Tap Handle #630: Pabst - Kegatron

Tap size:  11.5"
Rarity:  readily available
Mounting:  internal 3/8" nut

Pabst has really been on a roll lately, cranking out tap handle designs as if they've finally discovered that collectors want them, but yet they still don't sell taps as merchandise! It's a puzzler for sure. Fortunately there are other means to obtain them, and I waited for a price drop before buying mine. Inspired by artwork from MälVy Clark Westbrook (see photo to right), there are lots of amazing details on this tap. Kegatron, as it is called, is transforming out of a Pabst beer keg. If you look closely, the top of the keg is the "neck" of Kegatron. Pabst decals appear in multiple places on the tap as well. They are easily found on the secondary market and although the initial price was high, it has since stabilized to a more reasonable level, more along the lines of the Pabst unicorn than the Octopabst.
