Musical Beer Packaging

Just a design concept – but HOW FREAKIN’ COOL!!!! Musical Beer. I’d drink just to play. Take a look at the packaging – the carton folds down to hold the bottles. “Even when you’re baroque”   On the back of each bottle, you’ll see the label that shows you where you have to drink until […]
