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)

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

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.

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.

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

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

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?

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.

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.

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.

schlitz (24oz)

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

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
