I'm sure this has been posted before...but, I was too lazy to search, and the idea dawns upon me 2 sips into my Smithwick's tonight..
I have a kegerator for dispensing my homebrew.
It is nice to be able to proudly display my success, and promote my "special" and "Limited" edition brews (that didn't turn out so well) for friends and visitors.
I had been using some magnetic dry erase plaques, but those never last, and are no longer made that I can find...
It has dawned upon me that chalkboard is ever versatile, and there may be magnetic backed 2x2 or up to 4x4" chalkboard plaques that could be used to identify current offerings.
In my initial search, I found a site that peddles these products $10 per set minimum of 15 sets per order, which each set containing 4 "coasters" - these are 4x4" in size. (http://www.beau-coup.com/chalkboard_coasters.htm
well some quick math and a a nasty flashback to elementary school tells me:
2.50 per "coaster"
$150 for order = 60 "coasters" at $2.50 each - not counting S&H.
I only want 6 ($15 worth). Anyone think we could get a group buy going?
Anyone else have a better idea on how to label what is on tap, without using 2" masking tape and a sharpie?
This plan would also call for "coasters" to be glued, mounted or otherwise attached to your kegerator. Mounting magnetic backing would add additional expense.
Anyone know of a better source for this stuff to avoid a group buy?
