    I'm a big fan of the Port Brewing flip flop sandal tap handles, partially because its my footwear of choice.

    I used to love when Goose Island Brew Put put santa hats on the tap handles around Christmas time. Not sure if they still do that.

    ... I really hate these big, ornate, ugly modern tap handles - which are made even worse when they're jumbled together in an often confusing mess at multitap bars.

    eBay price gouging liars. People put these up for auction and claim they were made once and never again. All lies. They are frequently available at the brewery for $79.

    Actually available one time only. So it's a rare handle about 150 made.

    Is that the tap handle that was made during a reality show about taxidermy that was on the Travel Channel a couple years ago? It looks cool!

    I think it might be. I didn't see the episode, but my buddy said the same thing.

    I always thought the Bluepoint handle was cool.

    Burley Oak and Burley Oak again! I just love the simplicity of it. Not really to collect though.

    That's pretty sweet. I just started my tap handle collection yesterday. I have two whole tap handles. I definitely plan on getting more. You have a sweet collection.
