VIDEO: A new firetruck in Statesville won’t be putting out fires anytime soon. In fact, it’s not even part of the fire department. A brewery in town has manufactured its own fire engine to help quench the thirst of beer enthusiasts. The owner of Red Buffalo Brewing Company in Downtown Statesville wanted to expand his business without buying another brick-and-mortar location. After seeing a firetruck converted into a food truck at a festival, an idea came to mind, why not use a fire truck to pour beer? By law, you don’t have to pull over for the firetruck in Statesville, but perhaps you’ll want to. When the red lights are flashing, the beer is ready to pour. “People will say you’re crazy, but then they love it. So it’s good crazy,” said the owner of Red Buffalo Brewing Company, Joe Bondi.
