10 Wacky Container Ideas to Bring to Farside Hamilton

January 19, 2022

Farside is a local bar located on James St North in Hamilton. In light of the new covid restrictions, they’re looking to clear their beer inventory! Rather than wasting the beer and pouring it down the drain, Farside has come up with a fun contest that encourages Hamiltonians to bring whatever container you have (seriously, whatever container you have! I saw a training potty on Farside’s story!) and they will fill it with beer for you. The weirder the container, the bigger the discount!

Their draught features Fairweather Beer (@fairweatherbeer), Grain and Grit Beer (@grainandgritbeer), West Avenue Cider (@westavenuecider), Left Field Brewery (@leftfieldbrewery), Anderson Craft Ales (@andersoncraftales), Merit Brewing (@meritbrewing) and Town Brewery (@townbrewery)

Cans are $5 to go, and Farside’s new hours are Thursday-Saturday 6 PM - 9 PM until the beer is all gone. 

Without further ado.. Here are some wacky container ideas (in no particular order)

  1. Hunter Boot: You saw a child boot on their story + post, why not get 10x more beer and bring in a Tall Hunter Boot?

  1. A Vase: This one seems tame. But we all know how many different vases there are in the world. Farside never specified a size restriction… so yes you could bring a small table vase, or you could bring your floor vase that has pampas in it.

  1. A Fishbowl or Tank: It’s not Fishbowl Friday yet but you could always pop your fish into a different (appropriately sized) container and borrow their bowl for a quick drink!

  1. A Garbage Can: We all have one. Maybe line it with a bag or give it a VERY good clean before using it to drink beer out of though.

  1. A Water Jug: Water jug, milk jug, whatever works. You’ll have a solid 5 gallons of beer in this baby though.

  1. A kiddie pool: Would an inflatable kiddie pool be better than a plastic kiddie pool? I feel like you could fold up the inflatable one and hold it like a paper bag, or maybe the plastic kiddie pool is more solid. Try this and let us know!

  1. A Toilet: You could fill the bowl AND the tank with beer!

  1. Children’s Wagon: It's like beer on wheels!

  1. Wheelbarrow: If you need something bigger than a wagon..

  1. Rice Cooker: Bonus if it has a latch and a handle!

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
