Tap Handle #269: Anheuser-Busch - Shock Top Lemon Shandy

Tap size:  12.25"
Rarity: Common
Mounting:  internal 3/8" nut

I have several other Shock Top taps, this version was the third variety I've profiled. As with all my Shock Top taps, this one is the 12" version. It was first produced in 2012. The sliced lemon head is very similar to the standard Shock Top orange slice head, but the lemons around the base make it feel substantially more beautiful and detailed. The amount of detail makes them easily prone to chipping when used, and sometimes that chipping can be hard to spot. It is not rare at all - you can pick one up almost anytime you want to - although the price is a bit higher than the standard Shock Top tap.

First introduced in 2012, Shock Top Lemon Shandy is made with real California lemon peels to deliver a bright and unmistakably Shock Top taste. Brewed with two row and six row malted barley and five different types of hops, this Belgian-Style Wheat Ale is then combined with real citrus peels, coriander, natural lemonade flavor and a hint of sugar for a subtle sweetness. The end result is an incredibly refreshing, crisp and smooth beer that hits the spot. Although it is considered a summer seasonal, it can be found throughout the year at various locations due to high production levels.
