SWITCH TAPS

To create an interchangeable tap handle system that is affordable, available and professional looking for home brewers, kegerator owners and growler users. In addition to the initial six Face Plate designs, our product line will continue to expand to include additional generic beer logos, brewery specific, wine and craft soda and customizable labels. The residential user will now have the ability to brand their home bars and growlers with their favorite brews.

Here is their story: Initially, while learning the art of home brewing and attending craft beer events, we discovered a problem finding a tap handle to show off our home brews (Ale, IPA, Lager, Pilsner, Stout, Wheat). We found most beer taps to be very expensive and logoed for only one beer type. With every change of the keg, a new tap handle was needed.

We tried using the chalkboard style handles, but felt they were messy and lacked that professional image we wanted our home bar to portray. Like most, we simply branded our handles and beer growlers using a piece of masking tape and a marker or another type of homemade label.

While planning a backyard BBQ and purchasing a keg of craft beer, we were again on the hunt for a tap handle that would showcase the locally produced beer. The local beer store where we purchased the keg didn't have anything available for purchase. We also contacted the brewery and it was not available, so we were forced to use a plain black universal handle.

Initially, we worked to create an interchangeable handle for our own personal use and quickly realized we had a viable product that could compete within the tap handle category. It was our diamond in the rough!
