Tap Handle #622: Leinenkugel - Canoe Paddler

Tap size:  14.75"
Rarity:  seasonal
Mounting:  3/8" ferrule on 5/16" anchor bolt

Coming in at a whopping 14.75" tall, the Canoe Paddler is one of the tallest taps in the collection. Featuring the familiar Leinenkugel canoe design, at the top of the tap is a figure in fishing/outdoor gear holding a paddle. This figure has no facial details and is roughly shaped, giving the impression that it is made of carved wood. The canoe is white with thin, dark marks across the surface that resembles birch wood. This is probably my favorite Leinenkugel tap. Even though the beer was a seasonal offering that appears to be available only in bottles now, the tap is still easy to find and very affordable.

Leinenkugel’s Canoe Paddler is their take on a Kolsch-style beer that they have tweaked with a touch of rye. Originally a spring and summer seasonal, it has subtle malt flavors, a clean finish and an adventurous quality. Although it is not listed as a current seasonal brew on their website, it can be found as one of the beers included in the brewery's Summer Explorer Pack that is available from April to July.
