Okay, somebody took the idea of “beer goggles” to another dimension. Here’s a company, Urban Spectacles, that figured out a way to make actual “beer goggles,” that is prescription eyewear in which the frames are made from used, recycled beer bottles. They’ll even make them out of whatever beer bottles you want. They may not make the people in a bar look more attractive, but they are pretty cool looking all the same.
Here’s the description from the website:
Made by reusing empty beer bottles, these goggles are a playful take on eyewear. Pick out your favorite beer, or even make the selection based upon and interesting glass (think Delirium), then either drink it down or send it to me and I’ll take care of it, and the construction of Beer Goggles will begin. Then I will fit any prescription or tint of lenses into the frames and they will be ready to wear out to your local pub.
And beyond the beer goggles, the main website, Urban Spectacles, has some very unique, one-of-a-kind, frames, many hand-carved wood.
This one still has the label from Buffalo Bill’s Pumpkin Ale on it, and the pair below has the etched Stone Arrogant Bastard and Rogue’s Dead Guy on it.
One warning though: “beer goggles come with disclaimers as they are made of glass and rest near your eyes. While I have worn them out on the town and will be doing so fairly often, I am claiming Beer Goggles to be novelty items that should be worn with caution.”
This is pretty cool.
