Tap Handle #17: Red Wolf - Prowling Wolf

Many taps are comical or artistic; this tap has kind of an eerie feel to it. I don't know if it's the fact that the red wolf is on the prowl - or perhaps it might be the logo with the crescent moon. It has a certain mystique about it, that's for sure. It's often referred to as "Prestige". I have a second red wolf tap that will be featured in an upcoming post.

Red Wolf is a red-colored lager brewed by Annheiser-Busch. Red lagers in the U.S. were largely a marketing gimmick from the big breweries in the mid-1990s. Since then, many microbrews have come out with red ales of superb quality, such as St. Rogue Red from the Rogue Brewery. Like many of the big brewery gimmick reds, Red Wolf suffered from poor ratings and sales and was discontinued sometime around 1999-2000. Weighted average on is 1.8 out of 5.
