Would You Drink Guy Ritchie's Beer?

Guy Ritchie loves a pint, and he's hoping Americans will love his.

The director is planning to open a traditional country-style pub in New York and Los Angeles after the success of The Punch Bowl, a pub he co-owns and regularly frequents in London.

According to reports, Ritchie is also looking into launching his own beer brand and has registered possible names including, "Bitta Ritchie" and "Punch Bowl Ales."

"It's in the early stages of development, he's looking at premises now," a source tells PEOPLE who adds: "Guy is really excited and he's definitely planning some fun ideas with the drinks."

The 41-year-old film-maker bought the quaint British pub while married to Madonna and, despite its low-key appearance, attracts a star-studded crowd such as Sting, Justin Timberlake and Jude Law.
