Yuser Covers Western Fair Beer and BBQ Show

Western Fair’s London Beer and BBQ Show this past weekend was a great event full of delicious food, cold beer, and awesome vibes. Yuser team joined the event last minute but we had great fun providing some exceptional pinkness to the event and making fools of ourselves - which is something that we excel at.

We like to make sure that wherever we go things go down with a bang. If you’re not giving people something to talk about, then what are you even doing? For us specifically, being a social media app making sure that people have fun and want to share it with friends is really important.

Just ask those who attended Malta Blockchain Summit in 2018. I’m just glad that most people were too entertained by what was going down to tweet it so the truth doesn’t have to stare me in the face every time I pick up my phone.

But nostalgia aside, Yuser crew had a great time interviewing local vendors, interacting with customers and rocking some larger than life balloon boobs (you just had to be there!).

We will be releasing some more of our interviews soon, so stay tuned if you want to have a better idea about what goes on in the Forest City craft beer circuits. There are quite a few micro brewers that are making a big fizzy splash these days with new ideas and interesting flavours.

Founder’s Original bottled cocktails were a hit during the show with many waiting in line to sneak a taste of their Old Fashioned, Burbon Sour, Rye & Thai, and Tequila Paloma. Watch the interview below!

Mad Man Just Starts Laughing

20190516_110639.jpg

Sometimes you have no choice but to laugh. It was one of those days, although not at first.

Colton saw a dead pigeon on his way to work. He didn’t think much of it. After all, in the universe where black holes are a real thing and the theoretical possibility of time travel exists, dead pigeons are not so surprising.

When he entered the Roundhouse the office was quiet. He was the first one in at 7 am. The gurgling of the coffee maker in the corner was the only discernible sound as he checked Bitcoin performance and sold the last remaining shitcoins in his portfolio.

What a drag.

As he got up to grab more coffee, he caught a movement in the corner of his eye. Colton turned his head abruptly to the right. There was nothing there. Just one of the wood poles, as thick as a tree, and as solid as ever, except - as he watched - for a little ripple. The wood seemed to twirl and stretch.

Great, I couldn’t sleep again and now I’m getting a migraine.

The wood split and opened in front of him. Colton walked right up to it.

It must be an aura.

He scolded himself for taking what he saw seriously for even a second. He waved his hand right through the hole like a mad man.

WTF.

A pigeon flew out past his face. He laughed hysterically.
