Quality beer labels from around the world (or any passable alcohol with quality labels)...
Time

Following on from a conversation in the What am I drinking [Closed] thread… that I’ve only just recalled!

A new thread for fine beer labels from around the world (or any passable alcohol with a quality or intriguing label on it).
 

The beer that started this off… 🍺

^ Ichnusa - a quality Italian beer (Sardinia, I think). Lovely chilled beer, with a creamy body to it.

 

Some weird label here; one that got George Lucas pissed…

‘Imperial Stout Trooper’:-

http://www.ctmuseumquest.com/?page_id=20855 - seems George sent them a cease and desist letter…

'A few years ago, the label was far more Storm Troopery. Somehow, George Lucas got wind of it and as George Lucas likes to do, he issued our best little brewery a cease and desist order. Seriously. It used to hang prominently at the brewery, but the last few times I was down there it had been moved.

So what did NEBCO do? The next time they released the IST, they threw some sunglasses on the Trooper. Brilliant. The next release featured a Groucho Marx nose and eyebrows. Genius. (Note the font is still quite Star Warsy.)

Ok, to the beer. I’ve actually had it several times – always in growlers from the brewery. Black as engine oil and full of malty goodness, the IST holds up to its reputation. This 2012 version is a bit different from the 2011 I remember. I can’t put my finger (or my liver) on it though… it seems like some of the secondary flavors are missing.’

'More Cameos We Want in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’ - from geek.com

^ I hadn’t realised they got Forest Whitaker in to play Saul Gerrera in it - nice one 😃

Would cool to Kyle Katarn feature in another game - as the article lists in their wish-list of cameos.

 

Seems there won’t be any lopping off limbs of the stormtroopers in the game…

The relevant project threads are far better places to discuss these issues - and will hopefully stop the boards becoming further clogged up with these type of additional threads.

In the future, if fellow members could kindly point each other to the relevant project that would be a big help - thank you.
 

The site doesn’t allow links to downloads on the site; and we encourage members to look through the site find the relevant thread to find any information required.

For info on 4K77… they’ll be in the ‘Star Wars Preservation’ section of the site.

Please take the time to read through the following - and also have a look around to get a feel for the place and how it all works here - thank you 😃
 

If you are new to the OriginalTrilogy•com then the following info may be of some assistance…

Firstly, the About and Help sections may be of interest to you regarding this site and what the OriginalTrilogy•com is about.

Secondly, the ’How do I do this?’ on the OriginalTrilogy.com - some info & answers to members’ queries thread should also hopefully be of some help as to many of the functions of the site, along with other related info as well.

Thirdly, the Announcements Section - including Site Rules & Guidelines, Fan Edit & Preservation Rules & FAQ, as well info for Signatures, Linking Policy for Downloads, and Plot Spoiler Policy (and much more) that may be of use too.

I’ll most likely buy it once it gets discounted. Looks fun, but not day-one full-price kind of fun.

Same here.

I like the look of it - an updated TFU/Jedi Outcast style game, though was hoping for something with a little more to it…

(Having said I was beginning to think we’d never see a new single-player Star Wars game again! So am quite happy there is one.)
 

Roll-on more gamplay videos of it - and the reviews when closer to launch.
