Every once in a while, when I’m feeling dreamy and materialistic, I go to this Craigerator site. I’d give you a link, but apparently these days, the site “may harm your computer.” Basically, they do custom fridges, with sweet, pimped out paint jobs.
Apparently young Jake has seen me drooling over these photos, like the el fridge flambe, pictured right. Better than their paint jobs are the early sketches by Jake that occasionally litter the floor of our home (pictured left).
He’s destined for the Geekness, I fear. Not that that’s a bad thing. But seriously, what kind of kid sits around drawing refrigerators in his spare time? The kind that makes his own root beer, cream soda and ginger ale, I suppose.
I got to thinking, what happens when kids like this grow up? There are a few options, really. They either buy a cool fridge or settle for a plain one. Or, they kick some serious ass in their latter day beer-related creativity.

As Jack Black would say, “You’re not hard core, unless you live hard core.” These are some hard core jockey boxes, my friends. Freaking cool. My kegerator in the basement with the magnetic poetry splattered about just feels lame right now.
Fortunately, I’ve got my own little beer creativity plan, and I don’t just mean my next beer. I’m pimping my John, rather than fooling around with silly refrigerators. Just you wait, we will have a seriously beery (and yes, hard core) bathroom in the not so distant future at the brewvana household. Will there be taps?…
Yes, yes, it’s good to be a kid, no matter what age you are.
