Beer Origami Art

moose beer thingThere is nothing better than mixing two loves in life to create one magically delicious feast for the mind: wifi and coffee, bacon and donuts, bath time and beer, origami and bear moose.

OriirO shared this skillfully crafted piece of artwork on today inspired by a bottle of Anderson Valley's Seasonal Winter Solstice. The moose bear logo of Anderson Valley is turned into a grey wood pulped mass of Japanese folding expertise.

Origami is one of those art forms that requires geometry skills, patience and a touch of insanity. Master origami artist Eric Joisel talked in an art film I once watched about how mastering origami takes a bit of insanity and, "well, I'm a french man, so I'm naturally a bit crazy.' Crazy like a fox! Nitch, always on the quest to turn everything into beer, fully supports mental illness, as long as it is channeled into making happy beery things for her hungry art loving ming.

Hopefully we'll be seeing more beer origami from our friend OriirO, as I'd love to see an origami hop or creatures from other breweries. A dogfish head brought to life? Or a New Belgium bicycle?

Not only is beer origami good for table art and creative expression but origami could come in real handy:

Once again, Nitch bringing you the culture, art and oddities of the ever expanding culture of beer.
