Metal & Mud makes custom FuzzyBrew pint glasses and magnets

April 27, 2011 By: mike Category: DIY, Homebrew, How to

My girlfriend Sara, who’s an artist and creator of the popular craft/DIY/design blog Metal & Mud, has been making some really cool stuff for FuzzyBrew in the last couple of weeks.

First, she made pint glasses with our FuzzyBrew logo using decal paper. (She also happened to design the logo last year.)

Next, she made some beer bottlecap magnets, using plenty of spent Sierra Nevada and Dogfish Head caps, along with glue, paper, a 1-inch paper punch, magnets and Mod Podge Dimensional Magic.

Check out the posts (here and here). She goes over the processes, step by step, for making the pint glasses and magnets. Also, check out Sara’s Etsy shop, where she sells ceramics and jewelry.

We plan on making some more magnets and giving them out at festivals, so look for us at the next beer event! And many thanks to Sara for making some really sweet FuzzyBrew schwag.

Memphis’ own York Avenue Tavern now with custom pint glasses

York Avenue Tavern pint glass

Woot! York Avenue Tavern now has official pint glasses! Our friend Bridget, who lives up in the Great White North, used some kinda crafty magic to etch onto pint glasses the nom de plume of our 100-year-old residence in Midtown, where the homebrew flows daily.

Pictured is Jeff’s clone of Stone‘s Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale, which never did completely bottle condition. It’s a big beer and I guess the yeast just gave up. Next time we brew a high-gravity beer we’re going to experiment with adding some yeast back in prior to bottling. Anyone have any suggestions or advice about that?

Merry Christmas from FuzzyBrew!

Hope you had a safe and fun holiday, and that Santa brought you everything you wanted.

I got some custom-made FuzzyBrew pint glasses for our tasty homebrew, thanks to Sara.

Gonna drink ’em now while they’re cold. Cheers!

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?
