Travelling man

July was nuts. I planned to do some Star Wars travel over the summer. OSWCC was holding their 25th Anniversary Summer Social, which I didn't want to miss. PSWCS had our Summer Social near Hershey at the end of July. And then the New York club was holding their second ...

Originally I had planned to go out to Ca. the beginning of the week before the con to spend some time at the Disney parks, but when I found out I'd be working at that time, I didn't want to take that much time off of work. My next thought ...

Friday

A bunch of the "SC" attendees descended on Moretti's Restaurant in Rosemont the night before for some "pre-shenanigans shenanigans" starting @ 5 pm. (A big thank you to Moretti's to be able to accommodate our group of 20+ at such short notice) We ate, drank, and had a really ...

Last week I received an IM from a friend who's an administrator of a Facebook group.  "If you want this down LMK."  I looked at the screen grab and saw two of my older Droids customs!

Some (but I don't believe all, so apologies to any I've left out) of the people that will be in attendance (via their Twitter handles) are:

on 2022-07-13, 07:56:30

My second Creature Cantina Brewing Company custom empty beer can is now on sale!

CreatureCantina.com Image

Produced in a one-time run of 24 pieces, each can features my own original artwork.

CreatureCantina.com Image

The label features fan-favorite Mandalorian Din Djarin, and the name is a complete rip-off of his favorite profane utterance.

CreatureCantina.com Image

The cans are actual, sealed 12 oz. aluminum beverage cans. But sadly, they're completely empty. As much as I'd love to send my friends some beer, that's neither legal nor convenient.

CreatureCantina.com Image

If you'd like to buy one, the cost is $20 per can shipped in the USA, $16 + shipping internationally. Email billcable@gmail.com with your mailing address and await payment instructions!

CreatureCantina.com Image

SPECIAL OFFER! - If you missed out on my first Creature Cantina Brewing Company can, I still have a limited number available! You can purchase a 2-pack for $35 shipped (US) while supplies last!

Action Figures & Their Beers -- Mind Trick

by Bill Cable
on 2022-07-13, 07:38:50

Browsing the beer aisles a couple weeks back, I stumbled across a brew I knew I needed to review...

CreatureCantina.com Image

Fat Head's Brewery's "Head Trip" is a Belgian Tripel Ale... wait what??... I thought Fat Head's only made IPAs! Looking at their website it turns out they mostly make IPAs, but they have a healthy selection of other styles. And when one of those kinda fits in with Star Wars, it's a beer I gotta get!

How is it? Wonderful. I am a big, huge fan of Belgian ales. And this 9.0% ABV example features everything I enjoy in spades. It starts with a slight citrus note, but what hits hardest is its juicy, slick mouth feel. The best way I can describe it is buttery. It's a clean quaff, with a mellow, pleasant, slightly clovey aftertaste. This isn't a beer I'd describe as complex or evolving. It does one thing, but it does it perfectly.

To pair with this beer, I went with the iconic Vintage Obi-Wan Kenobi figure. The reasons should be obvious. First thing, dude on the can is wearing a brown hooded cloak that's unmistakably a Jedi's garb. Secondly, what better describes the Jedi Mind Trick than forcing a head trip on some weak-willed jerk? This pairing could not be more on-the-nose!

Drink if you also enjoy: Belgian-style Ales.

CCBC Dank Farrik: Good progress made!

I pretty much finished the character art for my next Creature Cantina Brewing Company project. Please note the loud orange background is a placeholder... probably.

CreatureCantina.com Image

I need to do some test prints to see how much detail is retained before I finalize the art and work on the background, but it's coming along nicely. I'm thinking I'll be able to put them together over the weekend and have them on sale next week!

Here's a close-up of the character, so you can appreciate how much work I put into these things.

Check back next week for your opportunity to add one of these to your collection!



CCBC new release forthcoming: Dank Farrik!!

by Bill Cable
on 2022-06-29, 08:05:30

The Creature Cantina Brewing Company is thrilled to announce we've begun brewing the second release of our award-winning, globally-acclaimed line of empty beer cans. For this second project, we're going (co)Mando!

CreatureCantina.com Image

I've wanted to do a second one of these for a while, but I've been struggling for inspiration. I have one idea in my head that I'm holding onto, but I kinda didn't want to do Cantina aliens back-to-back. I really wanted to tap into one of the more popular characters... Fett, Vader, Grogu... someone like that. But unlike my Droids customs where I'm always depicting a scene, these cans are more about a bold image. It's a different process, and nothing would pop into my head.

I was getting frustrated, Dank Farrik!

And there it was.

CreatureCantina.com Image

As it just so happens, Din Djarin's favorite profane utterance is also often used to describe particularly pungent IPAs. Especially IPAs that remind folks of the smell of marijuana. I've tried a few of them over the years, and they're not my thing, but I figure they still could make for a good can design. After all, I'm not asking anyone to drink the stuff... just appreciate the label.

With the holiday weekend coming up, who knows... I could have my next beer can ready to sell next week. Stay tuned!
