Man V. Beer Challenge 1

Yep, I'm actually going to go ahead with this and I'm starting off on Saturday March 31st at Craft Beer Company in Leather Lane and if you fancy a laff, by all means join me for a few!

I will be attempting to drink a half off of every tap in their not inconsiderable range.

This might sound easy but when you consider that Craft has 21 keg pumps and 16 cask pumps I could end up getting er...wrecked!

The challenge is doing this within opening hours and with 37 taps, i'll need to be doing 3.36 halves an hour, doesn't sound like much, does it?

We shall see!

Then of course I have to get home, which may be slightly more of a challenge!

Chin Chin as The Cad would say!

Haha, 18.5 pints of craft ale... Your liver's not going to like it, but your taste buds will.

Good luck!

Steve Lamond said...

18 pints with some >10% ABV? what's the point, you'll lose your tastebuds after about 6

On a blokeish level I have to smile, wink and say good luck to you.

On a business level, you are a fool. As a pub landlord that wishes to stay in business, your business is "responsible alcohol retailing", and that kind of impacts on your personal behaviour.

because I can....or not!

Cookie, I'm not a pub landlord anymore.

I think my planned crawl route that day needs a slight diversion to see how you're getting on.

I take it an ambulance and replacement liver have been prebooked...

Glyn, I can say hand on heart that's the dumbest idea I've ever heard of.

Eating a 72oz steak is a feat of endurance. Drinking 18 pints knowingly means fucking yourself up.

thanks simon!

I suspect that the bar staff will refuse to serve you that amount of alcohol. They are a lovely but sensible bunch of staff. :)

Tempted to wander down and see the attempt though.

Whadya get sacked for, being an alko?

I've booked you into the Olly Reed memorial stomach pumping suite at the UCL hospital, round the corner from Craft. Does 11:45pm on March 31st suit you?

I think everyone is missing the really important issue here....

What end of the bar are you starting at?

Professor Pie-Tin said...

Good luck old cock.
I'd jump on a plane and come and join you.
But by then I'll have jumped on a plane to drink shit lager in Sri Lanka watching the cricket.
Fuck the begrudgers.

Rabidbarfly said...

Cheers PPT, enjoy the cricket! come visit The Rake soon too!

I would go for the will of man to fight beer until the end. Man can fight many bottles of beer, but a hundred beer bottles can only beat one man.

I like this idea. Some Aussie blokes have set the bar rather high:
