Upper Depot Design Story

Upper Depot Brewing Company in Hudson, NY had its grand opening on New Year’s weekend and Knockout Designs created one-of-a-kind tap handles for their tap room as well as for their local distribution tap handles. Located right next to functional train tracks, Upper Depot has an old-fashioned depot feel with a very modern brewery atmosphere where everyone can enjoy delicious craft beers! Patrons can watch the beer brewing while enjoying a cold brew on tap. For the tap handle design, Upper Depot wanted rail road-themed tap handles for the tap room. They will also be distributing these rail road-themed tap handles with kegs to local bars and restaurants. Knockout Designs worked with Monty and Aaron to create a tap handle that enhances the décor of the beautifully refurbished train depot. The design and production team at Knockout Designs created a wooden base with 3D printed tracks and the Upper Depot logo on the wooden base. This unique design required creative solutions to make all the tap handle pieces fit together seamlessly. In the end, the grand opening and on-theme tap handles as well as the distribution tap handles were a great success!

All the wooden tap handles and products produced by Knockout Designs are sealed, which makes them durable and water-resistant! Knockout Designs specializes in small tap handle orders but also has the capacity for larger distribution tap handle orders. Our custom tap handles, as well as our custom door and cabinet hardware, help to enhance the brand for each craft brewery, bar, and restaurant. Knockout Designs manufactures tap handles, beer flights, and door hardware with various materials, including wood and 3D-printed metal and plastic, to create exclusive products for craft breweries, restaurants, wineries, vineyard tasting rooms, bars, and even the at-home brewer!

Knockout Design’s team of 3D modelers and fabricators works with designers, brewers, and vintners to ensure our clients receive the product they have envisioned. Creating these exclusive tap handles for Upper Depot Brewing Company was a pleasure, and we won’t forget their exemplary brewery location. Knockout Designs always looks forward to creating new, unique tap handles and products for craft breweries, bars, restaurants, and homebrewers in the future.
