Free beer for usability

Interesting idea: Café testing

The basic idea behind café testing is to situate yourself at a café, put up a sign to attract participants, and test the people that come to you. Because cafes appeal to a wide variety of individuals, and people at a café often have time to spare, café testing can be a great way to perform a quick litmus test in the marketplace.

Sounds like work for usability testers with a taste for beer ;-)

I can read Swedish pretty well too…)
