In the Back of the Store

Any ideas what this is?

How about this?

This ought to give it away:

It’s a bottle cap self portrait. I don’t know too much about it or the artist, other than a discussion of it came up in a Facebook thread Jim was part of this morning and the art piece piqued his interest. All he knew was that it was in a bar on the west side of G Street, so after lunch we went hunting. Turns out, it’s here, at The Davis Beer Shoppe:

(Which, I’m chagrined to admit, I didn’t really know existed..) It’s in the back of the shop and, from a distance, looks like this:

It was cool.  And good to know we have a beer store that’s got a ton of different kinds of beers (reminiscent of Mansion Cellars back in the 80s, which was both a wine and beer tasting store, and which held that great challenge, Around the World in 80 Beers, where patrons logged the beers they’d tasted for a chance to get their name engraved on a large piece of wall art if they purchased 80 different bottles of beer over some period of time… which I did, which was great fun.) The Davis Beer Shoppe Looks like a pretty nice place to hang out.. low key, not too fancied up. Maybe the real deal if you’re a beer person.

    Great place to try new beers, buy beer and hang out without TVs blaring


  2. I think I knew it was there…. but I’m not a beer drinker. Wish I was. This might entice me to try something. Cool bottle cap portrait.
