Tap Handle #94: Dragonmead - Final Absolution

As I've stated before, I love medieval creatures and weaponry, and this tap fulfills that by featuring a dragon climbing a tower. The detail and coloring are excellent, although this is another tap that would look better with some drybrushing and a matte finish instead of high gloss.

Dragonmead Brewery was founded in Warren, Michigan in 1997 by Earl Scherbarth, Larry Channel, and Bill Wrobel. All three founding members worked in the automotive industry for Chrysler and Ford, until Scherbarth received a home brewing kit for his birthday. After several long hours of work, experimentaion, and discussion, the three friends finally opened Dragonmead. The brewery currently has 47 beers on tap and 77 grains from 7 different countries. The brewpub's interior is of a traditional English pub with a medieval theme.

Final Absolution is Dragonmead's signature product, a Belgian-style abbey tripel, with a banana and clove aroma thanks to the Belgian yeast strain and Belgian Candi Sugar. Weighted average on is 3.54 out of 5.
