Until this morning, I was going to highlight this coaster with a bunch of others that fell into the category "This beer is so bad I won't even use this coaster". Then I read the paragraph at the bottom.
This is one of more unique coasters I have come across and probably should have been featured in my [unusual coaster shape] post. But after reading the game instructions I really couldn't believe what I was reading. It seems they are attempting to create a new game of quarters, something I'm not sure that is really needed. But what I find most ironic is that this new drinking game (and let's be clear, it is a drinking they are pushing) carries a "Drink Responsibly" logo!
I needed some head-shots for pints&pairings promotional stuff so I asked a friend to come over and take some photos of me drinking beer.
Recently, I went through my coaster collection and pulled out my favorite uniquely shaped coasters.
Perfect coaster for sharing two flutes of Kriek.
One of the more intricate coaster designs I have seen. I love it when companies opt for the more expensive great design. This could have easily been a regular round coaster but that wasn't good enough for New Belgium.
I love New Belgium and if you ever get to Fort Collins, CO you have to take their tour. The brewery is a great example for being as green as you can be. Besides using wind power, they even capture methane from their waste water to help power the brewery. My favorite NB beer is La Folie
I just liked the unique shape of this coaster. The only info I can find about Tuborg is that it is a pale lager. Not sure if I would enjoy the beer as much as I do the coaster but apparently it is a hallucinogen ... see commercial bellow.
Not only is it a unique shape but it looks like a wax seal. Great coaster and great beer. Be sure to watch the video below. It is incredible.
I can't find any info about the beer, however, I can find info about a bar in Belgium by the same name. This may be a contract brew for them. On the plus side, I will always try a new Belgian beer especially an amber.
I have several De Koninck coasters that have the same cut-out design. I especially like this one because of the beer drinking zombies! You can read more about this label in a previous post [HERE]
I came across a book of free public domain clipart and found some great beer related images that I will be customizing for my needs! Feel free to use but please link back to me and give HopHeadSaid a shout-out.
A brief explanation of English Pale Ales and food pairing suggestions!
My first print article is now available on-line! I am now a contributing writer for VCBuzz a Ventura County centered magazine. I will be covering the local (Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties) beer scene by interviewing local beer experts and reporting back to you on the must see beer bars or breweries or must drink beers!
As of late, I have been devouring zombie movies so this coaster caught my eye right away. Except for the jester fella (which, lets face it is pretty scary in its own right) the rest seem to be well on their way to becoming zombies. But, as this coaster illustrates, even one legged, losing my other leg, needing a crutch to keep me from falling zombies like good beer!
Straying from the topic of beer just a bit, I am always looking for a good zombie movie. Let me know about your favorite Z-movie. Mine happens to be "Shaun of the Dead", which is arguably more about beer than zombies, and "Aaah! Zombies!!" a movie shot from the zombies point of view.
Literally translated as "My home is where my Stella Artois is"
I just like the simplicity of the design but I can tell my OCD would be working overtime making sure my glass lined up perfectly with the outline.
Now this Stella coaster is just plain disturbing. The goggle translation is even more disturbing. Ball of the dead rat.
If you can shed some light on this folklore or the meaning behind it, please do!
