Tap Handle #289: Big Rock - Magpie Rye Ale

alternate version
This is a real beauty of a tap. It's a little on the small side (about 7-8"), but it's impressive in spite of that. It's very, very rare - I don't recall ever seeing another. There is a second version of the tap (pictured to the right) that is just as rare.

Big Rock Magpie Rye was a full-bodied ale with a rich copper colour and a spicy-bouquet, recommended for the wine enthusiast. Weighted average on is 2.8 out of 5. Although does not show the brew as retired, it is not listed on Big Rock's website as part of their lineup, and it also isn't on their 2013 brewing schedule.
