This tap might be brand new never used. Look at the photos. I don’t know that it has been used or not. I’ve owned it for over 5 years and I’ve never displayed it or used it. If it has been used it was gently used and greatly taken care of. I see no flaws at all throughout the entire tap handle. This is an original Tallgrass Brewing Co. Buffalo Sweat tap handle. Hand-crafted from molded resin and hand-painted, this extremely rare buffalo head tap handle has been out of production for years as the brewery switched to generic can-shaped handles with decals. These are extremely hard to find and are a terrific collector’s item for any beer fanatic! This is one of the most beautiful taps I’ve ever seen. Unlike other taps that were mass-produced in China, Tallgrass taps are painted by hand. It’s rare and expensive, but worth every penny – the color and detail are amazing, making it another one of my top taps. Tallgrass Brewing was founded in 2007 by Jeff and Tricia Gill in Manhattan, Kansas. Jeff Gill was a geologist and had been an avid homebrewer for six years, and in 2006, he and Tricia quit their jobs and moved to the Flint Hills and Tallgrass Prairie area of Manhattan. Jeff started by making test batches at Topekas Blind Tiger, allowing him to brew his home recipe that would become Tallgrass Ale. Later that year, he opened the brewery in a copper-clad building. The brewery now has 5 core brands and 14 employees and has attributed recent growth to their wholesale partners and the use of 16 oz. They distribute in 13 states across the Midwest, East Coast, and South. They’ve also been winning awards: Oasis, an ESB, won a gold medal at the 2011 U. Buffalo Sweat is a sweet stout with a smooth creaminess and no bitterness, attributed to the use of cream sugar. The item “RARE BUFFALO SWEAT TALLGRASS BREWING CO. BAR TAP HANDLE BEER KEG MARKER.
