Tap Handle #55: Anheuser-Busch: Skipjack Amber Lager

I believe this tap was created by the same artist who created the Michelob seasonal taps like Sun Dog and Spring Heat. It appears to be a marlin wearing sunglasses and holding a beer. Mine shows some signs of use but is still in pretty good condition. Not quite as nice as the Tarpon Spoon but still a cool and fun tap.

Like the Tarpon Spoon I profiled back in my Tap Handle #27 entry, Skipjack is an Anheuser-Busch beer created for a local market. Introduced in 2007 and brewed in Anheuser-Busch's Williamsburg, Virginia brewery, Skipjack targets the mid-Atlantic region of the U.S., as well as Kentucky and Tennessee. It is named after the skipjack sailboats that sail Chesapeake Bay. It is described as a lager with an amber-red hue and an aroma of caramel and roasted nut. Weighted average on is 2.75 out of 5.

Like the Tarpoon Spoon, since Skipjack is a local offering, it is not mentioned on the Anheuser-Busch website and has no web page of its own.
