Every now and then, you may find yourself ina situation when you just don’t have money for beer ( especially if you are a student). Your cash mysteriously evaporated from your wallet and you lost a bet, want to celebrate a great success or it’s somebody’s birthday- the point is, you really need to buy a beer.  That’s where Superchiuk… erm, pardon me, comes to the rescue!

Give Me A Beer!

The project Give a Beer was started in 2008 by a Romanian developer Costin Moise. By the end of 2012, the old domain had expired, but 4 years late the website was resurrected under the spanking new .

The donated beer money will go directly to your PayPal account. If by any chance you want to buy more beer, don’t worry, there is no limit to how much you can buy- except the limit to the generosity of your friends.

Pint/Six-Pack/Keg, You Name It

Great thing about it is that you are not location bound. This way you and your friends can buy each other a beer across the globe. Although this site is called ”give a beer”, who says that you are only limited to beer? Perhaps you are not able to attend a bachelor/bachelorette party, but you want to take a part in it. This way you can buy everyone a round of drinks, and earn some serious bwornie points.

So what are you waiting for? Go to, and buy your (long lost) friend a beer. Because sometimes, there is no better way to reconnect then with a cold, dewy mug of beer. Cheers!
