Deep within the folds of the digital space, the Solana ecosystem continues its flirtation with the physical world. This time around, leveraging the fundamental law that anything can be improved with beer.
With this purest of all worldly concepts in mind, decentralized alcohol producer, barrelDAO has taken to the fermentation tanks with gusto. As a result, brewing up its very own celebration of the finest collectibles within the Solana-based infrastructure. The eventual crowning achievement arriving as a bewildering mix of soft drink and beer for the slightly saccharine sounding, “Solana Summer Lemonade Shandy”.
Each beverage comes resplendent with a specially commissioned design by master of the digital easel, Mark Lauthier. It takes its inspiration from over 40 different Solana-based NFT PFP collections, including DeGods, OKAY Bears, Degenerate Apes, Cets on Creck and much more. Of the images used, barrelDAO owns 20 of the featured collectibles, while the remaining 23 were subject to licensing agreements with their owners.

All in all, beer fans had a chance to claim one of 333 redeemable NFTs via the Magic Eden platform, each representing a 16 can case of refreshments and retailing for just 1.35 SOL ($45) apiece. Unfortunately for latecomers however, every single pack in the collection sold out almost immediately.
