This is how I get free beer. An old homebrewing friend of mine decided to open his own brewery and tap room here in town. I asked if he needed any tap handles. He wanted to incorporate the old farmhouse door knobs that his mother had collected through the years, so I came up with some handles for him. He also wanted them all to be different. My personal favorites are the ones on each end. The left one is ebonized walnut with an acrylic Celtic Knot. The one on the right is my first offset turning, which HAD to be done, since the name of the beer is “Drunken Raven”. It is a double IPA with about 9% ABV and 100 IBU! The 3rd handle from the right has a captive ring in it.
The 2nd photo is a pint glass tote which I designed for him. He plans to sell his logo pints in 4 piece gift packs.
Every one of his beers are fantastic. My personal favorite is the Taddy Boggler Scottish Ale (which is my favorite beer style), and the Chili beer is awesome too. Anyone venturing into Northern Colorado needs to stop by and have a pint of this awesome beer!
I’ve also got several projects going for another local brewery, so life is good!
