Lewis Capaldi served Guinness’ ‘Mega Pint’ to Belfast boozer – Up News Info
Lewis Capaldi has been challenged to drink a ‘mega pint’ of Guinness in a Belfast pub.
The Scottish superstar paid a visit to Town Square, a 300-seat bar on Botanic Avenue in Northern Ireland’s capital, on Sunday (26.06.22) after performing at Ormeau Park for Belsonic 2022.
And he got a shock when he ordered a standard pint of the Irish drink, only to be served the ‘Mega Pint’, the name coined by a lawyer in Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s libel suit while commenting on the large glass of wine from the first.
The boozer captioned a clip of Lewis receiving the drink on his Facebook page: “When Lewis Capaldi orders a regular but gets a mega pint instead.”
The 25-year-old ‘Someone You Loved’ hitmaker looked stunned as he was placed on the table in front of him, before taking a huge sip of dry stout.
He said, “Wow, thank you.”
The ‘Mega Pint’ is 3.5 pints and costs just under £20.
A Town Square spokesperson told The Sun: “Yes, the Mega Pint is on the secret menu (you have to know what to ask for).
“It’s exactly 3.5 pints and costs £19.95.
“Lewis tried hard but some of the guys in the band had to give him a hand to finish him off.”
Meanwhile, the BRIT Award winner’s close pal, pop star Calum Scott, has revealed Lewis has struggled with his second album following the record success of his debut studio album, ‘Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent’.
He told the Daily Star newspaper’s Wired column: “I know Lewis has worked very hard, bless him.
“To accelerate to the peak he’s reached in such a short time, especially with ‘Someone You Loved’, I feel for him because I know firsthand what overnight success looks like and it’s daunting.
“He struggled with stage anxiety and I know on this album he just tried to find the music that resonated with him.
“As an artist who has a great song, you worry a bit about living in its shadow.
“So he’s been on this journey and he’s taking his time, really enjoying breaking the songs.”
However, Lewis recently told the Isle of Wight festival crowd that the follow-up was now done and dusted off.
