REDHOOK BREWING STARTED IN 1981, WITH THEIR FIRST BEER RELEASE IN 1982 AND STILL GOING STRONG. THIS HANDLE IS VERY UNIQUE AND RARE IN A FEW WAYS. FIRST OF WHICH IT WAS MADE IN 2003 AND THE ONLY YEAR IT WAS MADE ACCORDING TO THE MANUF > BY A BOBBLE HEAD PRODUCING COMPANY. THE HANDLE WAS A PROMOTIONAL HANDLE ONLY AND LOW NUMBERS OF THEM WERE MADE. SEE PIC FOR PLACARD. NEW IN ORIGINAL BOX, USED FOR SPECIAL EVENTS AT THE TIME. WHEN LOOKING AT THE BOTTOM IT IS STAINED INSIDE THE INSERT AND OUT, WITH WHAT LOOKS LIKE A STAIN FINISH THAT WAS USED ON THE UPPER PORTION? / IT’S A GREAT HANDLE WITH ATTENTION TO DETAIL AND HEAVY FOR BEING 8ISH IN. GREAT ADDITION TO ANY COLLECTION, OR FANS OF SEATTLE NW BREWING. THIS IS NOT A BOBBLE HEAD. I have thousands of Handles, Pints, Towels and Coasters, Bottles, Trays, Brewing collectibles; from prohibition to 2010. Many rare, unique items, short run items, prototype items, brewery sets and collectibles. I have found the history on many items, especially the unique handmade items that I happened upon. A number of artists are acquaintances of mine, for we met through my compulsive desire to build this collection. NOTE: CERAMIC FRACTURES THAT ARE CREATED FROM THE MANUFACTURING PROCESS: WHEN THE INSERT IS EPOXIED IN, THE CURING EPOXY EXPANDS AND PUTS PRESSURE ON THE CERAMIC, IF THERE IS A WEAK AREA IN THE CERAMIC IT WILL SPLIT AND FRACTURE. REASON WHY LOT OF CERAMICS HAVE THESE FRACTURES STARTING UP FROM THE INSERT. Note: FOR MANY NEW, SMALL SCALE, LOW VOLUME BREWERIES THAT ARE TRYING TO BE SUCCESSFUL, DID NOT WANT TO SPEND LIMITED FUNDS ON HANDLES, LOGO-ED PINTS AND SUCH. A NUMBER OF THEM PRODUCED THEIR OWN TAP HANDLES, OR USED LOCAL ARTISTS TO CREATE THEM???? MAKING MANY OF THESE RARE AND LIMITED ONE OF KIND HANDLES…. Keep me in your favorites, AS IN GO TO “FOLLOW A MEMBER”. AS IT WILL TAKE SOME TIME TO LIST ALL THAT I HAVE. I know the rarity of many of these items and will not budge from my price unless there is a reasonable offer. I have a friend and fellow rugger who owns his own brew pub here in Port Orchard and he had put in a hard plea for my tap handles, as well as a few other pubs that all have handles hanging from their ceiling. After a number of tries to list the majority of these items to be available to the mass of Breweriana Collectors at any given time and listing combinations; and they do not sell, they will go to them. Local donation spots will only take a small amount of them. The item “EXTRMLY RARE REDHOOK BREWERY BALLARD BITTER YASURE YABETCHA IPA BEER TAP HANDLE” is in sale since Tuesday, February 27, 2018.
