Tap Handle #12: Michelob - Brass Eagle

This is a great tap featuring the iconic eagle used by Michelob in their marketing. Most of Michelob's taps are rather dull and uninspired (not counting their seasonals), but the eagle is popular. This tap is a little small at 9"; most taps are about 11-12" in length.

Michelob is a division of Annheiser-Busch. The pale lager was developed by Adolphus Busch in 1896 as a "draught beer for connoisseurs". It was named after Michelob Michelob, a Bohemian brewmaster from Saaz. In 1961 it was pasteurized which allowed it to be legally shipped across state lines. Michelob has a whole family of beers in addition to its pale lager: Michelob Light, Classic Dark, Honey Lager, Pale Ale, Marzen, Jack's Pumpkin Spice Ale, Winter's Bourbon Cask Ale, Bavarian Wheat, Porter, and Amberbock. Weighted average on is 1.94 out of 5.
