Are their long term effects to beer??

Post by SuzySparkles on Sun Sep 25, 2011 2:11 pm

Weird question eh? Well, I was at a gig yesterday and this idiot spilled a whole cup of beer all over my beloved split cakes.... They were all full of beer. The company has said that they will replace them if their are any problems...

As of right now they seem okay... but what do you think about the long term? Could the yeast pose a problem? I just would like to contact them ri9ght away about replacements if someone would think that would be an issue that could arise in the future, rather than calling them a few months down the road...

So.. your thoughts?

I would consider it a huge problem personally - to be sure, I'd contact the manufacturer, but I'd get them to replace if they are willing - avoid the potential for problems.

I would have the company replace them..you don't know what will happen to the paints...and the smell alone..and making the paints even sticky;;
if they are willing suzy let them replace them...I know you make alot of your own..and that is alot of work...just my 2 cents..

I would also ask for replacements. You don't know the long term effects and that can pose a problem, and I am with barb on the smell.

I would research or call a company about it before replacment. I don't think there should be any problem. and I am sure it was an accident. but I would still call someone and ask to make sure....

Do they smell like beer?
I'm interested to know.
would have the company replace them for you and keep the other ones to just use on myself or at home.
Oh hang on - how many did you lose?

I'm willing to bet the MFG will tell you that they recommend you not use their product with ANYTHING but water spilled on it. They will probably take the road of not guaranteeing their product once anything else has been introduced. Yeast is in every beer...and it's fungus...I would let them replace it.

I think you'd be okay if you spray them with white vinegar (which is cheap, kills mold & is a natural disinfectant & air dry.

wrong kind of alcohol! LOL! Look at it this way...would you dring that beer after the man drank from it? I sure wouldn't! So, I would say just for that alone, along with the unknown, if someone offered to replace, I would take them up on it. You can always use the beer soaked ones on your practice head!

Nothing worse than babysitting an adult, and the adult you babysit usually doesn't care what they do, like spill beer all over 30 precious splits.

Ouch! That makes me feel ill just thinking about it. If you can get replacements at no cost to you, why wouldn't you take them up on the offer? New paints plus peace of mind seems like a good deal to me.

They will probably be ok, as the beer wouldn't have had that much of a chance to seep into the paint. Give them a wipe down and let them air dry in the sun for a little bit. I think yeast likes dark, moist places best to thrive so you will probably kill most of it by doing this. I hope the guy at least apologised to you. I would not have been happy. Mad

My vote is for having the company replace them. Especially, since they are offering. Beer is nasty and stinky, who knows how many of his nasty saliva germs were in there. I actually know of people that will have a chaw of tobacco in and be drinking at the same time! I'm sure they have some backwash in there. Ugggg! I bet you were mortified when it happened. affraid

I vote to have them replaced. Since we don't paint with beer, we can't say definitively what could or couldn't happen, but many of us DO know that beer is full of substances most mothers would rather you not paint their children with.

Send them a bill for all of the paints you would need to purchase to replace those splits and let it be a lesson to them about how they manage events where they serve alcohol. It will also teach them how to treat you and go a long way towards improving their perception of pro facepainters. I think if most of the ninnies knew how much our kits cost they'd rethink the way they approach us! Or not.

I asked for them to replace in an email and they replied:

Hi Suzy,



I got your e-mail and gave it to our controller. Our offer still stands to replace your damaged paint. Please let us know how much it is. Pam also has offered to put the replacements on the company credit card if it would prove difficult for you to fork out that much money from your own pocket and wait to be reimbursed from us.

Please let us know how you’d like to handle it. Again, we loved your work and do apologize for the spilt beer.



We are looking forward to seeing the pictures of the kids you painted!


YAY!! Great outcome Smile

I would go for it! What a great client! (And they get it as a write-off, I'm sure.) I like the idea of having practice paint!
