Have you had a chance to try all of the wonderful beers of those great stands you collected?

Not sure what the term "try" means.  wink_face.gif  If you mean drink several pints or six packs (or more), then...well...almost all.  Probably about 98% of them, which means well over 110, as the collection now stands at 118 (and counting).

 

Now if I had tap handles for 98% of all the beers I've "tried", then I'd probably have to take over every room of the house to display them all.  Somehow I don't think the WAF would be very high if that happened...

Well ya see, Norm, it’s like this… A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That’s why you always feel smarter after a few beers.

Tap handles can be free (bar that closes), can be bartered for (bar no longer serves that beer), or can be bought on the web (new, or used from auction sites).  In many cases, they ain't cheap.

 

The stands that they sit on, I made dozens of them  - cut and drilled the wood, sanded them, got the correct bolts, stained them, etc.  Fairly simple.  Cheap.

 

Don't forget to tune in next Sunday morning.  It's the last day of the NHL season, and the playoffs start next week....

I would like to say this made my day.  Also I started machining the stand today, Hope to have it done in may given that I only work on it for 1.5 hours every other day.

I used Plutonium ultra supreme professional grade spray paint.  I put about 4 coats on it.  Didn't come out as glossy as I would have liked so I tried a spray-on gloss from Krylon but it was horrible.  I will never use it again, it ruined the whole look.
