Art on Vacation

Art on Vacation

Our family is on vacation this week.  While jewelry design is also taking a break, creating a little art is not.  We have a little cottage home down in Florida and we are currently remodeling the kitchen.  During one of our prior trips, we found some fabulous cabinets at a Habitat for Humanity ReStore.  I didn’t even know these stores existed until...

Gone Hunting….well, not really…

Gone Hunting….well, not really…

This weekend, hunting season opens in Michigan.  I thought it was appropriate to select a beer in honor of the occasion.  I’m not actually planning to feature this brand in a design (at least I don’t think I will).  However, I loved the deer on the bottle cap.  The image is silver on silver and was a bit tricky to photo.  The beer is Dominion...

Jewelry Inspired by Badass Beer

Jewelry Inspired by Badass Beer

Kid Rock’s Badass Beer was the latest brew of focus here at Drinks to Design.  I am inspired by the rebel attitude of the beer and obviously excited about the “born in Michigan” angle!  I knew that I wanted the designs to have a bit of a rocker edge, yet be very wearable in a variety of situations. The Materials When I considered the parts...

The Badass Backstory

The Badass Backstory

I started the research on the backstory for Badass beer and soon realized that much of the story I already knew.  However, that didn’t make it any less fun or interesting to pull together my favorite content for this post.  I’ve already started to work on the jewelry designs and I’m excited for the direction they are taking. Update on the...

The Taste of Badass Beer

The Taste of Badass Beer

The name of the beer is just cool.  And, somehow you feel a little cool or “bad-boy esque” when someone asks what you are drinking and you respond with “Badass”.  Leave it to Kid Rock to come up with a name like this for a beer! Thoughts from the Brand From the bottle, the description has just as much attitude as the name itself: It’s...

Introducing…..Badass

Introducing…..Badass

I’ve been wanting to feature Badass beer for a while now.  For me, this is not a new beer, but one that reminds me of summertime in Michigan. Badass is brewed right here in Michigan and is “Kid Rock’s beer”.  I’ll explain more in the backstory….the headline is that Kid Rock started the brand a few years ago to do what he...

Design Inspired by Mississippi Mud

Design Inspired by Mississippi Mud

This week, the focus was on Mississippi Mud – a pre-mixed black and tan.  I loved the growler packing of the brew and was disappointed not to be able to find any information about the brand online. The Process As I set out to create the designs this week, I had three primary “pieces” to work with…the growler, the screw top cap and the...

Mississippi Mud – The Backstory

Mississippi Mud – The Backstory

This week, it was tough to find a backstory on Mississippi Mud.  In fact, I found almost nothing.  Reviews are found on a number of blogs, but there is no website, Facebook page, Twitter account, etc. for the brand. The only interesting fact I was able to find is that the beer is brewed in Utica, NY.  How odd that a brand with the name Mississippi Mud is brewed...

The Taste of Mississippi Mud

I’m still in love with the growler packaging of this beer!  I was anxious to open it up and get a taste of the brew. Thoughts from the Brand From the bottle, we get this wonderful description of the history behind the brew: Dating back to 18th century England, the custom of blending pale and dark beers has kept the “Black & Tan” a favorite...

Introduction to Mississippi Mud

Introduction to Mississippi Mud

This week, the choice jumped out at me as soon as I stepped foot into the beer aisle.  As I scanned the options, my eyes immediately fell on the cool little Mississippi Mud growler.  The growler stands about 8 or 9 inches tall and has a very distinct personality among all the traditional bottles and cans. After I was hooked by the growler design, I realized...

Jewelry Inspired by Save Our Shore

This week was one of my favorite weeks with the blog so far this year.  Save Our Shores is a wonderful, tasty brew with a great focus – raising money to keep the Gulf shores clean.  Focusing on this brand during the week I was in Marco Island, Florida (on the gulf coast) was the perfect combination to be inspired. The Materials This week, I combined elements...

Save Our Shore – The Backstory

Abita is an interesting brand for me.  For years, I thought this brand was imported to the US.  Since I prefer to try craft beers from this country, I had always made another choice at the store.  Then, I saw Save Our Shore.  The bottle connected me to the brand and got me to dive deep enough to learn that Abita is a town in Louisiana!  The brews are made...

The Taste of Save Our Shore

With such a beautiful bottle and wonderful cause, I was hoping the taste of Save Our Shore was able to live up to my expectations. Thoughts from the Brand On the  bottle, the description is as follows: This unfiltered Weizen Pils is made with Pilsner and Wheat malts.  It is hopped and dry hopped with Sterling and German Perle hops.  It has a brilliant gold...

Introducing Save Our Shore by Abita

This week, our family is on vacation in the place we call our second home – Marco Island, Florida.  Located on the southern tip of the Gulf side of Florida, I’ve visited this little piece of paradise since I was a little girl. Back in 2010, you may remember, that an oil spill flowed for 3 months in the Gulf of Mexico.  Wildlife, shores, and the...
