With the holidays coming up its super awesome to see some of the great gift ideas coming together around our favorite craft supply, beer! I've been getting some great mail lately and seeing other cool gift ideas on the web and am delighted to share photos and projects. Tim and Devon at Penny's Pints Pittsburgh made this absolutely kick ass beer advent calender . I love the PVC pipe idea which means I could use it from one year to the next OR every month! Seriously, why just once a year? It's a great design and they did a fab job on the instructions, kudos boys!
Merideth at beergeek.com is a true Renaissance woman, traveler, writer, lover of all things beer- she's sent me some very fab photos of her own creations including these rad cards from empty six pack boxes.
One of my favorite holiday crafts came from Geneva in TN, we met at a book signing this summer in Colorado and she told me about her embossed ornaments. Such a great idea and who wouldn't want Kenny and Cartman around to make the season just a bit more festive. I don't quite know how she made the coolness, BUT I've suspicions- expect an embossing tutorial in the near future. AND if you're looking for other great ways to celebrate the season- check out the beer menorah contest on the Schmaltz brewing facebook page, it's a delight and one of the best beers on the planet!
