The Best Guests Come Bearing Gifts: Drink Beer Like A Squatter!

by Ailsa Forlenza · April 12, 2011

Here's a story wrapped in a brown paper bag. Inspired by the squatter scene of the nineties, Doss Blockos has created a "down and out" aesthetic to their new line of lagers. Each bottle comes wrapped in a cheap paper bag, normally used to disguise alcoholic contents from the police.

This style is supposed to reflect the creativity that emerged in New York squat fraternities, evoking a sub culture of art, music, and covert partying. The name, "Doss Blockos" refers to the Dos Blockos building in New York on East 9th St., which was a focal point for squatters and housed up to 60 people at one point. This six pack will be perfect for power-drinking on the go, or to be imbibed in dirty, packed areas that smell like an aerosol spray paint can.
