This weekend marks the release of Northmen – A Viking Saga starring Tom Hopper (Knights of Badassdom), Ed Skrein (Game of Thrones), Leo Gregory (Stoned), Ken Duken (Inglorious Basterds) and none other than the lead singer of Swedish metal band Amon Amarth, the great Johan Hegg. This is a movie you definitely want to watch with a group of your bravest and boldest brothers and sisters. The journey is the reward and that’s why we are here today to drink and make merry.

Northmen is an action-filled entertaining ride as we see a band of Vikings travel enemy territory and get into battle after battle. Blood is shed and lives are lost as our heroes fight their way back to the sea to return to the North. Our group never gets the chance to celebrate their victories in the film, so why not cheer them on as we drink together. Grab yer mugs and drinking horns. Here we go.
