Custom Tap Handles Made Locally in BC by Wylie Jack

When you walk into a bar or restaurant and catch a glimpse at the bar in is common to see elaborate branded handles marking the territory of each brewery that has their beer on tap. Like a peacock displaying its feathers each handle attempts to catch the attention of beer drinkers reaching for a pint. It may seem like a small thing but the impression that a handle makes on a consumer, often sells a beer.

Tap handles come from many places. Manufacturers in the USA have produced many of the iconic handles that you see on a regular basis and more than ever before they come from china. There is a company in British Columbia that has been making waves since opening as a sign shop in 1999. Since opening they have started making tap handles, coasters, keg wraps and more. The company’s name is Wylie Jack and is located in the small Eastern-BC town of Invermere.

Starting off first with wooden handles, Wylie Jack has expanded to offer resin and metal handles to meet the needs of local breweries. Working with brands like Stanley Park, Big Rock and Main Street, there is a good chance that you have already seen Wylie Jack’s handwork in the flesh.
