Beck's Brewery Made the First Playable Beer Bottle Ever
Rockers love beer. Let's just remember Metallica at their early years. But these two things - music and beer - might be even closer to each other. And there's no way you can imagine it.

Beck's Brewery presented the playable beer bottle, Ultimate Classic Rock reports. Watch the video below.

The company took a concept of Edison's playing cylinder, which was used for playing music with a phonograph before the vinyls were invented. Beck's engineers had to answer a number of tricky questions before they could get a decent sound out of the bottle - like what they'd use to cut the grooves and how they'd get around the way sound behaves when it's being transmitted through glass. They ended up with a terrific collector's item that brings beer and music together the way nature always intended.

Admittedly, the world's first playable beer bottle has few practical applications at the moment (especially since there's no way they'll play on traditional turntables), but it's still pretty cool.

Do you think we'll see anybody releasing their brand new single as the Beck's bottle of beer?
