Tap Handle #473: Tampa Bay Brewing - One Night Stand Pale Ale

Tap size:  9.75"
Rarity:  Rare
Mounting:  standard 3/8" ferrule on 5/16" anchor bolt

One Night Stand is a unique-looking tap in the TBBC lineup. It doesn't have an animal with brick background like some of their other taps have, but it is also not fully figural like Old Elephant Foot. It features an angry-looking fish holding a hook. At the top is the familiar Tampa Bay Brewing logo. Below the fish are the words "One Night Stand" in 3-D sculpted letters, and the "Pale Ale" letters below are not 3-D sculpted but are instead raised up from the black shaft. The base has a weathered pier/plank appearance. It does not bear the "" message that other TBBC taps have. This tap is 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.

One Night Stand is an American Pale Ale brewed using 2 Row American grains and a small amount of Light Crystal malt for a slightly malty flavor, then hopped with Cascade Hops. It debuted in the summer of 1997 as a single batch brew on tap at the brewery but did not have a name other than Pale Ale. One of the bartenders at the time referred to it as the One Night Stand Pale Ale since it was slated to appear only once. The beer was so popular, it managed to gain a full time spot in the TBBC lineup and as for the name, well that just stuck. It is not listed on TBBC's website as one of their current beers, but it is listed on
