Tap Handle #628: Blue Corn Cafe & Brewery - Honeymoon Wheat Ale

Tap size:  13" tall by 4.25" deep
Rarity:  10 or less seen, beer retired, hand-made
Mounting:  3/8" ferrule on 5/16" anchor bolt

I laughed out loud when I first saw photos of this tap. A bee wearing a pilot's cap and flying goggles is "mooning" a large, silver crescent moon while standing on one end of it. The moon has been given facial features, and is actually rolling its eyes at the juvenile action that the bee is performing. The color and detail of the tap are excellent. The size of the tap is impressive as well, standing at 13" tall and having a depth of 4.25". It has instantly become one of my favorite taps in the collection, especially since it is so rare - Blue Corn Cafe ordered very few of these, and it has been out of production for a long time. I've only seen two others, and they were both expensive at over $200 each.

Millions of bees gathered orange blossom nectar to produce this dry, crisp wheat ale. Delicately spiced with coriander and orange peel, it is a match made in heaven when paired with green chile.
