Tap Handle #471: Tampa Bay Brewing - Moose Killer Barleywine Style Ale

Tap size:  10"
Rarity:  Rare
Mounting:  standard 3/8" ferrule on 5/16" anchor bolt

Like TBBC's Jack the Quaffer,  this tap depicts an animal in front of a brick backdrop. This time it's a moose dressed in a hunting outfit, with a shotgun off to the side and a hole blown into the bricks (and check out the bullets above the vest pocket for some subtle detail). It has the standard brewery logo at the top, the name of the beer at the bottom of the shaft, and a barrel at the base that says "". This tap is also double-sided, with front and back being identical to each other and the two sides also identical to each other. It is fairly easy to come by and affordable.

Moose Killer is a full-bodied barleywine style ale, high alcohol, light amber in color. Expect a strong warming alcohol presence, malty start, and a nice soft malt finish. It is made using 1400 pounds of American Pale Malt, and heavily hopped with Magnum Hops to balance out the high alcohol content.
