Okay, I know I say this for every challenge, but this one is DEFINITELY my favorite BY FAR!
Some background: I work in the restaurant industry. I work in a full service family restaurant. We started featuring and highlighting a craft brew or micro brew every week for cheap so people would be more likely to try these interesting brews. We have one on tap and a different one in a bottle. It worked! We upped our beer sales over the last year! Yay! I've seen lots and lots of labels, but the MOST exciting is to see what the tap handles are!
So for this challenge I used the 'just kicked' brew's tap handle, the current brew's tap handle and the 'on deck' brew's tap handle that we had at work. Here they are...
|DuClaw Brewing Co of BelAir MD. Kona Brewing Co of Kailua-Kona HI. Blue Point Brewery of Patchogue NY.|
Well, I have two finished. The wizard seems easy, but I am waiting on the perfect wizard focal for him, I'll post when I find it. So here are my other two.
First up Neon Gypsy by DuClaw Brewing:
Next up Koko Brown by Kona Brewing:
Allegory Gallery always has some cool lava rock strands, so I knew I wanted to use those... Then I found some white coral chips and I had some blue cultured sea glass and wooden tube beads. The flower made some changes along the way until I found this laser cut wood flower at Allegory Gallery. Even though there is no bird on the handle, I imagine there are some in Hawaii, ;-) so I had to add a Humblebeads birdie!
Thanks Eric and Sarajo for this challenge! I will be newly inspired weekly by our tap handles at work. Keep your eyes on my blog for the Blue Point wizard to make his debut.
