Azalea City Brewing Company

Blackboard tap handle


Azalea City Brewing Co. is a new brewery in Palatka, Florida. Andrea, the brewery’s owner, chose Palatka as the location due to her love for the outdoors. Palatka is home to many trails, and is located on the St. Johns River. Andrea contacted us to create a blackboard tap handle with their logo. The blackboard tap handle insert would identify the beers on tap. They serve all kinds of beer, including fruity ales as well as chocolate and oatmeal stouts. The blackboard inserts act as a creative way to label beers while also allowing for beer menu changes.

While planning out the design, we consulted with Andrea on her preferences. She decided to go with a pale wooden shaft. We designed a flat and almost-rectangular shape for it, that slants outward at the top. Their nature-oriented logo is engraved onto the top of the shaft, including a flower and river waves. It fits right in with the wooden backdrop. Below the logo lies the blackboard inserts that Andrea requested. The handles are easy for bartenders to use, as they are the perfect shape to rapidly flip on and off. We are extremely proud of our design team for how elegantly they pulled this design together. We are always proud of how versatile our designers are in their abilities to excel using different materials and processes.

The team at Knockout Designs is always excited to work with new breweries on product design. We also love redesigning established breweries’ tap handles.
