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

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!

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!

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:

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

mmm....vodka 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

this is me begging for a can of beer that i thought i had coming to me, but unfortunately someone else snagged it up. thanks to archer liquors for having at least this in stock. and a big thanks to the onion pub & brewery for creating this awesome pale ale and the pumpkin ale that i'll probably never get to experience.
let me know if you can get a can of this:

i think sometimes i embarrass my loved ones with my drunken or even sober camera antics.
this is one of those cases. and i was sober too...at least when i filmed this and for about 5 minutes after.
what a brilliant red!

happy birthday to bernadette!
we were supposed to shotgun strongbow together (which will have to happen before the year is through) for her birthday but things didn't work out that way. luckily, on the drive out to the camping spot we stopped at a store that sold singles of busch non-alcoholic. hooray! now i don't have to buy a 6 pack of it!

my first attempt at an aluminum bottle. i now know that it would help to crack the top first and then screw it back on tight to avoid having to awkwardly crack the cap while holding the can to my mouth, it's just not the same as popping the tab. thanks to unfun for shotgunning with me! as soon as the first can was cracked a cop car slowly pulled by, but when it was out of sight we got our gun on and i think that single shotgun put everyone in a killer mood and kept us in party mode all night long.
unfun just put out a new album called "sick outside view" you should check it out!

this was an interesting adventure. so i was in the middle of making some food and decided i'd step outside to shotgun a beer. there was lots of police commotion going on and i figured it would make nice background noise. after setting up the camera i realized i didn't have my keys so i attempted to renegade it, but at the same time i realized it wasn't gonna happen i also saw something moving under a tarp. i instantly jumped to the conclusion that this was the person that the cops were looking for and i got freaked out and went back inside. upon my arrival inside i realized my food project was getting out of control so i put my beer aside and finished cooking, which turned into eating and then by the time i shotgunned i had completely forgotten about the weird tarp movement across the street. goes to show how on point my short term memory is.

it's like drinking jolly ranchers! sounds good right?! think about it like this though, if you we're to melt down jolly ranchers and drink 24oz's of them, you would probably have to melt over 100, still interested? i think if you care at all about your taste buds you won't put them through anything like this.

it does hurt a little to do a chelada, something about it is just not right. but...as long as it's not coming back up out of your nose, it's forgotten pretty quick.

i stand by my statement, sly fox brewery has yet to let me down. i do love ipa's and this one is in my top ten ipa's for sure. i think i started off the video with a mouth fart because i was babbling and decided to start my shpeel over.
