About Open Bottle Society a.k.a THE OBS

For our MEDIA kits – click here

 How it started: The founder of OBS wanted to create a “Midnight Society” of beer drinkers who dressed up and gathered to share a bottle or can of their choice. In October 2014, the founder of OBS shared a beer with a friend. This friend spewed the beer, then two had a heated debate over the beers qualities. Culminating in a brilliant idea. Why not film all reactions, discussions, and beer related antics? That my friends is how The Open Bottle Society began.

What makes us different from other beer sharing groups: We are real people, who have one important thing in common; We love beer.  What makes us different?  We are serious about beer, but we don’t take ourselves too seriously.  We share, learn and laugh…a lot.

Why join us: OBS is a group with diverse palates and everyone is always welcome; it doesn’t matter if your favorite is Bud Light or Samuel Adams Utopias, OBS wants to share it with you!

BIO: Sean Cashman AKA Shane Cashmere, born and raised in Las Vegas, is Open Bottle Talk’s very own sound engineer and podcast producer. Starting off as a recording and mixing engineer for his own music, he then began providing service to other local rappers in his home studio, servicing the east side of Las Vegas. Now Sean joins Key and Kash on OBS’s beer-reviewing podcast titled “Open Bottle Talk.” Although he doesn’t drink it on his own time, he does drink beer on the show and tries his best to identify the various tastes and aromas of the craft beers (mostly to the amusement of Key, as Sean tends to make priceless facial expressions). His laid-back and frankly apathetic attitude makes for quite the hilarious duo between himself and Key, with Sean often dragging Key far off topic for his own pleasure. So far Sean is the only member of the team that attempted to roll hops into a blunt because he wanted to “smoke some beer…”
