I've been looking online for tap handles, but all I seem to be able to find are handles for other beers and sports. Is there somewhere that does more on the odd side of things, like comic book themed or possibly video games?

Thanks for any help on this.

I'm not sure what your budget is, but there's a local shop here that does custom tap handles:

I think it's about $85 to get custom printing on any of their stock handles.

You can make your own using either at nut or threaded insert. Drill a hole in the object, insert the insert, and screw it on.

I'm debating on what to do with my boring handles.

a Mario tap handle would be pretty sweet. Maybe him jumping into a questions block.

I was thinking along the lines of Link's Master Sword. I'll probably either buy or make something and then add the insert for it. Thanks for the input, I'll start checking around.

I agree with DougK. If you can find the paraphernalia big enough to mount as a tap handle, it would be the easiest/cheapest way to do it for a cool looking handle.

If not, you can always make some designs and put them in tap handles like this

What about one that looks as though it is challenging me to an arm wrestling match and it has "Over the Tap" printed on it?
