Artisanal Tap Towers

Hie-Brue Tap Towers

These beautifully crafted tap towers are constructed from upcycled and reclaimed materials.  A partnership formed when a pipe organ builder, Ben Hiett, and a home brewer/ draught system designer, Matt Brueggeman, came together and fused their passions with their artisan skills. The unique nature of each piece tells its own story of a previous life with a rich history. Just as their beauty is breathtaking, the places and stories of where the materials came from are just as enthrolling. These will make an exceptional center piece to any bar or kegorator system. These remarkable craftsmen can also customize tap handles and towers to fit any location. We have a few of these amazing pieces on display for sale but will also be happy to put you in contact with the artists for custom handmade pieces. Why shouldn’t your tap tower be as remarkable as your hand crafted beer?
