oops! aka: every can known to man

december 31st

i was too busy popping bottles of champagne to grab the camera and finish how about this?
i won't stop, i'll keep shotgunning until i've done every can known to man.
in fact i like the sound of that and maybe that will be a new two holes slogan!

"every can known to man"

i think my body has told me not to worry about doing a new can every 24 hours, which is a relief, it makes the idea much more chill and laid back and that's how i'm trying to roll in this new year.

so keeps your eyes peeled for new cans, foreign cans, tequila in a can...whatever it is i'm in. unless it's jenkem in a can.

and if i pass through your town or you pass through mine, lets hang out and have some fun!

tallgrass oasis (16oz)

december 30th

another gem from the tallgrass brewing company they will always be special to me because even though they make amazing craft beer that is meant to be enjoyed at a slower pace, they understand that in america we have the right to enjoy tasty canned brews however we damn well please.

mgd light (12oz)

december 29th

yum, water. i was sitting on the toilet and i bet this taste similar to the water in the tank.

Tuesday, December 28, 2010

pimm's & lemonade (8.45oz)

december 28th

refreshing and leaves a wonderful aftertaste in your mouth. i am glad i'm not british but if i was i would drink this on the regular. thanks to emily for bringing some awesome new cans back with her!

brewer's art resurrection (12oz)

december 27th

a great craft beer that i was psyched to find while on a brief stop in delaware. shotgunning this made me forget the nightmare and pain of picking up the slack from new york city's sanitation department and their lack of ability to deal with large amounts of snow.
it's always exciting when you find a new 12oz can instead of a new 24oz can, although i would like to track down a few more 32oz's or bigger someday soon.

the club: manhattan (6.75oz)

december 26th

i was saving this can specifically for shotgunning in manhattan, however we were only there for a short time because we didn't want to get stuck in the snow. we made it to sunset park and then happily got stuck with friends there! everyone that passed me while i was shotgunning was very supportive and it made me miss the great city of new york. the club is a great idea and i hope to find all the varieties to shotgun someday.

tallgrass ale (16oz)

december 25th

the best christmas present anyone could ask! and good beer at that. has a bit of a toffee taste and makes you want to dance when the last of it crosses your tongue. i hope everyone had some wonderful holidays.

Friday, December 24, 2010

honey brown (24oz)

december 24th

so smooth to shotgun, i only passed it off because tyler had nothing to shotgun and i wanted to be fair. 24 ounces of lightly malty brew with a somewhat sweet finish. thanks to addison and tyler and satan for making this shotgun perfect.

Thursday, December 23, 2010

floppin' crappie ale (12oz)

december 23rd

a well designed can sent all the way from wisconsin. a huge thanks to melanie and andy for sending me a can from their hometown! and thanks to northwoods brewing corp for brewing this floppin' crappie ale. they seem to have a great selection of beers and i would love to track down everything they've got in a can at some point. check out andy's band purge the woods, i was unfamiliar with them when i shotgunned this otherwise i would have turned off tenement and got down with the grind

Wednesday, December 22, 2010

tecate (24oz)

december 22nd

this was one of those days where i was feeling pretty out of it and just wanted to call it a night, however, i had an obligation to shotgun a beer so i followed through while remaining in a relaxing seated position and enjoyed some good ol' fashioned southpark

Tuesday, December 21, 2010

ic light (12oz)

december 21st

mike always comes through with some stuff i've never heard of before...and he's from ny! wtf! i've had iron city before and it makes sense that a light version exists, but i can honestly say that i've never seen this ic light before. apparently they also brew something called augustiner, does anyone know if it comes in a can and where to get one?

Monday, December 20, 2010

oberon (16oz)

december 20th

that's right...cans from across the world, i have hopes that someday i will have shotgunned one of every can that has been released since 2009. keep your eyes peeled for new and exciting beverages and if you see a can that you don't think i can handle, please challenge me so i can prove you wrong.

Sunday, December 19, 2010

stack (24oz)

december 19th

i had been holding the stack can off for awhile, i have to admit i was worried that i wouldn't be able to keep it down (ryan was confident from the get go, in fact he thoroughly enjoys a can of stack on the regular) in the end it wasn't a bad experience at all, in fact the stack gave me quite a boost for awhile and then i passed out on the couch and don't remember opening or stealing christmas gifts at all.

Saturday, December 18, 2010

lone star (16oz)

december 18th

hell yeah, lew comes through with another tasty texas can! i appreciate beautiful cans and the fact that is limited edition makes it look even better on the shelf. so now that lone star is done...who's got a can of lone star light lying around?

Friday, December 17, 2010

i might have fucked real good! i think i might have recorded over three days of shotguns...fuck me.

Thursday, December 16, 2010

schlitz (24oz)

i'm doing my best to locate this video, but i think it has been recorded over.

