Soccer Fan Manages To Collect A Beer From Every Country In The World Cup This Year

Many of us would like to call ourselves beer fanatics.

But I’m just going to go ahead and say it right now, I’d happily bet my savings that this guy would beat any of us.

Let me introduce 35-year-old Gus Hully from Bidford-On-Avon, Warwickshire, who has been collecting beers from around the world since May.

And which exact countries, you might ask?

I’m talking about every country participating in the World Cup in Qatar, a whopping 32 in total.

and acc boy bible, Hully has even managed to snag non-alcoholic beers from countries where alcohol is banned, such as Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Iran.

And this isn’t the first time the music industry analyst has pulled off such a feat, as he did the exact same thing in 2018.

This year’s brands include Kronenbourg 1664 from France and Tyskie from Poland. He’s even managed to collect a few unknown beers, like Tunisian Celtia and Argentinian Quilmes.

Another wild brand he was able to source was La Gazelle, which had to be shipped from its country of origin, Senegal, in Africa by a Russian stranger from northern Italy.

Hully commented on the process:

“Some brands were particularly difficult to source. I know people in France, for example, who went to all the shops around the corner for me and couldn’t find some brands. Luckily I don’t have to order in large quantities, I don’t have the space for that in my apartment.

There are so many stores across the country that sell more unique brands of beer, so I try to source them individually this way. The original idea came to me about 10 years ago from a guy on an internet forum who was doing something similar.

I was sure I could do better, so I decided to make it a tradition. I drink it every time a team is eliminated or to celebrate their victory at the end.”

He also spoke about the wild shipping process:

“Sometimes I have to have them shipped and some beers couldn’t even be shipped to the UK because of Brexit rules so I had to have them shipped to my friend in Germany who then shipped them over.

I had to monitor this Senegalese beer “La Gazelle” on Untapped from June or July hoping someone would show up with it on holiday.

I was hoping I could message someone and see if they could get me one back.

I didn’t hear anything for two or three months, but then this Russian guy reported back while he was on vacation.

However, he lived in northern Italy so he managed to get me the Senegalese and Tunisian beers which he sent to my mate in Germany who then sent them to me along with the Costa Rican “Imperial” beer he had himself .

It’s not easy to accommodate them all, some require a bit of footwork.”

Needless to say, the guy will have plenty of exotic drinking to do once the World Cup rolls around.

How many of these did you have? Apart from the high life…
