For the less electronically inclined, how about X-Wing Beer?

Bonnie reports on last weekend’s Maker Faire – lots of Star Wars and Indiana Jones – over at the starwars.com blog. Above, Adam Savage’s (Mythbusters) replica Grail diary. (Click on the photo for more pics.)
A message from the Mighty Mary Franklin:
I am writing my Bantha Tracks editorial to go with a “Craft” theme, and have decided to write about great Star Wars craft ideas gone all to hell. I know we have some great stories in Club Jade alone! PG and Yav’s “Twin Suns of Corellia” costume, for example, or Jar Jar the F*&*^#g Pinata.
Please send me a brief story and pictures of your Star Wars crafts gone wrong to email@example.com
To meet my deadline for Insider magazine, please send by tomorrow (Tuesday) night. However, if I get a lot of good stories like this I will do a special feature in Bantha Tracks Online, too! Thanks! Jessa.
