Astonishing moment fan uses head to carry obscene amount of beer

Football. Beer. Perhaps never before in human history have two separate entities been so intertwined and so perfectly matched. The pair have become almost synonymous with each other, and many fans will go to great lengths to ensure they are able to have a pint or two at the footie.

Perhaps none more so than this fan, however.

A true hero

The sun is shining, the game is approaching kick-off, there's a party-like atmosphere in the stands, and all that is missing is some beer. Or at least that was the case before this fan astonishingly re-entered the stands carrying not one, not two, not even five jugs of beer for that matter, but an astonishing 10 full jugs of beer using nothing but his head.

If that wasn't outrageous enough, the man then has the audacity and confidence to not just pose for videos and photos, but also to dance and sing along to chants and songs within the stadium.

It was truly an incredible feat that weirdly conjures up mixed emotions of pride, fused ever so slightly with extreme jealousy.

The love affair between football and beer

The pair have not always had the easiest relationship, and when things go too far, the combination of football and beer can sometimes lead to ugly scenes. Violence is a common consequence, and it was alcohol that largely fueled the hooliganism culture that engulfed the sport in years gone by.

But, when consumed in a responsible manner, there is no denying that beer can certainly have a positive effect. In fact, here in the United Kingdom, breweries actually had a big part to play in the initial funding of the sport. Clubs such as Liverpool and Aston Villa both received substantial financial backing from local breweries in the 1890s and early 1900s.

Interestingly, when Anfield was nothing more than just a patch of land, it was reportedly owned by multiple brewers consecutively. It is clear then that the relationship between beer, football and its fans was destined to bloom since the dawn of the sport.
