Overexcited man spotted washing himself with pint as pubs reopen

One man was spotted celebrating the return of beer gardens in an altogether exuberant manner, as he was seen on video washing his face with one pint of beer and pouring another over his head. 

Many of us experienced that familiar warm glow – despite the unseasonable chill – of returning to our favourite pub for a well-earned pint over the last week.

It’s been a long time coming, and a celebratory mood was evident across the country as England returned to the streets to shop, eat and drink.

One man, however, really has captured the imaginations of pub-goers everywhere with his wild and exuberant celebration of being back in a beer garden.

Charlie Richards, 45, has shot to viral fame after footage of his ecstatic reaction to enjoying a pint or two was shared across social media.

Richards can be seen taking a sip of a cold pint before splashing his face with the beer and scrubbing his cheeks. He then proceeds to pour a second beer over his head in a full-on rainforest shower gush.

Can you relate to Richards’ thrill at being back in a pub beer garden? Let us know in the comments, and enjoy the gradual return of hospitality!

Meanwhile, people were left baffled by one punter’s choice of drink as beer gardens first reopened. You can read more on that story here.
