"Yards No. 1"—Rob Lloyd.

"The Yards Bottle Tap" – Chris Dietrich. How do customers recognize Yards Beer in a poorly lit bar? This design mimics the strengths of the Yards brand in the commercial bottle market and extends that recognition to the draft point-of-purchase moment With prominent 360° Yards branding and a flavor label on the customer AND pourer sides, this universal tap retains the core brand across all flavors. Top-mounted figures emphasize the iconic styles and add unique character to the Yards product line.

    To further emphasize the specific flavors available on tap, a top screw mount provides the opportunity to adorn each tap handle with a specific ornament for each iconic beer style: a colonial wig for the Ales of the Revolution series, an orange fist for the Brawler, a Fleur de Lis for the Saison, a Union Jack shield for the IPA, etc. - all created with affordable CNC 3D printing models and a simple screw post insert. See all four top-mounted insignias here: http://www.pinterest.com/pi...

"The ScrapYards" —Conor O'Brien. Inspired by Yard’s philosophy of “Going The Extra Yard,” it combines sustainability with the brewery’s classic style. Repurposing materials from the scrap heap, the body is constructed of exotic wood cutoffs and Yards logo from aluminum scrap metal, both fabricated using a 4-axis CNC mill. The handle embodies the spirit of Yards, creating an artisanal product with minimal impact on the environment while embracing the advanced technologies available at NextFab.

"Yards Tap Handle"—East Coast Taps

  • NextFab

    We are East Coast Taps, and our mantra is 'sell more beer, look more awesome. We are a start-up that uses manufacturing practices just like the ones found at NextFab to create custom beer taps for breweries, bars, and 'man-caves' across the country. Right now, we're refining our manufacturing capabilities, which drew us to this contest because it opened the door to the NextFab Studio to help us grow our business. Our tap is simply called 'The Franklin' and started off as a sketch, inspired by the rich history of Philadelphia and our Founding Fathers. After spending some time in Philly while working on our sketches, we felt confident we were going to be able to capture the aura of the City of Brotherly Love. We then hand sculpted 'The Franklin' out of clay and spent hours working on each and every detail. Once our model was complete, we created a mold and poured our tap. The tap is also meticulously painted by hand to give it that 'Old City' rustic feel. We love beer and creating more taps for people to enjoy is all we want to do! - East Coast Taps

"Ol Timey Tap"—Keith Hatton. Inspired by a traditional magnifying glass, ‘Ol Timey captures the subtle complexity and distinguished quality of Yards Brewing, while hinting at the company's Philadelphian roots. The bottom of the handle's contours are a tip of the hat to the master brewers and its lens is an interchangeable puck to open the door for more dynamic labels and future collectables! 'Ol Timey is a tap you want to get your hand on and has the character to stand out among it's peers!

"Tap Handle No. 19123"—S. Casey Gleason. Tap Handle No. 19123 is crafted out of scrap wood and aluminum. The wood body is shaped, carved, and burnt for the grip of a brawler, while an extra special hand may love to pull from the brushed aluminum loop. This tap handle design gives a nod to Philadelphia’s industrial history and celebrates our modern day revolution to bring back a handcrafted sensibility to the forefront of our culture.
