Comments Jonne,

“Whilst being in the studio, we thought what better way to promote our own beer than by making a newer version of ‘Beer Beer’! As beer is international, we decided to ask friends of ours to sing in their own language and we also had the idea of trying to make as many language versions as possible. Now we can present you with the first 14 and we are extremely happy and grateful for these versions and we hope you enjoy them as much as we do.”
