In my previous bar I had 4 taps and show what's available like this:
With "only" 4 taps it works well. It's fairly obvious to someone which tap is for which beer but people still sometimes had problems figuring this out.
In my new bar I'm putting in a passthru tower with 8 taps:
It will be against a wall with a large chalkboard behind it where the beers will written out from 1 to 8.
Problem is that now it's even harder to find the right handle to pull, so I'm thinking of printing something like these:
On something like these limestone handles
I really like the modern/contemporary look of these handles (straight/no curves). They should go well with the basement/bar as it will be very modern with lots of natural/textured surfaces. (Think Manhattan lounge, not a UK pub).
These handles would only leave 1/4" of spacing between handles however. Would that look odd? Not leave enough room? I can get the spacing on the tower changed but I'd rather leave it at the standard 3" spacing between tap centers.
Anyone seen any other custom handles available that look more 'modern' than most curvy wood handles?
