Former Australian PM Bob Hawke held the world record for sculling a yard glass at Oxford uni for many years.

An alcoholic for much of his early life he still had a sharp mind right up to the end.

I did a few pub crawls in the 1980's in Richmond,Melb'ne when there was a pub on every corner.

Dangerous business. Don't recommend it ...LOL.

When I was 18/19 years old in the 1960s we used to go for a pub crawl in the local village which has 13 pubs. Granted we took the evening to do it and felt as sick as a dog the next day but I could do it back then, but certainly not nowadays.

 

A good greasy fryup breakfast always sorted out the men from the boys.

A few seconds after holding his glass up in triumph, the man lost consciousness and fell forwards onto the floor where he died in front of his horrified co-workers and mates.

"Nobody knows the actual cause of death yet and we didn't know if he had any allergies or medical conditions."

 

 

Alcohol doesn't affect you a few seconds after you have a drink. It seems unlikely that the jug of beer was in itself the cause of death.

 

Previously imbibed spirits, drugs or an unrelated cause could all account for it. Guy might have just had a heart attack.

Bring to mind WC Fields film where his hen pecking wife says

"You'll probably drown in a vat of whiskey" and he replies

"Death, where is thy sting?"

Spot on ! I was just thinking , in Dorking where I lived 'til married I took my son in law round the town for his stag night . 11 pubs down west street then the high street back along south street.  Coming out the last pub The Bull's Head I apparently appologised to the lamp post when I walked in to it.  McDonalds next day for brekky sorted me out. Today a jug of Chang and I am anybodies .

Yup, Hofbräu tent. Been there four times back in the turn of the millennia. Australians were the hardest war drinkers.

What is the point of drinking competitions?  What do you win?  A pickled liver?

I guess he died doing what he loved... which is more than most of us will ever achieve.  RIP young Som Chai.  Your deeds will live forever in drink and song.

Only 13 pubs? When I was at Nottingham University it was the Campus 14 with a pint to be had in each.
