Tap Handle #472: Tampa Bay Brewing - Iron Rat Stout

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

As I established in the last couple of posts, TBBC has kind of a "standard" tap format, and Iron Rat Stout follows that formula with an animal against a red brick background. The rat is wearing a hat and a muscle shirt while holding a mug of beer. The tap 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.

Iron Rat is a time-honored dry stout brewed with seven types of grains and other secret select ingredients. Full bodied, intense alcohol, roast, chocolate, and coffee tones are all balanced out by Northern Brewer hops, and it is dispensed with nitrogen for a rich creamy head.
