Yelp solicited the Madison community for people who would be interested in making some cool tap handles for a launch of their October “Red Bursting Ale” (made by none other than Page Buchanan) at our neighbor down the street – Tex Tubb’s Taco Palace.
Despite the major net cash loss (we’ll write this one off to the Clean Lakes Alliance that we hope got a big check from this – Jim’s modelling arms may never recover). The only criteria was that the handle must have the name of the beer visible and include the yelp logo.
Jim made an amazing handle from a full size negative silicon cast of his arm that was recast as a positive clear resin:
Adrian from Peredesign created a cnc routed and hand finished classic handle from recycled lumber
And Josh from Siglinda Knives pulled together a tastefully simple handle with laser cut engraving and wood elements (center):
