Hands On Review: Mashed In Custom Ingredient Tap Handles

mashed in ingredient tap handles review

Mashed In makes beautiful custom beer tap handles from actual brewing ingredients including hops, a variety of grains and more.  Here’s a hands on look.

cln_img_0069I have four Mashed In Tap Handles.  Pictured in this photo, left to right – hops, amber grain, dark grain and light grain.  These are made of a resin material with real ingredients that are… Mashed In.  That’s where the name comes from.  I can feel a little texture on some spots, but for the most part they are smooth and even in the textured areas, the ingredients are not actually exposed.cln_img_0082Installed on my kegeratorcln_img_0084The hops handle installed on a Perlick faucetcln_img_0086Light grain handlecln_img_0085Amber grain handlecln_img_0083Dark grain handlecln_img_0542My “Obsessive Chef” cutting board shows these as just over 5″ in heightcln_img_0539These are about 1 and 1/8″ squarecln_img_0582Pictured in my Recirculating Draft Line Cleaning Pump buildcln_img_0104Pouring a Robust Porter.  See: Brewing Great Fermentations Dark Side Robust Porter

As you can imagine, I have a lot of beer and homebrewing gear including a number of styles of tap handles.  My wife is very supportive of my homebrewing hobby and loves good beer – mostly hop heavy IPAs.  She even occasionally brews with me, but for the most part I get a “meh” on a scale of meh to… meh when I show her new gear.  These tap handles are a notable exception.  She thinks these are awesome and I agree.

I’ve used these for a while now and I can tell you that they are great tap handles.  They are beautifully designed and well built.

Individual handles are available as well as combo packs that get you multiple handles at a reduced price.  Worldwide shipping is included with every purchase.  Mashed In also carriers custom BIAB Bags as well as coasters and business card holders.

Prices are in CAD Canadian Dollars.  These ship from Canada worldwide at no additional cost.  Paypal is accepted and paypal will handle the USD (or whatever) to CAD exchange.
