Here are some pics of the caps that arrived in the mail..

From Steve, [in California]

I thought he was joking when he said he was drinking Monty Python Holy Grail Ale… but here they are

and some from Sierra Nevada.. I love the colour..

From Roger, [who lives in Kentucky]

The Mountain ones are very minimalistic… I like them…

And the Budweiser caps are different to the ones available here…

These are from John in Florida.

These caps with “Mike’s” are fabulous…

I am sure that I will find a few Mikes who will just have to have a board with their name on it…

The last lot came from Bulgaria…

The Zodiac… I figure that they will look good around the outside of a Lazy Larry.. what do you think… limited edition of course…numbered and signed by the artiste…
Thank you to all who have sent caps and to those who have sent but not been received… I will be posting all the boards that I make with these caps…

I especially like the “Holy Grail” & “Zodiac” caps. Looking forward to the projects featuring those!

nice…i think you should request the whole bottle…or is that another project? Maybe send out a a request for bottles with the label on them…and that you have a special technique for removing the label…

I like the Holy Grail one as well, but the Zodiac caps are great. I can picture the Zodiac on a round project such as the Lazy Larry. Definitely, do that. Your mind must be going crazy thinking about where these will go.

Sierra Nevada is my favorite beer. Getting the caps off without bending them was a challenge.

Holy Grail Ale…that was a fun find. “Tempered over burning witches”.

Love the zodiac caps. Gotta make something extra special with those, Larry. Maybe a “Milky Way” themed board.

Do you need more caps? I drink off the wall beer (read > $10 6-packs) and would be willing to gather and send more caps your way. PM me know if you need anymore.
