“The whole is greater than the sum of the parts” is a common explanation of Gestalt theory and much less common when talking about tap handle parts. The parts necessary for the perfect tap handle go quietly unnoticed as the whole of the piece can be admired from afar.
There is a wide variety of tap handle parts to create your own perfect marker from the home brewer to a larger brewery, all you need to do is pick the right parts for the job.
Think about it. Is your beer a robust porter, or an easy drinking hefeweizen? What kind of flavors emanate from your brew? Notes of grapefruit like a west coast beer or more of a thick, bitter taste to keep you warm in winter’s harsh grasp? Next look at how you view your beer. Is it a fun party beer, irreverent in nature, or a bold testament of bygone brews?
The important thing is to make it your own. Keep your ideas alive and have fun with it. There are far too many breweries out there that think way too highly of themselves. Isn’t the entire point of enjoying a beer the experience?
