Merchandise Monday

This week’s Merchandise Monday is another Middle-Earth item, but I promise it’s not what you expect!

It’s Lord of the Rings and Hobbit-themed beer (bottles. They’re empty.)!

The story behind this beer is that, during filming, they didn’t want the actors to drink too much, but they didn’t want to keep them from drinking altogether. So they had this beer made, which only has like 1%o alcohol.

We bought these in New Zealand, in Queenstown. There was a little shop there that had all kinds of weird Middle-Earth merchandise, including these two kinds of beer. This one was for the Hobbit.

And this one for the Lord of the Rings. Unfortunately, it fell from my shelf and broke, which still pisses me off even though it’s been months… Anyway, I tried to fix it as best as I could, but it shattered in many very small pieces, which seriously sucks.

Oh and the beer? It tasted awful. Seriously, that stuff was disgusting. I have no idea how they survived with that on set.
