Art by Beer Zombies – Rattlecan, Venitian resort and casino

The now closed space was once a street art inspired restaurant and bar inside the Venetian Casino on the Las Vegas strip. It was co owned by Chef Sammy D and HGTV’s Antonio Ballatore. My work was in the hallways where I did a zombie themed wheat paste collage.

Art by Beer Zombies – Distressed Statue

Once again a unique blank canvas’ was given to me. This time a 500 pound grey statue was dropped off to me with the instructions “make it look like its been left out and vandalized”. I ended up breaking the hands and using a very old recipe i found online using lime salt to white wash it. Then went to town with paint pens and sharpies, the coolest part was we moved the statue into a busy are and left pens for people to add to it. A crane was used to hoist the statue to its resting place about 12 feet off the ground.

Art by Beer Zombies – ATM machine

I’m a huge fan of unique canvas’ this one was for sure a first. Was asked to make an ATM machine look interesting.The ATM was going into a craft cocktail bar so i played along the theme of the place. Ended up painting it and adding texture to the surface with sand and glue. Finished it off with some prohibition wheat paste and paints.

Art by Beer Zombies – Hidden walk in door

This was a pretty fun challenge. the owner of the bar wanted to hide the walk in cooler doors from the bar guests so this is what I came up with. I redid the design a few months later to match the theme of the bar a little better.

Art by Beer Zombies – Commonwealth sticker doors

This is a project I started in 2012, it involved covering the glass doors that hide the speakeasy “the laundry room” within Commonwealth. The initial project took approximately 5000+ street art stickers that where sent to me from all over the world. I personally selected and put up all the stickers. I currently curate the door way reapplying and refreshing the ever changing and evolving work of art. The doorway has become a very well known spot in Las Vegas to see sticker art. People come from all over and add their own pieces of work making it a very unique installation project.

Beer Review – Ninja Vs. Unicorn – Pipeworks Brewing

image (2) image (1)

 

Ninja Vs. Unicorn – Pipeworks Brewing 

American double IPA , DIPA

8.5% ABV

50 IBU

APPEARANCE: I imagine if a ninja’s sword where to chop the head of a Unicorn, he would wipe his blade clean on his ninja pajamas. The color on his ninja costume would be reminiscent of the way this lovely beer poured. A beautiful golden amber, with sparkling highlights that really hypnotize you when you stair into it. Produced a nice big loose white head that lingering cap.

 

AROMA: Drinking this out in the forest has intensified the pine aromas, all around me the pine cones are falling. Getting tons of sticky pine and huge resinous piney hops coming off the pour. Fresh sliced juicy grapefruit, like the ones on “fruit ninja” game from my iPhone. Followed by some over ripe orange and tangerines. There is a wonderful maltiness that translate into toasted bread and sugar cookies. The nose on this beer is amazing. I imagine this is what a unicorn fart would smell like!

 

TASTE: After the ninja chopped the head off of this mythical beast, the blood spilled and filled bottle upon bottle of this beer. Usually when a beer has such an outstanding nose the taste doesn’t live up. Not in this case, the flavor layers are all right there in line with the aroma. For a beer that claims 10 ibu it inst a palate wrecker at all,  Its actually very easy drinking. The piney hops come flying at you like a ninja star. Super dank that’s followed up with a big bursting citrus flavor. The sweet malts do make an appearance like a piece of toast with a grapefruit/orange marmalade. There is a some heat on this beer, which is odd with the abv coming in at 8.5%.

 

MOUTHFEEL: Medium body with a moderate carbonation. there is a very pleasant syrupy creaminess that makes this a really smooth drinking ipa. Lots of that resiouness pine comes through on the mouthfeel, really coating the entire mouth. Leaves the mouth with a long lasting lingering finish.

 

OVERALL: Not sure if Ninja Vs.Unicorn  is a the name it should have. Its so balanced that it should be called Ninja Sex Unicorn. Huge fan of every aspect of this beer, including the little heat that comes out i’m assuming from the battle. Speaking of battles I think the real winner was me! I just saw that they are going to start canning this beer, when that happens I will be trading for a case at a time. Truly everything I would want and ask for out of a dipa.

 

RATING: 4.5/5 Zombie Heads!
