Tap Handle #399: Bud Light - Rain Stick

Tap size:  14.75"
Rarity:  Rare
Mounting:  standard 3/8" ferrule on 5/16" hanger bolt

From my understanding, these rain stick tap handles were produced by Anheuser-Busch for the Outback restaurant chain. I can't verify whether or not that's true, but either way it's a pretty cool tap. Coming in at a whopping 14.75" tall, it's full of lots of great details featuring aboriginal-style art along the length of the tap. Even though it has the feel of a light Balsam wood, it's made of hollowed-out resin, which helps keep the tap lightweight. The front and back of the tap are exactly the same, as are the two sides to each other. It's not extremely rare as they do pop up for sale from time to time, but demand helps to keep prices high.
