The five Denmark-based members of The Bottle Boys recently performed a cover of the song “I Just Can’t Wait To Be King,” from the 1994 animated Disney film The Lion King, using beer bottles as instruments.
Besides the fact that “Just Can’t Wait to Be King” is one of our favourite Disney songs, we chose it because we’ve received some requests from you to play a song from The Lion King AND because we found it to be extremely well-suited for a bottlification! :) It has a cool swingy feel to it with a great, almost walking bass line, which rendered percussion instruments unnecessary! One of the side effects of this was, that none of us had to use headracks with fewer bottles in them, so we could keep the nice and full harmonies of the original’s vocal arrangement!
The original song for comparison:
Ermagerdness is an American India Pale Ale by Short’s Brewing Company in Northern Michigan that derives its name from the “Ermahgerd” or “Gersberms” meme. The logo for the beer even includes a man with a similar hairstyle and facial expression as the young woman in the original photo.
Ermagerdness is a light bodied golden colored American India Pale Ale with zesty tangerine and pineapple aromatics. A simplified malt bill, along with some signature American hops, allows for an awesome burst of tropical fruit flavors up front. It then shifts toward an interesting herbal tasting bitterness, which builds and lingers on the back of the palate.

Necto Cooler is a sour wheat beer created by the Ardmore, Pennsylvania-based Tired Hands Brewing Company, who is known for creating all sorts of experimental brews, that is inspired by Hi-C’s orange flavored Ecto Cooler drink. The classic Ecto-Cooler box featured The Real Ghostbusters character Slimer, who is the mascot that Tired Hands Brewing Company also chose to promote their beer.
The limited edition craft beer was released and sold out in a matter of days at their Brew Cafe. Necto Cooler’s flavor consisted of a “tart summer bier brewed with wheat. Hopped gently with Simcoe and Citra. Soured in the kettle then conditioned on top of nectarine purée” at 4.5% alcohol.
