Make-A-Wish and the Travis Mills Foundation. A portion of all beer sales at Fryeburg Fair will be donated to the Travis Mills Foundation serving veterans and their families.
