One of the things I really enjoy doing with my guy friends is having “open shop night” at Ultimate Reloader. It’s great to do some gunsmithing or other machining, and then crack a cold one with the guys, sit back, and just enjoy the machinery/conversation. Recently, I had the good fortune of inheriting a “dorm fridge” from a friend’s friend. What to do with this dorm fridge? How about add it to the shop as a beer fridge?
Here we have a picture of my 1955 built all American Logan model 1922 11″ x 36″ metal lathe. A great machine! You can see the custom tooling center I fabricated, and some nice Kennedy precision tool storage. This machining center now features the refreshment zone as well. Once the machining is done, it’s a good time to have a brew.
This refreshment unit is currently stocked with part of the “Pyramid Variety Pack” from Costco. To tell you the truth, not all of these are my favorite. I’m not too much into fruity beer, so I think I’m going to have to spice things up and add some variety. Some “Pabst Blue Ribbon” would be good for those cheaper/lighter moods, and perhaps some porter would be good given the winter season.
Speaking of Pabst Blue Ribbon, do you know they sell this stuff in China? Here’s a picture of me with a case of PBR in Beijing back in 2008:
I’m just wondering if they watch NASCAR in China while they toss back these American beauties… ? One has to wonder.
What do you guys think? What does this fridge need?
