Brew News: Beer As Art?

The Huffington Post ran a story today about an industrious drinker who saved a year’s worth of bottles and built a rather unique frame for his bed. Using 318 Heineken bottles (212 large ones and 106 small ones) and some fluorescent lighting, New Zealand carpenter Steve Sandvoss created a one-of-a-kind bed room accessory. He then sold the bed frame online for $3,000. Two questions:

  1. Couldn’t he find a source of green glass other than Heineken (talk about an artist suffering for his work)?
  2. Would your better half allow you the time to work on your “art”?

  1. What is the best thing about Heineken? The song they use in one of the commercials!!!! I think most modern dances may have been derived from this gem, including the Batusi, the Hokey Pokey, Michael Jackson’s Thriller, and the Wedding Chicken Dance!


  2. Quite an interesting find! I give the man an A+ for originality and an F+ for a poor choice of materials. A bit fragile no?

    And here’s one of the Heineken ads referenced by Miracle Max. Way cool!


  3. There are a couple of floor table lights made out of beer bottles, at The Dogfish Head Brewery in Milton, DE. I thought they were pretty cool. Now… what to do with a ton of bottle caps… any suggestions??
