Corey Bellemore of Canada just set a new Beer Mile World Record of 4:33.6
My own personal record (on one attempt) is a little over 10 & a half minutes. I don’t think I could run a sub-5 mile unless I was on roller skates, with or without beer.
I’d also like to take a moment to recognize the amazing Martin Luther – he of the Protestant Reformation – who also altered the course of beer history by embracing hops as a flavoring agent and preservative.
Because he thumbed his nose not only at the Catholic Church’s oppressive grip on the written gospel, but also their monopoly on other beer ingredients, we have the beer we know & love today.
I think I’m going to go for a run later then have a nice, hoppy IPA to quench my thirst.
