Crafting with coasters (in the garage!)

Coaster display in the garage

Coasters from various bars and brewpubs have been stacking up at my house for months now. For awhile, I was saving them just to save them. Then I saw a display of coasters on the wall at Mid-South Malts and got inspired.

This was a quick-and-easy project that helped brighten an empty wall in my attached garage, right between the button for the garage door and the door that leads into my house.

I bought a package of Scotch Indoor Mounting Squares for about $5 at a local home improvement store. I affixed one square to the back of each coaster and stuck them on the wall. That’s it!

It looks great now, and I can still add more as I collect more.

Holiday gift ideas for the beer lover

December 06, 2010 By: mike Category: Oddities

If you’re looking for a holiday gift for a beer lover, CraftBeer.com has put together a very cool (and sometimes hilarious) Beer Lovers Holiday Gift Guide, which includes ideas for just about every category of beer enthusiast.

The beer geeks might want a membership to the Beer T-Shirt Club or maybe an iBottleOpener.

For the beer entertainer, how about some custom coasters?

I bet Grant would want a Port-a-Pint, a retractable pint glass for the outdoor enthusiast.

Meanwhile, my dog Jack is dying for a Bark-for-Beer collar, “the four-legged bottle opener for the party animal.” See below.

I actually do need some new pint glasses, so that’s on my list. (Hint, hint.)

What do you want this holiday season?
