depends on what type of beer. with a lighter beer, probably 10.

As the Emperor Julian once remarked of beer, "You call that wine? I call it mush!" Unfortunately, beer is sometimes the only drink conveniently near at hand. Therefore, the correct answer is: the fewest necessary under the circumstances.

the circumstances require as many as possible. but how few is that?

10 sir i think is braggadocio. use pbr or similar

I am happy to report that necessity has not compelled me to test my limits in that direction for so long that I have forgotten the number I was able to encompass. I am sure the number is pitiably low in my case.

In the same way as competitive eaters, who must constantly practice their art in order to accomplish their feats of gorging, so must a beer drinker who aspires to drink the most beers possible in the space of an hour stretch his talents through training and toil. I have no such aspirations and therefore am content to wallow among the common ruck.

I could probably do 6, but it would be a chore, and I would be hung over

how many can you drink in an hour without barfing? or with barf?

Karl Malone, Sunday, 8 February 2015 21:55 (four years ago) Permalink

i'm gonna say up to 6 without barfing.

Karl Malone, Sunday, 8 February 2015 21:55 (four years ago) Permalink

that sounds about right

also depends on the beer, as noted

sleeve, Sunday, 8 February 2015 21:58 (four years ago) Permalink

If you want to avoid barfing you should go with a non-carbonated beer probably.

my limits about 2

Anyone else attempt a "power hour" in college or was that just me and my degenerate friends? One shot of beer every minute for an entire hour. That's about 7.5 beers for a successful run, but I'd estimate I'd only manage around 6.

10 was probably an overstatement. if a power hour is 7.5 that's probably about what i could do. haven't tried to chug beer as fast as possible for several years.

Varies

i aint heard a no power hour, but
i have heard of this thing the century club where the challenge is to consume a shot of beer every minute for 100 minutes. everybody barfs at this club and nobody remembers much.

i'm going for 4 right now. 1st one took 6 1/2 minutes. i'm out around 10 min right now and just burping alot.

i did the power hour a few times in college ("in college!"). in a powerful feat of "college!" i also tried to popularize the double power half-hour. barfed every time

jdchurchill will you liveblog it? after every beer?

Karl Malone, Monday, 9 February 2015 06:12 (four years ago) Permalink

2nd one down about 18min into this hour. i think this just means i am going to freak out and have to buy more beer

skiirp!! skiirp!! (jdchurchill), Monday, 9 February 2015 06:12 (four years ago) Permalink

wait how will you work the beer buying time into your schedule?

sleeve, Monday, 9 February 2015 06:13 (four years ago) Permalink

also wtf i am surprised that it takes 45 seconds to walk to the kitchen, crush a can for recycling, grab another beer and get back to my computer. burp!

skiirp!! skiirp!! (jdchurchill), Monday, 9 February 2015 06:15 (four years ago) Permalink

beer will get purchased after this hour is over

skiirp!! skiirp!! (jdchurchill), Monday, 9 February 2015 06:16 (four years ago) Permalink

what is your timing system? are you just watching the clock or do you have an alarm?

Karl Malone, Monday, 9 February 2015 06:18 (four years ago) Permalink

i believe there may be motivational youtube videos that you can drink along to.

at the onset i started a stopwatch on my phone. yes i am watching it. i realized yesterday that it is a key step to watch the time go by. i think i might get 5 in during this hour, dudes. just put on master of reality for extra kicks!
dude karl wtf are you doing distracting me with not clocks? and i guess not ilx?

i'm trying to help but i'm having a triple whiskey third of an hour!

i think the idea is that there's a playlist that changes song every minute. but i'm distracted with all of this whiskey so i'm just c+p'ing power hour playlists like crazy, throw it at the wall see what sticks kind of approach

Karl Malone, Monday, 9 February 2015 06:24 (four years ago) Permalink

the most difficult part about the power hour is remembering to drink once it passes 40 minutes or so

>50 is different because you're in the final countdown

Karl Malone, Monday, 9 February 2015 06:25 (four years ago) Permalink

Running a beer mile, I can down 4 buds in just under 8 minutes.

Jeff, Monday, 9 February 2015 12:06 (four years ago) Permalink

I think you have to enforce a minimum ABV for this challenge imo

yo jeff would you plz describe the feels you have when doing a beer mile?

First two laps you really question your life decisions. Last two, glory.

doesn't the beer inside you slosh about thus giving you cramps and what not? i mean can u be more specific?

skiirp!! skiirp!! (jdchurchill), Tuesday, 10 February 2015 02:13 (four years ago) Permalink

sloshing is unpleasant, but less so after the alcohol kicks in

mookieproof, Tuesday, 10 February 2015 02:17 (four years ago) Permalink

with PBR or something similarly light I could def do like 10 or so in an hour back in the day like college and just after and keep goin, these days in my late 20s I have 6 sorta powerful beers in 3 hrs (all between 6 and 7.5 abv) and I'm bordering on schlammered, my irish ancestors gotta be v ashamed

well, in the harsh light of morning and a hangover that's quite mild compared to what I experienced on a regular basis 4 or 5 years ago, I'm quite glad that I don't drink at the suicidal pace I used to, bursts of ill-advised college nostalgia notwithstanding

slothroprhymes, Sunday, 15 February 2015 14:39 (four years ago) Permalink

now if the question is how much vodka can you down in one go I think we can start talking