Wednesday, December 15, 2010

caldera pale ale(12oz)

i think i recorded over this shotgun. i hate when i do that! i can assure you that it was a sweet video and it gave lots of praise to this delectable caldera brew

Tuesday, December 14, 2010

bavaria (16oz)

december 14th

richmond seems to be quieting down for the holidays...i should try some more covert shotguns and take advantage of this opportunity. it was too cold outside and the can was even colder so i had to pull out before my throat froze...if you know what i mean.

Monday, December 13, 2010

cascade pale ale (12oz)

december 13th

steven's point brewery does it again! another tasty can that i am proud to be able to shotgun. now i do tend towards ipa's but this is a great example of an american pale ale for sure.

Sunday, December 12, 2010

pearl (12oz)

december 12th

good stuff, pretty can and i was psyched to get this package but i have to admit that i even more psyched to get the awesome 7" and tape that were in the box! thanks lew!

Saturday, December 11, 2010

lomza (12oz)

december 11th

i'm still having a good time with this adventure but i know it's probably getting boring for everyone else out there. i promise i'll do what i can to make this exciting...i think just the idea that i'm gonna make it through the year should be all the excitement anyone needs!

Friday, December 10, 2010

beerlao (12oz)

december 10th

early morning shotgun! the first time i think i've ever had a beer from the lao people's democratic republic. sturdy can, nice flow, no complaints.

Thursday, December 9, 2010

zlaty hrad (16oz)

december 9th

a duel that i knew i would never win. it's nearing the end of the year and i've shotgunned with quite a few people throughout this project...but none can shotgun as fast as ricky. happy birthday and thanks to ricky for this shotgun duel!

Wednesday, December 8, 2010

gennesee ice (24oz)

december 8th

there is a first time for everything...including ones first 24oz shotgun. no silly, not me! anyways, gennesee isn't something you can usually find in richmond (except sometimes ocean mart), luckily mike's brother procured a few different cans way up in new york.

Tuesday, December 7, 2010

lionshead light (16oz)

december 7th

sometimes i wish i could shotgun a light version and regular version of the same beer one after another to taste if there is a drastic difference even at a quick pace. however, that was not the case this time and i have to say, and maybe it was just the right time and place, but i enjoyed this light version of lionshead.

Monday, December 6, 2010

baltika 9 (16oz)

december 6th

birthday icing! the cake you see below was made by mike for ryan's birthday and it had a special smirnoff ice baked friends are obviously very creative.
thanks to ryan for having a birthday and shotgunning a baltika 9 with me on it.

Sunday, December 5, 2010

michelob ultra lime cactus (12oz)

december 5th

there is no doubt in my mind that this video got recorded over.
i want to interview all those who there and shotgunned one with me as some sort of proof. until is the can:

hollandia (16oz)

december 3rd

this is something that used to $.50 a can in brooklyn, i guess now it's considered fancier, either that or the bodega we always got it from had a bunch of cans that "fell off the truck" pretty good brew nonetheless.
the gentleman i am shotgunning next to is a work by stuart dumais, you can catch his show at studio 23 through december 30th

Thursday, December 2, 2010

euphoria pale ale (12oz)

december 2nd

hope you like my little rant. and i hope you're with me when it comes time to take out the shitty landlords and dance on their graves.

Wednesday, December 1, 2010

polar beer (16oz)

december 1st

the final countdown. one month to go. today's can comes all the way from iceland, and it has an interesting history that i just learned of. apparently beer was banned in iceland until march 1st, 1989 (too bad i didn't have this can or information by march 1st this year!) but polar beer was brewed under a special license, specifically for british troops that were in iceland during ww II. march 1st is now beer day in iceland and i am going to do my best to be there shotgunning one of these upcoming beer days.

Tuesday, November 30, 2010

karpackie mocne (16oz)

november 30th

i'm tryna take this shit global. my goal now is to shotgun a can of everything that exists in this day and age (and some old expired stuff if ya got it)
tell your friends overseas to check out the wonderful world of frankie twoholes

Monday, November 29, 2010

rheingold (12oz)

november 29th

now i have to admit that even though i know of the connection between rheingold and new york...for the 8 years i was in brooklyn i didn't see it around too often. and it's not like i tried to avoid it, in fact i enjoy a rheingold from time to time. it's so dry...extra dry even
maybe one day i'll be miss rheingold

Sunday, November 28, 2010

ten fidy (12oz)

november 28th

so good! it's like shotgunning chocolate or something. goes down smooth and easy.
thanks oskar blues i can now say i have shotgunned every one of your canned brews

Saturday, November 27, 2010

point special lager (12oz)

november 27th

another one of the cans that stevens point brewery sent, i think it's awesome that i happened upon the cans of nude beach so shortly after receiving the other cans from them. it's been a point brewery kinda month!

Friday, November 26, 2010

yuengling black & tan (12oz)

november 26th

the one and only mr jason duncan shotguns a black & tan on the busiest shopping day of the year...we've obviously got our priorities in line.

