What is this? An FPL beer club on a fantasy football site? Pull up a stool and grab a pint and see what this beer club is all about.
This past January, #FPLBeerClub took to Twitter, as @ChefDaleH tweeted an image of assorted beers that were on shortlisted to be drank. There was a rousing response from many fantasy managers around the world. #FPLBeerClub was born. Prior to that Phil Goldring aka FPL_Loon, tweeted the first use of the #FPLBeerClub hashtag.
The #FPLBeerClub is not exclusive, open to anyone and all. Those involved in the weekly threads all share one thing in common, aside from football. Beer. From generic to batch to home and craft, if you can pour it can be tapped or poured from a can, bottle or growler, we will indulge in it.
Beer hauls are a cornerstone to the #FPLBeerClub. Members show off their recent (daily or weekly) purchases, what they favor to drink over the weekend or just how well stocked their refrigerator is (#fridgeporn). For us it’s all about what you are drinking now. To support the #FPLBeerClub, the Untappd app has become a cornerstone for some, sharing images and reviews of what they are drinking.
I’ve taken the inclusion in the #FPLBeerClub a step further and started doing quick reviews of each new beer I drink. While not new to the craft scene, I am new to Untappd. If I don’t have a beer on the mobile app, I will put together a #30SecondBeerReview of what I am drinking. This video (like @ChefDaleH’s recipes) are a 30 second, no bullshit review of what I am drinking. Followed by the “Scooby Snack” rating system (based on a 1-5). This system is based off the fact I drink my beer from a Scooby Doo pint glass.
You can find the #FPLBeerClub on Twitter at @FPLBeerClub or just hashtag your tweet to get involved in the drinking and conversation.
