Had a great time playing American country, folk, Americana, and classic rock last night at the pub with my buddy Matt from Northern Ireland.

If anyone needs two bearded dudes in hats belting out songs from country to pop to traditional to Irish tunes, we are for hire! We work for open beer tabs and a burger apparently lol

Haha love the video! 
A group of people were filmed tasting a selection of Craft beers for the first time and the varied reactions were hilarious. The advert was produced by online German beer shop Bier-Deluxe.

Having a typical Swedish Midsommar up on the Dalarna mountains with my wife's family. Obviously, in this typically Swedish rainy holiday we should taste the local beer here from Mora Bryggeri and The Beer Factory from nearby Leksand!
