Does anyone know where I can get tap handles with business card-like slots that I can put my label in for a certain beer? Thanks!

If you are crafty, you can make them out of basic shapes from the hardware store, and screw on sheetmetel covers. Then print your label on magnetic sheets, cut them out and stick them on the metal. You can change labels instantly.

No slots to make, just buy some small legs, screw on a flat piece of wood, and glue the metal to it. Voila!

Can't take credit for this one (and not sure where the original post is) but if you're feeling crafty you could give making some a shot...

I'll add that to the other 1000s of things I got going on. Although, if I do end up making a few, I'll make a few extra and see if I can sell them. Can't promise they will get made this year though... Kids have school, band, soccer, dance...
