I have always enjoyed films starring Jean Reno. He is a great actor. So was pleasantly surprised to see a beer advert with him in it, but this was no ordinary advert. Had it been I would have skipped past it in a heart beat. I gave it a minute and ended up watching the whole thing. Laia Costa is not too shabby either. The location is fantastic. Estrella Damn did well with this light-hearted short movie/advert.
For the past 8 months I have been religiously recording every beer that I drink. I am doing this with an app called Untappd and it has changed the way I drink beer. The app is super intuitive and easy to use.
Whether I’m in a pub, restaurant or at home cracking open a can or bottle of beer, the first thing I do is scan the bar code (if possible) or do a search for the beer name. Once the beer has been found in the database, I check it in. If I am at a pub or restaurant I insert the location (useful for others).
Next up I take a photo of the glass of beer, bottle or can and attach it to the check-in. One doesn’t have to take a photo (but a photo is worth a thousands words).
I joined Beer52.com today, thought I would give them a try because I am beer lover and what better way to try out new craft beer from around Britain and the rest of the work than having an independent company send me their best beer picks.
This is hopefully going to work nicely with the Untappd beer app. I’m on a mission to drink as many unique beers around the world and that is coming on nicely given there seems to be unlimited sources of craft beer these days. Everyone is getting in on the action.

I was over at Forgetfoo.com and Guinnessping.net and couldn’t help but notice the beautiful Octoberfest beer girls and festival photos they had on their sites. Yes folks its that time of the year again. Damn man! I need to go to the Octoberfest in Munich. (Next year).
There is nothing more satisfying for a man seeing beautiful ladies dressed in tradional dirndl dresses and drinking big jugs of beer…. well actually drinking the beer as well would do it for me. Anyway, thanks to Foo for giving me the idea of putting some photos on my site. I didn’t have to search long as I found some photos on The Boston Globe website.
The photo above was taken by OLIVER LANG/AFP/Getty Images. The man should be given a medal for this photo. It’s truly beautiful.
I wonder how many of these lovely ladies were worried about gravity? The photo was taken by Miguel Villagran/Getty Images.
Quite a stunning photograph of a gorgeous waitress carrying 6 large jugs of beer. The Photo was taken by REUTERS/Fabrizio Bensch.
I went out last night with a few friends to this cool pub called “The Ventry” in Cannon Street and in a short period of time managed to drink five different beers, a Sambuca and a whiskey. I don’t even like Sambuca or Whiskey so I blame my friends for forcing it down my throat (lol).
Why do we do such stupid things to ourselves? I always ponder this thought too late. Don’t get me wrong, the evening was brilliant and it was really good to see everyone, but yesterday I felt really crap all day. Thinking about it now, I don’t want to have a repeat performance in a hurry. Perhaps I am getting old, although it’s not that because next week I will do the same again even though I know it’s stupid. I guess it’s cool to be stupid once a week. Who needs all those brain cells anyway!
Here is quite a funny advert, which was banned for some reason.
I might just try some of this beer the next time I see it in the pub. It’s got to taste awesome!
If not, I’ll just think of this photo.
