Damn, those are big ass tap handles…Shit, if a fight ever went down in a bar I’d twist one of those off. It’s pretty much like a cricket bat.
wonder what they’re doing with the old ones…. I want one. I like the wood handles better.
My first reaction was that I liked the old ones, but change is good and those are pretty swanky. While I love Schlafly, their reputation is a little on the boring side, so maybe they’re trying to ratchet up the cool factor. The handles do seem pretty huge though.
I still want one of the old ones for my kegerator.
I think they would look a bit better if the space between both logos was shortened a bit.
Schlafly will be collecting and swapping out all of our old tap handles over the next few months. There will be an announcement next week, but the plan is to sell all the original handles at a very, very low price (to make sure they sell,) and donate all of the money to charity. Info to follow.

Cool on the selling the old tap handles! Uh…the new ones remind me of the old AB plastic ones from my childhood. My dad was a sales manager at an AB distributor.
That is good to hear, Troika! Thanks for the update. Depending on the price, I’ll probably grab a few. Someday I plan to have a home bar, and I want to display some tap handles.
Some of the best tap handles I’ve seen, they’re practical and nice looking. Am I the only one thats
annoyed by those whacky looking handles that give no clue as to what beer it is?
