Default "dream" beer pictures/labels

So most crazy posts start out with... I had this idea...

Well, I have this idea... I have been messing with GIMP more and more and want to make a picture/collage of all of our 'dream beers'.

What I want is beer ideas. I DO NOT want this to turn into an argument over which beer is better- but rather, a list of beers that we dream about. Essentially, if you opened someone's fridge, and saw one or more of these beers, you would know immediately that they are beer lovers. (Maybe include 'hard-to-get' beers?)

Here's what I'm thinking of:
-Dogfish Head 120 IPA (Maybe the 90?)
-Sam Adam's Utopia
-Westvleteren (12?)
... etc...

Any other ideas?


ps- I was going to cartoon-ize-ish the beers and collage them together with a cool looking background, I'll post a sample when I get to work on this.

I predict an argument along the lines of "why would you pick That Beer as your dream beer. it's terrible!", but.... I'll contribute:

Bell's 2-Hearted Ale
Sammy Smith's Taddy Porter
Highland's Gaelic Ale

I agree with these two. I also just had Bam Biere at Jolly Pumpkin. That might have to be on the list as well.

Default Just a start... need some feedback

Ok here is a start... (a.k.a. unfinished)



I like how it's coming together, BUT I didn't want to upload the *.png file- it was too big, so I converted it to a jpg- hence the quality loss (pixelish-ness).

I'm still learning a lot about inkscape- and it's soooo much fun. I just love that calligraphy tool. Anyways, here is what I will do...

1- Add more beers (in the back)
2- Add a background... ??? ... I'm not sure what to do with the background- any input???

ps- I just noticed that the bottle shine (the blur effect) on the Dupont bottle did not make it through- I'll update that later.
