Our Beer Taphandle Catalog Shapes on Display

For some time we have wanted a physical version of our catalog of beer taphandle shapes. Thanks to the new space we are able to make that happen. If you’re looking for the perfect handle for your brewery you’ll be able to stop in at 1200 N. Macon Street and check out our selection in person.   You can find descriptions of each of these shapes in our on-line catalog.  We have plenty of samples of these handles labeled and silk screened in our museum.  Follow us on Instagram to see more of the museum.  

Turning a Bowl with a Natural Edge

Seven experienced bowl turners from the Baltimore Area Turners joined Mark & Nancy in the shop last weekend for a two day workshop on turning a bowl with a natural edge.   It was a hot, August in Baltimore weekend, but with plenty of fans, cold water and breaks, we all survived.  The bowl turning was challenging, frustrating (at times), but in the end rewarding.  Congratulations to turners Ron Ford, Joe Heinlein, Chuck Cohen, Gynene Sullivan, Thomas Szarek & Ed Cohen for surviving the heat and crafting some beautiful bowls.
