Tap Handle #419: Miami Brewing (Schnebly Winery and Brewery) - Big Rod Coconut Ale

Tap size:  13.25"
Rarity:  Rare
Mounting:  internal 3/8" nut

This is the last of the "big 4", the set of 4 taps from Miami Brewing. All the taps are great, but I'd put this one just behind Shark Bait and Vice in popularity. As is typical of Miami Brewing taps, the concept is fantastic, the colors are beautiful and there are lots of great little details, from the bobber and the hook in the coconut to the cork-like appearance of the base, which even feels a little like cork to the touch. The use of the coconut as bait is hilarious, implying that the brewery will "hook" you on this beer. This tap is not quite as rare as some of their others but still commands a hefty price.
