Tap Handle #95: Florida Ice & Farm Co. - Rock Ice Amber Lager

This nice tap is similar to the Rhino Chasers Rhino Horn tap, but is supposed to be a mammoth tusk. I got mine new in the box.

Florida Ice & Farm Co. (also known as Cerveceria Costa Rica or Fifco) has been around since 1908 and is the only brewery in Costa Rica. It was started in Siquirres, Limon, Costa Rica, by four Jamaican brothers, who bought an old brewery.  They began diversifying into bottled water, juice and other beverages. The Rock Ice brand was started in 1995 and consists of 3 varieties.

Rock Ice is an pale lager brewed using ice brewing methods like those of Icehouse or Bud Ice. Weighted average on is 1.85 out of 5.
