Default Custom Carved Tap Handles



a friend of mine is a novice wood carver and volunteered (was drafted) to carve some tap handles for my kegerator.

second tap is obviously a Boundary Bay IPA handle....

and that's not all - he has promised more handles are on the way.

You should have one with bitter beer face for your IPA. Those are sweet.

Between the color, straight grain, and "novice carver" comment my guess is bass.
