Wylie Jack Tap Handles & Branding, a local Invermere business owned by Richard and Karen Gendron, has begun designing and producing tap handles for Budweiser. These new tap handles are ergonomically vintage-chic and have the chalk space to record the beer’s brewing date.
The Gendrons began Wylie Jack in 2015. Wylie Jack’s start from the duo’s local sign shop has led to a customer base worldwide today. Its tap handles can be used for tapping not only beer but kombucha, cold coffee and cider too. The company also produces custom promotional products, including stickers, apparel and stationary.
Wylie Jack specializes in the product development niche. The Gendrons enjoy working with craft and microbrewers because they understand the struggles that every small business faces.
