It’s still early September, but don’t bother pointing it out to this couple crafted by Miro78. He’s wearing lederhosen and holding a pint, she’s wearing a dirndl and holding a pretzel, and they’re no doubt listening to some fabulous oom pah pah music as they celebrate Oktoberfest. Coincidentally, I made bavarian style pretzels just last night (no really, I posted a pic on Facebook).
Way back in October 1810, Crown Prince Ludwig got married to Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen, and the whole of Munich turned out for the party, and they've been partying ever since. But humans started gathering for celebration with beer, food and friends long before that, and builder Ayrlego shows us what it looked like in medieval times (pretty much the same).
Suddenly I'm craving beer and pretzels, not good considering it's 6:45 am, but I have a good excuse. Check out all the fun this group of minifigures is having in this charming and super detailed scene by MinifigNick. Well, maybe not that guy in the middle, he seems to have overdone it perhaps.
Jimmy from JBF Creations just wrapped up his first exhibition at Vinochope in Perpignan, France. We've already featured several of the pieces from this show, how can you go wrong blending wine, beer, yummy snacks and LEGO? As a thank you he created this brilliant reproduction of their logo, which I'm sure will be proudly displayed in the shop.
There is an unmistakable link between beer and building. I've seen it a lot in my years as an AFOL, and it's something I didn't notice at first, but looking back it was obvious the whole time. So when the two collide as elegantly as this MOC by builder J.B.F. it just seems natural. As we ramp up to Bricks LA this weekend, you can bet beer is in the future, and I'll be thinking of this MOC I'm sure.
I love getting fooled by MOCs (well, most of the time). I almost scrolled right past this brilliant presentation by J.B.F. At first glance, this just looks like a bottle of wine, a craft beer and a yummy snack. But don't be fooled, while still delicious, this is all bricks (and stickers of course).
