Tap Handle #548: Genesee - J.W. Dundee's Original Honey Brown Lager

Tap size:  12.75" tall by 4" wide
Rarity:  Very Rare
Mounting:  flared 3/8" ferrule on 5/16" anchor bolt

Way back in tap profile #83, I profiled a Dundee Honey Brown tap featuring a drumming bee. This tap, which features a brewmaster admiring his product, represents the same beer before its name was changed. First created in 1994, J.W. Dundee's Honey Brown Lager had its name changed to Dundee Honey Brown in 2008, so that dates this tap sometime between 1994 and 2008. Needless to say, it's been at least 7 years since these taps were in use, and they are quite rare. I've seen maybe less than a dozen over the past couple of years, and though they are reasonably priced, all were missing the label. This tap was used for all J.W. Dundee varieties, which included Amber Lager and Pale Ale. If you have mounting restrictions, it's best to mount this with the arm facing forward, since that protruding arm gives the tap a 4" width, making it wider than most other taps.
