Tap Handle #409: Dogfish Head - Namaste

Tap size:  12"
Rarity:  Rare
Mounting:  internal 3/8" nut

Let's face it, Dogfish Head loves to splurge on their tap handles, and they have some truly amazing designs. Namaste is not an Uber tap, but it is quite unique. Most taps that have some kind of special feature light up. The Namaste tap is one of the only taps I've ever seen that is animated. The skeleton standing on the platform is held on each side by a rod that pivots. The end effect is that if the tap is pulled in a certain direction, the part that says "namaste" moves away from the Dogfish Head base, and the skeleton bows politely. This tap is becoming more and more will be interesting to see if it eventually heads into the price range of the Uber taps.

Namaste is a Belgian white that is made year round. Bursting with good karma, it is made with dried organic orange slices, fresh-cut lemongrass and a bit of coriander, and is a great thirst quencher. Namaste was originally brewed at their pub in Rehoboth Beach and was a tribute to their friends at 3 Fonteinen brewery in Belgium, who had a devastating production loss (1/3 of their annual production) in 2009. Recommended food pairings are roasted turkey, Caesar salad, pasta with cream sauce, and goat cheese.

Ratebeer weighted average:  3.54 out of 5
