Bad Little Brewing is a new brewery in Machias, Maine. They specialize in creating food and brews from scratch while respecting the environment and creating a unique experience for the residents and travelers alike in Downeast Maine. Kathryn contacted Knockout Designs about a tap handle for their new tap room at the Clark Perry House in Machias. They wanted a painted wooden tap handle with the names and colors for each of their new brews. We used the state-of-the-art technology of UV LED painting on wood to create unique tap handles for each style of beer. UV LED painting on wood gives a glossy finish to painted wooden tap handles while maintaining bright colors. Kathryn requested five different handles for each of their five new brews.

Knockout Designs specializes in small tap handle orders as seen with Bad Little Brewing, but also has the capacity for larger distribution tap handle orders. Knockout Designs manufactures tap handles with various materials, including wood and 3D-printed metal and plastic, to create unique tap handles for craft breweries, restaurants, wineries, vineyard tasting rooms, bars, and even the at-home brewer. Knockout Designs has created a plethora of unique tap handles many of which are equipped with stylish and functional adornments that the client can label with the name of their craft brew.

These tap handle identifiers can be unique to the clients’ wishes, and allow the client flexibility and versatility in sharing their exclusive craft brews, fine wines, or even specialty ciders with the world. In this case, Bad Little Brewing received vibrant and chic custom-painted tap handles to signify each brew specifically.

Knockout Design’s team of 3D modelers and fabricators works with designers, brewers, and vintners to ensure our clients receive the exact tap handle they have envisioned. Creating this exclusive set of carefully crafted and painstakingly painted wooden tap handles for Bad Little Brewing was a pleasure. We always look forward to creating new, unique tap handles for craft breweries, bars, restaurants, and even homebrewers in the future.
