The Beer Mile
I thought I posted something about The Beer Mile a while back, but I can't remember when (good thing I started tagging posts). So, being that I can't find it, this "first Tuesday of the month's installment" will be dedicated to the topic. First off, yes... The Beer Mile is actually a contested race with documented rules and records and everything (there's apparently a 5-min barrier for this rendition of 5280ft)! The rules differ by "region"- the US favors 12oz cans and issues a penalty for puking, whereas they drink 20oz out of a pint glass in UK, Australia, and New Zealand (and no penalty is issued for "chundering"). In German-speaking countries, they prefer Kastenlauf to The Beer Mile. For this sport, a team of two must carry and consume a crate of beer over 10-kilometers.
