Full Length Sierra Nevada Beer Camp Entry

So I decided to enter the Sierra Nevada Beer Camp contest this year. Since I've been a drummer for 20-some years, I thought it might be cool to outfit my drum kit with various pieces of brew gear and see what sorts of sounds I could pull out of them.

So, after making my masterpiece, I got around to reading the rules - and fortunately read that the video had to be under 2 minutes long - doh! Mine was close to 5 minutes! So I had some editing to do, which didn't turn out too bad - you can see the cut version on the Beer Camp site here.

But just in case you want more - here's the raw, uncut version feature the full jam - cheers!

  1. Wow, that was pretty bad-ass! On a side note, I don't know why everybody I meet turns out to be a drummer, but I think it's God's way of teasing me... I still can't even do a drum roll!

  2. Anybody know of another camp this year??

  3. Weren't the winner's to have been announced already?

  4. I just got an email this afternoon - no beer camp for me :(

    I guess they got so many entries that it's taking longer than usual to select the finalists. Good luck to all still hanging in there!

  5. Damn. I'm late to the party, but after watching a handful of the entries... I think they missed the boat. Love the jam. Thanks for making me smile!
