This Bavarian Type Beer Ball Tap Knob is from the Mount Carbon Brewing Company located in Pottsville, PA. This Bavarian Type Beer Ball Tap Knob is from the 1930’s to 1940’s era and is in excellent condition for it’s age. Ball tap knobs also known as tap markers were mandated by the government during the 1930’s to be used to mark what beers were on tap in bars and taverns. The
The Mount Carbon Brewery had a few variations of ball tap knobs that they used; I have almost all of them in my collection. Currently I have 2 other variations that are similar except they promote MC Pilsener De Lux Beer; both have blue porcelain enamel faces.
