While minding my own business at "In de Wildeman" the subject came up that nobody could drink more than 6 Schneider Aventinus in one sitting. Hearing this I replied thats nonsense and joined into the debate with the locals/bartender.
A quick check of the ABV and I boasted tomorrow we'll see if its possible, thats what 4 triples will get you into
The next day I dreaded the challenge after a longnight of hard drinking, lost count around 8-9Hi-gravity brews & lots of smoking.
So 7pm I sat down with a greasy shorma for dinner and started in on the beer, its a heavy thick chewy beer with lots of yeast. The first 5 went down within 2hrs but feeling its best to take it slow decided to have a smoke break
A walk across the alley to the coffeeshop and a nice 1g joint of Amnesia Haze set the mood just right. Now with massive cottonmouth and a s***-eatting grin I slammed 2 beers fast and told the barmaid thats 7 Aventinus may I have a Rochefort 10
Yeah I did the 10 just to knock it outta the park and leave no doubt I broke the record.
She stood there just looking at me in disbelief and asked the other barmaid 'this be true? Now you want a Rochefort 10?
So after drinking the last beer I asked for written proof to show the group thats its possible to drink 7 Aventinus & a Rochefort 10 in one sitting without becoming a drunken fool.
The nextday the bartender asked how did it go? upon hearing my story he called to confirm the news and from then on they called me Mr. Aventinus
They'll never say an American can't handle his or her drink again
