Tap Handle #130: Grand Canyon Brewing - Horseshoe Bend Pale Ale
Awesome detail and a matte finish make this a great tap. There's just something about cattle skulls that I find appealing. I have acquired a Horseshoe Bend Pale Ale label to put on one side of the tap...on the other side I will not label it, and leave the "Property of the Grand Canyon Brewing Company" because it's humorous and unique.
The Grand Canyon Brewing Company was founded in Williams, Arizona in 2007 by John and Josh Peasley, who were both under 26 years old. They started as a local brewpub offering pints at Cruiser's. Interest grew quickly and other companies asked about offering Grand Canyon beer. They now distribute all over the state of Arizona. They brew eight varieties of beer and occasionally offer seasonals. The brewpub is only open on weekends, but their beer can still be bought at Cruiser's. All the brewpub furniture, shelves, and pool table are made from hand-carved Ponderosa Pine, crafted by the Peasley brothers.
Horseshoe Bend is a pale ale with a fragrant bouquet and spicy flavor. Weighted average on ratebeer.com is 2.91 out of 5.
