All hail the Beerkini

October 07, 2011 By: grant Category: Hotties, How to

Instructables user scoochmaroo has managed to combine so many of my interests — crafts, beer and bikinis — all into one glorious how-to.

She has laid out the steps for making your very own beerkini, a combination bikini-bottle opener, which is of course the perfect marriage of practical and sexy and awesome.

Scoochmaroo includes a pattern for the suit for the not one, but two(!) bottle openers strategically placed for awesomeness.

It’s a well put-together tutorial, which by following one will be much more likely to succeed. She offers her best bit of advice at the end:

Unless you are a lycra ninja (which I’m sure some of you are!), save yourselves the multiple headaches that I encountered in dealing with this slippery, fussy material (and I do consider myself a very experienced sewer, as it was my job for about 10 years), and just buy yourself a d$%n swimsuit.   Cut it apart and sew in some bottle openers.  Seriously.  It will take you 20 minutes instead of 20 hours.  And you know it will fit.

Drinkin’ in Puerto Rico

Medalla Light

'Scuse me miss, but you have a smudge on your shirt

Continuing my tradition of writing about my beer travels weeks or months after I’ve returned…

A while back my cousin Brian sent me a message asking what I was doing the following Wednesday. Working, I guess, I replied. Wanna go to Puerto Rico, he asked? Brian is a flight attendant, so I could fly at half-price.

Well, hell yes.

Brian and I are both alumns of West Virginia University (the ‘Eers won!), and they were due to play  Davidson in the Puerto Rico Tip-Off, so the plan was we’d screw around in San Juan, attend the game, do some more screwin around, and head home.

Which is exactly what we did. We had a blast at the game, pretended we were pirates at the forts on old San Juan, and ate some fantastic food.

We hit plenty of bars (shocker, I know) in Condado, San Juan, and spent most evenings shooting the shit by the shore.

We never made it to any brewpubs downtown, but it’s hard to beat the sea spray on a warm evening, even if all that’s being served are pilseners.

I’ll be heading back to Puerto Rico in a few months and hope to get beyond the island’s ever-present brew, Medalla Light, and various imported light lagers, and find some actual craft brew.

Anybody got any good recommendations?

Medalla Light Goddamn delicious Yes, please.
