Tap Handle #141: Redhook - Winterhook

This is a beautiful tap that I've had my eye on for awhile. I finally picked it up and I love it. Yet another in a steady string of outstanding taps from Redhook. Unfortunately, Redhook has since gone to a cheaper tap design (as I mentioned in the Late Harvest post), and although it's still attractive, it's not figural.

Winterhook is a winter seasonal that has been offered every winter for the past 27 years. It has roasted chocolate notes that smooth out the quick, spicy hop finish, with a rich body and nutty, malty backbone. Weighted average on is 3.09 out of 5.

  1. I just purchased a Winterhook Tap Handle from Ebay, its not a figural, its a wood/black logo design. Since, Redhook often changes this tap, I've had a hard time locating the year this one was distributed, any ideas or recommendations? Your collection looks great, keep up the good work!
