This tap, though made of resin, has been made to look like carved wood, and does an incredibly good job of achieving that look, right down to the “chisel marks” visible on the shaft on the back side of the tap. It features a prospector holding a tin pan in one hand and a nugget of gold in the other, an appropriate tap for a beer called California Gold, although the name of the beer does not appear on the tap itself. This tap is an absolute pristine condition! It has been hiding in a basement for over 40 years and is a absolute GEM. There are lots of great little details, from the prospector’s suspenders to the wheat stalks and hops carved on the shaft on the front side. For some reason my camera gave the tap a yellow color; the true color is less yellow and more tan, kind of a golden oak. Not long after Nevada City Brewing closed in 2006, these could be found occasionally on the secondary market, but over the last 10 years I have not seen another, making it now EXTREMELY scarce.
