Tap Handle #604: Anheuser-Busch - Shock Top Honey Bourbon Cask Wheat

Tap size:  12.25"
Rarity:  readily available, fragile
Mounting:  internal 3/8" nut

Honey Bourbon Cask Wheat is the seventh Shock Top tap profiled on the site, and is my favorite of the bunch. There are more details on this tap than on any of the others, and they all work well together. The familiar orange slice head is wearing honeycomb-shaped sunglasses and sports the newer style of mohawk - striped. Around the rest of the tap you can find drips of honey, beehives, and honeybees. Like all Shock Top taps, there are lots of detailed edges that are easily damaged, especially around the base or the mohawk. Although Honey Bourbon Cask Wheat is one of the most rare Shock Top varieties, and despite not being listed on their website as an active beer, this tap is still fairly easy to find on the secondary market, but typically commands a higher price than other varieties.
