Since I know most people won’t be able to get out to my apartment, I decided to post some pictures of my beer themed art to take us into Beer Week. Enjoy.
Soft Spot for Sam Adams:
If you ever want to try saving caps, be careful prying the cap off. Also, never be afraid to ask bars for their caps. Most bars just toss them so they are more than happy to give them away.
Onto using caps in a different way:
Old poster from my pumpkin beer kick:
Transition to my bottle collection:
More of my Sam Adams collection:
If you plan on collecting bottles, I have a couple suggestions:
- CLEAN THEM. Mold will grow in old bottles because the bottles allows the mold a humid environment to naturally latch on to and the little bit of beer left in the bottle is more than enough for it to start growing.
- Recommended: Find a way to recap the bottles. The natural shape of the bottle is enough space for mold to start growing no matter how clean the bottle is. It won’t necessarily grow, but I say belt and suspenders. Also, it keeps dust from collecting in the bottle.
And last, but not least, my dad made me this painting using the six pack poster I made in college. It signifies my transition from just drinking beer in college to learning to appreciate it since I graduated.
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed these pictures.
I will be attending the DC Beer Week Cruise as well as a couple of events on Monday. I hope to have another post up tomorrow.
