I call BS.  That would be over 8 gallons of beer.
 
2013-10-21 05:50:44 AM
Yeh, I'm guessing he knew he was done for but thought it'd be good to get himself famous for drinking a crazy amount of beer so exaggerated slightly.
 
2013-10-21 06:27:45 AM
where he recorded 0.108

.108? Thats barely even drunk here in the states. After 90 beers I would think he would have been a bit more intoxicated. Also it's not a schooner it's a sailboat.

i am a well known legendary beer drinker, and i am pretty sure the most i have ever consumed in one one occasion was 24 cans. and i broke bones...

i could drink 90, in say 3 days...but...ouch.

Ninety?  Nope.  Though if he still blew .1 the morning after, he was pretty hammered.
 
2013-10-21 07:31:32 AM
90? Not if he lived to claim he did.

He quit drinking at 6pm the day before.

I can't believe the legal limit is .05 over there.  That's a bit ridiculous.
 
2013-10-21 09:02:03 AM
If he drank 90 beers, was he arrested for drunk boating?
 
2013-10-21 09:02:38 AM
So just a couple beers?
 
2013-10-21 09:02:41 AM

Considering I've been stone sober and blew 0.04 for chewing gum, I would agree.
 
2013-10-21 09:09:18 AM
Well of *COURSE* he had to get behind the wheel.  He only had 9 beers left, and he had to get to store before it closes to start another round of that song.

It was probably natty light, so 90 cans is like what, a 12pk of Sam Adams or the like?

There are a few old school animated images of fellows in a never ending loop of drinking beer and pissing.

To drink that much the dude must have kept his lower tap open the entire time. I'm surprised he didn't smell more like piss than beer. ( Depending on the quality of Melbourne Bitter, perhaps the scents cannot be differentiated)
 
2013-10-21 09:16:15 AM
That translates into lot of pee

NFA: I call BS.  That would be over 8 gallons of beer.


Which, assuming 7% abv, equates to him chugging a two-liter of straight ethanol. I don't really drink at all, but my buddies do, and despite their stamina, foolhardiness, and stupidity, I haven't seen THAT trick yet.
 
2013-10-21 09:19:26 AM
Alcoholism's progressive. Considering the amount of vodka I used to consume in my worst boozing days, I'll believe anything. I don't believe his BAC was only .1 though.
 
2013-10-21 09:23:24 AM
Well I mean every time I get behind the wheel it's after drinking hundreds of beers.  The real questions is how long after consuming the 90 beers he got behind the wheel, because there is no way he consumed 90 beers in a short enough time frame where the first beer was in his system at the same time as the last.
 
2013-10-21 09:24:20 AM
Ok, thats enough for a slight buzz.
 
2013-10-21 09:25:30 AM
Nope. Alcohol poisoning. Thanks for playing.

This is Australian beer, which is likely what happens to wombat piss that was diluted by encroaching flood waters. 7% is 200% more than the average Aussie beer, and 300% less drinkable than European lagers, and has 4600% more wombat than your average American craft brew.

FTFA:
The Western Advocate reported Warren33 was pulled over by police at 6.14am on Monday at a random breath testing station.

Police told the court when they pulled over Warren's Holden utility, they noticed the smell of alcohol coming from the car.

They asked Warren if he had been drinking. He told police he had finished drinking at 6pm the previous day.


So it's 12 hours *AFTER* he stopped drinking, and he still had a 0.1 BAC.

Probably he went on a weekend bender, drinking those 80 to 90 beers from Friday or Saturday through early Sunday evening, passed out, woke up the next morning, then went driving.

90 cans of beer on the wall!

Cars are for normal sized people:

In 1977, "The American Dream" Dusty Rhodes wrestled Andre at Madison Square Garden. Afterwards, the old friends went out on the town. They adjourned to one of Andre's favorite watering holes and took stools at the bar (Andre occupied two). Several hours and some 100 beers later (around 75 of them were Andre's), they decided to head back to their hotel. Andre looked at taxis with the same scorn as most other conveyances and announced that he and Dusty would walk, which was problem because Dusty was having trouble maintaining a vertical position. Andre studied the situation, and a twinkling grin blossomed across his huge face. People who spent any time with the big man quickly learned to watch for that grin. It was a harbinger of danger. It meant that Andre was contemplating something risky, something with potential legal ramifications, but also, most assuredly, something fun.

A moment later, the two huge wrestlers attacked a pair of horse-drawn carriages. Dusty threw a handful of paper money at one driver while Andre hauled the other from his seat with one hand. While one driver cursed and the other scrabbled around on the ground collecting his windfall, Andre and Dusty thundered off in the carriages. They raced through the Manhattan streets, dodging cars and pedestrians for fifteen blocks before ditching the carriages and lathered horses a block from their hotel. By the time the cops arrived, Andre and Dusty were enjoying snifters of brandy in the hotel bar, appearing as innocent as angels. The next day, they main-evented another card at the Garden. Another sell-out. Two pros at the top of their games.

Alright, so assuming 3% ABV, that puts him at just under a liter (a whole vodak bottle!!1) For that entire time period. That's a trick I've seen almost every weekend. Far more reasonable, carry on.
 
2013-10-21 09:56:59 AM
Ive personally witnessed a man of about 250 pounds consume 60 beers over a 24 hour period. 90 is possible.
 
2013-10-21 10:16:38 AM
Well the TFA says he drank between 80 - 90 cans of full strength Melbourne Bitters which are 4.6 ABV.

So 375 mL X  80 to 90 cans = 30L to 33.75L of beer
30 L to 33.75L x 4.6% = 1380 mL to 1552.5 mL of alcohol over a weekend

I think it's doable if you're big and pace yourself out over a few days and you easily still be drunk the next morning.

However it's Melbourne Bitter so I'm surprised he wasn't killed by the horribleness of the beer first. Also that'd run you over $150 bucks for one weekend, beer is stupid expensive down there.

Check your math.
90 12oz cans is 1080oz.
3% alcohol means 32.4 of pga or 81oz of 80 proof liquor.
You have NOT seen someone drink 2.5 quarts of vodak.

That's about 2.5L .   Sure, what I was pretty hardcore I would drink that in a 3 day weekend.

I'm calling BS on this.  After that many beers in one day, he'd be dead.
 
2013-10-21 11:34:15 AM
FTA: Consuming 90 cans equates to drinking more than 33 litres of beer or about 77 schooners.

90 cans in a day? Forget the alcohol; how the heck do you drink that much without dying of water toxicity?!

You're assuming it was done in a single day.  It almost certainly was over the span of at least 2, and perhaps 3, days.

The man himself said it was a day. He might not be the most reliable of narrators, considering how drunk he was at the time, but he's pretty much all we've got. His BAC was .108 twelve hours later, so he was certainly downing some serious beer, no doubt about that.

He may have misplaced a couple of days during the drinking.

That's true, I did make that assumption.  If we throw that out the window though... hell, I drank over 1000 beers!  And didn't even blow over the limit!

He didn't actually say that.  This is what he said:

They asked Warren if he had been drinking. He told police he had finished drinking at 6pm the previous day.
He told police he had consumed "between 80 and 90 full-strength cans of Melbourne Bitter beer and hadn't eaten while consuming the alcohol yesterday".


So he could have been drinking for two solid days straight, but just not eaten anything the day before.  But I'd be careful, because that's a direct quote from the police, not from him, so we're actually getting it third-hand.

Melbourne Bitter is 4.6% - it's weaker than Budweiser which is 5%
