Tap Handle #529: Anheuser-Busch - Shock Top Twisted Pretzel Wheat

Tap size:  12"
Rarity:  Uncommon
Mounting:  internal 3/8" nut

You have to give Anheuser-Busch credit where it's deserved - they sure have done a good job commissioning beautiful Shock Top taps. The Twisted Pretzel Wheat is one of my favorites of the Shock Top lineup. There are pretzels all over the tap, with grains of salt attached to them. Towards the top of the tap the pretzels are the common round version, but at the base they are long and twisted together. The tap has a small sign below the beer name that says the beer is a Limited Edition. What this means is that instead of this tap being common with thousands made, it is uncommon with probably only several hundred made. They are easy to find on the secondary market, but the uncommon status makes them more expensive than most other Shock Top varieties.

Twisted Pretzel Wheat was first put into production in 2014. Shock Top has united the classic taste of a crisp, cold beer and warm, bakery-fresh pretzels. The beer is a limited-edition, a Belgian-style unfiltered wheat ale that delivers the delicious taste and aroma of fresh pretzels. It is served up at beer festivals nationwide and available on draught at select locations.
