Wood Beer Tap Handles & Custom Accessories Handcrafted – Half Yankee Workshop

Your home-brewed beer has a distinct flavor. Pair it with a one-of-a-kind handle.

You’re not just a brewer; you’re a craftsman. We get that. At Half Yankee Workshop, each tap handle and bottle opener is hand cut and finished to give you a back bar as unique as your brew.
Half Yankee craftmaster Jeremy Jordan works with a combination of local woods from his home in Houston, Texas, and exotic woods sourced from reputable vendors worldwide. He shapes each piece of wood into a one-of-a-kind tap handle, taking inspiration from the beers he samples along the way.
Every handcrafted wood beer tap handle has a story—though of course, the bartender is free to embellish. Visit the shop to browse our Session Series, Seasonal Series, and Premium Reserve beer tap handles.
