Tap Handle #442: Titletown - Canadeo Gold Kolsch

Tap size:  12"
Rarity:  Uncommon
Mounting: large 3/8" ferrule on 5/16" anchor bolt

I love taps that represent actual structures, like the Boulevard Smokestack I profiled in Profile# 205 or the Cheboygan Lighthouse in Profile# 309. This one resembles the clock tower of the Chicago & Northwestern Railway Depot, which Titletown purchased and turned into their brewery. On one side there is a little owl at the top, but I'm not sure what it represents, although I can find lots of images of toy owls dressed in Green Bay Packers gear. The tap is not rare and is pretty affordable.

Titletown Brewing Company was founded in Green Bay, Wisconsin in 1996 by Brent Weycker. It was established in the old Chicago & Northwestern Railway Depot. Built in 1899, the depot was a bustling hub of activity, and remained in use until becoming vacant in 1994, paving the way for Titletown Brewing's acquisition and occupancy 2 years later. In 1999, the depot was officially named to the National Register of Historic Places.

Business has been good for Titletown, serving the local area as an upscale eating establishment and microbrewery. In 2014, Titletown expanded through the opening of a new brewery and tap room. The company transformed the old Larsen Vegetable Cannery into a full production brewery capable of producing 35,000 barrels per year. Titletown plans to start bottling its beer and distributing it statewide. all brewing operations will be run out of the new facility. In the original facility, the restaurant space will be expanded once the brewing operation is moved out. 

Named after the Packer and Hall of Fame member Tony Canadeo, this beer represents one of the few ale styles that originated in Germany. This bright gold colored ale is made using European Pilsner & wheat malts and German Spalter Spalt hops. Due to the use of special yeast and fermentation methods, this beer is highly reminiscent of a lager, possesses a lightly malty body, low fruitiness and a balanced European hop flavor and aroma.
