Tap Handle #561: Flying Dog - Doggie Style Classic Pale Ale

Tap size:  11.25"
Rarity:  Very Rare
Mounting:  internal 3/8" nut

A few posts ago I profiled the Blue Point Old Howling Bastard tap handle that was a different version from one that I had profiled a few years before. That is the case here as well; this Flying Dog tap is quite different from the previous Flying Dog tap I posted about in profile #314. This version is a lot more figural than the original, with a crazy-looking, brightly painted dog half submerged in a foaming glass of beer. There are a few scarce versions of the tap with different paint and markings on the dog, such as K-9 Winter Ale that had the dog painted in a dalmatian color scheme. This tap is not exactly scarce - it does pop up occasionally on the secondary market; however, many are missing the label, and almost all of them are missing the rubber "propeller" on the top that helps it become a "flying dog".

For more about Flying Dog, see this post.
