Red Bar Brew. If you haven’t tried this great micro-brew, you need to. You’ll only find it in Red Bar at Hyatt Regency O’Hare.
Our assignment was to design tap handles for a new micro-brew as part of the company’s commitment to sourcing products locally. We started the project with a tasting (we wanted to be thorough) then designed a very contemporary tap handle to position this signature ale to complement the bar. We also wanted to separate it from the usual micro-brew designs.
Getting the handles fabricated turned out to be a learning experience. Since tap handles are usually made in large runs for multiple bars, we had to find a supplier to do a very short run. Using the “hey, do you guys know anybody” method of research, Shannon, our designer and resident beer expert found a custom metal fabricator who is truly an artist. The handles were made from a single block of steel and were so finely sculpted we didn’t want to give them up.
