Hoptown Handles was started in 2015, and like so many craft breweries, it was started by homebrewing in a garage. Hoptown's founder, Ben Weston, a San Diego native, former attorney (don't hold it against us), and teacher was introduced to homebrewing shortly after moving to Portland, Oregon. And while the homebrewing was fun, customizing the homemade kegerator was what gave him the most enjoyment. He hated the way the stubby little black handles looked and he wanted something custom that reflected his personality.
After some tinkering and waaaaay too many Star Wars books, a Star Wars themed kegerator complete with lightsaber tap handles was born (Stouts are always on the dark side...) Shout out to Fuggles and Warlock Craftworks in Vancouver, BC for letting us make some lightsaber tap handles for their epic brewery. Ben loved the art and craftsmanship that went into building custom tap handles and after years of honing his craft, he decided to take a leap and create some of those handles he had admired so many years before. A big thank you to Feckin Brewing in Oregon City for taking a chance on a new company.
Michael Inbody, a woodworking expert, joined the team in 2016 and has made dramatic improvements to the quality of our tap handles along with significant production efficiency improvements that allow us to fulfill high quantity orders in a very timely manner. We now work with breweries throughout the world to make custom tap handles that reflect the creativity and time that goes into your passion. Keep your eyes peeled!