Thursday, November 25, 2010

the club: long island iced tea (6.75oz)

november 25th

time for some more of the club, also time to get corny. thanksgiving morning, cold & windy on the bay in patchogue. a long island iced tea shotgunned on long island. hope everyone got to spend time with loved ones of some sort.

Wednesday, November 24, 2010

point nude beach (12oz)

november 24th

it was so good to go back to long island and see friends! i had found a 12pack of nude beach at eagle provisions in brooklyn on my way out, so we decided to crack it and next thing we knew, there were only three left so we decided to shotgun them. a big thanks to chris and alyssa for being awesome, i wish them a long happy life together and am looking forward to being friends with them forever. chris' can bit his lip...always a risk when shotgunning, look out!

Tuesday, November 23, 2010

penn's best na (12oz)

november 23rd

i'm not an alcoholic, i just needed to shotgun a non-alcoholic beer before driving to new york. i do not condone drinking and driving.

Monday, November 22, 2010

the club: margarita (6.75oz)

november 22nd

liquor's in it! margarita in a can? sign me up! i had never seen "the club" before...but i'm so into it. a big thanks to kaycie's mom for bringing up a few cans. i started it off with the margarita (the lowest alcohol content of the three) to make sure i could handle the club. up next is the long island iced tea, followed by the manhattan.
this stuff comes in more varieties than one might expect.
i hope to have shotgunned at least one of each someday
keep your eyes out for these:

Censored on the Beach
Gin Martini
Pina Colada
Vodka Martini
Whiskey Sour

Sunday, November 21, 2010

o'douls (12oz)

november 21st

i had never heard of fizzball before moving to richmond, everything i learned about fizzball...i learned from leo heinzel. originally, i believe, this game was played with soda or pop, but this time around we went with non-alcoholic beer. at the time, i was running low on cans to make it through the year and just my luck, odoul's only comes in 12 packs! what better use for 11 cans of o'douls than fizzball?

fizzball is played sometime between 2:33 and 5:00 on the 3rd sunday of every november at chimborazo playground.
see you there!

Saturday, November 20, 2010

point classic amber (12oz)

november 20th

who is the best brewery ever? that would have to be stevens point brewery because they hooked me up with a wonderful variety of canned beer that they hand crafted just for me! first up was the point classic amber, the darkly lit, loud gallery didn't do the can justice, it's a nice looking can that had a superb snap when opened and it finished with a crisp, clean aftertaste. thank to stevens point for sending this and thanks to positiveland for making me feel killer about myself and my shotgun project.

Thursday, November 18, 2010

budweiser & clamato (16oz)

november 18th

mmmmm....the warm burning sensation of shotgunning chelada, even after this year is over it will always be a part of me.

Wednesday, November 17, 2010

joose: kiwi strawberry (23.5oz)

november 17th

the joose experiment...see what happens to a sober 170lb male after shotgunning a can of 12% joose! it actually wasn't that great, i prefer a joose midway through the night, this just made me silly for 20 minutes and then tired.

Tuesday, November 16, 2010

fireside chat (12oz)

november 16th

this is what happens (and it has happened a few times this year) when you hand someone the camera after you had already hit the record button. they hit the record button themselves which turns the camera off. i'm looking into getting a picture or two that were taken of this shotgun experience.

Monday, November 15, 2010

tilt: green (24oz)

november 15th

this sucks. i don't like green tilt, probably never will. i like cock sparrer, probably always will.

Sunday, November 14, 2010

blackthorn cider (16.9oz)

november 14th

the balloons in my basket were from an unrelated photo shoot earlier in the day but i figured i should put them to use and keep them in my shotgun video. this blackthorn was on point for this wonderful brisk fall day.

Saturday, November 13, 2010

mike's hard black cherry lemonade (16oz)

november 13th

i got pretty lazy about editing this one so it's pretty raw. i had a great day on this particular saturday. again...a big shout out to the rota kids for putting together a sweet ride/race!

Friday, November 12, 2010

o'fallon wheach (12oz)

november 12th

i was worried that this was gonna be gross like a sam adams cherry wheat...but i was wrong, it was great. there wasn't an overpowering peach taste, just a nice light overtone. i'm sure o'fallon brewery has got to have a few more brews in cans, hopefully i can get my hands on them!

Thursday, November 11, 2010

core: strawberry lemonade (23.5oz)

november 11th

this stuff is hard to find. it was around for a week or two and then it disappeared. luckily i had one to stashed away to shotgun.

WHOA WHOA WHOA! i apoligize to all my fans, i've been duped! strawberry lemonade core does not have caffeine or taurine or guarana or ginseng or damiana or mashmallow! apparently the strawberry lemonade, spiked punch and triple berry (which i've never even seen) are all stimulant free.
check it out:

Wednesday, November 10, 2010

a:m white citrus (12.6oz)

november 10th and flavor in an aluminum bottle. i learned from my last attempt and cracked the top prior to making a shotgun hole. this stuff went down pretty smooth and has an interesting sweet vanilla taste. i'd like to come across the black raspberry flavor someday. their website doesn't seem to work so here is their facebook
