When Beer (Labels) Meets Arts & Crafts

Over the years we have seen some pretty cool images from Sam fans that demonstrates their love of beer in a variety of ways. 

Who Loves OctoberFest? This guy.

Trick or Treat... or just plain awesome?

 

 

 

 

 

 

How many of these styles have you had?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On Wednesday we clicked over to our Facebook page to find this utterly AMAZING piece of artwork done by Sam fan Sean Carney:

Look closely. You'll see this portrait was created with different Sam Adams labels!

Sean included a few “in the works” pictures which you can find further down. Sean says he soaked the bottles to help peel the labels off, divided them into different color piles and began constructing. He even points out that the cardboard used for the barrels were from our 6-pack carriers! Talk about being thorough in your craft!

Needless to say, Jim was blown away by the final product and surprised to see that so many beer bottle labels could make him look so good. To show his thanks, Jim shot this short video:

 

Have a picture that demonstrates your love of beer? Never hesitate to post to our Facebook page or tweet us a photo… we love seeing them!

Cheers!

Sam Adams bottles do all their own stunts

Love when our Sam fans send along these cool videos. New Hampshire-based Bobcat NINJA uses a Bobcat E50 Excavator to (carefully) stack Samuel Adams beer bottles on top of each other. To further showoff their coolness, they top off their 2-bottle tower with a golf ball.

Don’t believe it? You can click in the upper right-hand corner during the video to see a second angle!

Amazingly, from what we read on LaughingSquid.com, this trick was created in one take. We’ll cheers them for that! You can see more of Bobcat NINJA’s tricks on their YouTube page.

A big thank you to Michael T. for sharing this video on the Samuel Adams Facebook page this week.
