This early film from George Allen Smith certainly isn't anything ground-breaking but fans of these early movies should enjoy it. We basically see, as the title suggests, an old man pouring a glass of beer and drinking it while making funny faces. Yes, that's the only thing that happens in this thirty second film so as you can tell there's nothing cinema changing here but it's mildly entertaining. I thought the old man was somewhat funny with his gestures. I also thought it was fascinating getting to see what a glass of beer looked like in 1898 and it seems you got much more for your value back them as compared to today.
