Tap Handle #27: Anheuser-Busch - Tarpon Spoon

The Tarpon Spoon tap is a beautiful rendition of a tarpon, a Florida fish that survives in both salt and fresh water, brackish water, varying pH levels, and even low oxygen levels. They can get up to 8 feet long and weigh up to 280 pounds. This tap is quite rare. The Spoon refers to the silvery part of the lure that the fish bites at.

Tarpon Spoon is a Bohemian pilsner created by Anheuser-Busch's Jacksonville, Florida brewery in 2007. This makes it a local brew and unlikely to be found across the country and explains the rarity of the tap. In fact, I couldn't find any page or other information on Anheuser-Busch's website, other than a press release. Weighted average on is 2.43 out of 5.
