Years ago it would have been hard to imagine the possibility that you could have your draft tap in your home bar.  With the growing sales of bar equipment on the internet it is now very possible to make that dream come true.  For many it has already happened!

This pub sign project would be perfect for that friend that has home brew on tap or makes it a point to have a keg on hand for that special event. With the growing craft beer culture happening in most cities you're sure to find a pub, home brewing club or business that would love to have a new sign. Maybe something that outlines what they have on tap or advertizing their seasonal ale.     

We have designed a few neat features into this project that will make it even easier to use and re-use.  These features include:
- Draft handle is flat for easy VCarving and the spout is raised so it can fit over the edge of a plaque to add more depth to your layout.
- Plaque accepts VCarving or even the addition of raised text.
Plaque has a flat bottomed dished center so it will accept almost any model and will also let you get the most "Z" depth out of the added model.

We have also created a free vector download for the stylized beer text we used in our example layouts.

Time to pour yourself a pint and get thinking about that next weekend project!
