It may be 2018 but the Brewers Association just finished compiling their data on craft breweries from last year so we now know the top 50 craft breweries from 2017!

Since I make custom gifts out of beer tap handles a lot of people have been asking me some common questions:
What are the best craft beer tap handles?
Can I buy craft beer tap handles?
Where can I buy craft beer tap handles?

The great news is that many of the top 50 craft breweries in the US sell their tap handles through their gift shops and I’m directly partnering with some of them for custom beer gifts. While I won’t go into the best craft beer tap handles in this article I will let you know what the different craft brewery tap handles look like and where you can buy the tap handles.

Here’s the list!
