Mt. Hood is Oregon’s highest peak, clocking in at 11,250 feet. North Drinkware, a team of Oregon-based glass blowers decided to commemorate this prominent landmark and immortalize it in glass by creating a 3D model of the peak that’s integrated into the base. Working from topographically accurate data obtained from the Using United States Geological Survey (USGS), the team hand-blows each glass and incorporates the model “so your beer cascades around the mountain when you pour it into the glass.”

Mt. Hood is visible up to 100 miles away, which helps to explain the affinity that many working and living in Oregon feel towards the peak. “We have a really strong connection with the mountains,” says one of the creators. “We stare at them, we play on them and we identify with them.” That’s what led North Drinkware to embark on a path to creating a glass that embodies a connection with Mt. Hood. The Oregon Pint brings technology, a sense of place and old world craftsmanship together. You can order your own glass on Kickstarter, where the company has recently launched a campaign to fund their first creation. (via Laughing Squid)

These cement filled beer can nun-chucks (bud chucks, if you will) are a collaboration between Brooklyn based industrial designer Chen Chen and Kai Tsien Williams.

The Recovery of Discovery by Cyprien Gaillard: A 72,000 bottle pyramid of beer

May 14, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Behold the latest installation by French artist Cyprien Gaillard who constructed this 72,000 bottle pyramid of beer in cardboard boxes (a beeramid, if you will) at KW Berlin. After signing a waiver participants are free to climb, open, and consume as many bottles of “Efes” beer as they desire, making this, in my eyes, the pinnacle of modern art as we know it. Though in all seriousness the pyramid is meant to act as a monument and its consumption is intended to illustrate the hyper-destruction of architectural relics that are often relocated to Berlin:

By using the monument – by climbing the sculpture and drinking the beer – its destruction is already initiated. The barbaric removal of single architectural elements that have been transported from their original location to Berlin, embodies both the concept of displacement and a tourist colonialism.

Gaillard’s pyramid will be gradually consumed through May 22. Art Observed notes:

The pyramid is now dilapidated, though one can still make out its general form. The corridor leading to the piece is lined with empty beer bottles, while the floor surrounding the former monument is covered with broken glass and half-smashed beer bottles.

Please Read Responsibly: A 12-Part Detective Series Printed On Beer Labels

December 1, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Massachusetts microbrewery Just Beer has released a limited edition case of IPA with a 12-chapter detective melodrama printed on the labels.

“The Case of the IPA” is a hard-boiled detective farce printed chapter by chapter on 12 bottles of a newly released India Pale Ale. Each 22 ounce bottle not only has 22 ounces of brilliantly deduced IPA, but also 1 of the 12 chapters of the story. Each case has 12 bottles, which makes for the entire tale told in a case. And so, the Case of the IPA is indeed a case of the IPA.

Brewed by Harry Smith, written by Paul Goodchild.
