This picture of Beyoncé drinking GUINNESS before Croker is LIFE

Queen Bey might have wanted Champagne on hand at Croker last night, but it seems what the megastar really needed to kick off the Irish leg of her Formation world tour was a pint of the black stuff.

A new photo has appeared online of Beyoncé enjoying a pint of Guinness shortly before her Dublin performance last night.

Wearing the same white dress she’d worn to watch Serena Williams win her 22nd Grand Slam title hours before, the Sorry singer posed with a pint while showing the camera her foamy Guinness tash.


Naturally the image has everyone pretty excited on Twitter with one user writing: “Beyoncé drinking Guinness is pure joy.”

While another said: “Beyoncé drinking Guinness backstage is #WeekendGoals.”

75,000 fans were treated to a major performance by the star last night as she paid tribute to Prince, revealed behind-the-scenes footage of her family life with Jay Z and Blue Ivy and even appeared to walk on water. 

Since her pre-show fuel was a pint of Ireland's most iconic beverage, we're not surprised Sasha Fierce totally smashed it.
